Over the years, there have always been moves that bugged me, because IMO they weren't really "finishers" as such.

Hacksaw Jim Duggan/JBL - A clothesline, really??
Jake "the snake" Roberts - A DDT, just a standard move now

And then we have a sub category...the moves that WERE good as finishers, until another superstar just turnt them into a move in their set

Think the Randy Savage elbow from the top, HBK just made this a move that would come before his finisher

Thoughts?

Times change. Sure, Roberts' DDT is a regular move now, but it was innovative then. The elbow was the same way. The clothesline, well... There have certainly been worse finishers. *cough*Lie Detector*cough*

Jake Roberts DDT was the best finisher of its time. Very innovative and the way he did it, it looked vicious.

Anyways, worst finisher ever:

Dino Bravo = The Side Suplex. That's what he called it. Of course it was just a regular side walk slam that any big man would do, and most big men could hit it better and NOT win a match with it. I used to just wince whenever he would actually win with it.

Otungas finisher isnt a clothesline, its called "the verdict" and it is some sort of spinebuster. He actually puts a ot of force into it ( whether he knows what he is doing or not) and it looks like it could hurt.

JoMo's new running knee is pretty lame. The cobra is the worst tho.

You don't like the Batista Bomb, really? It looks pretty devastating to me. I'd have to go with the STO, leg sweep, neckbreaker or overdrive. Most overused and weak finishers around.

The Khali chop and 'head squeeze' as I like to call it were both awful.

Except Khali's hands are HUGE and would crush a human skull.

Miz's finisher sucks
Barrett's sucks
Mysterio's 619 is horrible
Edge's spear since he's so skinny
Big Show's punch considering he's done it for years and no one's ever been KO'ed
Jericho's breakdown and flash back
DH Smith's back suplex
Sheamus' high cross
X-Pac's X-factor
etc.

WHY IS THAT GUY NOT IN THE WWE!?


A fat Japanese school boy that literally rolls over his opponent is probably the best gimmick you could possibly have

also, lol at the latest comment "that should be matt hardy's finishing move"
