WWE CEO Vince McMahon casually dived off a platform to show Rob Gronkowski how it's done in an extraordinary clip.
The video shows the 74-year-old climbing up on the observation area in the WWE Performance Center and showing 'Gronk' how to perform the move.
He talks the former NFL star through the process before launching himself from 10 ft high onto a mat, rolling away like it was no big deal.

Naturally, WWE fans loved McMahon's interaction with Gronkowski.
One social media user wrote: "There's no way he is in his 70s. it's not even just the fall look how fast he gets up, I've seen 30 year olds struggle to get up out of chairs."
A second tweeted: "Doesn't matter his age. He is trained to land like a wrestler and he's also in good shape."
A third added: "Vince is such a mad lad, you've got to respect it."

WWE stars Kevin Owens, Rhea Ripley and Drew McIntyre spoke glowingly about McMahon's approach.
Owens stated: "Vince just did it off the platform, ten feet high, just no problem."
WWE Champion McIntyre said: "The boss will not ask you to do anything that he's not willing to do himself.
"He doesn't always have to prove it, but sometimes he wants to. 'You don't have to.' Okay, he's gonna do it anyway."
Ripley added: "It's just proving that he's still the badass that he's always been. And I love it, I love that he jumped off that thing to prove a point. It's a Vince thing."
