In preparation for his much-anticipated rematch against The Undertaker at WWE’s SummerSlam pay-per-view, Brock Lesnar has enhanced his repertoire with the addition of Austrian and Bavarian suplexes.
Said Lesnar’s advocate, Paul Heyman: “My client, Burrrrrrrock Lesnar, is about to unleash a wide range of suplexes from across Europe, as well as a few from the Slovak and Eurasian areas.”
In addition to his standard German suplex (a belly-to-back waistlock throw he delivered at least 45 times per match), Lesnar will now employ:
- The Bavarian Suplex (or “Stein-Hoister”), a belly-to-belly twisting toss
- The Austrian Suplex (or “Freudian Slip”), a pump-handle underhook release throw
- The Prussian Suplex (or “Teutonic Takedown”), similar to German suplex, but accompanied by a high-pitched shriek, at which Lesnar excels
- The Uzbekistani Suplex (or “Uzplex”), which reportedly involves the slaughter of a lamb and much dancing
One thing Lesnar will reportedly not be adding to his repertoire is mic skills.
