Tight Grip

Zangief grabs the opponent and performs an incredibly powerful German suplex maneuver. Still in position, Zangief will then keep adding pressure to his opponent that has enough power to forcibly drive them through the ground and into a small crater.

If the opponent is knocked out during the move, the opponent will continue to lay motionless inside the crater, with their legs comically sticking up from the ground.

  • This move is arguably based on a popular professional wrestling move called the Belly-to-Back Suplex, or commonly know as the Back Suplex.
