Chris Jericho's Lionsault is among the most gorgeous moves in wrestling today and is one of the best among his WWE Superstar brethren's stunning variations of the moonsault.

Acrobatic and artistic, the moonsault is essentially a backflip onto an opponent. Some versions have the attacker climb the turnbuckles, while others deliver the move from a standing position or, in Jericho's case, by springing off the ring ropes.

It's a move perfected and popularized early on in the U.S. by both Lanny Poffo and The Great Muta. The Asai Moonsault, where a wrestler takes his flight from the apron to the floor, is an invention of Ultimo Dragon.

Go Shiozaki from All Japan Pro Wrestling and Christopher Daniels from TNA have consistently wowed audiences with their moonsaults, but who on the WWE roster has the best versions?

The best will be ranked here on the artistry, grace and precision displayed during the move.

Including those wrestlers injured or inactive but still on the roster, here are WWE's top moonsault magicians. NXT prospects Sami Zayn, Adrian Neville and Samuray Del Sol will soon give them all competition.
