Your least favorite wrestling moves

I'm not talking about which wrestler you hate and what their finisher is. I'm referring
to moves that you just don't like seeing, but people insist on having in their repertoires.

I'll start with two moves that I find unbearable, no matter how good the match:

Catapult: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yxg41ALLMig#t=8m4s
Atomic Drop: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzG_yrQQIhg#t=5m18s

Re: Your least favorite wrestling moves

The catapult is a real pet hate of mine. It looks terribly fake. Another one in a similar bracket is a badly taken arm drag. It's rarely the person delivering the move that ruins it, but many wrestlers reciving the move often run in to it, offering their arm to the opponent as they go, it just looks unconvinincing and throws me off when I watch.

The abdominal stretch often looks lazy when wrestlers don't sell it well. Triple H and Shawn Michaels made it look good, but it often slows the pace down to painful levels of dull.

Also, and unfortunetly the Mandible Claw is the only one that springs to mind right now, but I dislike ANY MOVE that requires the announcers to explain to the audience WHY IT HURTS. If the wrestlers can't make that look obvious in the ring then it's a redundant move.

And of course...punches thrown by John Cena.

Re: Your least favorite wrestling moves

When they're standing on the outside of the ring and one guys rams the others back into the apron. I hate that.

Re: Your least favorite wrestling moves

Oh my God, I can't believe nobody's mentioned this yet, but the worst offender of them all is by far:

When a wrestler ALWAYS whips his opponent into the ropes and then FUCKING DUCKS which oh-so-coincidentally gives the opponent a great opportunity to KICK HIM IN THE FUCKING FACE!!!!

God I hate that so much.
