I know that, I mean't a signature move. Like how Sheamus's signature move is the irish curse backbreaker, Triple H with the spinebuster, Taker with the chokeslam/old school, etc. Not finishers.

I kinda feel like he doesn't do the midnight special because Sheamus uses White Noise and both are kinda've the same finisher, either that or they just never think about doing their finishers (minus the spear and that one move Seth does).

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread II

There doesn't seem to be too much emphasis on their finishers, because most of their wins seem to be wins of opportunity.

Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread II

I think eventually when they split up they will get their own finishers and styles. Right now its just them kicking ass like a bad ass group

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread II

Reigns and Rollins have got about three each to use, so they'll be okay. I'm holding out on Ambrose busting out the Crossface Chickenwing.

I'll actually be tuning in tonight. I don't do that with Smackdown very often.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread II

Ugh I hate that Midnight Special finisher. There's nothing special about it.

Knee Trembler/Crossface Chickenwing/Rings of Saturn/Regal Stretch please.

better than the best.

Knee Trembler... meh. It works as a finisher but Sheamus already uses a running knee.

I like the idea of Ambrose using the finishing moves of those he feuds with. I mean, he has his regular finisher's, like Crossface Chickenwing and the Midnight Special, but during intense rivalries he'll adopt his opponent's moveset to use against them.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread II

Sheamus has stolen all the finishers. Dude has like 3 or 4 finishers, doesn't he?

I like the Knee Trembler simply because it's a nice gesture to Regal, and Ambrose does that gunshot signal with it. Looks devastating too. Not something Cena would ever be pinned by, but hey.

better than the best.

Yeah I might have misread your post as finisher, the DDT looks like a signature. Ambrose does a great job of planting it.

Like you said White Noise means Ambrose can't use it, and I don't feel like they would have Ambrose use a submission while part of a stable. I could see the Knee Trembler being used, though I don't know how much that may remind the powers that be of Orton's punt kick.

Reigns' spear and Rollins' flying knee to the head are more signature moves.

BTW pardon my ignorance but I don't remember seeing The Shield use their triple team powerbomb on anyone during one of their matches, only on run-ins. Can anyone confirm or deny this for me please?

Ryback, through the Spanish announce desk, at TLC. And after Rollins nearly decapitated himself on that table, off the ladder, Reigns & Ambrose double powerbombed Daniel Bryan through a table in the middle of the ring.

Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne.

Confirm, they usually do it after matches.

It'd be too much to do it in a tag match.
