The moonsault has been around for a long-ass time now. Top rope moonsaults have been a going concern for decades. Asai moonsaults, springboard moonsaults, the double moonsault, and even selfie moonsaults followed.
We’ve also all seen a standing moonsault at this point, and it’s been a major thing on the indies for like 20 years now, starting with Amazing Red and going all the way through to today’s BEEF MAN STANDING MOONSAULT as delivered by people like Willie Mack, Brian Cage, Apollo Crews and Jeff Cobb.
But have you ever seen a standing moonsault delivered off the top rope before? I submit to you that you have not. Luckily, our old friends Ricochet and Will Ospreay — now in match like one billion in their best-of-viral series — are here to make the most of a broken ring and deliver a truly death-defying maneuver.
Thanks, of course, to Reddit for tipping us off to this spine-tingling act of bravery. And now we’re passing the wonder on along to you, because you deserve it. Whenever there’s a truly wonderful or truly dumb move, we’ll bring it to With Spandex. And this is both. God bless you, boys. Keep ’em flying. And by “’em,” I mean “your lithe bodies.”
