Hogan's Leg Drop, The Cobra, The Worm, and The People's Elbow.
The thing about the GTS is that it depends on how the move is sold for it to look devastating. Most of the WWE roster doesn't know how to sell a GTS which is why Punk's version isn't as devastating as KENTA's. Big Show's punch looks legit because he has a huge fist, and most people sell the move really good. If it was someone like Rey Mysterio doing the WMD, then it would be a horrible unrealistic finisher.
A Fireman's carry is not an effective finisher. Next?

As for the People's Elbow, I always thought it was the Rock Bottom that took the opponent out, while the Elbow was just an extra "fuck you".
Well said on both accounts.

I do remember when Jericho would use that move regularly and he had the sense to consider it as a shite finisher.

Everyone knows that move is a joke and it's too much of an obvious answer.
In terms of execution: STF/GTS are effective moves that are done terribly, the GTS in particular is a dangerous move if it goes wrong, and I'm sure the Fed don't want any concussions. Moves aren't done with the same intensity as before, remember the intensity Benoit put in to the CCF? That shit looked so painful.
