Leg Drop of Doom is automatic, we shouldn't even have to mention it. Most of my most hated moves have been posted...but here's a few that may ring true.

-Steiner Recliner was kind of lame...never really looked cinched in.

-Ric Steiners top rope bulldog sucked!

-X-factor

-Luger's loaded forearm




Nothing is better than X-pac!

I just thought of another lame-ass finishing move: Meng/Haku's Tongan Death Grip.

Although I was marking out for Meng when he put Lex Luger out with it.

The pedigree can look great or terrible, depending on who is taking it. Angle can make the pedigree look amazingly painful. If people tuck their legs in or try to break the fall with their arms, it doesn't look good.

Same as for the Breakdown: it takes a lot of courage to not try to break the fall with your arms, but if you do, it looks kinda weak.

Actually, the Rock is weird because he can take some moves with a dramatic oversell (stunners, for example), but other things, such as the breakdown and the Crippler Crossface he makes look really poor.

The "Big Splash" has been mentioned but, as much as I'm a closet fan of his, The Ultimate Warrior's version was especially bad simply because his setup move was a frikkin Gorilla Press! The setup move would have been a more believeable finisher than the finisher!

And it's been mentioned that even the "Leg Drop of Doom" can be explained as having knocked the wind out of the opponent, assuming Hogan went for the pin immedeately. He is a big guy dropping all his weight directly on the lungs, after all.

Both are still better than the Worm and The People's Elbow, though.

I actually think the old glory kneedrop and even the big leg of doom are sorta believable..

Kneedrop: You get a big ugly knee against your head, that's gotta hurt.

Legdrop: You get a huge leg across your chest and throat, knocking the wind out of you. Also, Hogan never did a 15 minute setup like Rock/Scotty which can also mean the move prior to the legdrop is the actual damaging move..when you pose for 15 minutes there is no way people are gonna stay down..

Warrior's splash..how could a 'light' guy like that have such an impact with a splash..maybe if it had been from the top rope or so..

Any move that allows your head to hit the mat, or your neck to be snapped in whatever direction are okay with me. Or moves that drive the air out of you in a big big way..

Now Steiner's bulldog, the execution sucked but the move itself could be cool.
If you wanna talk about crappy executed finishers, how about Nash' powerdrop on The Giant? *cringe*

As for climaxes and stuff..punches to the head are pretty anti-climatic. No matter how convincingly done.

The biggest problem with the legdrop was - why just the leg? why not drop all of your weight on the guy?

Does the fact that Test uses JUST a big boot while Hogan needed an additional move mean Test is better than Hogan?

Keep in mind, when Hogan would deliver the big boot he'd..opps, sorry,
When Hogan would deliver the BIG BOOT (tm) it just kinda knocked the guy down. His opponents usually weren't moving all that fast, and Hogan was stationary.
TEST, on the other hand is actually running foreward, and when he pulls that move, I swear it does look like he might have taken someone's head off.

I am always amazed in that when the "crappy finishing move" threads come up that the first words out of someone's mouth aren't "The Garvin Stomp"

Come on people. I can't be that old!

Didn't WCW try to convince us (before there was Tank Abbott) that El Dandy had a feared right hand?
Or Jerry Flynn with his lightning feet which never saved him from jobbing to Goldberg at least 50 times.

Oh my, oh my oh my!
The Garvin Stomp! I was just thinking about Kerry Von Eric's Tornado Punch as a finisher, (A man with that ability, not to mention lineage in the sport uses a punch as a finisher)but the Garvin Stomp is even better. Yes I do remember Hands of Stone Ronnie Garvin doing his gay little stomp

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Hacksaw Jim Duggan's Three Point Stance.
Or how about the most disgusting of finishers, Bastion Booger's butt drop, which Gorilla Monsoon used to refer to "A trip to the Batcave."

Although the most famous Crappy Finisher, for longtime fans has to be te SHockmaster's Trip down the aisle. And yes it was a finisher, because thanks to that move, he was finished!

I can't stand the Big Boot from Test. His pumphandle alsm is better, but guys get kicked all the time, why should that be a finishing move? The People's Elbow is definitely better as a mid-match move, not as a finisher. I also think the chokeslam is a good move, but too many guys use it as their finisher.

Well, I nominate whatever the hell Rikishi is using nowadays, the buttdrop or stinkface. Bring back the Rikishi Driver DAMMIT!

Oh, just remembered a really good(bad) finisher. The Artist's(formerly known as Prince Iuekea-not sure of that spelling) DDT where he jumped from the top turnbuckle and was SUPPOSED to DDT his opponent on the way down. He NEVER EVER hit that move.

i never understood Reno's Roll of the Dice...

if i remember correctly [i've seen it twice in WCW], he grabs the guy from behind, like to do an upside down ddt.

then, he turns 180 degrees and falls...ON HIS BACK...with his foe on top of him...

he did this to a dude through a table...well, actually, RENO went through the table...but it somehow gave a streacher job to the foe....

Test's pumphandle slam is dumb because he doesn't do it all in one motion. It just looks like the Pumphandle is a way to get the guy on his shoulder for the same running powerslam Kane does (I still always think he's maybe going to do the tombstone). Wrath, on the other hand, hit that move all in one motion making it one of the coolest finishers ever.

The chokeslam is totally dependant on who's taking it and who's giving it. Taker and Kane's suck. Show's is the best (especially when he balances them up there forever on his forearm), and actually I think Sid's isn't bad either.

I remember a move done by Ed Leslie (I think in his Barber days but I'm not sure) where he would set up the guy for a pedagree, but instead of driving his head into the mat, he would just jump up in the air and land on his feet, with the guy's head between his legs the whole time. While I'm not sure that this was his finisher, if it was it would take my vote for "crappiset finsiher."

The problem with Test's pumphandle is that it NEVER works. His opponents always fall slide down his back.








Oh and another problem is that Test sucks.
