When it comes time for a great match to come to an end, the finishing move comes into play. It can basically happen at any time and it can mean that the match is three seconds or some taps on the ground away from the bell ringing and a winner being announced. While it isn't always a certainty, there are some finishers, predominantly used by top-tier superstars, that make the end of a match purely academic. Once that move comes, it's all over.
When looking squarely at some of these finishers, however, it really makes you wonder how a 15-minute match that showed so much promise can end with such a simple maneuver. Is it really a good finisher? How can so much punishment still have the ability for an opponent to survive, while one debilitating move can do just about anyone in?
