Elevated powerbomb is an Powerbomb in professional wrestling.

Description

This move, which is similar to a normal powerbomb, was made popular in the United States by The Undertaker who referred to it as the Last Ride. Instead of slamming the opponent directly on the mat from the shoulders, the attacking wrestler would first lift the opponent even higher by holding on to the opponent and extending their arms up, lifting the opponent up off the shoulders of the attacking wrestler just moments before slamming them down to the mat. This move requires a huge strength to keep them up. It is done to heavier and larger opponents from the top rope as a counter to a top rope punching but cannot get elevated.
