Top 5 Wrestlers Who Need a Submission Finisher

Hi, I've seen lots of forum posts on this subject so I though I'd blog on the top 5 wrestlers who need to use a submission finisher (or need to start using their submission finisher more).
5. Sin Cara
Finisher: La Mistica
Submission he should start to use/use more: Add in the Fujiwara arm bar at the end
This finisher looks great but it doesn't look like it could keep someone down for the three count. When he used to do it in CMLL, he'd apply the Fujiwara arm bar at the end which makes the whole move look much more painful. I know Alberto Del Rio also has an arm bar as his finisher but they apply it completely differently . I did see him use it recently as a submission and it looked much better.
4. CM Punk
Submission he should start to use/use more: Anaconda Vice
Go to Sleep is a good finisher and it looks great when done correctly. However when he faces slightly bigger opponents like Kane the move just doesn't look right. Anaconda Vice is a great finisher and i remember him using it a lot in his feud Vs. Undertaker. He has started using it slightly more though which is a good thing.
Submission he should start to use/use more: Regal Stretch
Whilst Killswitch is a great move it can take a while to apply and opponents often escape from it. I think he could perform Regal stretch well and it would add to his move set even if he only used it mid-match at PPV's to wear down his opponent.
Finisher: What's Up
Submission he should start to use/use more: Batista Bite
When he comes back it would have to depend on whether he becomes a face. This move is easy to apply and What's up is quite generic and used as a common move by some wrestlers so he needs a better finisher for when he comes back.
1. Wade Barrett
Submission he should start to use/use more: Edgecator
Wasteland is quite a generic finisher and i've always preferred Edgecator to the Sharpshooter. It looks like a very painful move and i'm happy that Edge brought it back towards the end of his run.
I look forward to reading your comments!
