Wrestling finishers are moves usually to end a professional wrestling match and a part of the wrestlers individual trademarks. To be a professional wrestler you need at least one finishing wrestling move. These are some of the best of the best and favourites of mine out of the performing arts genre. This list is in no particular order it is near impossible to do other wise.

10. Figure 4 leglock

 

Wrestler Finisher: Ric Flair

Woooooooooooooooooooo! The nature boy makes the list by using one of the most classic wrestling submissions in history. It is perfected with his daughter Charlotte Flair with it being called the figure eight leg lock.

8. Styles Clash
  • Wrestler Finisher: AJ Styles

One of the most dangerous moves to do that could actually break someones neck. And it has with some people.

7. Sweet Chin Music
  • Wrestler Finisher: Shawn Michaels

The Heartbreak kid was the first person to use the superkick well. Now everybody wants to be Shawn Michaels and the finisher has been reduced to a signature move.

6. Frog splash
  • Wrestler Finisher: Eddie Guerrero, Rob Van Dan

RVD and Eddie has made the frog splash famous and now everyone uses it. Looks way cooler than a normal splash. I miss Eddie and Rob Van Dan.

4. Stone Cold Stunner
  • Wrestler Finisher: Stone Cold Steve Austin

One of the simplest moves that looks very impressive. Made famous by Stone Cold Steve Austin it is one of the most recognisable wrestling finishers in the world. If I was in a real fight and saw the opportunity to do it, I would.

3. RKO/Diamond Cutter
  • Wrestler Finisher: Randy Ortan, Diamond Dallas Page

Speaking of one of the most recognizable finishers in the world, It is now known as the RKO. I would do this wrestling move if I had to attack someone from out of no where.

2. Canadian Destroyer
  • Wrestler Finisher: Petey Williams

The flip pile driver is an impressive move to see and pull off. Flipping over a wrestler as the other person does a backflip landing on their head. Check it out in the video above. When I use to do backyard wrestling I took this move.

1. Tombstone Piledriver
  • Wrestler Finisher: Undertaker, Kane and more!

The classic piledriver used as finishers by The Undertaker and Kane. Many other wrestlers use this move because it is that good. Never dissapoints me.
