Professional wrestler Scotty 2 Hotty was reportedly “flabbergasted” when he discovered that his signature move, The Worm, was mysteriously absent from WWE’s recent DVD chronicling the “50 Greatest Finishing Moves” in wrestling history.
“I wasn’t expecting it to be in the top five or anything, but come on,” said Hotty in an angry voicemail left at WWE’s Stamford Headquarters. “Clearly there has been some kind of mistake.”
Hotty attained a measure of mid-card stardom between 1998 and 2007 by performing The Worm, described succinctly on Wikipedia as a “high-impact chop drop with theatrics.”
The so-called “theatrics” of the move saw Hotty leap around the ring on one foot before performing an undulating breakdance maneuver toward his opponent and finally dropping a chop to the chest.
Hotty was reportedly convinced the move would appear within the top 25 greatest moves profiled on the DVD, and was completely shocked that it didn’t make the list at all.
Hotty and Santino Marella — who was shocked by the absence of the Cobra from the list — are said to be lodging a formal complaint.
