    I don't watch much pro wrestling anymore. I do occasionally and I did when I was younger. Do they do any of these in pro wrestling? If so, what are they called? I don't think MMA and pro wrestling are as different as most MMA fans think they are.

    First one looks like a Front flip Piledriver

    Second one looks like a Jackhammer

    Third one doesn't look like anything that I recall

    Fourth one looks like a headlock

    First one would probably translate to a backdrop of some kind, it's like a more extreme version of what you'd do if you were trying to reverse a pedigree. Second one looks most like a jackhammer. Third one probably hasn't been done in pro wrestling and if it was the announcers would just call it a unique way to get out of the sleeper hold. Fourth is a side headlock, aka the Orton special.

    Y'all are a bunch of jabronis, the second gif is clearly a slightly modified Falcon Arrow.

    Do they do anything like it in pro wrestling? If they do, who does it and what is it called?

    that guy in the second gif is inhumanly strong...without cooperation to basically be able to hit a suplex...I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it.

    not sure what you're exactly asking but it's a real submission. cutter, crusher, slicer. it's banned in bjj competition for lower belts. i think it's cuz it's mainly considered a pain submission by having the shin cut into the calf where pain submissions have the image of not being a risk for real injury and therefore not worth tapping out to, but there is a secondary risk of your knee being separated and with major lasting damage but without the warning pain before it happens.
