according to Favreau, a lot of Natasha's moves are actually from Lucha Libre. yes, as in the Mexican wrestling.
That makes a lot of sense, actually.

Probably the most famous person in the US to use that style is Rey Mysterio. He does exactly what I'm talking about - he avoids getting hit and uses fast moves that use his opponents weight and momentum against them.

Mysterio is proficient enough that it's believable when he won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship a few years ago or when he wrestles guys like Dave Batista or Kane who are much, much bigger than him.
