    Default Benson's next project. PW's Top 50 WWE Finishers of all time.

    One year ago....


    YOU....



    the fine men and women of PW.....




    voted on the comprehensive list.....




    of the 100 greatest WWE wrestlers in history, according to you, the members of PW. And the Phenom reigned supreme.



    This year....



    we vote on the move that defines them.



    So we're going to vote on the top 50 finishing WWE moves of all time. So here's what I'd like you to do, just like last year, PM me a list of your top 20 favorite WWE superstar finishers ever. The criteria is 100% up to you. It could be iconic moves, moves that require certain skill, moves that look the best, or whichever moves you just plain enjoyed seeing. Rank them 1 to 20. This is incredibly important for you to rank them. The top spot will be worth 20 points, the bottom spot will be worth 1. And deadline for lists is March 8th. So get your lists in!

    No. Not that. This:

    the fine men and women of PW.....
    I know, I know. I'm putting the same amount of original thought into this joke as creative put into Jack Swagger's new gimmick.

    Should we specify which version of a finisher we're endorsing? Like for the Ankle Lock, would I specify Kurt Angle's?

    Well, I wanted to let Kara know that she was welcome to participate.

    I am considering thinking about preparing a list right now.

    Define finishers, then. Is the SOS a finisher? What about Bryan's flying headbutt? They've won matches with them.

    And I'd imagine it looks like this:

    I think of it as a move that a wrestler consistently uses to win matches. Kofi's SOS has won maybe 2-3 matches in his entire career. It scores a near fall way more often than not.

    However, that criteria does technically discount the 619 as it's never the 619 that scores the pinfall, rather the follow-up move.

    You can make a case for the west coast pop. The only other variations are droppin the dime and the splash, which is TERRIBLE.

    Did anyone in WWE use a brainbuster or german suplex as a finisher?

    What about the moonsault? I know Essa Rios and Lita did. Anyone else?

    Kid Kash and Chavo both used Brainbusters as a finisher. German Suplex ... I don't know if anyone has used it as a regular finisher, but it's been used to win matches before.

    Eve also used the Moonsault as a finisher, right? And Alberto has won a match or two with it since turning face.

    It might have just been one match. If I recall correctly, it was a SmackDown either at the beginning of his face turn (when he started adopting a more face moves) or in the first couple weeks after he won the championship.

    I think I remember him doing it on Raw but it was botched.

    If Del Rio's only used it once or twice to win matches, then I wouldn't consider it a finisher anyway. My issue is I'm not sure whether I can just say moonsault or whether I have to say 'Essa Rios' moonsault' because Benson is apparently not answering questions about his own list

    Do we really have to complicate it this much? Kofi Kingston's SOS? Really? Does WWE not grind it in to someone's head what is a finisher and what isn't? For instance. Sheamus' finisher is the Brogue Kick, not White Noise. He used to finish with the High Cross, therefore it would also be acceptable.

    And yes, please refer to the wrestler that uses them in cases like Chokeslams, or the Playmaker (OverDrive).

    Sheamus has won a decent amount of matches with White Noise, though.

    Kofi's SOS might be a stretch, but there's definitely some grey area here.

    I wouldn't call either White Noise or SOS a finisher. They may get a rare 3-count against jabronis, but not against anyone else. To me the only "grey area" move I can think of is the 619 which could be seen as finisher but is almost always used as a setup move. I guess Goldberg's spear is another example.

    619 is a setup move. The Splash, Dropping the Dime, West Coast Pop would be the finishers.

    Now, the spear vs the Jackhammer would be an interesting scenario. I would allow Goldberg's Spear to be counted as a finisher. He's beaten more than enough people with it. He used it as a the setup alot, too, I know, but to me it's like when Cena hits the AA and then locks in the STF right after.

    Koko B. Ware also used (a sweet) brainbuster for a finisher.

    Angle, Benoit and IRS won a few matches with the german suplex against lower ranked competitors but Alundra Blayze is the only WWE wrestler I can think of who regularly finished opponents with the german.

    The moonsault was the closest thing the 1-2-3 Kid had to a finisher

    Was the German Charlie Haas' secondary finisher for a while or was that just for the video games?

    Wikipedia claims Charlie occasionally used a bridging german suplex as a finishing move, but I don't know how reliable that is or if it was used enough to count.

    I'm willing to count it, but honestly, who's going to put that on their list?
