The obsession for overnight fame and popularity has taken over the basic sense of conscience among people. The so-called social media figures end up pulling off the most bizarre stunts in public for 15 minutes of fame. Such embarrassing acts nevertheless make you nothing more than a flash in the pan. In one such incident, a TikToker used a Shawn Michaels-inspired WWE-style Flying Elbow to wake up a sleeping passenger on a train.


The popular humor page, Street Fight Hard, uploaded a video of a chaotic public instance in a recent post. The incident, which took place on a tube train, involved a guy in a red jacket waking up a sleeping man. However, the video went viral on social media, not because he disrupted his sleep but rather due to the outlandish means he employed to rouse him up.

In the video above, a man wearing a gray-colored jacket was sleeping in the train seat. Shortly after, the supposed TikTok personality let out a loud roar and dropped a vicious Shawn Michaels-inspired elbow drop on him. As soon as the former woke up from his sleep, the guy in the red hoodie pretended as though he was not the one who snapped him out of sleep.

Moreover, the Flying Elbow Drop is one of the most familiar moves in professional wrestling. However, what set HBK’s Diving Elbow Drop apart was his way of delivering this high-risk move. Michaels was one of the first people to execute this aerial move from the top rope. At the present time, Kairi Sane uses the same top-rope elbow drop as her finishing maneuver in WWE.
