Just curious,what makes the"Sweet Chin music"super kick so effective?

I've been watching old matches were people have used super kicks before and even though the move seemed very good as an offensive move,it didn't seem as dangerous as it does now.Also,who was the originator of the super kick,the first guy who made it a famous move?

    The effectiveness of the Sweet Chin Music is really based on the selling ability of the person it's delivered to, because it almost never lands flush. If it does land flush it's an accident. The better the seller, the more effective it appears. Though the SCM can be delivered out of nowhere, the smack you hear when it's hit is HBK slapping his thigh. This is done by most wrestlers when they throw kicks of any kind (Orton even does it on his Punt kick) to make them look (and sound) more painful than they actually are.

    The Sweet Chin Music or Superkick (it's generic name) was originated by the late, great Gentleman Chris Adams (R.I.P.), a British wrestler who had his greatest success in the Texas based promotion World Class Championship Wrestling in the 1980's and 1990's and who is most known for his years long feud with Terry Taylor. Adams also competed in WCW and ECW in the late 1990's.

    Its a very basic move that HBK has perfected to ..well perfection. He can hit it on a midget or a giant and its always on target, it snaps and pops hard enough to hear and he can do it out of no where in a flash. He just makes it look so good.
