      This might be it. AEW really murdered it though. They put the bullshit on tv and YouTube.

    When it was just cruiserweights or luchas doing it and only as finishers, that's fine because that's their style. Nowadays everybody does it because they still think that people are impressed when they see someone sunset flip themselves

    When wrestling got taken over by manlets devoid of charisma and talent who only know how to flip like they're robots executing a program.

      Interesting that he uses the ropes as a springboard to get up higher, most guys just jump off them as they are.

    When psychology stopped being part of it. Wcw cruiserweights flipped but a good amount of their matches had a story and made sense. Aew and a lot of nxt are just spots to get a pop, there is no story. Anything in wrestling is cool if it is done in benefit of a well-told story

      Nah, TNA (Jarrett's TNA) had the right idea for how to package it and keep it relevant. Carter family lowballing and Bischoff/Hogan wrecked it.

    Still the most exciting form of wrestling. A 20 minute Gunther chop fest isn't over with me brother. The PWG style is the only exciting style in the business.

    The greatest match of all time, Omega is Okada was the perfect combo of pure wrestling and high flying efficiency. Nothing too much, just the perfect administration of everything.

    It never was
    even when people thought it started getting cool back in the 2000s it never drew shit
    every time you put a belt on one of them the ratings and attendance tanked
    people think they are over because smarks are a loud vocal minority

    Ospreay vs Ricochet was the big turning point where everyone started spamming high spots in every match. It had already gotten bad before then, but that was when it fully jumped the shark.

    Thinking about it, I'd say flippy shit stopped being cool once ROH and TNA officially failed to create a homegrown heavyweight star.

    Non WWE promotions relied on small athletic guys as a crutch to draw hardcore smarks, a stable but shallow audience. "Flippy shit" became the default non WWE style and stagnated
