Soaring through the air, is a prefered style of wrestiling. Many wrestlers commonly have High Flying in there Arsenal. The High Flying is entretaing, puts fans on there feet and gasp in amazemant.
A perfect example of this is, when Jeff Hardy signals a Swantom Bomb. Everybody in the arena rises to there feet, and watches as Jeff completes an outstanding move.
High Flying gives wrestling the edge, it completes it into action. High Flyers have been around for many decades, and many to come. Some greats like Chris Jericho and Ricky Steamboat left fans draw dropping.
Today I focus on who can excecute these moves into perfection, like Eddie Gurrero he perfected the Frog Splash. Leaping is defastating for some, others suck it up and leap. Five of millions High will make it to the list of The Top Five High Flyers of all time!
5. Jimmy Snuka
Jimmy Snuka comes into the ranks at number five, because of his famous leaps. Snuka has hooked millions to there TV sets. Glued there eyes as he made yet another jaw dropping jumps.
Jimmy has lead WWE to some of the most spectatular high flying moves in history, and in his time WWE didn't really use high flying, so it is no surprise that Jimmy Snuka was a great contender.
Snuka became known for his leaps, when he put on one of the most amazing jumps. In Madison Square Garden, Don Muraco defeated Jimmy Snuak for The Intercontinetal Championship. Afterwards Snuka had a little surprise for him, by jumping from the top of the steel cage, and onto Don Muraco with a marvelous Snuka Splash.
No wonder WWF gave Jimmy Snuka, the nickname Superfly. Because surely he was the right man to develop that name. Snuka is a high flyer no one can forget, and that is why Jimmy Superfly Snuka is ranked Number five.
4. Paul London
When you think of the word Moonsault, you've got to be thinking Paul London. I mean this guy could jump from the ropes about ten feet, and still do a full moonsault.
Paul London jumps could have been the most impressive as anybody, I mean he got The Shooting Star Press banned. He was so good at executing High Flying moves and that is why he got at number four.
London may have not had the strength but he made up for it with his captivating High Flying. Paul is famous for his flying in many diffrent promotions all over the world.
