How to Do a Clothesline Wrestling Move

Learn how to do a clothesline wrestling move from Monster Factory's "Trademark" Tommy Maclin and "Amazing" Mike Spanos in this Howcast video.


Hi, I'm Pretty Boy Larry Sharpe. We're here at the Monster Factory, and we're now going to demonstrate a Clothesline.

Slow motion. It's very effective, the Clothesline is very effective. This was probably developed by the football players that got into professional wrestling, that didn't know a lot of holds and grips.

So, what they would do, they'll hook their arm, take into their opponent's upper chest area, not on the throat, and catch them. And just the opponent's weight coming forward, along with his force coming this way, it's the old theory of an immovable object meets a moving object, you know, there's going to be a crash. That is your Clothesline.

Off the ropes, Mike throws him in, cocks his arm, throws it at Tommy's upper torso, okay, as hard as he can, and Tommy's force taking him forward will automatically propel his feet up in the air, which will force him down to the canvas. Now we're going to go through at a little bit faster pace. That is the Clothesline.
