Lamest finisher from back in the day?

I know there'll be others on here that will come up with better (aka worse) finishers but what did you think was lame back in the day?

Hulk Hogans leg drop was lame.
Santinos Socko/Cobra was lame (and more recent).

Any others that a 6 year old could have kicked out of?!

You already mentioned Hogan's leg drop.
I was a huge Ultimate Warrior fan as a kid, but the big splash was lame AF even back then.

Dropkick used to be a finisher but that doesn't hold up well nowadays. Same with the sleeper hold and bear hug. Now one is a transition hold and the others a rest spot.

I hear ya about the Warrior, but it usually came after a gorilla press + drop so wasn't too bad really?

I agree that the combo of the two made it a little better, but the gorilla press was always more impressive compared to the splash.

STF

Worst finisher ever.



I'm aware that occasionally he does apply it correctly and cranks the other guys neck back like a proper crossface but more often than not it looks more like lying on the opponents back and massaging their jaw.

MVP's Playmaker was about as lame as you could get. I remember that was some shit they would start you off with on wrestling games when you created a character.
