Anyone have the video that doesn’t require paying to see it?
Without seeing it and not knowing either team or wrestler; a chin whip becomes illegal when the arm used for the whip “locks”, no different than a headlock without an arm encircled.
If I reach back, encircle your head, grab your chin, it’s legal, but as soon as I take my arm and encircle your head and pin my hand into my inner thigh or torso to act like a lever, it is illegal for the same reason locking around the head with no arm is illegal.
again, haven’t seen the video so just saying facts about the rules, but many comments have said it’s just a chinwhip , but chinwhips can be illegal depending on how the whip is applied since it is a move that involves the head and neck.
Also, I’d have the same question I ask when a dominant wrestler loses by illegal slam when up 10-1 and opponent “took a dive”. Why even chance it?
