Seeing Zangief get shafted like that warms my heart. The first time I did that in a match, I think I may have heard trumpets behind me. Seriously though, this is invaluable vs. shitty online Gief trash, even if it’s a pretty big risk. How many online Zangief players can resist the ultra when you’re standing point blank with him on wakeup? I played a G2 Gief today who visibly went through every move he had, both EX and normal, while I tornado threw him probably 6 times.
But yeah, vs. a Zangief main who does his homework, this will just get you neutral jump SPD/ultra/stun headbutted. Shame, really.
