Big Show should start using this again.

Re: Which Superstars need new finishers?

Big Show - Because he has hands the size of watermelons, the KO is decent. But the Chokeslam was way better and he should stick to that.

Damien Sandow - Terminus is a decent move but weak for a finisher.

Dolph Ziggler - Just use the Superkick, he does better than HBK anyway, plus the Zig Zag doesn't look that painful at all.

Kane - I like the Chokeslam, just wish he would use the Tombstone all the time, it's not like Taker is around using it anymore.

Wade Barrett - This guy sucks anyway, but the Bull Hammer is even worse than the Wasteland.

Re: Which Superstars need new finishers?

Cesaro needs a new one imo. The neutralizer is so.....dated. That and it only looks impressive when done against a heavier opponent.

If Ziggler ever goes face, it would be nice to see him use the super kick as a finisher.

I think Wade Barrett is pretty obvious one. What a shitty looking elbow.

Daniel Bryan has actually been winning a couple of matches with a diving headbutt.

Ah, but the majority of random guys on the street aren't the size of Big Show, nor are their fists the size of his. That's why his KO Punch is built up as such a big deal. It makes sense from both a kayfabe and real-life standpoint.

You mark that frame an 8, you're entering a world of pain.

Re: Which Superstars need new finishers?

Barrett doesn't need a new finisher, the Bull Hammer is fine. An elbow to the head is far more believable as a finish than a shitty move like the FU or the RKO where it's nothing but a flat bump on the mat.

The worst offender in this category is Big E Langston. That move doesn't look painful in the slightest, nor does it even make sense.

Ziggler needs a new finisher, the Zig Zag is terrible. The wrestlers want him using the Superkick according to Big Show. Personally, I think HBK is the only person I've ever seen that did it right, I don't particularly think he does it well, but ok, fine.

Cesaro should be using Swiss Death instead of the Neutralizer.

I wouldn't mind if Sandow used something different, but if they changed it, it'd probably turn into some generic flat fall like everything else, so I don't know if I should hope for that.

Daniel Bryan needs a pin finisher. He can keep the No Lock but he won't get everyone on the roster to tap out. I've wanted him to use that kick to the head he does when his opponent is on his knees for the longest time, he just looks like he could take your head off with that thing.

Episode 99 - Superhero Showdown Returns!

The much requested Superhero Showdown episode makes a return where we pit your favourite comic/movie/tv characters against each other to determine who's slighty better! Also we get into news of the new Civil War line-up, Star Wars The Force Awakens, Assassins Creed and undoubtably something else to do with whatever this podcast is about. Thanks for listening!

Re: Which Superstars need new finishers?

Daniel Bryan should use Doug Williams' Chaos Theory as his pinning finisher.


Bryan might be too small to pull off the Chaos Theory on the bigger guys in the wwe. So if that is out, I think the Busaiku Knee would be perfect for him. (Trent Baretta might use this as his finisher, but whatever, fuck him)



I love Alberto Del Rio's flying floatover cross arm breaker, if he needed a pinning finisher - the kneeling opponent superkick he used on Big Show complete with "Let me see your face" bit was pretty badass.

Kane could use the Luke Gallows finisher -


Wade Barrett should go back to using Wasteland.

Ziggler using the Superkick is good IF he can get his let up high and straight enough. The times I've seen him hit it it didn't look as preety as HBK's. And developmental Richie Steamboat otherwise hits a really nice one.

Damian Sandow could use something as basic as the Stone Cold Stunner (to his knees, not butt like Austin did later in career)

Tensai should use the Vaderbomb.

Re: Which Superstars need new finishers?

The Shield - if they must do a group finisher, then PLEASE give them something else than "three men needed for a sloppy powerbomb" making them look kinda weak
Dolph Ziggler - Superkick
Daniel Bryan - Spinning heel kick as impact finisher
ADR - I say steal Kenny Omega's "STOP.... Enziguri" as impact finisher
Barrett - Whatever it's technically called, Abyss's Black Hole Slam thing followed with the KO elbow on the ground (the MMA optic could do wonders for him)
Antonio Cesaro - Neutralizer Piledriver Variation (I know, won't happen, but would be badass)
Sandow - hmmm, a Cartwheel kick or something? I want his cartwheels during matches
Big E.- Clothesline from Hell
Tensai - Top Rope hurricanrana

Losing hair? Gain muscles!
