Slaughter used the fireball on Hogan, actually. Hogan was bandaged up from it for a couple weeks (even though the WWF had one of their first cards in Japan in ages right after 'Mainia, and Hogan was fine over there).

edit: oops. somebody already corrected this up there. sorry.

And you are correct. The fireball wasn't shown on PPV. The fireball attack was in the back hallway when Hogan was returning to his locker room.

The Heart Punch has to be a finisher I haven't seen used by a superstar in quite a while(Emory Hale in the dying days of WCW doesn't count). The only guy I saw (on tape) use that move was Ox Baker and that was a long time ago. Did anyone else use that finisher?

Flair probably also had submission wins with the figure four in the WCW in the months-years before their collapse, although I can point out any specific matches.

Good call on the double slingshot suplex. Wasn't that the Anderson's finisher or am I wrong? What *was* their finisher anyway? Didnt they just drop down on people's knees and then Ole would twist the knee around until the person submitted? Talk about guys who knew how to pick a part and work on it.

How about the shoulder breaker? Didn't someone use this in the WCW a while ago? (Scott Norton?)

I miss the flying chicken-wing which George "The Animal" Steele used as a finisher. As he usually bounced his opponent's arm off of an unprotected turnbuckle before applying his finisher, it always looked to be a truly painful manuver. The closest anyone's come to that (that I recall) was the Red Rooster's chicken-wing - though Taylor would only hoist his opponent up on his back.

I believe it was Mankind and/or Paul Bearer who used a fireball on UT, which led to him getting revenge by burning Paul, which eventually led to Paul Bearer bringing in Kane.

The most recent person I can remember using the heart punch as a finisher was Crush, right before he joined the Nation of Domination.

As for the Hart Attack, the Anvil would lift the opponent by his legs and prop him up, and the Hitman would bounce off the ropes and give the opponent a clothesline.

I believe that was Stan "The Man" Stasiaek's finisher (sorry on the spelling of Stan's last name there). Also, in the early 90's there was a wrestler in the WWF that looked like Super Mario named Big Bully Busik that used the Heart Punch, I believe (he also used some stump puller move too where he would wrench the guy's legs up over his head from behing or something- it was lame).

The Hart Attack was Anvil holding the opponent in a bear hug while Bret came off the ropes with a clothesline. Cooler looking than it sounds.

Scott Norton used the "Roadblock Shoulderbreaker"...he'd walk with tthe guy on his shoulder before hitting the move- Papa Shango used it as a finish also

The Brainbusters used a stuffed piledriver. Arn and Ole usually cheated to win, or Arn would hit a spine buster.

The Hart Attack: Anvil put the opponent in a bearhug, Bret kicked them in the face. I think.

More double team fun:
the Vegomatic (Midnight Express, Blackman and Snow)
the Double Goozle (Midnight Express)
Total Elimination (the Eliminators, Saturn and Malenko)
the Tower (Quebecers, Edge and Christian)
backbreaker/reverse DDT combo (Edge and Christian)
the Rocket Launcher (Midnights?)
the chokeslam/backdrop combo (Fuchi and Tsuruta)


I miss the spinning toe hold...

If I recall correctly, in ECW, the Blue Meanie and Nova used an inverted Hart Attack under the name "Blue Light Special".

Sorry I can't do better than that, it's a tough move to describe.

As for Ole and Arn's finisher, wasn't it a double brainbuster suplex?

I've been waiting a long time for someone to bring back the Dragon Sleeper, unfortuately, it was the Undertaker. Not a bad idea UT, but ya really need to work on your execution of the move.

Undertaker burning Bearer was great because it actually turned Paul into a normal person. Previously he was some kind of ghoul with a pale white face and jet black hair, but he gets burned, and viola! He's a normal looking guy with normal skin and brown hair. But the best part was that Paul believed that he was now hideously ugle because of the Undertaker's fireball attack (and THAT was why he brought Kane in).

I remember the Andersons using the brainbuster, but for some reason I have another one of those whispy and fun mid-80s NWA memories of them winning by submission by twisting their opponents knee until he gave. Actually somewhat like Angle's anklelock except the opponent was on his back, I believe. Can anyone confirm the Andersons used this often enough to call it a finisher?

How far back is recently... cause I'm pretty sure no one's used the Double Arm DDT since Foley retired. Even before he retired it went forgotten for a while in favor of the Mandible Claw.

Now that you mention that , you're right , it was Mankind . I remember seeing that match now because Foley had trouble getting the lighter to strike , I think he mentioned the incident in one of his books .

While we're on Foley , what about the mandiable claw ?!
I liked the story of how it came about . I think Cornette is
the one that actually came up with it .


Damn , now I'm going to have to go back and read both books again .

I thought Ricky Steamboat used the double arm flying chickenwing (good lord what a goofy ass name for a move!) as his finisher during the Steamboat/Flair feud in 1989. I seem to remember Flair submitting to that in the first fall of their Clash of Champions match from that year.

I think they overestimate the influence of these women. When's the last time a guy got over because of his valet? Tori Wilson didn't seem to be any great boost for Tajiri and T&A didn't do anything even with Trish.
