    Default Best Northern Lights In the Business (Ever)!



    Upon reviewing the latest Raw Big Daddy Meltz quipped that A-Fox has the best Northern Lights Suplex he's ever seen. The bridge with the tippie toes is always impressive and can't say I've ever didn't like seeing it. Do you agree? I mean, of course you do.

    It's certainly the most aesthetically pleasing one out there, but that one on the gif lacks impact and she bridges so high that it barely counts as a cover. Generally though her Northern Lights are very good.

    Hard to find any competiton as I struggle to think of anybody who used the move prominently. The only example that comes to mind is Jun Akiyama, whose Northern Lights was pretty average, and the Exploder took over as his main finish early in his career. There are probably guys in the 80s who used it as a finish but that's not my area of expertise.

    For whatever reason it was Matt Hardy's finisher in the first SD! game IIRC. Not sure if he was using the Twist of Fate at the time, but probably since it seemed so odd.

    Benoit, Liger and Hase would all be on my list. They had more snap to their versions.

    Makabe's is awesome, especially considering he's a big bruiser guy

    ( ?_?) - 97% of PW suddenly think Michael Cole is awesome. If you're part of the 3% that still thinks he is an annoying tool, copy & paste this into your sig.

    Alicia's is certainly up there. It's the only move she can do extremely well.

    Baker beat me to it, Taz had a good one. Ken Shamrock also had a good one that he would use in shoot style matches in Japan:



    ^hits one at 8:23 of this match



    ^Even better one at around 10:56 of this one

    Fuck, no slight to Alicia Fox (who I do admittedly love and think is underrated/underappreciated), but goddamn do I hate that we never got a real life program pitting Taz against Shamrock. The suplex beauty fest would'v been a thing to behold.

    I plan on booking this in pretty much every PW draft. Somebody always beats me to it.

    Justin Mane has a fun variant.

    First one I thought of was Taz. Taz always looked like he was going to land on his own ankles. It was some impressive flexibility for a man built like a bowling bowl.
