Popularized by: Shawn Michaels
Move type: Strike
It’s not about the move itself, it’s about the wind-up to it. Shawn Michaels turned a basic kick into something truly exciting. To start, he stood in the ring’s corner, stomping his foot to “Tune up the band.” The audience counted along with him and the tension built to unbearable heights. The best Sweet Chin Music moments were when Shawn caught an opponent mid-air with a kick. It looked as hard as a brick, and the opponent hit the mat like a sack of them. There was no way that anyone, with the possible exception of the Undertaker, was kicking out of that.
