WWE's Countdown YouTube series recently counted down the top 10 top rope finishers. Given the spectacle of a grown man launching himself into the air before crashing down on his opponent, these moves rarely come without some aspect of entertainment.
But the ones that do severely fail to impress. They also underwhelm in terms of convincing fans that what they just saw was a painful maneuver capable of finishing off an opponent.
Some aerial moves are even doomed from the start as tributes to a superstar who could do it like no other. Accordingly, nobody else should have followed suit.
