A few days ago I asked you (the reader) to vote on your top three favorite finishing moves of all time.
There are thousands of different finishing moves, many of which are similar but modified slightly to suit that wrestler.
Over the years some wrestlers have traded one move for another or added a new finishing move to his or her repertoire.
This move can come out of anywhere, at anytime and at any location.
Randy Orton has perfected the cutter over the last few years.
Diamond Dallas Page first made the move look cool, but Randy Orton made it huge.
About the RKO:
"The RKO can strike anywhere, anytime and end a match, no matter the momentum." - Austin Robins
"Who doesn't love this move really?" - Adrian King
"He can pull it off at anytime on anyone from anywhere. You don't find guys who have those type of finishers anymore." - Mister Awesome
A simple facelock jawbreaker defined an era. Some of the best wrestlers and personalities have become a victim of Stone Cold Steve Austin's finishing move.
What makes the move even more entertaining is when you have someone who can sell the move properly.
About the Stone Cold Stunner:
"The Rock, he always had the best reaction to it." - Justin Schimmel
"It isn't that great of a finisher but Austin just made it work, the way he did it, the pop it got.. awesome!" - Peter van Veen
Who would have ever thought a simple kick to the face would become one of the most iconic moves in wrestling history.
Just like an RKO, this move can also come out of nowhere and can be used anywhere.
About Sweet Chin Music:
"Unpredictable and looks awesome always." - Dillon Borchard
"There's not been one single Shawn Michaels superkick I haven't marked out at. It's electric." - Joe Burwell
Originally known as a "Kneeling Reverse Piledriver" and performed by Andre The Giant, the name was changed to the "Tombstone Piledriver" when The Undertaker began to use it when he debuted for the WWF 21 years ago.
This such an amazing move to watch, it's not like the RKO or Sweet Chin Music where it can come out of anyways, it's just such a painful looking maneuver that you can't help but love it.
About the Tombstone Piledriver:
"One of the most iconic finishers in history, fitting for one of the most iconic figures in history" - Sean McDermott
I remember when I used to watch TNA back in 2006-07, there was one move in particular that always made my jaw drop and it's the Canadian Destroyer.
How people survive this is beyond me.
This is one of those moves that you can't believe is actually performed on a regular basis.
About the Canadian Destroyer:
"It literally got me to watch TNA alone." - Wayne Ross
