Pulling off insane stunts is something many GTA Online players live for, whizzing off high in the sky, but some police officers just don’t let that type of stuff fly. 

There are a number of different spots where members of the Grand Theft Auto community can perform stunts and tricks around the game’s huge map, with many capturing perfect landings and sharing them online.

However, in what might be the most incredible ending to a stunt we’ve ever seen, one police officer took it upon himself to teach these no-good, wannabe tricksters a lesson – hitting them with a move WWE fans know and love.

The Oppressor MK1 costs a whopping $3,524,500 in GTA Online – the perfect stunt bike.

Anybody who is a fan of professional wrestling, or sports entertainment as it’s known these days, will be aware of the dynasty Randy Orton has made for himself inside the squared circle.

His character might have changed over the years, from legend killer to the Apex Predator, but one thing has always stayed the same – his finisher, the punishing RKO, and it looks like the Los Santos Police Department have decided to add it to their training.

As seen in a clip posted to the GTA Online subreddit by chickenlead, they were trying to perform a huge stunt using the Oppressor MK1. As the footage rolls on, it’s clear that making it to the ground safely would be a tough ask after slamming against a lamppost and flying off their bike towards the floor. Moments later, the cop shuffles into position and lands the greatest RKO we’ve ever seen.

What might be even better than the finisher itself is the fact that the officer stayed alive to tell the story, despite taking the impact of a man dropping through the air at speed.

Redditors have actually been trying to identify the finisher. Now, we would say RKO just because of the element of surprise (even if it doesn’t fully look like the finisher), but some have also claimed it to be a Stone Cold Stunner, or more simply a top rope dive gone wrong.

For those tho have never seen an RKO before, it can be seen below in a video from WWE’s YouTube channel.

Whatever the case may be, though, the move is certainly quite something.

“How’s that for a WrestleMania moment,” TheSDHotel responded in the thread – and we couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.

It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
