Sandow. He needs to switch to something more deadly and educative.

Re: Which Superstars need new finishers?

Ryback is in desperate need of a memorable finisher if they ever plan on making him big. Guy is borderline autistic when it comes to mic work, has practically nonexistent working ability and charisma of a pretzel. A marketable finisher alongside his looks is one of the few things on him that WWE could profit of, and profit heavily. Another problem with Ryback is that he isn't nearly as strong as he's supposed to look like, but that's another story.

Ziggler's whole offense is lackluster, which is a damn shame considering he's a tremendous worker. Zig Zag is simply awful. Not even Jericho managed to get Sleeper Slam over as a legitimate finisher. Neither will Ziggler, especially that sloppy weak looking version of it. I know he's a big fan of Billy Gunn and likes to emulate him but you already have Famouser, you don't have to copy/paste his entire moveset. If i wanted someone to fail getting over as a wrestler i would've given him that thing as a finisher. He would've been better off with a damn heart punch.

Daniel Bryan needs an impact finisher alongside LeBell Lock.

Alberto del Rio is the same case as Bryan, although I see they're trying to push Backstabber as his secondary finisher.

Brodus Clay and Santino are right now nothing more then comedy reliefs so I won't even go there.

Cena's both finishers are awful but at this point creative is way past the point where they could simply replace them.

Sin Cara doesn't even have a defined WWE finisher.

Heath Slater changes his finisher every month or so and it's never anything memorable. Although i did love the Headlock Driver he used a while ago, don't know if he still uses it.

Antonio Cesaro needs to revert back to either Swiss Death or the Alpamare Waterslide he did on Sheamus a while back. I see how they're trying to present him as a catch-as-catch-can throwback so he uses the Neutralizer because he isn't allowed to do the real Gotch-Style Piledriver, but I think it's hurting him. Give him either the Swiss Death or Waterslide and you've got major success on your hands. Plus the guy is freakishly powerful and can perform either of those moves on virtually anyone.



Big E. needs to tweak his finisher, it often looks uneffective.

Jinder Mahal's Full Nelson Slam is just random.

Damien Sandow is another case of randomness for randomness' sake.

I won't even say anything about Big Show's punch, that's just...although in all honesty they do portray it quite well.

Barrett should go back to Wasteland. His elbow finisher is awful.

Re: Which Superstars need new finishers?

A lot mentioned, Bryan needs a definitive impact finisher even if its something like a glorified kick to the head.

Back when Cesaro had that rugby player gimmick I figured he could pull of a spear but he's sort of abandoned the rugby thing now.

I actually quite like the jumping DDT Ziggler does, it would make a good finisher but whatever.

Oh, and when Rollins start wrestling he needs to either go back to the super kick or something, just not use his nxt neck stomp which was a few steps away from the 619 in terms of contrived set up.

Adding a new one to the mix, Big Show. I really cannot stand knockout punch finishers, a lot of the time it doesn't look any more powerful than a normal punch. At least when Regal did his punch finisher, the selling point was brass knucks to it seemed legit.

Re: Which Superstars need new finishers?

Dolph Ziggler - Superkick
Wade Barrett - 360 Spinning Side Slam
Daniel Bryan - Roundhouse Kick
Kane - Tombstone Piledriver
Brodus Clay - Running Crossbody
Alberto Del Rio - Backstabber
Antonio Cesaro - Alpamare Waterslide
Santino Marella - Stunner
Tensai - Baldo Bomb
Tyson Kidd - Brainbuster
Damien Sandow - anything better than Terminus

And Sheamus should use Pale Justice much more.

But really, if you got punched square in the jaw by a fist the size of Show's, you could legitimately be knocked out cold.

Re: Which Superstars need new finishers?

How about the WWE decide to tone down finishers and give wrestlers a variety of finishing moves.
