Guillotine leg drop

Guillotine leg drop

Named after the execution device that made heads roll during the French Revolution, the guillotine leg drop has had sports-entertainment aficionados screaming “Sacrebleu!” for decades. Less lethal than a descending blade, this maneuver is dangerous nonetheless, and is most effective when a downed opponent’s head is suspended over the outside of the ring for an excruciating collision of leg and sternum.

The guillotine leg drop has been put to great use by The Undertaker, appropriate for The Deadman given the move’s moniker. Yet, while Death Valley is a far cry from the streets of Paris, Antonio Cesaro’s homeland of Switzerland sits at France’s border. If put to use by Cesaro, the guillotine leg drop could help the United States Champion start a “Swiss Revolution” here in WWE.
