Inverted powerbomb is an Powerbomb in professional wrestling.

Description

Better known as an inverted front powerslam, this move sees the attacking wrestler faces a bent-over opponent and apply a gutwrench waistlock before lifting the opponent up so they are lying across the wrestler's shoulder, facing upward, with the wrestler maintaining the waistlock to hold them in position. The wrestler then falls forward or into a sitout position while flipping the opponent forward, driving the opponent horizontally belly-down into the ground. This variation is commonly associated with Faarooq and Bobby Lashley, both referring to the move as the Dominator.

A first variation of this move used by Japanese wrestler Yutaka Yoshie exists seeing the attacking wrestling running and/or jumping forwards before slamming the opponent horizontally body-first into the ground. This variation is called the Canadian Hammer named by him.

A second variation exists called a double underhook inverted powerbomb in which the attacker and opponent face each other, the opponent bent forward. The attacker hooks the opponent's arms back in a reverse nelson. The attacker then lifts the opponent into an upside-down vertical position lying across the wrestler's shoulder, facing upward, with the wrestler maintaining the reverse nelson to hold the opponent in position. The attacker then falls forward while flipping the opponent forward horizontally belly-down into the ground.
