The Best and Worst Finshers in WWE, Past or Present.

8913 90
Ok, so over the years the WWE has had some fantastic stars and some awesome finishers from their wrestlers, as well as bad, but what is your favourite and worst ones from the present or past and who did it.

I'll put in these four categories (both for good and bad):

1. Finisher
2. Ariel Finisher
3. Submission Finisher
4. Suplex/Grapple Finisher

So for mine:

Good:

1. Stone Cold Stunner - Steve Austin
2. Shooting Star Press - Billy Kidman
3. Walls of Jericho - Chris Jericho
4. Tombestone - The Undertaker

Bad:

1. Leg Drop - Hulk Hogan
2. Hip Hop Drop - Grandmaster Sexy
3. Mr Socko - Mankind
4. The Wasteland - Wade Barrett

Im sure many more of you out there will have a more wider choice of good and bad finishers, but it will be intresting to read.

First and last category make no sense.

Maybe you should go with:

1.Grapple
2.Arial
3.Submission
4.Sudden impact (kicks,lariats,etc.)

Anyway,these are my choices:

The best:

1.Grapple:F5
2.Arial:5 Star Frog Splash
3.Submission:Crippler Crossface
4.Sudden impact:Shattered Dreams-pure fuckin devastation
-at about 02:07

The worst:

1.Grapple:Reverse STO and 200 DDT variations-both great moves overused by about 9 dozen guys in the last 2 years,FU,Wasteland,Kozlov's Iron Curtain,Ezekiel's wannabe Uranage,pretty much most of the "finishers" they come up with these days
2.Arial:Orton's Crossbody-dreadful
3.Submission:Cena's STF-simply sad
4.Sudden impact:Cobra,Khali Chop,Big Slob's punch,The Worm

Random rant associated with this:

People keep mentioning sweet chin music as a great finisher, but deride the AA as a "crazy simple move". I don't want to take away from either move, but isn't SCM just as simple as the AA? it's literally a kick. nothing else.

Yes, but SCM is sold to perfection.

This one doesn't really make a lot of sense to me. As they are the exact same move, as far as the move goes and not set.

Best
1. Sweet Chin Music
2. Crippler Crossface
3. The Razors Edge
4. Walls of Jericho
5. Haas of Pain

Honorable Mentions: Diamond Cutter and The Pedigree

Worst
1. The Worm
2. Khali's Chop
3. Hogan's Leg Drop
4. Cena's STF
5. Overdrive

I guess I should have said the set up instead of the move that I didn't like with the diamond cutter than the actual move itsself, since it is the same move.

Ortons is quick and outa nowhere, which I like.

From what I remember with DDP's diamond cutter was that he was always slower to set it up. From what I remember, he would slowly set up the move, put the opponents head/neck set up in his should and then drop, where Orton sets up the move and executes it in one swoop.
