Madusa, who used to be famous for her German suplexes during her career, isn’t a fan of Brock Lesnar’s take on the move.
In a recent interview with “Monthly Puroresu,” Madusa discussed the danger involved with the German suplex, and how she doesn’t like seeing Lesnar execute the move.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On the danger of the move: “You really need to learn it and nail it because if you don’t, you’re gonna get hurt. And then your opponent can get hurt really, really bad. That’s why it scares me every time I see Brock Lesnar try to do a suplex. I cringe every time. Brock does that… whatever he calls a German. I yell every time. I’m like, Suplex City my ass. That is no German suplex!”
On her matches with Bull Nakano in the US: “It was so beautiful. And I keep telling people, with Bull – I mean she knew some English by then, right? But if you could watch our match, we never spoke to each other. We never spoke to each other… You do a move, you go with it, you counter it, and I know you can see some things that don’t mold or anything, but it’s like real wrestling then, you know what I mean? It’s like catch wrestling, right? There’s a few things that you do to the other person without talking so they know that, “Hey, I’m, I’m coming back on a high spot or something” without even talking.
“So like, if I go to throw somebody in the ring, right… Or, let’s say I’m pushing Bull Nakano into the ring – and I always have my hand on their chest. Or, when you’re pushing someone back and the other one’s hanging onto their hand, and I’m pushing back, and then I go to push ’em off. Then my hand goes behind their neck, and you give ’em a little eggy to kind of scratch the back of their neck. And then they know to reverse the situation and put the heat on them.”
