The WWE is packed full of awesome powerful finishing moves, but simply hurting an opponent is not enough to get onto this list of the 25 top WWE finishers of all time. Oh hell no. Only the most electrifying, the most skilful, the most artistic and the most symbolic move will find their place in this list of top WWE finishers.
For inclusion in the list of the Top WWE Finishers, a Move Will:
Show Creativity: A finishing move should be unique and creative
Show Character: A finishing move should express the character of the wrestler.
Spectacle: The better it looks, the higher the WWE finisher will rank in this list
All WWE finishers in the list are from the past 10 years
The 25 Top WWE Finishers of All Time
25: Trish Stratus’ Stratusfaction:
Kicking off this list at number 25, one of the hottest WWE divas of all time, Trish Stratus. Not only does Trish Stratus look hot , she’s also one hell of a performer, which she shows through her finisher, Stratusfaction.
Stratusfaction matches Trish Stratus’ character perfectly. The cocky little salute to the crowd before she delivers stratusfaction really highlights her bubbly character and the move itself, a bulldog off the ropes, is one of the most original moves any diva has used. Add to this the fact that arguably no WWE diva has even been more popular than Trish Stratus, and it’s easy to see why Trish Stratus’s Stratusfaction is worthy of its place in this list.
24: Santino Marella: Cobra
What can be said about Santino Marella’s cobra? It’s stupid and hilarious, making it a perfect match for his character. It’s one heck of crowd pleaser, probably because it’s so ridiculous, and the fact that it reminds us all of Mick Foley’s Socko can only be a god thing.
23: Shane McMahoon – Coast to Coast
The best Coast to Coast Shane Mcmahon ever performed was against his father Vince McMahon at Wrestlemania 17. he literally flew across the ring. Millions of WWE fans though he wouldn’t make it, but then, we didn’t know Shane O Mac had wings.
22: Zack Ryder: Rough Ryder
Zack Ryder’s popularity may have slipped this year but nevertheless we all love a bit of Woo Woo Wooo. . .you know it. The Rough Ryder, which takes inspiration from bull riding is perfect for his character, being totally in your face and cocky.
