Low blow is an Illegal attack in professional wrestling.


A direct shot to the groin of an opponent; otherwise known as a groin attack. It is an offense punishable by disqualification. This illegal attack is mainly used by heel superstars or valets to gain the upper hand on their male opponents. Although kicking an opponent in the groin is the most obvious method, the most popular version sees an attacking wrestler drop to their knees and raise their arm up between the opponent's legs, striking the groin with the inside of their elbow-joint. Often wrestlers will perform the strike while the referee is in some way distracted in what is known as a "cheap shot". In lucha libre, this is referred to as a "fault" or "foul".
