There are three things noteworthy about this video from 1972:
- Andre The Giant is looking svelte.
- Andre does a tombstone piledriver.
- The announcer calls it a tombstone, nearly two decades before The Undertaker used it. When you factor in that it’s a Japanese announcer calling it an English name, you’ve got to figure that it was invented elsewhere and that the name “tombstone piledriver” dates back even earlier than this.
What do you want on your Tombstone? Huh huh huh…
