One more and I'm gonna stop , but what about Ron Garvin and the Garvin Stomp . I could swear I thought I seen somebody use that recently though , but I can't remember who it was or if I'm just losing my mind .

Good thread DMC !

Glacier used the oriental spike as a finisher. He may still do so. I still need to get those tapes of Turnbuckle.

Again, I don't know if the Garvin Stomp qualifies as a "forgotten" move, since it was mentioned in a thread about a month ago. It apparently was hideous enough to imprint on people's minds for awhile. But thank you Pheadfred.

What was Putski's Polish Hammer? I'm drawing a blank.

That's called the Doomesday Device, and I know I saw that on WWF TV sometime in the past month. I think it was the Tag Team Fatal Four Way.

Brian Adams used the heart punch in WCW for a little bit. The Polish Hammer is pretty much just a standing double Axe Handle (Atleast that's what it looked like to me when Ivan and his kid used it in the WWF.)

Didn't Balls Mahoney shoot a fireball at Joel Gertner at an ECW PPV? That's what set the Dudleys on a rampage I believe.

No one seems to use the ancient Oriental trick of salt to the eyes anymore, if Ka En Tai were truely EVIL they would break it out.

D'Lo and Chaz did a variation of the Power & Glory finisher, with Chaz doing a superplex and D'Lo hitting a Frogsplash. That finisher only looks good if they time it real close (I.e., the splash guy comes off the ropes when the superplex is still being executed, not afterward).

K-Kwik and Road Dogg did a variation of the Hart Attack, with K-Kwik hitting a Harlem Sidekick instead of a clothline off the ropes.

what did the hart attack look like? i can't remember it.

was it bret holding the guy and anvil hitting a legdrop off the turnbuckle?


I've got to tell you, I totally cracked up at the thought of Anvil doing a legdrop off the turnbuckle.

I Don't think I've seen anyone mention the Sleeper. The last time I remember it finishing a match was Piper vs. Hollywood Hogan at Halloween Havoc.

Also, how about:

The Big Splash (usually from Superheavyweights)
Indian Death Lock (not seen since Paul Jones?)
Plain Bulldog (not using ropes or turnbuckles)
Flying Forearm (or for Terry Taylor, the Five Arm)
the Hot Shot (using during matches, not as a finisher)
Jumping Piledriver/Cradle (german) Piledriver

This is how I remember most Ole and Arn matches going (against jobbers that is):

1. Both work on the arm of the opponent, using the "patented" bodyslam with the guy's arm tucked behind his back.

2. Ole would tag Arn, and then grab the guy's bad arm and stretch it out. Arn would come off the top rope with a knee to the arm.

3. Arn or Ole (whoever was legal) would then put the guy in an armbar and then they would submit.

Right on about George the Animal Steele's painful looking finisher. But I always thought it was called a flying hammerlock, not chickenwing.

Thank you odessasteps...now that you mention the Anderson's finisher it is all coming back to me.

By the way, the plain bulldog is basically what Trish's Stratusfaction is, although she occasionally adds the ropes to it for effect.

re: evil Oriental holds learned only in the Far East

Let's set the wayback machine for 1987 --

In the buildup for Dusty-Luger at Starrcade (where Dusty vowed to retire if he lost), Dusty unveiled his new finisher: the Weaver Lock, a deadly version of the sleeper that he learned from Johnny Weaver.

This was a hold so dangerous that Johnny Weaver had never taught it to anyone! In fact, Weaver had never used it himself! In fact, he never let it out of the house and kept it in his basement chained to the radiator! (OK, that last part I made up.) But Dusty was so insane with hatred for Luger and the Horsemen, he convinced Weaver to teach it to him.

Here's the crazy part: in the weeks building to the match, Dusty would use the hold on TV jobbers, they'd go to sleep and Dusty would refuse to wake them up. (to show he was a badass and was willing to KILL) So Johnny Weaver would have to come out of the crowd and wake the jobber up, 'cause only Weaver knew the secrets of the dangerous Weaver Lock!

And the secret, of course, was the usual slap to the back of the guy's neck. Because the Weaver Lock was the same stupid sleeper hold that Dusty always used.

Life was so much simpler then!

I saw someone mention the Steiner Screwdriver. I saw it a few times, then it was GONE. I don't know what could have happened. I thought it was the nastiest move I've ever see an American wrestler do (Ganso Bomb still has the honor of beint the nastiest PERIOD). A suplex into a sit-out piledriver. I still get chills just thinking about the injuries that one could cause if it went wrong! Anyone know if it was banned or if guys just decided not to use it for whatever reason?

Let's face it -- would you trust Big Poppa Pump to do that move on you? I mean, if people don't trust the Tombstone anymore, how about something like the SSD or Steve Williams' Dangerous Backdrop Driver?

A move that appeared to be "on the shelf" for the longest time was the Blockbuster Suplex (that fall away toss over your head thing that Bradshaw does). When the aforementioned Scott Steiner accidently punctured Sid Vicious' lung doing the move, it disappeared for a good long while.

And for dangerous moves, how about the piledriver from the second or top rope? Calling Akira Hokuto.

Doc picks the guy up to do a regular backdrop and drops the guy RIGHT ON HIS HEAD!

I would argue that the famous match with Kenta Kobashi from the mid-1990s is the one in which Doc does the world's greatest (and most dangerous) backdrop driver.

The ending made the show for me. And I'm not even a big uber Benoit fan, great finish especially the roll that put Triple H in the middle of the ring. It got applause from everyone at my place watching the show.
