Ah the worst is a funny thing for finishers.

First off those ndxndx named are Mike Knox with his Roll of the Dice move that looks like he gets hurt more than his opponent, Cody Rhodes' odd rolling cutter again that looks like he gets more hurt from it, and Tommy Dreamer's a bit old school with his DDT, since they don't allow him to use the DVD since it looks too much like the Attitude Adjustment Cena uses (which in a way is a bit weak, it's only cool when he does it to huge guys like Big Show).

My worst finishers was Paul Burchill's old C-4 finisher where he gets you in a Rock Bottom and backflips with you, making for the worst physics of any move as your opponent has to jump with you. Also I hate when guys finish a match using a move that takes forever to do and looks like it does zero damage, like former talent Scotty 2 Hotty's Worm, The Rock's People's Elbow and such. I'm fine if you use it as a move in your move set like MVP with Ballin', Cena with the 5 Knuckle Shuffle and Kofi with his Boom Boom, just don't use it as a finisher.

Finally hate when someone does a move and cannot execute it too well. I look to Shane McMahon's weak Coast to Coast that almost hits nothing, when the Rock used to mess up the Sharpshooter, or ANY finisher former talent Billy Gunn used to do, heh.

Both The Miz and Morrison finishers are annoying to me, as in the miz's reality check and morrison's springboard kick/neckbreaker? (He now does springboard, followed up by the neckbreaker thing)

Both of these finishers annoy me because they are 2 part finishers, 1 hit, followed by a 2nd. Which brings me to another point, the scissors kick and the 619, the scissors kick the guy getting hit by it has to stand around for 5 seconds looking like a moron half standing up till booker or truth finally hits the move, or the 619 where reys opponent just sits on the ropes for a few seconds. How hard would it be to counter....

Yeah I hate 2 - part finishers.

Also DDT finishers are weak these days.. Though people who use em as finishers rarely ever win, like cody rhodes and tommy dreamer

Another problem, Kennedy/Shelton using the face drop thing (Kennedys one looks sloppy as hell and shelton should of stuck with the T Bone)

Final note - Morrison is allowed to use the corckscrew moonsault (W/e its called) again. FTW?

Edit#
MVP finisher is extremely awkward and just doesn't work with me (the play maker thing).

worst finisher - MVPs watever its called...

how does that shit even work??? it dont look like it hurts at ALL! why he need to put his leg on top of the other guy???
dont make any sense to me. if i were in that move, id just stand up - easy escape.

he needs to come up with something better or just stop using that crap.

Ah you mean MVP's Play of the Day and yes the look of that and the setup on the leg is just odd. Also noting some old responses thank goodnees Miz (Skull Crushing Finale-which really is the Stroke Jeff Jarrett uses in TNA) and Morrison (Starship Pain) moved onto better finishers.

Oddly in a year plus looking now, the easily worst finisher only due to who is doing it is the Verdict spinebuster of one David Otunga, who as CM Punk put it is not only dangerous in ring to others but likely himself. If not for his Jennifer Hudson links and sort of showing charisma he's very useless on Nexus (and note even Tarver AND Sheffield get mic time and he doesn't now?!). Now if he got training he could be good (and I lump 90% of the Divas with him-what a mess they and the leftover tag division is...). But I digress, the worst appearance right now has to be the Gate Crashers (Diesel/HBK wannabes-again showing recycling gimmicks is not the way to go), the Dude Busters (generic) and recently Kelly Kelly (who went from the happy gal to way too much makeup).

I'll give my two cents for this topic.

Far as worst finshers go off the top of my head the worm that scotty 2 hotty used to do looked silly.Add to that Great Khali's two finshers the head vice and tree chop of doom.Pretty much those three are the 3 worst I've seen .

Kaval - i like him, but his finisher is kinna blah... i mean, ANYBODY can jump off the top rope and land on their feet. but doing it to somebody is just... kinna dangerous... and dont look very risk-taking to me (unless u count the risk of legitimate injury it could cause...)

It is but remember a few things with the Warrior's Way foot stomp. One is he's been in the indies doing it for so long he's gotten so good hitting it safely considering the factors like body placement of his opponent and his weight. Trust me I've seen Kaval as Low Ki hit the move while former tag partner Homicide his the Cop Killah at the SAME TIME at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4Os1jZZlMk (OK fine the titles for the video not helping the danger level but again the wrestler was ok for a one time spot). I think high risk comes with ANYTHING coming off the top rope-TRUST me I've only stood on the middle ropes a few times and I get scared in a ring! When they jump from that height there's enough risk even on a simple foot stomp as you said.

Well also it's not like they'd allow his old finisher too since not many guys could take it, the Ki Krusher which is the Fisherman Buster, heh.

the thing i have against Kavals finisher is that its not spectacular to me. theres no risk to that move. hes not putting his body on the line if it misses, unlike a 540 or a flying elbow drop or a Snuka body splash. if he misses, hes just gonna land on his feet.
but hey, thats just my opinion. i guess he can sell some risk by landing awkwardly... but then again that wouldnt make any sense... idk, just my opinion...

another wrestlers finishing moves im starting to HATE are Melina's. its not the moves i have a problem with, but that damn SCREAM of hers! ahaha! man thats annoying! the moves are watever, but please, drop that scream Melina!

Now Melina I can very much agree as some of her moves look fine at times like her version of the Red Alert she calls the Last Call (odd since that was a move name JBL used) and even that snapmare driver she used upon return looked good, but her Sunset Split is atrocious as it looks SO awkward, then as you noted add the scream. It sort of worked to get someone like Daffney over when she first did it in WCW but for Melina it again seems out of place for her character. Her splits for an entrance was just fine there too, not as a move.

Bigshow's 1 punch is uber lame.
So is the AA cena uses
I hate the 619 with a passion

But I do see a great crowd reaction to these moves/characters etc. so I guess nothing will change on that front.

Anything Kelly kelly does
Ditto for r-truth [email protected]
Anything bella twin

Please release these people!

Funny the new silly finisher of the C4/Moonlight Drive which Paul Burchill used is now being used by John Morrison. It looks amazing until one thinks that this move is 100% on the OPPONENT flipping and getting hurt!

Funny you mention too the 619-when Rey was on the indies a while back he ALWAYS got booed for doing the 619 as it's seen as a "WWE move" which the hardcore fans hate. The gal Truth comes out with (sorry had to edit the word a slight bit for the site's rules on such words) is Eve and yes she sucks at dancing and her finisher is also pretty bad as it's some flip that never hits like her dropkicks. Kelly Kelly (who also has a lousy finisher which I can't even describe) and the Bellas only hang around for eye candy if even that or someone to walk the guest stars out on RAW as a perk. Sadly you'll see more of the Divas who can wrestle released than the ones who can't...

Right on, I understand the non wrestling divas are around for product placement and I get that, but then don't put them in the ring.
Use them as valets, get female commentary for real female wrestling, quit making the same mistakes over and over, it insults me as a wrestling fan that they try to make me cheer for people who can't wrestle, whereas women like awesome kong and sereeta are on the indies looking in.
Women that they have, that actually can wrestle like gail and maryse are used as props and the curvy god awful eves and kellys are still being forced down my throats
