The Best Moves Ever: Stump DDT

Not every cool-looking move has an organic setup. Take for instance Randy Orton's stump DDT, where he drops a guy on his head while his feet are hung up in the ropes. More often than not, Orton has to push the victim through the ropes so he can get the proper setup for the move in place. However, the visual of the move connecting makes up for the contrivance in setting the table. That variation on the DDT actually looks more like a spike than most grounded variants. Plus, it fits Orton's character. He's a chronic overexplainer, so one would expect his in-ring mannerisms to be detailed and drawn out. Plus, the clip below allows Orton some time to pose, which is a great characteristic of a prick villain.
