John’s Top 10 Favorite Wrestling Finishers

In order to be top star in wrestling you have to have a great finisher move. In my opinion a good finisher has to be believable as a devastating move or at least  be a move that gets the fans excited to see it. I came up with a list of my top 10 favorite finishers. Some of the finishers that didn’t make my list but want to mention are – The Rock’s “Rock Bottom” & “The People’s Elbow”, Jeff & Matt Hardy’s “Twist of Fate”, Jake “The Snake” Robert’s “DDT” (Roberts is credited for creating the DDT), Hulk Hogan’s “Leg Drop”, Jeff Jarrett’s “The Stroke”, CM Punk’s “GTS”, Team 3D’s “3D”, Bret Hart’s “Sharpshooter”, Sting’s “Scorpion Death Lock”, Ric Flair’s “Figure 4 Leg Lock”, Triple H’s “Pedigree” & John Cena’s “Attitude Adjustment”. The Spear is also a good finisher and has been used by wrestlers such as Goldberg, Edge, Christian & Bobby Lashley.

Also some finishers that didn’t make my list by some of the younger stars of today that I would also like to mention are – Daniel Bryan’s “Yes Lock”, Ryback’s “Shell Shocked”, Bray Wyatt’s “Sister Abigail”, Abyss’ “Black Hole Slam”, Dean Ambrose’s “Dirty Deeds”, Bobby Roode’s ” Roode Bomb”, Dolph Ziggler’s “Zig Zag” and AJ Style’s “Styles Clash”.

I also considered putting on my list Brock Lesnar’s “F5″ but I just don’t like Lesnar.

Here is my Top 10 Favorite Finisher:

1. Steve Austin’s “Stone Cold Stunner”

 

2. DDP’s “Diamond Cutter”

 

3. Sting’s “Scorpion Death Drop”

 

4. Rob Van Dam’s “5 Star Frog Splash”

 

5. The Undertaker’s “Tombstone Piledriver”

 

6. Randy Orton’s “RKO”

 

7. Petey Williams’ “Canadian Destroyer”

 

8. Shawn Michaels’ “Sweet Chin Music”

 

9. “Macho Man” Randy Savage’s “Top Rope Elbow Drop”

 

10. Christian’s “Killswitch”

 

Please feel free to share with me your favorite finishers.

Jeff Jarrett Talked To Jim Ross About Plans For GFW

 

Jeff Jarrett appeared on the Jim Ross Report podcast & talked about his plans for Global Force Wrestling. Jarrett said GFW does not want to rush their product like other companies have done but they’re planning on having their own roster, live events, sponsorships and everything else. Jarrett discussed doing talent exchanges and cross promotions with other wrestling companies across the world because he believes that is what makes the wrestling business healthy. Jarrett said they want to get GFW’s brand out to the fans and create partnerships with companies like New Japan Pro Wrestling and AAA by the time they launch their own TV show.
