Also, I checked out the Zombie Timberlake
video that showed up in the related vids. Can anyone say SWAG?
There is some potential danger in that move, and it's actually not allowed in this age group. My son had performed this throw many times, but had gone more to the side instead of straight back (which is allowed). If he had been older, it would have been counted as a "touch-fall" and ended the match, since the other kid's shoulder blades both hit the mat at the same time. However, given their age, my son was actually just given a warning not to go straight back and not awarded any points. He still ended up winning the match (and the tournament), but he was upset that he had done something wrong (unintentionally). Despite the illegality of the move, it was still the talk of the tournament. Many other wrestlers, dads, and coaches were asking me to show them the video on my camcorder. It's a difficult move to hit as it takes a considerable amount of skill and strength.
And yes, he also likes to dance... he started a break-dancing/hip-hop club in 1st grade recess.
