Looks like graphics aren’t the only thing being updated in the upcoming remaster of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2. One of the game’s famous tricks, the “mute grab”, will be getting a name change to better represent the person that came up with it.
The trick was first performed by a deaf skater named Chris Weddle in 1981, who, at the time, was referred to by some as the “quiet, mute guy”. But deaf and mute and two very different things, so to better honour his legacy, it’ll now be known as the “Weddle grab”.
