You never know quite what you're going to get from Robert Flores on live television, which is why he remains one of our favorite SportsCenter anchors. If you follow Ro Flo on Twitter, you'll know he's a huge wrestling dork. So when hosting SportsCenter with former Raw announcer, former Executive Assistant to Mr. McMahon, and former Interim Raw General Manager Jonathan Coachman, it was only a matter of time before Flores dropped an ode to the sports entertainment world.
That ode came in the form of a DX crotch chop. While probably not in the best interests of ESPN corporate suits, it was well worth whatever stern warning he very likely received. If there's one thing SportsCenter is missing, it's a little bit of attitude. If Stone Cold Steve Austin could wipe everyone out on set with a beer truck during the next Tim Tebow debate, he'd be doing America a service.

@awfulannouncing You lost me at "hosting SC with former Raw announcer ... Jonathan Coachman" http://t.co/urU4A8Oc
attitude era RT @awfulannouncing: .@RoFloESPN gives us a new way to sign off from SportsCenter. The DX suck it sign. http://t.co/p3bPNIHC
@awfulannouncing @rofloespn ahem, that's the DX crotch chop. It should be Ro Flo's patented sign off.
@RoFloESPN @awfulannouncing Robert needs to give Coach the bird, then Stone Cold stun him and crack open a couple of Floweisers.
@RoFloESPN @awfulannouncing Please do that at the end of every show. I watched live and thought I was just seeing things but it was awesome
@RoFloESPN @awfulannouncing Next you have to go "Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages. This. Is. Sportscenter"
If he added "Suck it, Tebow!" to add one word to DX's usual sign-off, he'd be fired for sure. If they're going to suspend him or fine him for that, they'll have to avoid televising any pro bowling matches with Pete Weber. He does the crotch chop all the time and they show that. If Tebow ever crotch-chopped, it'd be ratings gold.
