An attack in which a wrestler brings the knee up to hit the opponent under the chin as if performing an uppercut. Another variation sees the attacking wrestler charge at a standing opponent before delivering the attack. While running towards an opponent usually after bouncing off the ropes , an attacking wrestler would leap up into the air, before connecting the forearm smash. The wrestler makes a punching motion, but tucks their hand towards the chest so the elbow and forearm make contact. Properly speaking, an uppercut is a punch used in boxing that usually aims at the opponent's chin. These are attacks performed by striking the opponent's neck, shoulders or chest with the edge of a hand. A variation where the wrestler grasps one of the opponent's wrists firmly with both hands and pulls the opponent's arm towards them.
