Manhattan Drop (wrestling)
"Manhattan Drop" is a recent professional wrestling term. It is used on a groggy but still-standing opponent by putting a head under an opponent's shoulder, lifting him up and then dropping him.

There is no indication why it is named after Manhattan, but maybe it's because the wrestling move is like taking down a tall building.
