  1. Dropkick

    A dropkick is an attacking maneuver in professional wrestling. It is defined as an attack where the wrestler jumps up and kicks the opponent with the soles of both feet; this sees the wrestler twist as he or she jumps so that when the feet connect with the opponent one foot is raised higher than the other and the wrestler falls back to the mat on his or her side, or front. This is commonly employed by light and nimble wrestlers who can take advantage of their agility, and is often executed on a charging opponent, or while charging at an opponent. The most basic form of a dropkick, but potentially the hardest to pull off, is a standing dropkick where the wrestler catches a standing or running opponent with a standard dropkick from a standing position. In order to be pulled off effectively, it requires great leg strength in order to gain elevation. The dropkick was invented by wrestler Abe Coleman, known as "Hebrew Hercules" and "Jewish Tarzan". He claimed the move was inspired by kangaroos he saw on a tour of Australia in 1930.
