The F5. At the moment, it feels like the only maneuver in the company that feels like a finisher. A maneuver so devastating that it doesn't matter if Brock hits it 5 minutes into the match, or 15. The match is over. Just Brock trying to hit the move delivers the same emotional reaction as many performers hitting their best shot 2-3 times. I think the only other maneuver that comes close is the RKO.

F-5 because it's pretty much the only finishing move, besides Roman's Spear and the RKO, that has been protected to the point where you know the match is over once it's hit. Since the Spear and RKO didn't make it on the nom list, I gotta go with the F-5. Not the coolest finisher, but it's definitely the most devastating from a kayfabe perspective.

Not sure just where my vote is going just yet, but it's goddamn impressive for an elbow drop to get such a reaction from the crowd in 2017, and by a relative newcomer no less.

The F5 is a finisher that is a combination of a couple requirements to make a finisher great for me. It looks real, and it can be performed (by Brock) on any opponent.

I can't imagine AJ hitting the Styles Clash or Pete Dunne hitting the Bitter End on The Big Show.

Also; I like finishers that don't have an elaborate setup. While it's believable to see someone escape the F5, it's a move that can be setup and executed in two seconds. In that short amount of time it spells absolute doom for Brock's opponent.

Insane Elbow is so beautifully executed that I have to pick it. One of the best looking new finishers of the year.

This video is a year and a half old.


There is only one move on this list that is so sudden, can be hit at any point in a match, and has finished the victim without fail.

LOL please. Roman Reigns would kick out of like 5 of those. Probably in succession. The F5 has been the only move this past year that has been shown to keep both him, and everyone else, down since Wrestlemania after just one application.

I'm very much with Stormtrooper on this one. The F5 has indeed finished a few people this year, but because of its years of overuse, it just feels like a total anticlimax. When people were taking three of a move and kicking out mere months ago, people suddenly acting like they've been shot in the head after one just looks bizarre. You can't just stuff that genie back in the bottle. Strowman and Joe just looked second tier after Triple H, Cena, Undertaker, Reigns and Goldberg kicked out of what felt like half a dozen each.

The Black Mass has three things I require of a good finisher: 1) a variant with a taunt set-up, 2) a surprise variant, 3) it looks like it would kill a man.

The F5 has ended 4 Televised matches since WrestleMania. Including the sporadic Live Event match, that number jumps all the way up to 12. Don't go saying it's a world beater when it won 4 matches (or 12). Aleister Black has wrestled 94 matches (3/4ths of which were Live Events), and has won 87 of them. Televised matches the number is around 15. ALL of them he's won with the Black Mass.

12 vs. 87. 4 vs. 15. Tell me again how the F5 is deadlier? Sheer quantity, coupled with the complete lack of anyone ever surviving the move, is proof enough that Black Mass >> F5.

And to those voting for the Insane Elbow. I love the move, but it suffers from the same issue as the F5, in that Kairi Sane has won only 8 televised matches with it, and that's the only time she's done it. It hasn't been built up as much as the Black Mass has this year.
