With the folks often found putting it all on the line in the pursuit of those precious pops regularly being responsible for finding increasingly innovative ways to add another level of danger and spectacle to their already explosive match-ender, nailing said crowd-igniting finisher - or a "super" version of it - within the confines of a squared circle was never going to be enough for this bunch.

Thanks to either a global pandemic forcing workers to brilliantly think outside the box, or a drink too many on some truly surreal occasions leading to an insane turn of events, the following collection of stars were able to execute their trusty signature manoeuvres in locations that don't immediately scream out "wrestling arena" to the average Joe.
