Popularized by: Hart family
Move type: Submission
The Hart family, from father Stu on down to youngest brother Owen, all went hard in the Hart family dungeon, where they learned the art and craft of wrestling. Bret was the prodigal son, The Best There Is, The Best There Was, and The Best There Ever Will Be, who became forever identified with his Sharpshooter. What differentiates Bret from other wrestlers who perform the move is that Bret does the move properly. So many wrestlers, such as The Rock, stand while executing it, which allows the opponent to easily get away. Bret sits down on his opponent, closer to his lower back. It’s all in the Excellence of the Execution; no opponent is crawling to the ropes after that.
