Now, how about we move away from the usual… How about we feature a wrestler? And no, not a woman who’s beside the ring like the super sexy Stacy Keibler. But a woman who’s fighting inside. Jumping up and down and climbing the side ropes to give the other a good leg drop.
Alexa Bliss‘ leg drop… now that is something. Have you seen the Judge Dredd movie? No, not the Stallone one. The newer one where Lena Heady was pushing this drug called slo-mo where everything would be in slow motion when you take it. Alexa’s leg drop to you would be like that… Savor the sight of that leg of hers.
