German suplex

Antonio Cesaro has proven to be fluent in German, so why not adopt one of Germany’s finest exports (aside from pretzels, luxury cars and fine chocolates)? Aptly named after the homeland of its innovator, German grappler and Olympian Karl Gotch, the German suplex is a beastly maneuver that has since been utilized by some of the greatest competitors in wrestling history, including the likes of Dean Malenko, Eddie Guerrero, Brock Lesnar and John Cena. In fact, the move played a key role in Cena’s bout with WWE Champion CM Punk at Night of Champions 2012, which ultimately resulted in a double-pinfall and WWE Title retention for The Straight Edge Superstar.

Although the precarious German suplex did not lead to victory that night for Cena, the Cenation leader knows as much as anyone that with great risk comes great reward. Could mastery of the German suplex bring Cesaro even greater rewards as he continues to put the WWE locker room on notice? Achtung!
