Re: Top five favorite finishers of all-time

1) The Diamond Cutter = When DDP brought out this move, I knew it was one of the greatest things to ever hit wrestling. I love finishers that can be hit out of nowhere and DDP could counter almost ANYTHING into the Diamond Cutter. It was a thing of beauty. One of the best moments I can recall was when he countered out of Goldberg's Jackhammer into the Cutter. Randy Orton has followed suit with the RKO and has come up with some awesome counters into it, my favorite being when he countered Taker's Chokeslam into the RKO at Wrestlemania 21.

2) Jake Roberts' DDT = In the 80s, there was no more feared finishing move than the DDT. It has become an ordinary move nowadays, but back then, it was the deadliest move in wrestling. When Roberts hit it, SHIT WAS DONE! Nobody was getting up from it.

3) The Sharpshooter/Scorpion Death Lock = I love Submission finishers as well and there are a lot of great ones. The first one I fell in love with was the hold I first saw used by Sting & Bret Hart. It looks inescapable and led to some of the greatest moments in wrestling history.

4) Spear & Jackhammer = When Goldberg was red hot and the streak was on fire, there was no end sequence more exciting than the closers to Goldberg's matches. Him steamrolling over a poor sap with the Spear and then following it up with the image of him hoisting up his opponent and holding him up in the vertical suplex position. And then he comes crashing down with him into a pinning combination for the win. This sequence personified Goldberg's matches at his peak: Short, high impact, , visually exciting, and an undeniable outcome.

5) Flying Elbow Smash = God Bless Randy Savage. I love high flying moves as well and several people used the Flying Elbow Drop, but Savage did it with such flare that it set him apart from the rest. It looked majestic when he did. And by people like Savage & Snuka using their finishers, it opened the door for innovation like the Shooting Star Press & 450 Splash.

Re: Top five favorite finishers of all-time

SPEAR (I just love the move)
Crossface
RKO
Anoconda Vise
Ankle Lock

others:
Piledriver
Pedigree
Not a finisher but a cool move, the running high knee folowed by a bulldog that CM Punk does (is it a "copy" of KENTA too?)


I don't love John Cena, in fact I don't even like him. But I hate the idea that he is the worst! Cena doesn't bury talents. Talents go down the card after Cena because feuding with Cena... is the highlight of their career. Deal with it.
