Executed by pressing Light Punch and Light Kick, (the throw command) and pushing backwards near an opponent. Ed begins the throw by pushing his opponent back. While recovering, Ed delivers a devastating body punch that launches his opponent over him. As they begin to fall, Ed steps toward the opposite direction, pulls his other arm back and delivers a massive punch to the descending opponent's midsection, driving them to the ground.

Throw attacks are mainly use to get pass an opponent's defenses if they are constantly guarding. The Cheat & Smash can be used to reset the neutral game and create separation between his opponent. While this move does slightly more damage and stun than his forward throw, Ed won't be in position to reapply pressure due to the spacing of his back throw. However, it is also an effective way to put his opponent back in the corner. If Ed is in the corner, he can use his back throw to reapply pressure, while having enough space to create some meaty setups.
