    Next time you are wrestling, give this move a shot:

    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/qrrXB4JmSok&hl=en"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/qrrXB4JmSok&hl=en" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

    Hilarious! How standard in wrestling is this move...?

    Impressive, but that's got too low of a percentage of success to use regularly. You'll wind up pinning yourself more often than you succeed.

    That was pretty insane, But why didnt that wrestler just let go of his leg as he flipped and sprawled ontop of the other guy?

    No,but i guess it is easier said than done and it would be really tough to predict when someone is going to backflip.
