Arena Football League Player Celebrates a Touchdown By Doing 'The People's Elbow'
You just know Vince McMahon is sitting in a dark room being eaten alive by the fact that the XFL failed. Just kidding, he's more than likely just counting his money by the millions and approving weak, overdone storylines for the wrestling fans that still remain to mindlessly follow along with. Regardless, the point remains, if this is what the Arena Football League has turned into, it has to occasionally bother him that his extreme football league was a one year flash in the pan that failed to produce anything of significance other than a sweet nickname ('He Hate Me'). I knew no one was watching Arena football, but I thought it had still held some respectability as a semi-pro league. When did they start allowing players to not only do intricate 2 minute touchdown celebrations, but also announced said celebrations for them? I guess you have to do whatever you can to gain viewership when your competition, if you want to call it that, is the most monumentally successful professional sports organization in the world.
Hey, I'm not hating. Back when I watched wrestling 'The People's Elbow' was the single greatest 15 seconds of my entire week. Might fall down the Youtube rabbit hole of old WW(F) videos from the glory days later. How could I not? This Jones character had the perfect amount of flare. The 'Rock Bottom' was a little bit haphazard, but Arena football fields probably aren't all that forgiving. Going to give him an A+ for the idea, and a B- for the execution. Simply can't forget to take off the elbow pad before flinging yourself against the ropes. The lack of elbow protection is what takes an extremely time consuming, boring elbow drop to 'The People's Elbow'. Everybody knows that. Also, shame on the opposition for sitting idly without giving someone a Stone Cold Stunner. Jeez, have a little respect for yourselves.
And now, a compilation of the most flamboyant, least efficient, finishing move in wrestling history...
