Pro-Wrestling-Style Finishing Move of the Day: Anderson Ramos Wins Via Back Suplex Side Slam [VIDEO]

(Props: Giovani Brugnago via DamnSevern)

This quick ‘n’ nasty video was taken two Saturdays ago at a regional Brazilian promotion called Hawk Fight Championship, and featuresĀ a dude named Anderson “Adele” Ramos (seriously?) knocking out his opponent with the kind of high-altitude body-slam that you don’t usually see outside of a pro-wrestling match. Though the move looked eerily familiar, I wasn’t sure what to call it, so I asked our resident pro-wrestling historian Seth Falvo if he could lend some assistance. After doing a bit of YouTube research, he directed me to this video of a “Back Suplex Side Slam,” and further explained via e-mail:

It turns out no one used it as a finisher/trademarked a name for it that I can tell. I checked Undertaker, Dr Death, Bam Bam, Backlund, Taz, Kane, DDP…fucking no one named it anything. Vince McMahon’s famous “Whattamaneuver!” is probably it’s unofficial name.”

So there you have it. The Back Suplex Side Slam. Cue shooting star/piano music.

Adam Bomb hailed from Three-Mile Island. That is classic.

Its called The Burrito Bomb. I used it my little brother.

I got a belt for it, but not the championship kind.

It's called the "all-roided-up" slam. Let me guess, this promotion doesn't test for PEDs.

Looks kinda like a Protobomb. He was going to do a Five Knuckle Shuffle but the ref stopped the fight.

Its called the pump handle slam. A guy from the 90's called Adam Bomb used to use it.

Not even close, but you get points for referencing Adam Bomb in these parts.

Looks to me like an Ore Ga Taue -

Seems like it starts out like a magnum t.a. Belly to back suplex and morphs into a sid vicous power bomb. Still waiting for someone to break out the tully blancherd slingshot suplex off the cage. War that big brown spot on dusty rhodes's stomach.

you were born in 1976 in NC. True or False?

It's like a side suplex modified in mid-air to a power bomb. I give him an A- on technique alone. Good arm placement and height. LOL I'm still waiting for a Stone Cold Stunner in MMA. I'll even settle for an F5 or a Rock Bottom...

...and then he hit him fifteen times in the head and continued to go bananas even after the ref pulled him off and was shielding his opponent's limp corpse with his own body. What a dick.
