10 More Wrestling Moves Wrestlers Refused To Take

Which wrestlers are gave german suplexes a hard pass?

It's sometimes easy to forget, when taking in the pulsating action seen going down on various wrestling products each and every week, that this form of colourful entertainment is actually pretty darn painful more often than not.

Even something as simple as a back body drop is enough to leave many questioning whether a life between the ropes is actually for them upon being nailed with such a basic manoeuvre for the very first time.

And with that in mind, it's not too difficult to understand why even some of the more fearless and toughest workers to have ever set foot in the business have certain physical lines they simply feel weren't designed to be crossed in the middle (or outside) of the squared-circle.

Whether due to the fact that they just weren't the biggest fan of falling from a great height into a pretty unpredictable surface below, or winced at the mere thought of colliding with certain parts of the ring at any point in a contest, these wrestlers would do anything for the pop... but they won't do that...

...particular move.

10. Sabu - Test's Big Boot

AEW Full Gear 2022 Saraya

Easily ranking as one of the most daring performers of all time, routinely throwing caution to the wind via his high-flying stunts and barbed-wire antics, it may come as something of a surprise to hear that even the immortal Sabu had his limits.

And one of them involved being nailed in the face by an incoming monster's boot in the closing stages of a match, as it goes.

According to The Homicidal, Suicidal, Genocidal, Death–Defying Maniac himself when talking to PTM's Vinny Vegas (via Sportskeeda), whenever former WWE star Test would unleash his running Big Boot finisher on the hardcore legend, the end results would usually result in Sabu being knocked unconscious.

In fact, Sabu got so fed up of nearly being decapitated by the big man that he openly told Test, "If you can’t work that, you can’t use it." To which the towering titan supposedly replied with a swift, "No, Vince (McMahon) wants me to use it. He told me to kill you with it."


So, despite the fearless Sabu clearly wanting nothing to do with Test's legitimately vicious boot of doom, it seems as though the latter continued getting a kick out of bulldozing the extreme icon.
