• RAW Star Reveals The Advice Brock Lesnar Gave Him About The 450 Splash
Brock Lesnar used to do Shooting Star Presses during his OVW (WWF’s developmental territory) days.
However, when he performed one during the WrestleMania 19 main event during the ending moments of the match, he landed on his head and got hurt.
During an interview with Fightful, current RAW Superstar Shelton Benjamin revealed that he stopped doing the 450 Splash after he hurt his elbow while doing it, and then revealed the advice Lesnar gave him regarding this high-risk move.
Below is what Benjamin said:
“The last time I did [the 450 Splash] I basically got injured. I banged my elbow and I actually had to have surgery on it. That’s pretty much why I took it out of the repertoire.
Then, going further, there’s a lot of stuff I used to do that I just stopped doing. Believe it or not, this is advice that Brock gave me.
He said, ‘If you can hit it 10 out of 10 times, do it. If you can do it 9 out of 10 times, never try to do it on TV.’
I can still do a lot of stuff. I just choose not to because one – why? Two — the margin for error is greater than I want to risk.”
