So of all the big time superstars in past or present wresting, who have the worst finishers.

My 2 picks would be Cena and his "AA", and Hulk Hogan with the Leg Drop.

Cena - The "AA" is just a simple slam, a single punch from Lesnar has more power behind it.

Hogan - Its just too damn simple, you would think someone as big as him would have had something really painful or technical, alot of people will probably disagree with me though.

Randy Orton. The RKO is one of the shittiest finishers today. How the hell can anyone buy it? WTF is it even supposed to do?

So getting pulled down and landing face first in the ground is a weak move? RKO is almost similar to a stunner(except the opponent is more horizontal when being hit with the RKO)

Tombstone isn't that great either. The old(and also REAL UNSAFE) version was one that'd really hurt in real life, but the new version, the superstars head doesn't even come close to touching the ground. Obviously done for safety reasons(which is why the piledriver is gone too)

I actually think the RKO is probably one of the best. The name, the look, everything. It can be pulled almost out of nowhere, when you see someone at top rope, jumping down, mid-air out of nowhere the RKO. I think it would look better with blood.

a 300lb man jumping in the air and dropping his leg on your face is bad?
the legdrop could legitimatley kill someone

Flair's figure four is one of the worst, have you even been in a figure four? doesnt hurt at all

Rock's People's Elbow,
Even the Rock Bottom, its like the AA, just a simple body slam that happens virtually all the time. We see people kick out of a top rope suplex, or neck-breakers, but a simple slam to the back and they get pinned? From a realistic point of view, awful moves.

All of these finishers are actually pretty good. The theatrics behind The People's Elbow and the leg drop make them great finishers. Especially the elbow.

He's not a big superstar, but WTF was with X-Pac's Bronco Buster? WTAF?

No, from a kayfabe point of view they utterly annihilate your opponent and render them unable to get up for the three count. From a snarky smark point of view, they are "way lame and unrealistic"

Hello, Big Show's Knock Out Punch. If he can knock someone out in one punch why fuck about with all the chops and slams and shit?

Actually had to think of the contex a few times to realise kayfabe was wrong word.

Its the Cobra most definitely. A poke in the throat is just lame. Considering that the Fed allows guys to kick out of chair shots to the back, slams, drops on the head, etc, such a move is completely unbelievable.

Actually if you got punched to the throat it would be one of the few moves that legitimately knocks you incapacitated. However it's not really a larger than life / intresting move similar to the WMD.

You sure that's what the Cobra is? I've never really seen Santino hit someone in the throat with it. Whether he's suppose to...
