Every Superstar in the WWE has a finishing maneuver that usually ends a match.
Though some are dull or plain, I decided to list some of the coolest looking finishers that are just amazing to behold. So enjoy my picks and there may be a part 2 soon.
Note: These are my particular picks and these do not include any TNA stars or alumni as this list is all present stars. Also, Randy Orton was not included for some idiotic reason, but he'll be in a Part 2. These are all current stars so enjoy my picks.
Formally known as the Unprettier, Christian has changed the name of his maneuver to the Killswitch, though it is the same move.
Christian's Killswitch really has no more effect than a DDT when you think of it, but it is performed very well anyways.
Every time we see him turn his opponent around, the crowd grows ecstatic.
The Game's signature move has left it's mark in the WWE even though it is just a drop to the head like a DDT.
Anyways the move is prepared and executed very uniquely and that's what makes this move so unique.
In the end, the Pedigree is really going to go down in WWE history as one of the best finishers ever (whether we like it or not).
Though many here do not like Jeff Hardy, I find the Swanton as one of the most beautifully executed finishers today. Also he can do it off anywhere. Remember the 30 foot jump onto Randy Orton?
The Swanton is a beautifully executed move that is done by Jeff and it takes a very exciting wrestler to do that. (Take that Jeff haters! j/k guys don't lose it on the comment board)
Now this move may not be the most beautiful, but it is very cool in another way. Like very few finishers in the WWE, Paydirt can come really out of nowhere.
The opponent can be just getting up, he could be turning around, he could even be jumping from the top rope. This move is very exciting and it really deserves to be on this list.
This is just like the Paydirt, Carlito and Primo perform the Backstabber. The difference is that this move looks really painful in a way that does not look like a DDT.
This move is really nice to look at when it is executed. It is just so cool as it is unique to behold.
The GTS is one of the most unique moves done in the WWE. It takes an enormous amount of strength and agility. This move is very unique and really a combination between the Attitude Adjustment and the Pedigree.
This is the best move for Punk, besides his old finisher before in WWE that he was not allowed to use because it looked to much like the Pedigree (Thanks Triple H).
Anyway, Punk perfectly executed this move and no matter how plain it may look at times, imagine if you had to do it to the Big Show.
I apologize for the lack of the photo of the move, but I could not find one.
This move is very unique and beautifully executed. It is very fresh as I don't recall any move that looked like it in the past.
In conclusion, there is not much more to say about this amazing move.
The instant classic move executed in the WWE. This has been a classic move that has never gotten old to behold (no poetry intended). It has always been a major part of his career, especially the streak of 17-0 at WrestleMania.
He has ended almost every one of his matches in the WWE with the Tombstone. When has Taker won via rollup? NEVER! (I really don't remember). But anyways, this is one of the most recognizable moves in WWE history.
Though in reality this is a weak move, nobody can deny how different this move is. Everyone knows when the opponent gets caught in the middle of the ropes, a 619 is coming.
Remember, this is based on how cool it is executed in MY opinion, not the effectiveness of the move.
Jimmy Who? Jimmy Wang Yang. Remember him? The most underused talent on Smackdown has one hell of a finisher even though it is a moonsault. His unique standing moonsault is so awesome to witness and it is very unique.
A classic performance of a very well known high risk move that is performed excellently.
As my final finisher, the Shooting Star Press is maybe the most beautifully executed finisher in the WWE.
If you witness this move, then you have just beheld a gift from the heavens, as Bourne pulls off this move better than anyone else ever.
This guy is the next Rey Mysterio and with his agility, I can only see him surpassing everything Mysterio did. But this finisher is just magical.
Here is a list of moves that may also deserve a spot on this list...
Shawn Michaels-Sweet Chin Music (Superkick)
Mr. Kennedy- Mic Check
Jack Swagger- Gutwrench Powerbomb
Randy Orton- RKO
These picks may be included in a possible Part 2 as they are all so amazing. Anyways that is all and until next time...
