    When you shoot for a double leg you just shot. A wrestler may have a great shot but saying he has a good shoot is stupid and ignorant. Friggin BJJ guys misusing us rasslers' terminology.

    Clearly this is a serious issue.

    For the records, I've heard it called both, in both wrestling and bjj.

    Because "pro" wrestling already took "spear" and "tackle" doesn't sound as cool.

    Oh wait....

    Probably because english isn't the first language of whoever you're so angry with

    It's a name. No big deal. Otherwise, BJJ guys EVERYWHERE would be on catch guys so hard for calling the kimura/americana a DWL.

    When you fire a gun you shoot it. If you hit your target, someone then says, "nice shot."
    Same for shooting a double. Saying "nice shoot" is wrong.
