Cole needs a new Finish

I love Cole. He's fucking AMAZING. He's got IT. Dude's a straight up star. But he needs a more iconic and awesome finisher.

Don't get me wrong, I like the last shot as a move. Cole's not a very big guy at like 5'7 so it makes sense to give him a move he could do on Big Show or Strowman if he had to. Those two are never taking the Canadian Destroyer ever. Shining Wizards are cool. I don't like that he doesn't have the knee step up, but a hit to the back of the head with your knee in theory is pretty cool. But it can look sort of weak sometimes. And it's just not a big enough move for a guy who should be a big star.

The answer to me is super easy. The knee drop brain buster. He can do it to pretty large(Drew, Roman) sized dudes, as we've seen AJ do constantly. It's fucking cool and looks like it would finish people. I guess I'm just finally tired of striking finishers in this specifics guys case. Strike moves are awesome and I love them, but make last shot a signature.

The last shot is fine it may not look that impressive but he doesn't have to worry about how big or small his opponents are since he can use it on anyone.

I don't like this excuse. Logic like this would mean that AJ shouldn't ever use the Clash, because there's guys too big to take the move.

Which is why he uses the Phenomenal Forearm as his finisher, which can be used on anyone.

Exactly as far as the heaviest he has lifted for a Styles Clash would be Abyss who's around the 350lbs range.

Re: Cole needs a new Finish

If it wasn't so vastly over used now id say the super kick would be a legit finisher for him. But the last shot is good enough because he can hit it on literally anyone.

Well that's what I'm saying. AJ using both the forearm and the Clash AND the crusher to beat guys. Why can't Adam have a strike finish and a knee brainbuster too?

Cole could use the Knee Brainbuster/SuperKick/Panama Sunrise combo on small dudes and use the SuperKick/Last shot on bigger guys that'd he'd have weight issues with. He's got a number of moves that can be used for set ups. But he's strong with the running/Standing strikes.

Re: Cole needs a new Finish

The Last Shot has already been established and gets a damn good reaction from the fans, especially when Cole drops the knee sleeve. I wasn't a big fan of it at first but it has grown on me, and he can do it one everyone. He can't execute the brainbuster on the knee on everyone, I wouldn't mind that being his secondary finisher for smaller matches and smaller guys. But that move has been kicked out of by everyone now. Hell, if Cole NEEDS a second finisher, bring the Florida Key back.
