As I mentioned in the beginning, this is not a list of the worst wrestling finishers in WWE history. Other writers have covered that topic.
Nor is this a list of horrible finishers. Some of these finishers are entertaining.
These are finishers performed by extremely popular WWE superstars, that, when scrutinized, don't really live up to the hype.
They are glorified basic moves that many other wrestlers have performed, except these superstars in particular incorporated these moves to end their matches.
But credit must be given.
These superstars have managed to take basic moves and make them popular. Some superstars have even put an original twist on these moves, making them their own.
Something should be said for a superstar's ability to take a basic move and make people love it.
And while I think some of these moves are technically unimpressive, they have been elevated to mainstream consciousness through each of these superstars' legacy.
I hate that I love some of these moves. But that's part of the magic.
