Animal would put an opponent on top of his shoulders and turn toward Hawk who was standing on the top turnbuckle. Hawk would jump off the turnbuckle hitting the opponent across the neck and Animal would take his hands and put them under the opponent’s legs and flip him over as Hawk closelines the opponent. Depending on the force used from L.O.D, an opponent could flip and land on their back, their side or even do a full 360° and land on their back. Once an opponent was on Animal’s back, it was all over but the 1-2-3.
