    Based on the context of the story, I'm assuming at 7:14, the story is that Thesz was trying to perform the perfect piledriver. Just in case people were trying to figure out the story

        if you were around for the attitude era, you'll actually remember the evolution of the people's elbow, he really did add a little bit more spice each time he did it, until it became the most over move in the world.

                  This video is harder to watch than a diving headbutt from an already concussed daniel bryan.

                          Finishers should be protected. No one else should kick out of the one winged angel for a long time.

                                      One of the first things inconsistencies in wrestling I noticed as a 12yo (when you start noticing these things) was that guys who did the diving headbutt would be fine if they connected, but clearly hurt if they missed even though both involved them pancaking on their stomachs.

                                          Rumors abound as to what the letters DDT supposedly stood for, including Damien's Death Trap, Damien's Death Touch, Damien's Dinner Time (all named after Jake's pet python, Damien), Drape Drop Takedown Drop Down Town and Death Drop Technique. When asked what DDT meant, Jake once famously replied "The End." The abbreviation itself originally came from the chemical dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, a notorious pesticide, as stated during shoot interviews and Jake's Pick Your Poison DVD.

                                                  LOVE you all. Had to leave a thumbs down. It’s difficult to talk about finishers without the visual representation. We wanna see the finish!!! I know there’s copyright issues, but maybe y’all can figure some way around them in the future.

                                                    7:10 The powerbomb was innovated when "Caribou Lou" was trying to hit the perfect powerbomb on his opponent? Well, then it wasn't an accident, was it?

                                                    Also the origin story for the People's Elbow being number one is a bit shite.
