Sting's Signature Move



Scorpion Death Drop - Almost a version of the DDT, except reversed, as the Stinger would wrap the man's head in almost a Dragon Sleeper, then plunge backward. This would incapacitate the opponent long enough for Sting to get the pinfall victory, although he would also use this maneuver as a set-up for the Scorpion Deathlock.


Scorpion Deathlock - Similar to Dean Malenko's Texas Cloverleaf and Bret Hart's Sharpshooter, Sting's Scorpion Deathlock is a submission hold that has left many oppponents pounding the mat in pain. With the foe down on the mat, Sting would grab his opponent's legs and twist them around one of his own, before stepping over and turning the opponent's body. Sting then would sit down on the back of the agonizing wrestler, adding pressure to the hold to force the submission.


Stinger Splash - While not a finisher, one of Sting's most familiar moves was the Stinger Splash. When an opponent ended up, stunned, in one of the corners of the ring, they were vulnerable. The Stinger would charge in, getting great height on his leap as he crashes his full weight into his opponent, smashing them between Sting and the ring post.
