Collapsing Ring Spot


What is your opinion of the obviously-staged ring-collapsing spot in wrestling? Is it ever effective in getting a wrestler over as being really powerful or is it always cartoony and over-the-top?

It was pretty effective in certain situations, like showing Brock Lesnar superplexing Big Show, but it has to be done in EXTREME moderation because otherwise it completely loses effectiveness.  And I think that's the case, as it hasn't been done since, what, 2004?
