Shomenuchi Attack

I used to wonder, is a shomen attack realistic in today's world? Isn't this really a stylized attack form that we retain because of it's historical context?

Yesterday, in St, John's Hospital in Golden Valley, Minn., a man attacks the nurses with a metal pole from a bed frame. A series of shomen strikes, one after another. Bringing the energy, full swings from far behind his head.
