Wipe the Floor with You


One character grabs and drags another character against the floor or wall. Alternatively, it can be done by holding a character against the side of a fast moving object.

Compare What a Drag for when this is done when the victim is pulled by a fast moving object, and Body Sled when the victim is used as a surfboard for this. See Bar Slide when the person is specifically dragged over a drinking bar counter.
