WWE strongly advises its viewers to not mimic the wrestlers they see performing in the ring.
But that doesn’t stop some fans, who can’t help themselves by to try and do the moves they see on WWE TV on their friends.
That has been seen in a new viral clip, where basketball practice turned into a hilarious WWE spot-fest.
The little match featured superkicks, RKOs, Stone Cold Stunners and Canadian Destroyers, and if we’re being honest, was rather impressive.
This isn’t the first time something like this has happened, and if we’re being honest, it probably won’t be the last.
Back in November, footage of an individual hitting someone with Sheamus’ White Noise in the street went viral.
Sheamus actually reacted to the clip last year, reminding fans that the moves wrestlers do in the ring can do “real damage”.
The former WWE Champion reiterated WWE’s long-time message, telling fans that they shouldn’t “try this at home”.
..lads, don’t try my moves on the street (or the football pitch!) coz this stuff does real damage! As the man says: Don’t Try This at Home..✌🏻&☘️ pic.twitter.com/dn7uLZN1d3— Sheamus (@WWESheamus) November 16, 2021
A clip also went viral last month showing builders on a site working a WWE TLC match, and it was also utterly hilarious.
The footage, which you can see below, saw workers on a building site working a match with ladders and other weapons.

It’s worth pointing out that while the clips shared above may all be pretty funny, the wrestlers we see on WWE TV are trained athletes, and have spent years perfecting their craft.
Even the wrestlers can sustain very real and very serious injuries in the ring, so it’s worth leaving the impressive moves to them.
