If we're talking believability, [it has to be JBL's Clothesline From Hell](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDdhjhR-m88&list=PLqIVmFaHA8BosP1hYNKUy7QDo68mhMisH&index=206). If we're talking believability AND how beautiful it looks, [it has to be RVD's Five-Star Frog Splash](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eK36sJm8qkg&list=PLqIVmFaHA8BosP1hYNKUy7QDo68mhMisH&index=198). RVD not only makes it look good but he sells after the impact, which makes me believe he got hut as well, which makes it look that much more impactful.


Me_In_Progress

I see a lot of wrestlers do versions of it now, but the first time I saw Petey Williams do the Canadian Destroyer, I was floored.


RAA94

Ember Moon’s Eclipse. Pops me every time.


BuyAnothaOne

>Pops me every time. Pops her vertebrae too


jqncg

Mayu Iwatani's [Dragon Suplex Hold](https://gfycat.com/femininewelltodobluebird) because of that beautiful bridge.


Wreddit_Regal

[Masato Yoshino's "Lightning Spiral"](http://www.smarkhenry.com/2020/03/finisherfriday-030620-lightning-spiral.html)


miklat106

I love that move too but my issue with it is that if it's not sold correctly then it doesn't look very impactful.


CancelTheHam

I’m partial to a good Olympic/Angle Slam, especially as it was an easy enough move to break out in the schoolyard


amorningofsleep

Awful Waffle and the Moonsault and Battery.


Dangerous-Pianist563

The awful waffle is such a great move 🖤


TheEdFather

Hurrah! Another Year, Surely This One Will Be Better Than the Last; The Inexorable March of Progress Will Lead Us All to Happiness 


heelturnsheadlocks

This.


Theolodious

What an insane fucking name for a move. I had to google it because I thought you were on the wrong thread lol


TheEdFather

ZSJ also has "Barry From Eastenders", "Yes! I Am A Long Way From Home", "How About These Legs?" And "Orienteering with Napalm Death" to name just a few more of his submission finishers


AmericanRudeboy

Stone Cold Stunner.


VodkaOclock

Victoria’s “Widows Peak” hands down.


freshlysqueezed0C

Best looking finisher ever. Im surprised so few people have tried to copy it.


dasfuzzy

Black Mass. Simple, smoothly executed, and absolutely devastating.


Fearless-Structure88

Hidden Blade


heelturnsheadlocks

1. To address your comment: Codebreaker was innovated by Naomichi Marufuji, like many other beloved moves (Curb Stomp, Shiranui, V-Trigger, etc…) 2. My favorite finisher changes daily, but Christopher Daniels’ Angel’s Wings holds a special place in my heart.


DiazFlak

STORMBREAKER!!!!


BigDanRTW

I'll give a shout out to Baron Corbin's "End of Days". It's a pretty sick finisher and I think the one he hit on Chad Gable is one of the coolest looking spots ever.


HammletHST

while I do have a soft spot for the Codebeaker (as well as any and all variations of it or inverted Lungblowers like FTR's Big Rig or Taiji Ishimori's Bloody Cross), my absolute favorite is the Shining Wizard. But only with a proper step-up from the opponents knee, [just like Mutoh used to hit them.](https://youtu.be/5nvLYXL9f2I?t=16) Absolutely brutal


ElStegasaurus

Sharpshooter and Macho Man’s elbow


DeathBySuplex

It was freakin' dangerous as hell, but Kidman's Shooting Star Press was so pretty looking


ZacharyHoovery1

Sitout full Nelson facebuster or variations of a sitout facebuster like the Glam Slam


wigglin_harry

DESTINOOOOOOOOOOOOO


Basedgoku69

stormbreaker


TheLadida

the Bomaye (aka the Kinshasa, "Bomaye" propably isn't PG enough) - simple yet viscous


GlomusThumb

Buff sucks, but the Blockbuster is one of the coolest moves in wrestling.


miikro

Tyson Kidd's springboard blockbuster was top notch. Mansoor's slingshot version is cool too.


Specific-Button-8399

The Deadeye is fucking awesome.


SquirtleBob164

RKO. It can be performed on anyone, has an awesome pre-finisher taunt, can be creative, and hits best outta nowhere! Also the Cross Armbreaker/Armbar looks awesome, especially the roll it does before landing on the mat.


KingKongCoronado

Cross Face Chicken Wing


jayzone11

RKO and F5


XNightcrawlerBAMF

Spirit Bomb House Call (Swerve’s kick to the back of the head.) Coquina Clutch Spin Doctor Murphy’s Law Shatter Machine/Big Rig Discus Lariat And a nice Elbow Drop

Spear but how Goldberg does it.


bc041203

RVD five star frog splash and Omega One Winged Angel


Snooganz82

Old school submission moves stuff like figure 4, camel clutch, crossface chicken wing, Cobra clutch, sharpshooter/scorpion deathlock, Boston crab, Texas cloverleaf, etc


HappyMike91

Orienteering with Napalm Death


JNight01

After all these years, I still love the shooting star press... as long as Kidman is not the one doing it. Also, the Diamond Cutter was really cool. Kanyon giving random Diamond Cutters was pretty funny, too. Now, Randy Orton does one every three seconds, so it's not as exciting, but still a good move.


jelaminah

Bank Statement, Trouble in Paradise and The Insane Elbow.


alphonsochicken

Diamond Cutter, Tombstone Piledriver


hullkogan

Nut stomp.


Dangerous-Pianist563

The Ghostbuster -Koko Ware


Chi-zuru

Top rope double stomp by Sonjay Dutt. Black Hole Slam by Abyss. Hook & Ladder by Jon Moxley. Sharpshooter, especially by Bret or The Rock. Awful Waffle by Dustin. Final Cut by... another Dustin. Favorite all time is probably the Stone Cold Stunner for the sheer bedlam and chaos it created and represented.


Snapplestache

My favorite finisher can change at any moment but I will say that a good implant DDT is something special - particularly when there manages to be some good sustained hangtime on the lift.


TheFergPunk

I'm a fan of the following: Black Fire Driver - Rey Fenix Zack Driver - Zack Sabre Jnr GTR - Hirooki Goto


MutatedSpleen

Always been a huge fan of the shiranui.


BuyAnothaOne

The overdrive


JonasAlbert84

Piledriver


Jupiter_Crush

Package piledriver. It just looks so convincingly brutal no matter who's using it, and one of my favorite wrestlers (Penta) puts some \*stank\* on it.


qb1120

Perfect Plex. As a kid, I always thought it was cool that the finishing move was also a pin


Probablynotstalin

The sharpshooter


staniel_mortgage

Burning Hammer looks like it could kill (may actually??) Sammy's GTH is cool right now.


zardfizzlebeef

GTH and the Stunner.


guiltycitizen

Burning hammer! But not like these two [jabronis](https://youtu.be/kB0pLdFE310)


DevittsDemon

Solo: End of Days and Eclipse, Tag: Shatter Machine (Love ya Brodie, but it's always going to be the Shatter Machine to me. I scream it every time)


Hadouken117

A lot of my favorites have already been mentioned, but one that I think doesn’t get enough credit is Cedric Alexander’s Lumbar Check.


ScrubNerd

Easy! Steiner Screwdriver Devastating move!


kevoisvevo

Tombstone piledriver.


DerRoger

single: Running Ligerbomb tag team: Power & Glory's superplex-supersplash combo


StorybookVillain

Jake Roberts' version of the DDT. It looked like death when I was a kid and I am still upset that its become such a transition move. I'm old, let me yell at my clouds.


BloodTypeBourbonRye

Singles - Razor's Edge/Crucifix powerbomb. Tag finisher will always be the Doomsday Device, though.


jimcab12

The one nobody can possibly do safely. The TKO from No Mercy n64.
