The Top Ten

Tombstone Piledriver - The Undertaker
Its the best move ever performed in wwe performed by the best wrestler in the world. He never lost a single match in wreslemania thanks to tombstone and the hells gate. He is gonna rock in future wrestlemania also.
I have to vote this one. It has been finishing matches for over two decades. Countless people have been laid to rest by this move.
Come on guys, the tombstone is beast. All that hurt on your head, it ends matches in a heart beat. Best move but just by a slim margin of the RKO.
[Newest]Sometimes I wonder do it really hurt.

2RKO - Randy Orton
I think that Tombstone and pedigree can't get to RKO because RKO is far more quick and Randy can perform it hundreds of times without being tired because it doesn't take any power of him + one of shortest time requiring move in WWE just like giving a kick to someone!
It is most dangerous move in the history there is no other move like that. And Also Randy Orton rocks rocks
It is the sharpest and the wuickest move in WWE that can be hit out of nowhere... RKO rocks...
[Newest]I think the RKO is one of the best moves in the WWE, because it is so quick, it could just come out of nowhere. It is like a huge DDT.

3Stone Cold Stunner - Steve Austin
toughest, quickest and the most stylish finishing move.. This should be on the top... I feel rko is a sloppy version of stone cold stunner
This is the most cool move ever... Not just because it does massive damage to the opponent but also stunts the person... THE STUNNER rocks... The best ever move... That's STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN
Austin 3:16 says I just whipped your ass!
[Newest]He's my favorite and his finishing move is stunning as his name

4Attitude Adjustment - John Cena
It is the only great move in wwe universe I have ever saw in my life. It can make a dead person to get up without what is happening around them.
I like FU because John Cena can do it very night. LIke he Fu The Big Show He was like The Greatest of the world John Cena says that he will never give up. Until he will get the Champion Belt and keep that gold belt. We love you John Cena!
F-U is the best because john cena never gives up and it was used almost every night on raw or smack down
[Newest]I like John Cena & I like his smack

5F-5 - Brock Lesnar
Was the most devastating move in WWE history.. was deadly.. really miss him.. here comes the pain
F5 can be performed any where and can be as dangerous as the performer want with this move brock really hurt and injured the best in wwe and without brock lesnar no one can match to this move. Becaous every thing he did matched him.
F5 is the strongest and most power full move in wwe and no one can escape it should be in the top -world wrestling entertainment chief manager suvin
[Newest]F5 is one of the most AWESOME move ever!

6Pedigree - Triple H
I did this to my younger cousin once... he ended up in a hospital for a few days.. I gave him whiplash.. lmao


More like the deadigree ;)... it ends all matches, very different, its quick, you can do it to ANYONE, and its really a deadly move in real life, amazing


The pedigree is so cool and it will be the no. 1 and after that the 619.


[Newest]Pedigree it's my favorite best luck for team authority

7Sweet Chin Music - Shawn Michaels
Simply the best MOVE ever, nobody could do it and bring such a sense of reality like Shawn Michaels, it really looked like he just turned their faces to frying pans. The allure, the set up, the selling, even the sound of it rocked. You're Still missed Shawn <3, you're the best ever.
One of the best finishers in history, not to mention that it is by the best wrestler in history
Shawn michaels is the best in world. He was the best finisher in wwe history
[Newest]It is the best

8Rock Bottom - The Rock
It is the most electrifying move in wwe history no one can stand up in this move.
Through this move many of the best wrestler loose like: John Cena, Randy, Bigshow, Rey mysterio Hulk Hogan& many other wrestler
The rock is best and rock bottom should be no. 1 in this list
[Newest]The rock is best

9Batista Bomb - Batista
The batista bomb is the most cool move I've ever seen and batista is the person who started his own wwe title the batista bomb drains your energy because your slammed on your back and when you loose power and then your head followes your back so when your first hit on your back your energy gets drained and when your head follows you hit your head so hard your knocked out
The batista bomb just drives your back straight into the ground. After bean given a batista bomb it will just drain every little bit of energy in you and in will stop your momentum. It is just pure strangth the whole move I don't think uses much skill just strangth and momentum.
It shoulsd be on top 3

10Swanton Bomb - Jeff Hardy
b'coz the sky is no limit for jeff hardy
Jeff's swanton bomb is like an eagle flying from the sky to the ground to catch his prey.
The Charaismatic Enigma Can destroy any one with the Swanton Bomb, The Creature Of The Night Can Soar through the sky from 20 feet and destroy them ending the match. EXTREME!

The Contenders

11Spear - Bill Goldberg
Thus move should be on top
His spear is very dangerous and causes serious injury.
Its absolutely a killer moves, wayy deadlier than any other superstar on WWE..
[Newest]His spear is very dangerous

12Go 2 Sleep - CM Punk
BEST MOVE EVER, IT should be in the top 10. But whoever typed in the choice of this move was wrong. IT's not the Good Night. It's The Go To Sleep or GTS

29Crippler Crossface - Chris Benoit
The one reason that Benoit used to lock this in from any side or any position the opponent was incredible.. And for me.. Crippler Crossface is one of the best finishing moves ever.
This should be in top 10!
It made triple h tap at WM 20 only about maybe less than 2 min after benoit applied it there is a variant of this used by Daniel bryan known as I think the lebell lock then the yes lock then the no lock, this one finisher made benoit win so many matches its also great how at great timing including being able to successfully and quickly trip the legs and get the arms around the face it is a truly devastating move
This should be higher than 29.

43Eye Pop - Bhavya Rai
When bhavya Rai was a kid, The Undertaker tried to taste his baby food, well the then 2 year old bhavya was so furious that he lost his cool and stared at The Undertaker, The Undertaker died on the spot, and ever since he is known as the deadman. That's how the eye pop originated
Bhavya Rai once stared down dr. Isaac yankem, that stare burned his face and left the behemoth embarrassed, ever since to hide his scars and moreover that embarrassing moment, he wears a mask and calls himself Kane. He says that he is The Undertakers brother because both of em were embarrassed by the same person, mr. Mighty bhavya himself. They hold arms and give each other a shoulder to cry on, when those dark memories strike em again
He is insane, how can someone defeat his opponent by staring at him, he is a talented wrestler

44Irish Curse Backbreaker - Sheamus
This is so awesome and the victim breaks his bones! And after little recovery he gets up and turns other side then BAM the brouge kick connects then it is good bye to the victim. SHEMAS wins the match
