WWE posted an article entitled “15 of WWE’s All Time High-Risk Finishers” where they take a look at the finishers that has a high risk. Rey Mysterio’s 619, or a tiger feint kick. They posted:
Named for the area code of San Diego, Rey Mysterio’s hometown, the 619 is a perfect distillation not only of the masked Superstar’s fearlessness in the squared circle, but also of how a finishing move can result in its executor being finished himself.
The 619 requires an opponent to be dazed and draped over the second rope. Gaining momentum by bouncing off the far side ropes, Mysterio sprints across the ring and spins between the cables to land a crushing feint kick on his foe. Many Superstars have been decisively finished just this way.
But the 619 requires not only extraordinary skill and athleticism from the Superstar who is attempting it, but also necessitates its executor to turn his back on his opponent — a recurring “no-no” on this list. If an adversary ducks or moves off the ropes during the lengthy set-up, this finisher will not work. It could even backfire terribly, as leglocks, powerbombs and backbreakers are all effective counters.
Brutally effective when landed, but hazardous to even attempt, the 619 is an “all-in” move and should only be practiced by a talented and fearless competitor. Although the high-flying Mysterio is certainly that Superstar, even he can be caught sometimes.
