Top Ten Legendary Finishers

Rating: 5 votes, 2.80 average.
Mikey A here again. My first blog was the top ten finishers in wrestling right now and some people did not understand what right now means so I will make a list of Legendary finishers.

10. Undertaker Chokeslam-To me the chokeslam is a fantastic move. Used by Kane, Big Show, Marcus CorVon, and sadly The Hurricane. But the best Chokeslam is The Undertaker's because he lifts him in the air with one hand only and slams him straight back down. Just pure awesomeness.

9. Eddie Guerrero's Frog Splash- I love RVD. I really do, and I like Christian. I also like D-Lo Brown and Chavo, but no one could bring the Frog splash into perfection like Eddie IMO. Eddie was a great wrestler and i personally got excited whenever he was wrestling.

8. The Pedigree- I am not a big fan of Triple H at all, but credit where it's due, his finisher is amazing. Everybody, literally everybody get's excited when somebody gets a pedigree. Perfect set-up, perfect execution, and perfect move, just not as perfect as others. speaking of HHH Brock lesnar is no legend to me, so no F-5 on this list.

7. Ron Simmon's Dominator-
I will get heat for listing this higher than the Pedigree, but it's okay. There is nothing like lifting somebody onto your shoulders about six feet high and then just dropping them straight on their face. I will admit, the set up for this move just sucks, but in AWA, not alot of people kicked out of this move as he became the very first African American World Champion.

6. Sweet Chin Music-I admire HBK alot. I loved his flying elbow. I loved his Manhatten drop. But what I love most is his SCM. When he starts stomping, I usually get yelled at by my downstairs neighbors for doing the same. And then when he nails the kick, it's a beautiful sight to see when someone gets layed out. Can be hit ALMOST out of nowhere but still can be reversed easily.

5. The People's Elbow- This move is a little meh to me, but it has a beautiful set up as well as execution. But it can be reversed extremely easy, just ask John Cena. Look at how it gets set up: "Mankind runs at The Rock only to eat a spinebuster! Wait! The People's elbow!" Excellent, but not the best.

4. Shane O'Mac's Coast to Coast-Might get heat but I don't care. I love it when Shane wrestles because it's like waiting for your favorite part in a movie. When he wrestles, I do not blink as I might miss him flying from one side of the ring to the next kicking his opponent's teeth straight down their throat.

3. The Rock Bottom-Once again, I am a huge fan of The Rock, been since he debuted. The Rock Bottom needs no set-up, just ask John Cena. At WM28, Cena tried to mock Rock's People's Elbow only to get a Rock Bottom out of nowhere. Honestly who really expected that? Not a single one.

2. Tombstone Piledriver- I really don't care for The Undertaker unless he's in a feud with a big name like HBK or HHH. At WM27, I was edgy about the feud, about the match. HHH kicked out of a Tombstone only to eat a new one like ten minutes later. WM28, I literally had chills running up my spine waiting for HHH to once again kick out of the Tombstone, but he didn't. I love the way Taker just drops him right on his head vertically.

1. Stone Cold Stunner-Originally from the Chairman, Stone Cold used it against him and made it his trademark. Hitting a Stunner on just about anyone who looked at him. I still remember whe Austin returned and there was like 20 men in the ring, all of them ate a stunner. No set-up, no expecting. THE BEST FINISHER TO DATE.

Give me heat, it will only make me better, but this list is honest and THIS LIST IS IN MY OPINION.

    You beat me too it! I was going to point out the exact 3 finishers. Gotta have Rude, The Snake and Perfect.

    Here's some more that I would have considered putting on my list.

    Hulk Hogan 3 punches, rope toss, boot, off the ropes, leg drop
    Mick Foley Mandible claw
    Rey Mystero 619
    Ric Flair figure 4 leg lock
    Macho Man Elbow Drop
    Yokozuna Bonzai Drop
    Iron Sheik Camel Clutch
    Sgt Slaughter Cobra Clutch
    Ted Sr Million Dollar Dream
    Von Erich's Claw
    Superfly Jimmy Snuka Superfly Splash
    Nikita Kolloff Russian Sickle
    Goldberg Jackhammer
    DDP Diamond Cutter

    I'm not knocking your list though. It was a good list.

    I agree, that this is all in my opinion and I do like feedback because it helps me to get better. As I have said, I STARTED WATCHING WRESTLING AT ROCKYS DEBUT. I was going to putt the DDT in here as it led to a saga of finishers. Holy crap Ivdid forget Honorable Mentions. I do apologize. DDT And Scorpion Death Drop are two of many HM

    Oh and I've only seen the Canadian Destroyer in WWE Day Of Reckoning.

    Yeah, any list without Jake Roberts DDT in the top 3 is null and void.

    Dude, It's okay. I go way back. I wasn't knocking your list, just educating if you didn't know or haven't seen. Check some of the ones that were mentioned that you haven't seen on you tube. It's good stuff. You had a great list if you were starting from the AE.

    I got 5 more I just thought of:

    Dusty Rhodes Flip Flop Fly
    Stan Hansen Lariat (The original Clothesline from hell)
    Edge Spear
    Jeff Hardy Swanton Bomb
    Razor Ramon/Scott Hall Razor/Outsiders Edge

    You say people did not understand your first blog, I'm guessing that's down to your lack of artistic and influential blogging. Don’tget me wrong, you have created a list, but nothing more than a list - you display facts and very little opinion. Ahousewife does this for the weekly shopping. You constantly attempt to validateyourself by stating, ‘I may get heat for this’ etc. This is nothing more than apersonal thought, and, however, the explanations offer no real intrigue orargument. Everybody has an opinion, and anybody can make a list of moves. This “blog”is just not the place to be reading for any entertainment on this site, unless criticismis all you can oblige.'Give me heat, it will only make me better' - Just stop. Because your irrelevance of opinion is embarrassing, and I do not belive you have any room for improvement.
