Wrestling fans around the world have gone berserk over an incredible “superkick” in the WWE NXT TakeOver event.
The NXT North American Championship between Adam Cole and King Ricochet was predicted to produce the goods, and it certainly didn’t disappoint.
Some have even gone as far as to label the superkick as one of the “greatest things ever seen” in a pro wrestling match.
Fans erupted at the Barclays Centre in New York upon witnessing it.
That super kick put me in the ICU

That superkick may have just passed Shawn Michaels against Shelton Benjamin as the best one ever

Ricochet had Cole in a disadvantageous position when he was attempting a “moonsault” by backflipping off the ropes.
But Cole quickly reacted to Ricochet’s somersault, and that’s when the magic happened.
Cole managed to kick Ricochet “mid-moonsault” in the neck, sending him dazed to the floor of the ring.
Despite the diabolical super kick by Cole, it was King Ricochet who took out the NXT North American Championship.
The decision left some fans baffled.
Exactly! That should've been the match ender right there. That kickout voided the rest of the match for me

Ricochet takes a superkick and then gets dropped on his head and he still kicks out? Those are two good finishing moves for other superstars. I don't buy it. #whobookedthat
