THE ICON'S FILE #1 - By Khristian Kane
Welcome to the first issue of The Icon's File authored by "The Immortal Icon" Khristian Kane. My computer aborted my first actual issue, so this is all that was left. If you sent me a move and it is not reviewed on this page, please resend it. Thanks, and enjoy...or not, I don't care :)

From: Trezier
Move Name: Voice of Madness
The Move: Trezier sets his opponent up in a reverse DDT. He proceeds to lift the foe as high as he can possibly get his body without getting him.
Originality: Sorry, but still a Reverse Brainbuster. The jumping part is an added twist to the move and gives it more impact. 3/5
Realism: The fact that you have to hold them at an angle where it's not vertical can probably only be done to smaller or just about your size opponents. It's probably extremely hard to do. 1/5
Visuals: Reminds me of a good old Tajiri Brainbuster. Ohh, the days...umm, I mean...nice looking move. 3/5
Final Score: 2.3

From: Habanero
Move Name: Tequila Walk
The Move: Habanero arm bars his opponent and quickly climbs the turnbuckle. At the top he goes the fastest he can possibly go (which is pretty damn fast with practice) across the ropes to the other turnbuckle. He then proceeds to jump and Hurracanrana his opponent as fast as possible. If everything goes well this move looks extremely quick.
Originality: Done a lot in Japan and Mexico. 2/5
Realism: Even though he's going as fast as possible, there would be enough time for his opponent to kick him right off the rope. 2/5
Visuals: Tight move. I like it a lot. 4/5
Final Score: 2.7

From: Destroyer
Move Name: DDFactor
The Move: I wrap my opponents arm like a double arm DDT and i pick them up and fall on my bottom with their head between my legs.
Originality: Backwards sequence of the Wham Bam Thank You Mam done by Danny Doring. 3/5
Realism: Double Underhook piledrivers can look pretty real. 3/5
Visuals: This looks good if done quickly. 3/5
Final Score: 3

From: El Repo
Move Name: Light's Night
The Move: El Repo grabs his opponent in a Russian leg sweep stance but he puts his opponent in a scorpion death drop instead (Head under is right armpit and the opponents left arm straightened out by his left arm.). This leads to a very fast drive (sweep) backwards that smashes the opponent's head into the mat.
Originality: This move is hardly original. 2/5
Realism: Some difficulty putting it on. The impact of the sweep is nice, though. 3/5
Visuals: A pretzeled-up Reverse DDT 2/5
Final Score: 2.3

From: Holocaust
Move Name: Doomsday
The Move: I grab my opponent as if I was going to do a scorpion death drop, but instead I let them go and jump up in the air and land on them with a leg drop. Its like a reverse fame-asser, instead of the person landing face first with a leg drop, they land on their back as a result of a leg drop on their neck.
Originality: I do a version of this move also and as far as I know, like one other person does this. 4/5
Realism: It's hard to imagine that the opponent would naturally be dazed but still able to stand while bending over backwards. 1/5
Visuals: Looks cool, and from the way that you describe it, it's like a Nightmare on Helms Street except from Reverse DDT into Reverse Fame Asser. Nice. 4/5
Final Score: 3
