    Ryback/Langston

    Many were complaining a couple of months ago about how terrible Ryback's finisher is.

    Truth is it just isn't - especially in comparison to this Langston fellow.

    Big E Langston has the worst finisher since Monty Brown's Pounce. It looks like a body slam or something that went wrong. I watched him give it to Cena and I thought Johnny had reversed it, and I expected Cena to get up and fight back in one of his stupid Cena comebacks. If he continues to use this as his finishing move he will be nothing more than a joke.

    So what should Langston use as a finisher? If he tweaked it to make it look more like an inverted neckbreaker then maybe he could keep it.

    Also if anyone does think his finisher is better than Ryback's I would like to know the reason why...

    I disagree... that finisher looks dominate.

    Ah yes, Big E's "Big Ending". I gotta admit, I do find the move a bit...Strange. But, who knows, it might grow on me. As for Ryback's finisher, I actually like the "Shell Shock" but Ryback should get a second finisher for when he faces much bigger opponents.

    Finishers are not nessecary in a tables match...

    Why is there always so much hate on the pounce? I liked that finisher and I thought it fit him perfectly.

    But I agree with you about Langston's finisher, it doesn't look like a finisher to be honest it doesn't even look like it hurts that badly. But at the same time I'd hate for him to just get stuck with some generic big man finisher like a powerbomb and body slam. If I were to choose hsi neck move I'd have him press the opponent above his head to show off his strength and then spin him down with a spinebuster, he looks strong enough to pull it off.

    " i'd hate for him to get stuck with some generic big man finisher like a powerbomb and body slam".

    At least these moves look painful, and are painful to some degree because i have had both done to me and no matter how you try to soften the fall they can knock the wind out of you that much i know.

    To say these are generic how many superstars are actually using a " generic powerbomb " right now? The powerbomb is not generic by no means. I remember a time when the powerbomb was used more but never generic or frequent for that matter.

    I would rather see a powerbomb any day knowing the impact and pain it can deliver than most of the moves im seeing now that look so fake.

    I would even go so far to say that more than 50% of the moves the superstars use today are very fake looking and at times clearly no matter how the cameras try to hide it never even come close to looking like they contact or connect with the opponent who is on the receiving end of it.

    Only complaint I have, but he will probably get a secondary finisher as time goes on.

    The Pounce was an epic move, I mean it shouted pure dominance. Besides, it's better then a spear.

    Yea,the Pounce was a KILLER....It stil disappoints me to this day that it has been unavailable in WWE games forever...As far as an inverted Neckbreaker...There is no such thing other than a Cutter...Inverted Neckbreaker IS a cutter....lol; In a way I see what you mean I've thought the Big Ending was somewhat awkward or different looking and not exactly what you'd expect from a big power guy...but it's not the worst...If I was to change I'd give him the Mark Of Perfection...Back Suplex Sideslam...Though not sure He's got the height for it...



    The higher I go, the crookeder it becomes.

    What if Langston has been bought in to boost Ryback further? They need to get Ryback away from Punk and the WWE title. So once Dolph cashes in and gets the WHC, Ryback will end up feuding with him. Langston will get destroyed during the feud. Adding to Ryback's unstoppable run status. Then he'll take out Dolph and get his first title.

    Because I really can't see any good reason for bringing up Langston. He's unimpressive, unoriginal, clunky and unable to cut a promo. He even makes Ryback look charismatic.
