The Birth of the DDT

jericho conspiracy

I am about to answer the biggest question or conspiracy of all time.

Bigger than the 1998 WCW Conspiracy against Chris Jericho. A story or conspiracy bigger than the Roswell UFO landing. Bigger than the 1980 Chicago Black Sox and the assassination of JFK.

Here is the story of the birth of the DDT.

The DDT in professional wrestling is a move where the wrestler has an opponent in a front face headlock, the competitor falls backwards to drive their opponent’s head into the mat.

The move was accidentally discovered by Jake the Snake Roberts when he accidentally botched a move in the ring. This popular move has been adapted and used by several wrestlers.

The earliest known appearance of this move was in the 1970s from a Mexican Luchador.

The DDT has been adapted and changed by several wrestlers. It has been adapted to be used as a finisher. However, you still end up with the same results of the original DDT.

Some may think that the name DDT came from the chemical which is extremely hazardous that is deep in the ground that can cause brain damage. The abbreviation DDT could mean a list of things. Here are some that might have been suggested or it was rumored to be Drape Drop Take-down, Damien’s Dinner Time, Damien’s Death Trap, Drop Down Town, Definitely Dead Tomorrow, and others were listed.

I would not be able to provide you with that answer. Honestly, the meaning of the DDT could be different to each wrestler who chooses to use it as a finisher, since there are so many different variations to it.

There are so many different variations to the move that the list is too long there are both front face lock variations and inverted face lock variations.ddt wrestling move gif

Warning do not attempt this at home! Unless you are being coached by a trained individual or a veteran of the industry.

How to execute a proper DDT.

  1. Get them into a bent over position.
  2. Get them into a headlock and hold their arm so that it is around your waist.
  3. Fall backward.

Please remember that wrestling moves can hurt the opponent if not done properly. This should only be done by a trained professional or with supervision of a trained professional.
