Argentine powerbomb is an Powerbomb in professional wrestling.

Description

The wrestler places their opponent face-up across their shoulders, as in an Argentine backbreaker rack, hooks the head with one hand and a leg with the other, and the wrestler will then spin the opponent's head away from the wrestler, dropping the opponent down to the mat. Often the wrestler drops to a seated position while spinning the opponent.

The move is most greatly recognized as the finisher of female Japanese wrestler Lioness Asuka, who dubbed it the Towerhacker Bomb. However, this move is also known as a Rack Bomb (a shortened portamentau of this maneuver's actual name) after being popularized in America by Adam Pearce.
