AEW Fight Forever has finally arrived after months, and years, of confusion and mystery.

The game has been released to mixed reviews but, overall, the player seems to be enjoying this new arcade-like release.

One thing that has proven to cause headaches is the controls, with AEW Fight Forever lacking a clear guide.

Fear not, as we've got you covered for some of the key controls you need to know in the game and this time we're focussing on throwing your opponent over the top rope.

In order to throw your opponent over the top rope, you will need to first enter a standing grapple and then press L2 (PS5), or LT (Xbox).

To break that down further:

  • Grapple - X (PS5) / A (Xbox)
  • Throw opponent over top rope - L2 (PS5) / LT (Xbox)

Another key thing to note when looking to successfully dump your opponent out of the ring is their health bar.

Attempting to throw an opponent over the top rope in a mode like a Casino Battle Royale requires you to have drained your opponent's health.

If you attempt to throw them over the top rope without draining their health, there is every chance they will escape the attempt and turn it back onto you.

Seeing as it's the very first task you face in the game's Career Mode, learning this skill is vital to any potential success in AEW Fight Forever.
