It's astonishing how much his longer hair accentuates the move and makes it more badass. Which is something I would absolutely not say about anyone else.

Every time they show a slo-mo replay of AJ flying across the ring like a literal comic book figure, I cry a little inside that they call Roman's little hopping thing a "Superman Punch".

MMA has a Superman Punch but it's not at all what Roman does.

He's emulating the stab move Brad Pitt does a few times in Troy. He's admitted it in interviews.

the only difference is that Roman's version has more theatrics and slighlty different footwork than what you would normally see in MMA, but seriously, it's professional wrestling

doing extra theatrics so the entire audience can see what you're doing is half the charm

If you want to ignore what slightly means entirely, okay sure a running leap is slightly different footwork from a kick feint.

Which'd be fine except in this case, the Superman Punch as Roman does it looks like complete rear end and the MMA Superman Punch looks really cool.

what, that roman doesn't do a kick feint before and can use both legs as he leaps forward and punches a dude in the face instead of the traditional one where someone feints a kick before leaping forward off of the front leg and punching a dude in the face

it really isn't all that obvious if you are watching it live, especially since most WWE camera work these days tends to try and follow the impact, so they don't always show the legs, just the punch

If you can spot the difference, thats good, but the more important aspects of a leaping punch are the actual leap and the actual punch, not that it has to start with him balanced slightly on one leg, and if that has to be sacrificed so it's easier for the crowd to recognize and respond to it, that's not a bad thing and simply something that differentiates professional wrestling from actual fighting.

Because CM Punk proved that ripping off a swords & sandals movie and then immediately following up with a comic book reference makes people like you.

roman doesnt do the same type of punch as a superman punch. There are different kinds of a punch. you probably didn't know that. God damnit

You're all missing the real point which is that when someone asked about the superman punch he didn't know who superman is.
