A good finisher goes a long way in getting a wrestler over with the fans.
When Jake Roberts debuted in WWE, he was an evil creepy dude who draped snakes over his opponents and made one of them (George Welles) foam at the mouth at WrestleMania 2. He also had the DDT as a finishing move.
Not only was it a dangerous looking move that was brand new to the fans he was performing in front of, but he found ways to hit it out of thin air. Similarly, his protege Diamond Dallas Page owes a lot of his success to the Diamond Cutter finishing move, which also had the "out of nowhere" aspect to it.
With that in mind, let's take a look at some of the best finishers in pro wrestling today. Keep in mind that I don't get to watch as much international and independent wrestling as I used to, so I know I missed some cool stuff.
