It took 15 years. In my last semester of school ever. But I finally did it. The kid who was supposed to barely finish high school has received an A minus average. This makes me want to go back home.....see all those teachers in high school, my former class mates. And eventually (if I ever see him again), my father. All those people who said I wouldn't cut it, that I'd be nothing. And that I probably wouldn't make it past high school. I want to see them all. And I will enjoy shoving all those comments down their respective throats with a hot branding iron.

Arn Anderson Spinebuster - the first move I can remember marking out for. It's all in the delivery - CatchSnapSLAM!

Psycho Driver - this looks like it would hurt 98% of the wrestlers out there - and kill the remaining 2%.

Dudley Death Drop - a real-looking finisher that received *incredible* crowd reaction. How many times did you see a ECW/WWF crowd yell "3D!!!" when the Dudleys set this move up?

Crippler Crossface - obligatory submission move from those offered. I still think George "The Animal" Steele's flying hammerlock looked much more painful.

Top Rope Brainbuster - I've never seen this, but it sounds incredibly painful to me.

Total Elimination - For the ECW deprived this was the first ECW thing I ever saw when the Elims appeared on the infamous ECW Raw. The biggest markout moment of my life.

450 Splash - The first time I saw this busted out was 2 Cold Scorpio, and it blew my mind. I never looked at small wrestlers as less enjoyable than big guys ever again after that one.

Garvin Stomp - The most utilitarian finisher ever. He just jumps repeatedly on a guy, mashing everything on him to pulp. Sure it looked goofy, but THINK about it and the brilliance is apparent!
Crippler Crossface - THE markout move for me. I love Benoit, so when this gets locked on, it's the only time I yell at the tv anything other than "oh crap it's Undertaker on my tv again." Here I end up yelling "Tap out you bitch! Tap to Benoit!!!"

Tajiri's Kick of Doom - Again, a purely elemental move. Kick guy in face as hard as you can, pin guy, win match. I like that in a move. And no other move SOUNDS as good as that one.

"You used it to shove your miserable daughter down our throats week in and week out...not anymore!" - Ric Flair gives me hope, Raw 3/18/02

"I thought it was cool how HHH just tossed Jericho out of the ring and made him vanish, possibly into another dimension, at the end of the match." - Dr. Unlikely says the funniest thing I've ever read on Wienerville

*not in alphabetical order

Vertebreaker - PLEASE...for the love of God, please give me this at SmackDown is Calgary on Tuesday night!! I'd leave the Saddledome if I get it (even if it's in a Velocity match) and head straight to the bar to toast it. Helms, if you're reading, there's free beer all night for ya...on me.

Bridging Dragon Suplex - As I said, ANY bridging suplex for a pin wins in my book.

Crippler Crossface - 'Cause I love Benoit...

Regal's Disgustingly Sick Half-Nelson Suplex - I'm not sure if this is a finisher (at least I haven't seen it as one) but...DAMN...I love this move.

Death Valley Driver - Because unprotected neck moves are cool.

- Surprised you didn't know that...

Death Valley Drvier- i like the name! and i have to agree with Bullitt... this just looks good.

Sharpshooter/scorpion death lock- comeon... one of the most widely known finishers in wrestling.

DDT- Hey i was a Jake Roberts mark.... and i love Raven's too.

Big Shows Choke Slam- 'nuff said.

Jacknife Powerbomb- just something about how awesome that looks.

Schoolboy, Small Package, Crucifix Pin (not powerbomb), Thumb to the eye/rollup, and the poke to the chest/fall down and get pinned.

In all reality, don't we all have a bit more to talk about when one of these 5 events happen? Some of the most fantastic matches I've ever seen didn't end with a signature move being hit.

1. Big Show's Chokeslam - When I first saw him do it back in '95, I was like "DAMN!". The effect has sorta worn off since Undertaker, Kane, Scott Hall, and a slew of other people from Japan have done it, but it's still nice to see the guy who first used it as a finisher do it. Not only that, but I wanted to be with everybody else and ROCK THE VOTE!

2. Reverse DDT - Scorpion death drop? SLOP DROP BITCH! It just sorta looks like you fall and die when it happens to you.

3. Tazzmission - Yeah, it has another Japanese name, but I'm putting something I can spell. My take on the "token submission hold", only because if done properly, it can do the most damage, that being death.

4. The Jackhammer - Do you think Goldberg would have ever had a career if he weren't doing this and the spear? Say he did a drop toe hold in place of the spear and a normal old Powerslam. The mythos of Goldberg flies out the window without the Jackhammer.

5. Fat Guy going off the top rope - FLY FATASS FLY!

While working security at a local indy show, I saw Ricky Morton's bare ass, and the next time I hear anybody out there say "playing Ricky Morton", the person they mention had best have a really nice ass.

Hey, where are all those old cool-ass Midnight Express moves? The Alabama Jam, Divorce Court, FlapJack, etc.

Anyway, going on the premise that a finisher should (look like it would knock you cold for three seconds) and not almost kill your opponent as you deliver it:

1. Arn Anderson's Spinebuster. I remain a mark for Arn and lost it at Mania when he popped this on UT.

2. Triple H's Pedigree. I absolutely love this move.

3. UnderTaker's Tombstone. Simple yet effective. ( I also liked the Rikishi Driver)

4. Big Show's chokeslam. As cfgb said, you gotta have this on the list.

5. TIE: Reno's Roll the Dice (recently debuted by Test) and the Death Valley Driver

There are other moves I like (shooting star press, crossface, sharpshooter, ***** frog splash), but I think these really make me think someone may not get up. Submission moves are cool, but since Main Eventers never submit, they lose their effectiveness in high profile matches. So I didn't pick any.

You say: Tazzmission - Yeah, it has another Japanese name, but I'm putting something I can spell. My take on the "token submission hold", only because if done properly, it can do the most damage, that being death.

I say: Work. It's no more "damaging" than a front chancery. It's a simple judo choke, and Tazzzzzz doesn't even apply it with any level of credibility. You want legit damaging - how about a cross armbreaker?

By the way, I am saddened and sickened that my entry in the original thread, "Les Thornton's kneedrop," was not included on this list. It is, after all, the best finisher ever.

5). Muscle Buster - Keep in mind I've only seen the video game version of this move, but if someone (I'm looking at you Chavo) were to bust it, I'd probably start dancing.

4). Vertebreaker - When Helms does this move, I get terrified. Seeing the victim get up and walk away makes me sigh with relief.

3). Sean-ton Bomb - Sick enough when Jeff does it, but add about a hundred pounds...

2). The "Real" Lion Tamer - You know, the one that ALL the other main eventers refuse to be put into? (except Benoit) The only episode of TE2 I went out my way to watch is the one where he explains to the kids why he doesn't do it that way any more.

1). Chimera-Plex - I said in the other thread this was my new favorite move. I wasn't lying.

Matt is the Hardy that should be going places. He seems dedicated, seems to try hard, is built and doesn't just rely on moves that get a pop but shorten your life.
