In no f'n order!



Magnum Tokyo's finishers/ signature moves:

Viagra Driver (Pump handle into Michinoku Driver)

Erect Smash (Cross Arm Rock Bottom)



Milano Collection AT's finishers/ signature moves:

STF (The F is for Fashion) (STF with a full nelson)

AT Lock (Chickenwing Armlock with headscissors)



And my new fave finisher of ALL time. I'm having trouble describing it, and I've seen it done 40 times so far.

JUNYA FUKUMASA - Sagittarius (Victim on their stomach, attacker lined up in a T, they bridge and pull up on the legs and an arm around the neck)

The move looks SO much cooler than I made it sound.

In case you couldn't tell, I'm one of the new marks for Toryumon 2000 Project, aka, T2P. If you haven't seen it yet, drop the 10 or 20 bucks for a tape and you have the EastCoastAvenger GUARAN-Dang-TEE (tm) that it WILL blow your mind.



"All born equal unless you're Canadian
Then halfway through decay like Uranium
You define what's death-defying
Get the most out of life or at the least die trying
Are you Evil Knievel jumping a train?
Or running with scissors like Frasier Crane?
Have really good times doing really bad things
‘Cause the show ain't over ‘til the fat lady sings
Like Elton John with his candle in the wind
It's hard to blow out a flame as big as him
But we've all got to Wang Chung with the Grim Reaper
Whether you're Einstein whether you're Beaker
Death is certain so it's definitely worth flirtin'
Don't expect a bright light no just curtains
Life is like a penis most people don't know it
But most people suck so they usually blow it"

I always liked the inverted piledriver that Owen Hart used to do better than the tombstone.

Though I never would have thought of it before if someone hadn't mentioned it, the Dominator IS a cool move. It's a shame Farrooq doesn't do it much, probably because it is too dangerous.

The Stone Cold Jawbreaker is cool, I suppose, if only for it's ability to be applied quickly and surprisingly.

Diamond Cutter, for the same reasons as the Jawbreaker.

Tajiri's kick to the face.

The superkick.

The Screwdriver.

Yeah, I really miss the Dominator. I don't think it is that dangerous. Let Suicide Multi-colored Hardy take it.

One of the many reasons Tajiri rules is because it is so funny to read recaps of his matches. "Tajiri- KICK IN THE FACE (3:02)"

The last Dominator I remember seeing was on the PPV where Terri brought the APA down to kill the Hardyzzzz. Jeff took one REALLY piss poorly (I thought he was dead and so did everyone else in the room). Haven't seen it used since.

If the Chimera-plex is anywhere as cool looking as it sounds, then it has made my list.

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



The Yang Time is a backflip into a twisting senton.

The Mandible Claw, Properly applied Liontmaer, Sharpshooter, and Regal Stretch rule the submission world.

Dominator, Vertibreaker, Greetings From Asbury Park, Yazuka Kick, Shining Wizard, and Evenflow are your best non submissions.

Flying maneuvers, Yang Time, Seanton Bomb, Shooting Star Press.

I totally dug the flippy-flippy thing to set it up, but the only time I remember him using an inverted pile driver and not a tombstone from that setup was when he broke Steve Austin's neck. Wait, also the time when he worked the broken neck bit on Dan Severen.

and Evenflow are your best non submissions

OK, you've got to explain this one. A DDT, and only the 3rd best (if that) DDT finisher that's been used?

Evenflow:
It just looks badass when properly executed and it makes that awesome THUD or THWACK. It can be done on trash cans, chairs, etc. I'm just a Raven/Jake Roberts mark.

Personally, I always thought that Jake's DDT was one of the best ever. Raven's is alright, but it isn't in Jake's league.

I liked Tank Abbot's finisher, the punch to the jaw followed by just leaving.
Almost as good as that Viking guy's "throw the guy out of the ring for the count-out" finisher.

I liked the Yang Time (the twisting Senton, not the on-ground move).
Screwdriver was fun, but not a good finisher cos Scotty would have killed someone eventually.

One of my personal favorites is the Diamond Cutter, just cos when DDP did it it looked like it would hurt a lot and could come out of nowhere at any point in the match.

I always like a properly done Brainbuster DDT.

I believe the last Dominator on WWF television was when the APA beat Kai en Tai on Jakked or something a long while back. Bradshaw gave TAKA the clothesline followed by Faarooq hitting Funaki with the Dominator on top of TAKA, leading to the Kai en Tai Double Pin®. It could've been some indy jobbers, though, knowing my memory.

I've actually got to say the Jackhammer. Also Chavo's cross finisher which always seemed somewhere between a brainbuster and jackhammer to me.

In terms of pure markout value nothing comes close to Warrior's Gorilla Press for me. I thought that had to be the most devistating thing someone could do in the ring. I mean, you can't drop a guy from any higher than from all the way above your head, can you?

As for DDT's, Arn's comes in #1 for me, although I have to say, a good DDT is more in the sell than the delivery. That goes double for an implant DDT.

Moe, you're quite right....Double A had a great DDT, and really, all DDT's are about the sell. But then again, if someone executes the move crappy, all the selling in the world won't help it.


It may seem sad, but my two mark-out moves when I first started watching wrestling was Jake's DDT (so I'm probably biased) and Arn's ~SPINEBUSTER.

I gotta throw a vote up for the Alabama Slam, because I'm biased, and I think it looks vicious as hell (sometimes...best thing Spike's ever done in my book) and of course, it means Holly's winning. I'm also a big fan of the Vertebreaker and any move that can come out of "nowhere" (Rock Bottom, Stunner, and the Ankle Lock, especially during the phase where Kurt seemed hell-bent to find a new counter into it every match).



And I think you're fat. So how do you like me now?

I must admit, that thing that Lesner does just scares the bejessues out of me. Especially when he does it to a huge ball of fat like Rikishi. Lesner is not human.

Either the superkick ala Shawn Micheals or the Jake Roberts DDT.....neither one of em were the biggest guys, but you knew they had that one move they could pull out of nowhere and drop absolutely anyone at any time......

I think I'm going to have to be contrarian and say Les Thornton's kneedrop. Either that, or a Hashimoto brainbuster.
