Worst Finishing Moves

Post by BoxingRobes » Sun Mar 11, 2018 12:31 am

Lets start a collective list of current worst finishers in wrestling.

Personally...anything that requires the opponent to do all of the work is immediately placed at the bottom of the pile.

With that said...my nominees.

Jay Lethal - Lethal Injection
Baron Corbin - End of Days

Will gladly enjoy reading this thread.

Man, I absolutely HATED that finisher. It's so freaking lame & made Big Show look like a geek for not winning more matches.

Cesaro's neutralizer. He picks the guy up and...gently lays him down on his knees? Huh?

SANADA's Armpit Fart.

Adam Cole's flying knee/shining thigh to the face would be on the list, but the one he hit on Bononi on this week's TV was to the back of the head and looked a lot better. So, if he changes it up permanently, I might let it slide.

You can end the thread here, really. This move is the pits.

Sanada's submission. Looks the absolute shits as he ends up just covering their eyes so why on earth would it hurt?

IMO, this is a case where the opponent kills the move dead by not taking it correctly. I guess its supposed to be similar to the Styles Clash, but the opponent always curls up in a ball as they are taking it, thus making it look like shit.

This isn't the worst of SANADA's moves. The fucking SANADA KNOT is the dirt worst. Such a contrived trash spot I'd expect in a fucking DINO match before he humps a man's ass or CHIKARA...not in NJPW.

I don't hate the paradise lock, but it only works for technical mastros or goofy comic wrestlers. SANADA is neither.

I don't like EVIL having a STO as a finisher. I always thought it was a weak looking move to have as a finisher.
