Chat Transcript: My name is Travish and I can’t find the information I am searching for.
[Slingshot Libarian 10:20:01]: Librarian ‘(Censored)’ has joined the session.
[SL 10:20:08]: Hi, I’m (Censored), a librarian helping to answer questions for your library. I am reading your question now to see how I can help you.
[SL 10:20:19]: What information are you looking for?
[Travish 10:21:06]: I am trying to see who has used the slingshot suplex. All I have so far is Tully Blanchard.
[SL 10:21:41]: I’m not familiar with the slingshot suplex.
[SL 10:22:00]: Can you tell me more about it?
[Travish 10:23:23]: It’s a devastating finishing maneuver. Whilst grappling your opponent, you suplex them with the leverage of the ropes to ensure victory.
[Travish 10:24:09]: I am writing a paper on the history of the slingshot suplex, and I need to know if anyone other than Tully Blanchard has used this move
[SL 10:25:00]: Alright, thanks, let me see what I can find.
[SL 10:28:18]: I wonder if you’ve looked at wikipedia’s entry for this.
[SL 10:28:39]: Wikipedia is not always the authoritative source to use but
[SL 10:28:55]: often it’s an excellent source for getting links to other, authoritative pages.
[SL 10:29:00]: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suplex
[SL 10:29:25]: Otherwise I’ve not found a specific answer to your question above.
[Travish 10:30:56]: It doesn’t look like they list who uses it on wikipedia, they don’t even mention Tully Blanchard!!
[Travish 10:31:40]: Maybe no one else has ever done it?
[SL 10:33:31]: Your same question is posted on the board page I just sent to your screen.
[Travish 10:34:12]: I can use this information, but is it a primary or secondary source?
[SL 10:35:46]: Both I would say. Primary in that it’s direct communication; but secondary since it’s not officially sanctioned information.
[Travish 10:37:01]: I have to use two (2) primary sources and four (4) secondary sources in my paper.
[SL 10:38:14]: Ok, a reference book would be your secondary source.
[SL 10:39:03]: Which category of wrestling is your project on?
[Travish 10:39:49]: History
[SL 10:39:51]: Professional, heavyweight, freestyle, or ?
[Travish 10:40:33]: Oh, professional.
[SL 10:40:58]: https://unitedworldwrestling.org/organization/history
[SL 10:41:15]: There’s a section on Professional Wrestling on the page I just sent over.
[SL 10:41:23]: This would be a secondary source.
[Travish 10:41:53]: Excellent, thanks!
[SL 10:42:12]: I won’t send this page over but you can look at it later; it’s another history page like the first one.
[SL 10:42:14]: http://www.athleticscholarships.net/history-of-wrestling.htm
[SL 10:43:13]: And another page: http://wrestling.isport.com/wrestling-guides/history-of-wrestling
[Travish 10:43:35]: Oh wow, THANKS!
[SL 10:43:54]: As for a primary source you might be able to find biographies about famous wrestlers at your library.
[SL 10:44:32]: These should get you started.
[Travish 10:44:44]: Would a youtube video of a match be a primary source?
[SL 10:44:51]: Yes.
[Travish 10:45:12]: THANK you for all your help!!
[SL 10:45:23]: You are welcome!
[SL 10:45:40]: Bye now, and good luck with everything!
[Travish 10:45:58]: THANKS!!!!!!
I almost wrote about the Rude Awakening, but I thought the slingshot suplex would be better for a history paper since it is older!
