The wrestling department are all currently otherwise indisposed and so the following is written by someone with little knowledge of the sport. His condition is principally a legacy of his deprived upbringing growing up without were known as 'the channels'.
Either way, today it was confirmed that Finn Balor will get a chance to fight for the newly formed WWE Universal title at the Summerslam (big stuff, by all accounts) on the 21st of August.
Most interestingly of all, and in a loving nod to Irish history, his signature finishing move is known as 'the 1916'. We were curious to see what it looks like but we also can't help thinking 'the 1916' is an inappropriate name for a wrestling move.
Keen students of history might have imagined that the 1916 would involve sitting watchfully in a cage and allowing your opponent to come on to you.
This is a move which we couldn't see working out any better in a wrestling ring than it did in Dublin one hundred years ago.
We can't help but thinking the 1920 might have been a more appropriate name for it, a move which would no doubt have involved ambushing your opponent before he had even stepped in the ring.
There are, it transpires, videos of Finn Balor performing his patented '1916 move. It is a rather more proactive move than the name suggests, though we don't see many echoes of what went down in the GPO a century ago. It involves picking up a prone opponent and dropping them on their head.
