Moves that wrestlers should stop using because they don't look good?

Simply as that, moves that you think some wrestlers don't know how to apply to make them look good and they should stop using. Off the top of my head:

Charlotte's moonsault to the inside (her moonsault to the outside of the ring looks fine)

Becky's top rope drop kick

Rollins ripcord knee

Roman's corner clotheslines

Miz "It" kicks

Shane's punches

Jeff Hardy's version of the Twist of Fate

AJ's stylin DDT (this is a bit controversial since it still kinda looks decent, but I am not sure if it is because of his opponents or because age is catching up to him, but the move doesn't look as good as it did when he was on NJPW)

The only move that really irked me when watching was john cenas running shoulder blocks before the 5 knuckles shuffle.

Though there have been worst cringier moves, those shoulder blocks pissed me off for awhile even more so than his stfu.



Celebrating Kofi's hopeful Main Event push.

Anyone who spams the crap out of the Superkick.

Nothing and I mean nothing is worse than 5 knuckles shuffle. That move does not belong in WWE let alone in main event.

Opponent runs around just fine and then gets hit with couple of moves that set up 5 knuckles shuffle and then lays there motionless and then 250 pounds monster drops punch on him and suddenly opponent gets all this new found strength to get up and instead of dodging it just runs into AA (which also does not do much damage considering its simple drop on your back) and gets pinned.

There are other ridiculous moves in wrestling like Worm, Cobra, etc but they are not used by likes of Cena, but but mid carders and jobbers.

Taminas splash, insult to her father.

I agree Shane's punches are massively irritating

Everyone doing suicide dives and or a tope over the top rope. Stop doing this shit on throwaway television matches, it makes the high spots mean nothing and you run the risk of an injury.

Aleister Black needs to stop doing his dumb 'springboard moonsault into sittind down' thing. What's the point of it, apart from getting a cheap pop?

Kairi Sanes spear. Shes just way too small for it too look good.

Baileys Bailey to Belly. Not that she executes it poorly. It's just terrible as a finisher.

I might be in the minority, but I dont like Nakamuras 360 suplex thingy.
