Finishing Moves List (from USENET's newsgroup) compiled, edited, and kept by Curtis "Chewbacca" Desjardins ( ) now in the hands of: Scott Lacy ( ) at least until Curtis returns from Korea date created: September 13, 1992 last revised: February 3, 1999 + column 1 is a description of the move + column 2 is for "trademark" names of moves (if any) + column 3 is for the wrestler who uses/used the named move + the named wrestler will have used the move as a finisher exclusively (or most of the time) during one point in their career (emphasis here is used exclusively as a finisher meaning just because a wrestler used a move once, does not make that move a finisher eg. Bret Hart beat Bob Backlund with the Crossface Chickenwing at Wrestlemania 11, but Hart's finisher is still the Sharpshooter) + once used as a finisher, it remains in the list, so some wrestlers may have several entries corresponding to different points in their careers + moves are categorized by how they end, and are qualified by how they are set-up (thus brainbusters are lumped with DDT's) + a number in braces (eg. [2] ) denotes a footnote Credits: + this list is by no means complete, and is constantly under revision with thanks to the following for their insights, suggestions, additions, and changes (hope I didn't forget anybody): Rodrigo Badawy, Jeff Ballew, Scott Baxter, Paul Beneker, Christopher Bird, Jared Brame, Ed Branscom, Clay Breshears, N.

Shyster Toe-Hold, Upside-dwn Stepovr w/Sleeper Reverse STF Hiroshi Hase Turnbuckle Smash Snake Eyes Vinnie Vegas Wristlock, Quarter-Nelson Breaker One-Nine Blacktop Bully [1] Abdominal Stretch (manji gatame) Abdominal Stretch Antonio Inoki The Octopus is really just a variation of a traditional abdominal stretch (I just didn't know how to describe it in Column 1). Stand to the left of your opponent, grapevine his left leg with your right leg, bend his body to the left (as with an abdominal stretch), hook your left leg over his head, and wrap your arms around his chest, grasping your hands together. If executed right, not one part of your body should be touching the ground (you'll look like a spider clinging to your opponent's back) [2] Airplane Spin Giant Swing Lioness Asuka The Giant Swing isn't really an airplane spin, but is a close relative. Grab your opponent's legs as if to apply a boston crab, but instead of turning them over, spin around and around, swinging them thru the air. [3] Backbreaker, Hanging Inverted Body Vice Jesse Ventura The hanging backbreaker is applied from a piledriver set-up position. Jesse Ventura called the move the "Body Breaker" while he wrestled, and the "Inverted Body Vice" once he took up color commentary, but your mileage may vary. [4] Backbreaker, Twisting --------------- Demolition Crush Although Demolition Crush used the usual Demolition finisher when in tag matches, he did use the twisting (tilt-a-whirl) backbreaker in singles matches. And we all know that Demolition Crush isn't the same guy as Bruddah Crrrrrrush (aka Kona Crush). For one thing, where's his Hawaiian accent? ;-) [5] DDT, Upside-down Facelock Gator-buster Skinner The opponent is grabbed from behind (sort of a front facelock, except it's not from the front, if that makes any sense). The opponent is looking up at the lights with his nose in your armpit. Fall back and drop him on his head. [6] Clothesline (w/ football clip) Double Goozle Midnight Express Two of the Midnight's many finishers. The football clip from behind, and the thrust kick to the head from the front are simultaneous. [7] Leg Drop Hulk-buster Yokozuna This is just a joke. This move is in reference to the "Legdrop Heard 'Round the World" when Yokozuna used it to pin Hogan cleanly at King of the Ring '93. [8] Leglock, Inside Toehold Fuller Leglock Ron Fuller This move is basically impossible to describe, but let me try by saying it is a shin grapevine in combination with an achilles tendon hold. [9] Piledriver, Top-rope Handstand Head-Scissors [9] Kyoko Inoue This one I haven't seen. The opponent is sitting on the top-rope (a la superplex). Kyoko does a handstand, putting a head scissors on the opponent, then uses her legs to piledrive the opponent off the ropes. [10] Piledriver, Body Slam Northern Lights Bomb Akira Hokuto Pick up your opponent in a body slam position, and instead of slamming them, drop down and drive their shoulders/neck into the mat. This can and does look brutal if done right. (But then it _is_ Akira) [11] Power Bomb, Crucifix Razor's Edge Razor Ramon Despite the debate RSP-W had a while back, it looks more like a powerbomb variation to me than it does a suplex or a slam. It is setup like a hanging backbreaker (lifted higher onto the back), and you fall forward, driving your opponent into the mat. [12] Power Bomb, Crucifix (Vertical) Tsutenkaku Special Dynamite Kansai This is as above in [11], except instead of falling forward with your opponent, you drop them straight down into a more traditional power bomb. Kansai used to call this the Tsutenkaku Special, but through many uses, and the fact that she also used the Splash Mountain finisher (aka Razor's Edge), this move also came to be known as Splash Mountain [13] Backbreaker, Hanging Gorry Special Gorry Guerrero [13] Backbreaker, Hanging Gorry Special Eddy Guerrero [13] Power Bomb, Hanging Backbreaker Gorry Special Bomb Eddy Guerrero [13] Suplex, Upsd-dwn Bel2Bak(w/Bridge) Rvrsd Gorry Special Bmb T. Yamada These 4 moves use the basis set-up, so I'll explain all 4 here. With the G.Special, it's like a hanging backbreaker except the opponent's legs are "grapevined" in front of you (sorta looks like you've got him in a backbreaker and a boston crab all at once). The G.Special Bomb is the same as the G.Special, except you drop the opponent in a "powerbomb". The Reversed G.Special Bomb is as the G.Special Bomb except the opponent is upside down (their legs are over your shoulders, and held in front of you, arms held in a "chickenwing" type armlock) before they are dropped in powerbomb fashion. [14] Piledriver, Spike Spike Piledriver Brainbusters [14] Elbow Smash, Top-rope Jaw Jacker Tracy Smothers Someone said that the Midnight Express also used the Spike Piledriver as a finisher, calling it the Gravedigger, as well as a Double Top-rope Elbow Smash, calling it the Ping Pong. I want to discount these claims if only because I followed the Midnights for much of their career, and have never heard of the alleged "Gravedigger" and "Ping Pong" finishers. If anyone can confirm either one, let me know. [15] Slam, Fall-away Airbourne Slam Cpl. Kirchner Bobby Heenan was the first to call the move the Papoose-to-go. All of RSP-W thought it was joke until Vince McMahon used the term only months later. However, Stan Lane called the move the Renegade Drop until Tatanka ended all doubts by naming it "The End of the Trail" after selling out to Ted DiBiase. [16] Sleeper Weaver Lock Dusty Rhodes Sean Helfrich: "There was a brief time in the mid-80's when Big Dust was using the deadly Weaver Lock against the 4 Horsemen. Dusty claimed he was taught by Johnny Weaver himself." [17] Sleeper, Upside-down Facelock Dragon Sleeper Tatsumi Fujinami Do the reverse DDT from [5], placing each arm through the opponent's armpits, clasp your hands behind your opponents back, then start squeezing. [18] Splash, Slingshot Swan Dive Rick Martel Your opponent is in the ring laying down by the ropes, you are on the apron outside the ring. Grab the ropes, lean back, and slingshot yourself into the ring and onto your opponent. [19] Stump Puller Stump Puller Big Bully Busick The opponent's sitting down. You come from behind, sit on the back of his neck, then grab both oppontent's legs and pull. Herb's explanation of the hold has something to do with getting an erection and pressure to the back of the neck, or some such nonsense. ;-) [20] Head, Tennis Racket to the Back of Ricky Morton's Jim Cornette It's been used often enough, it may as well be on this list (Thanks Andrew! ;-) [21] Tights, Handful of --------------- Ric Flair Ibid. [22] Clothesline, Top-rope Patriot Missle The Patriot [22] Shoulder Block, Top-rope Patriot Missle The Patriot I've only seen the top-rope clothesline called the Patriot Missle, while others have said it was a top-rope shoulder block. No one can say when he switched from one to the other, but they were both the Patriot Missle. [23] Ear Buster, Stomach Turning --------------- Vince McMahon Thanks to Craig Giddens for this one! [24] Claw, Face Two-handed Compactor/Head Vise Crush Also known as the Achy Breaky Head, according to my brother Aaron. [25] Sleeper, Head/Neck Scissors Triangle Hold Kensuke Sasake I think this is also called the Strangle Hold Gamma in Japan, but I've been told there are subtle differences between them. If anyone can enlighten me further, please feel free. [26] Knee Drop, Top-rope Pitstop Plunge Bob Holly [26] Splash, Top-rope Pitstop Plunge Bob Holly Thurman "Sparky" Plugg/Bob "Spark Plug" Holly has had 2 finishers: the top- rope splash, and the top-rope knee drop. Stan Lane has referred to both moves as the Overhead Cam. Later, Stan was in the mood to change the name to the Pitstop Plunge, referring to either or both moves again. But then Holly may have just screwed up the moves so that it looks like either one on a given day. Is it a knee drop or a splash? Who cares. Stan refers to both as the Pitstop Plunge. But then again, the only ones worse than Stan for commentary are Tony "Armdrag and Twist" Schiavone and Dusty "It looks like some sort of flippity-floppity type manouever" Rhodes. As an aside, in SMW, Hollywood Bob Holly's finisher was a Top-rope knee drop. [27] Leglock, Standing Figure 4 /w pin Delphin Clutch Super Delphin This was described to me as a sort-of standing figure four. You apply the scorpion onto your opponent, but instead of flipping him over, you kneel down and lean over, pinning him to the mat. Sort of. [28] Leglock, Figure Four Powerlock Johnny Powers Also known as the Figure-8 Leglock, cause it hurts twice as bad as the Figure-4. [29] Piledriver (from Verticle Suplex) Steiner Square Driver Scott Steiner This has been called the Pileplex here in N. America, but Scott doesn't use it as a finisher here. In Japan, where he's used the move to cover opponents, it is called the Steiner Square Driver. Why `Square'? Maybe you can explain it to me, cause I ain't got a clue. Also called the Steiner Death Drop. [30] Piledriver, Belly2Belly Reverse Piledriver Don Muraco Also known as the "This one's for Jesse the Body" Piledriver. [31] Slam, Throat (w/ twist) Golden Arm Bomber Hiroshi Hase Where did the term "Golden Arm Bomber" come from? I've been told that this may be a "Meltzerism". As far as I know, only the terms Nodowa and Uranage are used. [32] Power Bomb, Abdominal Stretch Atom Smasher Adam Bomb Adam Bomb had to change finishers once Diesel started using the Jackknife powerbomb, so he ever-so-briefly used the stretch bomb, and strangely calling it the Atom Smasher, the same name as his powerbomb [34] Suplex, Top-rope Fisherman --------------- Mike Modest This is not the same as Jushin Liger's Super Fishermanbuster. The SFbuster is basically a top-rope gourdbuster while hooking the leg. Modest's move is a cradle suplex from the top-rope. [35] Full Nelson, Double Chickenwing Rev. Nelson Deathlock Mitsuharu Misawa Scott Lacy: "[...] it looks kinda like a Tigerdriver set-up, but instead of the arms being clasped in a double-arm suplexish fashion, they're clasped behind the victim's head, pushing it downwards." [36] Armbar, Crucifix (w/ Neck Sumbission) Dandina El Dandy to describe this one. Basically, put your opponent into a crucifix, and with the leg nearest your opponents neck, force his head down such that his chin is touching his chest. So, in other words, the move is a surfboard submission from a crucifix position with a neck submission thrown in for good measure. [37] Kick, Thrust "It's the Big Foot!" Meng This is the only thing Tony "Armdrag and Twist" Schiavone shouts when Meng hits it. [38] Frankensteiner, Top-rope ---------- Jushin Liger [38] Frankensteiner, Top-rope Head Scissors Diving Huracanrana Rey Misterio Jr These two moves are not the same. Liger sits his opponent on the top rope (a la superplex), leaps up and Frankensteiner's him to the mat. Rey on the other hand just leaps from the top-rope onto a standing opponent, using a flying head scissors to execute his Frankensteiner. [39] DDT ---------- Jake Roberts When asked what the initials "DDT" stood for, Jake simply said, "The End". [40] Power Bomb ---------- Sid Vicious Wade Keller has referred to Sid's powerbomb as a "drop bomb", as there's very little power put into it. Diesel's Jacknife, and Vader's recent powerbombs may also be categorized as drop bombs. [41] Thumb to the Throat Oriental Spike[41] Terry Gordy Oriental Tool Punch[41] Brian Adias Ray Duffy: "The Oriental Spike is basically, drive your thumb into someone's neck and hold it there for the submission [...] Supposedly, the Tool Punch was to take your thumb, swing at someone and hit them in the neck like a nerve strike." [43] Splash, Top-rope Slingshot Backflip Split-Leg Moonsault Rob Van Dam In All Japan, this move is called the Hollywood Star Press. [44] Power Bomb Starting with the February 1998 revision of the list, I have decided to split the Power Bomb up into several categories, since there are several varieties of the "basic" power bomb. The "regular" power bomb I will define as being the basic "Pick 'em up and throw 'em down" variety, a la Sid or Kevin Nash. The "jumping" power bomb I will define as being a power bomb where the person executing the move jumps as he brings the victim down, landing on his posterior. Jushin Liger's Liger Bomb is the classic example of this. The "folding" power bomb is defined as a basic power bomb, but the wrestler rolls the power bomb into a pin attempt by holding onto the victim's legs and leaning down on top of them (folding them). [45] Bulldog, Top-rope (from shoulders) --------------- Steiners In New Japan, this move is called the Manhattan Bulldog. [46] Power Bomb, Jumping Belly2Belly Rydeen Bomb Satoshi Kojima Visually looks like a spinebuster dropped into a power bomb.
