Describes a wrestler who makes impactful contact with another wrestler during a match. This can be a stylistic choice, to make the match more realistic, or it can be accidental, like when Seth Rollins broke John Cena’s nose by mistake. Wrestlers might also work stiff to punish disrespectful wrestlers, as the Acolytes did to Public Enemy in the clip above.
