The standard way to take Finn Balor’s Coup de Grâce is to be flat on your back and unmoving. That’s the safest way to provide a stable landing for Finn and protect you both. Now look at the way Sami takes it. When Finn leaves the turnbuckle, Sami’s still on his side, not in position yet! He rolls into the right spot as Finn is coming down, meaning Finn started the move with nothing but faith Sami would be there to take it. It looks more dynamic–and is also more dangerous.
