    Philip Cmor wrote: Olympic in the 1950s. He was using the “Irish Cannonball” as his finisher — from a standing position, he’d grab one of his opponent’s legs as a lever and then do a jumping seatdrop, holding onto the leg to go right into a cradle. He always set up the move with a double-foot stomp.
