The Garvin Stomp utilized Garvin's knowledge of pressure points to disable his opponents. That's why he was "Rugged", he must have endured copious sessions of sheer torture on the receiving end of what he called the Garvin Stomp in order to learn its paralyzing secrets. Imagine having to take that move...not unlike taking twelve Tongan Death Grips or Asiatic Spikes to various parts of your body chosen specifically to cause maximum pain and fully incapacitate you.

It always made me laugh.

From a 1998 Usenet thread on the same topic:

* Iraqi Sgt. Slaughter's "Cobra Clutch" (noogie)
* Outback Jack's "Boomerang" (slow clothesline to back of head)
* "The Garvin Stomp" (preceded by "the dreaded Greco-Roman closed fist to the face")
* Bastion Booger's "Trip To The Batcave"
* Dusty Rhodes' "Bionic Elbow"
* The Rock'N'Roll Express Double Drop Kick
* The Rougeau Brothers' "Crotchday Device" (instead of Hawk hitting a clothesline, Raymond would hit the opponent in the face with his crotch)

That last move sounds like something Billy & Chuck may use.

When I was a kid, that "Garvin Stomp" always looked like a painful, believable finisher to me.

Upon further review, you guys are probably right.

The peoples elbow, Hogan legdrop, and worm are stupid moves. Also the Texas Tornado's spinning punch I mean what did Kerry do to deserve that move? The Lew Thesz/Austin dick to face press is disturbing. The cranial claw is even lamer. But the lamest move has to be the heart punch.

KONAN'S TEQUILLA SUNRISE!

Oh yeah, somersault into a clothesline, what a wicked move!


Unless I'm very much mistaken (or they changed names at some point), the Tequila Sunrise was Konnan's half-crab + arm hold submission thing (which was no great shakes, either).

I like the Heart Punch.

The Tazmission was cool.
The Tazzmission sucks. Most WWF guys are so big it just looks like he's giving them a nice cuddly hug. It also doesn't help that Tazz is now so fat his belly actually hinders his bility to cinch the move in.
The point of the move is to apply pressure to the throat, and if you've ever had someone apply it to you correctly it is not much fun. I wish he'd get a chance to apply it to a smaller opponent instead of all the David/Goliath booking he's had.

I'm surprised no one's mentioned The Final Cut, as delivered by the Big Show. Essentially, it was no more than a forearm to the chest. The chokeslam isn't very original, but at least it looks like it hurts.

As a caveat, I know Hurricane Helms uses basically the same move (he does, right?) but at least he delivers it with some kind of gusto.

The fact that Hogan delivered a leg drop after the big boot showed that, no, test was not better than Hogan but rather Hogan had a bigger move set than test.

While I'm at it, whats with Lances Storms Canadian Maple Leaf, is it just that he's to lazy to grab both legs or turn it into an ankelock. Has anybody tapped out to it since he was in WCW.



Why is it that whenever I learn anything new it pushes something old out of my brain? Like the time I took that home winemakers course and forgot how to drive.

You know, I was at an indy show recently where Disco Inferno was, as was Mark Madden [International Wrestling Cartel]... and Mark spent half of Disco's match chanting Garvin Stomp... ... and he got it. It looked better than the legdrop, at least, for crying out loud... and did more damage with more hits...

The cool thing about the Maple Leaf is that it's one of those finishers that has 87 different ways to set it up.

I never understood why Konnan used the stupid submission move when he also had a very cool move - the splash mountain - he would use as a finsher every once in a while back when he still had the Lucha-style gimmick (his US Champ days). It was a Razor's Edge setup into a sitout powerbomb. I think they might have even called it the Tequila Sunrise for a while.

I guess the problem is that it's the kind of move you can only really do to guys smaller than you.

The Bushwhacker battering ram was the lamest move ever. Mainly cos even at Hogan pace you would surely be able to move out of the way of two pensioners walking slowly towards you while one headlocked the other.

I always thought Foley's Mandible Claw was kinda gay. What was to stop them from biting his fucking fingers off? "Oh no, there's two fingers on my toungue! I'm dooooooomed!"
The Garvin Stomp was hellagay, also.
I always laughed my ass off whenever Hogan would miss his legdrop of doom. Not that it happened much, but it was still funny to see old leatherskin rolling around cuz he landed on his hip.

Actually, Konnan's finisher after that, the 187, was even cooler. It was a cradle DDT from a bear hug type of position. It was neat too. The problem with both moves is that he wasn't able to do them to bigger opponents. That's when he started using the non painful looking Tequila Sunrise.

Actually, the Manidible Claw is a legitimately damaging move, when done right. It was invented by the doctor -- someone will surely help me out here with his name -- whom they based the original Fugitive t.v. series on. His career in medicine was wrecked so he turned to pro wrestling.

The fingers are pressing down UNDER the tongue, on a pressure point in the soft pallette. When you apply enough pressure, the person on the receiving end simply passes out.

As far as lame, what about the "new" Rings of Saturn?

Lamest of all, however, was Evil Sgt. Slaughter's "Noogie of Doom."

Legit move or not, I still think it looked stupid. He could have just carried a pacifier around with him and shoved in into their mouths and lullabye them to sleep, also. ;-)
His double arm-hooked DDT looked nasty, tho......

BANG ! BANG!

You wanna talk about nasty? That pile-driver he used to do where he's pick the person up like normal, then grab the back of their tights before they crashed down was EXTRA NASSTEE.

You guys remember what I'm talking about?!

In my opinion Hurricane's version is *worse* than Big's because you *know* Helms can do a better move. Anyone (besides me and the 3 other guys who watched WCW at the end) remember the Vertebreaker? That move just looked nasty. That's why I hate the Eye of the Hurricane. Same goes for Kidman's new finisher. Anything is going to look anti-climactic when you're expecting the Shooting Star press.

I agree, and also add in "any finisher by Booker T that's not the Harlem Hangover."
