A stunt gone wrong at the Billboard Music Awards yesterday put wrestling into the spotlight as singer Miguel attempted to jump from one stage to another which resulted into a nasty looking finish.
The 27 year old attempted to jump over a pit with fans during the live awards ceremony and while he barely made it on the other end, he landed on two fans, leg dropping one of them and landing on the hand of the other one. The leg drop was picture perfect unfortunately for the female fan, a leg drop which even Hulk Hogan himself admitted that it was done right!
“MIGUELAMANIA at least he did it right brother,” Hogan wrote on Twitter today.
Many entertainment websites compared Miguel’s leap to Hogan’s leg drop and the name of Rey Mysterio even started trending during the show as fans started comparing Mysterio’s flying leg drop to what they saw on TV. Hey, what about Fandango’s finisher?
The clip even got the Jim Ross treatment, with Ross’ commentary from the Mankind vs Undertaker Hell In A Cell overlapping the Miguel leg drop and landing! Genius!
