Did you ever see a bump in a wrestling match that looked so sick that you bugged your eyes out and cringed a bit? If so, you saw someone going Full Ziggler. I know Dolph Ziggler is not the first guy ever to make people fear for his life in a wrestling match, but that's become his calling card, hasn't it? I figure that if we were ever going to have a rating for how bad a bump looked, he'd have to be the standard, right?

With that in mind, I introduce to you the STAAAHP ZIGGLER STAAAHP Bump Intensity Scale:

As you can see, it's possible to exceed the Full Ziggler, but that's on in the rarest case where you're sure the guy could be dead. The latest example was at Final Battle where El Generico got spiked through a ladder by Kevin Steen. So yeah, here's the scale. Reference it as you will.

For those wondering, yes, I am developing the HOSS Scale, but that takes a lot more research. Why? BECAUSE HOSSES ARE SERIOUS BUSINESS, THAT'S WHY.
