Thought we had this one. But I would have to say a move like the sharpshooter/Scorpion Death Lock or Boston Crab/Walls of Jericho, since it is physically painful (or would be if the pressure was really put on). I noticed on Smackdown that Kurt had Edge in a amature headlock with a leg scissors on his hip, stretching him. That's also quite painful if applied with pressure. But I guess it's a touch boring for pro Wrestling.

Hon. Mention; The Touch of Class (Regal's neat neckbreaker), and the good ol' STF.

5) Tiger Suplex '85
4) Saemon Neckbreaker (as seen on the Smackdown! series for the PS/PS2).
3) ~EXPLODA '98
2) The Katehajame (Tazzmission). Excuse my spelling.

And finally, it's a move rarly seen. It's painful no matter which way you cut it, and when it's hit it's ALL OVER.



1) The Tiger Driver '91. ~MISAWA.

Ever think that with a little panache any move can be a finisher? Look at Hogan and the Rock. A leg and an Elbow. Hell, who would have ever considered the Stunner special, and the only reason people respect the Pedigree is because HHH's character does such a good job of it. In fact, I happen to think the Dominator is a fabulous move, potentially nastier then the Pedigree. Why is it nobody really pays any mind to it...

CAUSE YOU'RE ALL HHH MARKS.

However, there are some alltime cool moves.

1. When a fat guy does a moonsault.
2. The Jacknife Powerbomb (I used to give the Jacknife to papers as I was delivering them when I had a paper route)
3. Guillotine Leg Drop
4. Okay, most anything from the top rope that looks pretty.
5. The Gravity Bomb (my own move, have figured out the skematics, will use it in the indies when I finish training, and the way it goes, Take a little Scott Hall, a little Faarooq, a dash of Vader, and PRESTO! Yes, I plan on having a power based style.)
6. The Rock Bottom. The Tazzmission is judo. So is the Rock Bottom.
7. Undertaker's Tombstone. Mongo McMicheals didn't make it look cool, and Fit Finlay, well, god love him, but the Undertaker has always done the best one.



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.

1). Muscle Buster
2). Screwdriver
3). 450 Splash or Shooting Star Press
4). Tiger Driver
5). Hangman's DDT
6). Vertebreaker
7). Swan-ton or Sean-ton Bomb
8). That brutal 1/2 Nelson Suplex Regal Busts out
9). Crippler Crossface
10). The "Real" Lion Tamer (The one Jericho showed those punk TE2 kids, not the pansy elevated crab that he uses on almost everyone now)

The grandaddy of all wrestling polls!
Anyways...some of my fav moves, in no particular order.

-Dominator: Yes Lexus, there is another Dominator fan!
-Dick Togo's Senton Bomb (Only saw it on RAW a few times, could have been the camera angle...but it totally rocked!)
-Frog Splash
-Stardust Press (I think this is the name, the backflip into a 450 Blitzkrieg and Hayabusa did it.)
-Death Valley Driver
-Michi Driver
-Vertebreaker
-Lion Tamer

And a move Yan used to do in WCW, don't know the name. He's have them on his back like he was about to do Holly's Alabama Slam, but instead he's drop to his kness and drive the guys head into the mat. Looked really cool.

The Kawada crab Regal used to put Spike out of our collective misery was really great.
I'm a huge Roaring Elbow mark.
And of course the one move that no WWEEEEE wrestler is smart enough to steal: the Stretch Plum.

It's easy to do, it can be done on anyone from a monster to a valet, it looks nasty when done right, it puts the receiver in minimal danger, and it can be done quickly without a lot of setup. I'll take TOTAL ELIMINATION.

Just spotted this.
Jimmy Yang calls it the (get ready) YANG Time. And he's wrestling in All Japan as Kaz Hayashi's tag partner, FYI.

"7. Undertaker's Tombstone. Mongo McMicheals didn't make it look cool, and Fit Finlay, well, god love him, but the Undertaker has always done the best one."

You forget Don Muraco's "tombstone", simply called the front-face piledriver back then I believe (or the reverse piledriver). I've always thought he did a much better job of selling it than Undertaker does, at least in his post-zombie days.

ANY bridged suplex that gets a pin rules in my book.



Q: If you could have interviewed Marvin Gaye, where would you have proposed to meet and what would you have asked him?

A: I would have met anywhere as long as it was before his father shot him. I would have asked him, "Hey, don't you think there's some chance that your father might shoot you? To death, I mean?"

Much thanks to Moe and Travis! I like to get my move names straight.

Of course not that I know Yang's move is called "Yang Time"...maybe ignorance is bliss.

Unless he's changed it up, Yang Time was his move from the top turnbuckle.

Funny, my first reaction was "heh, they probably just needed a reason to get rid of his sorry ass." I actually feel that AW's "managerial talent" holds back the characters that Titus & Darren were starting to develop.
