Maven On Why Chops Were The Most Painful Move In WWE During His Time There

Former WWE star Maven recently took to an episode of his Ask Me Anything show on his YouTube channel, where he talked about a number of topics including why chops were the most painful move in the company during his time there.

Maven said, “Anytime someone says wrestling is fake, let them take a chop. Let them take a chop from Gunther, let them take a chop from Big Show. Big Show chopped me one time and I had his entire handprint on me. Basically, a chop is just a snack and it will, if you take enough of them, open up the skin. It will actually cut you. It will make you believe. I remember wrestling Ric [Flair]. Ric would chop me and you would hear, ‘Wooooo!’ and everybody getting excited and then they would kind of be quiet because they knew another one was coming. If you heard that crisp clap sound, you knew that it was painful… Chops are one of the most painful moves in WWE.“
