I know this has probably been done before but it is an argument that me and my mates have all the time. What is the best finisher ever in the WWE/WWF? All my mates say the stunner but I am leaning towards the Tombstone.

Despite all that's been said about the performer of the move, I'd say the Pedigree has withstood the test of time in terms of effectiveness. We can hate Trips all we want, but in terms of kayfabe, you know that the guy's not gonna get up after taking one Pedigree.
The Sweet Chin Music is another good example of a fast and effective finisher.
I like the shinning wizard. Great Muta uses it and it just cool. (hurricane uses it now) Dimond Cutter I think is one of the best becuase when he first did the move it came from no where and just knock you out. Don't care for the RKO because it looks like the lazy verison of the Diamond Cutter. The worst the Stink face is all that comes to mind. Here is what I think the funniest is The Garven Stomp use by Ronney Garven.
Great Muta is a wrestling GOD!! praise the Great Muta.
I will go with one not used in years: The Double Arm Flying Chicken Wing that Rick Steamboat used at Clash VI against Ric Flair, forcing Ric Flair to submit in a World Title match on national television in an era where Ric Flair did not submit.

Anyone know the show that Lesnar did the SSP on?

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened. - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
Best: 1) Stone Cold Stunner. Quick and lethal....unless it's the Rock overselling it, as usual. Gotta sell it right. 2) I love the Jackhammer, especially when it's a huge guy taking it. 3) That Brock Lock looks incredibly painful. 4) The Snowplow. A cross between the Jackhammer and a Brain Buster. 5) For some reason, I loved Perry Saturn's Death Valley Driver. Very fluid, unlike that lame-assed FU that Cena does.
Worst: 1) The Worm. Utterly retarded. 2) Booker's Scissors Kick. Yeah, the opponent doesn't look like he's bent over, waiting 2 minutes for him to do it. Same thing goes for the Fame-asser. 3) People's Elbow. 4) Derailer. Looks like it hurt A-Train's knees more than the opponent's back. 5) The FU. Not even the Big Show taking it makes it look impressive.

Its the same song, just with rap over the top. I miss those old themes that didn't have lyrics but still conveyed the wrestlers persona effectively. Ultimate Warrior, Bret Hart, Jake the Snake... classics.
