<sniff> STOP BAITING ME!

When was the last time Taker even USED the Tombstone as his finisher? It was so effective, sure, that he abandonned it for The Last Ride, and now for a glorified MMA submission hold. Yeah, way to cement that legacy.

And you talk about how easy it was for Bret to counter the drop. Well, take the Tombstone. Kick your legs a few times and flip it around. I've seen it more times than I care to mention.

And don't blame Yokozuna for his versatility. THe Banzai Drop was STILL the most feared finisher ever, and even if he didn't finish EVERYONE off with it, everytime he DID use it, it ended that person's night.

Ive seen..the Undertaker do that to OTHERS a lot. I cant even name any times its been reversed into a tombstone ON Taker, save maybe for Kane, although I dont remember that ever happening either. And abandoned??? hardly. He was about to put Batista away with it just as recently as last survivor series. Does SummerSlam ring a bell??? ask Edge if Taker abandoned the Tombstone pile driver.

How very hypocrtical of you. Right after this, you go on to tell me "well dont blame Yokozuna for being versatile"....so Its ok for the guy who you want to win, but not for mine?? really??? And what does it say about the move you tout, when as you say you cant even remember the last time Taker used it to win, yet the list of individuals beaten, and the amount of accolades gained by the move, is somewere in the neighborhood of 57 times longer than for the Banzai drop. Once again IC, im perfectly capable of debating, you dont need to make my arguments for me (blatant baiting here)

There I fixed it for you. This is what any wrestling fan without an adoration for mass amounts of cellulite would say.

I picked the stunner because of the sheer ferocity of the move. Slamming two people's body weight all onto someone's jaw in seconds was amazing. That move, in a couple of different forms, but the same idea, has won matches for so many people, most recently, Randy Orton. I know that it's closer to the Diamond Cutter, but same idea.

Plus, Stone Cold coming to the ring, delivering 10 stunners, and leaving is one of my favorite WWE memories. How lame would it have been waiting on ten leg drops?

I picked SCM, for the reason I love moves that can come out of nowhere. I mean, when you hear him warming up the band then you know its coming but it is more often or not that he pulls it out of thin air. It does damage and you can tell. It can happen to many people in a row without having to set up again and again, its just bang bang bang etc. Where (like the guy above me said) imagine the leg drop or any move up there minus the stunner, done to say ten people in a row. it wouldnt be beliavable. where as it is somewhat possible to do it with SCM.

Sadly, I only voted for this becouse the RKO, isnt up there. I think the RKO is even with the SCM for the excact same reasons as each other.


Edit: NorCal, the last guy to attempt it was Mr Kennedy in the first blood match? a couple of years back.

Well boys with all your complaining over the definition of what makes a good finishing move, I present my arguments for the DDT.

It doesn't have a weight limit - All you need to do it get enough momentum to slingshot the guy onto his head. This negates the Tombstone's 'has to be able to be lifted argument'

It is damn fast - Rock back and you're done. It lacks the build up of the Banzai and the Tombstone. It's hit with such speed that only really SCM and the stunner can compare.

With that, on to the aforementioned moves...
Stunner - It's not realistically going to hurt the guy on the receiving end, given it's Austin dropping and more likely to injure his ass in the process. SCM and DDT have at least a semblance of being painful.

SCM - Nit-picking I know, but it's been said. Why not roll away for the stomping. Hit from nowhere, it's impressive.

Incredulous as it is to believe that a move done by accident and the result of a slip could be my candidate, but it was a dangerous and high impact move, and even had a Honky Tonk led campaign to have it banned... the move was simple genius

Went with SCM. was tempted to go with the ddt but since Jake, everyone uses it so its lost some of its appeal as a move that truly ends the match. as for the point about "tuning up the band" i've noticed that more recently, when Shawn does this, his first attempt will be dodged, and the out of nowhere a few moves later he hits it. saying that you should notice the stomping is like saying, when edges runs to the corner don't get up. most wrestler have some precursor or another that you would know after facing them once or twice would lead to their finisher.

Also when comparing jake's ddt and SCM, u can say that many people have used a ddt and a superkick, but while some ddts such as the edgecution or the one randy orton does with the ropes can be as powerful as Jake's, no superkick has the effect of HBK performing it, like when Morrision does it, although impressive, its just not the same, doesn't have that snapping sound that you always get when HBK delivers it

The one thing I like about a finishing move is not that it can come out of nowhere but that it can be used on anybody. That's why I am going with the RKO. I love the way Randy Orton sets it up and it can literally come out of nowhere especially when countering his opponent's moves like Chris Benoit at Summerslam '04.

I would have to go with the Banzai Drop second because nobody is going to get up when 600 pounds crashes on your chest. The only thing I have against it is how long the setup takes but when it is effective, it is effective. I remember Yokozuna trying to use it on Stone Cold and he damn near broke the ring.

Honorable Mention goes to the Widow's Peak. It's one of the deadliest looking finishers in the WWE and I haven't seen anybody kick out of it and the fact that Victoria uses makes me like it even more

Out of the ones listed I gotta go with the Stunner even though my personal favorite was the F-5 but its not listed. No move got a pop like the Stunner did, especially during the attitude era. When he would stun somebody and then you would hear the glass shatter and his music hit the place would go apeshit. I also like it because it can be applied to anybody big or small and can happen in a blink of an eye. The downfall to it is alot of people kicked out on it especially The Rock but at that time people always kicked out of other people's finishing moves. I like sweet chin music too but I actually prefer it when he does it out of nowhere instead of "tuning of the band".

The Figure-4 is only as good as the person selling it. Ric Flair as the person applying it always sold it better than the wrestlers he had it applied to.

I'd go for The People's Elbow or The Atomic Leg Drop. Two moves that aren't generally thought of as being great. I've always looked at it as, how would you like a muscular guy to drop/hit an leg/elbow across/into your throat/heart. They both have a set up with build anticipation, or leads to a predictable ending. Depending how you look at it.

I'll go People's Elbow for looking slightly more ridiculous than the Atomic Leg Drop. Stunner for coming out of nowhere & DDT for looking like it could get you done for manslaughter.

The Rock doesnt get much love in these tournaments it seems

So it's okay for a legdrop to be phenominal because Hogan does it but when The Rock (arguably the second greatest of all time) hit's an elbow thats lame?

Well anyway I gotta say that it's between the Legdrop and The People's Elbow, why you ask? Because not even Stone Cold Steve Austin could've got away with poncing around so much before hitting something relatively simple. The Stunners and the SCM's have their place but no finisher's for me has ever matched the awesomeness of those two.

I will choose the People's Elbow because the move has beaten Hogan were as Rock has never been beaten with a Legdrop.
