Best Finishing Moves In WWE History


The Top Ten

1 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.

This is the best ever

The tombstone pile driver is the and strongest finishers in WWE (R.I.P)

2 RKO - 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!

Hump me

Rko outta nowhere!

He is the best in the world ( RKO ) MY FANS till today tomorrow and forever Randy Orton

3 Stone 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

Stunner #1, why? It's banned in 7 states, point made! Rko #2, why? It's as close to a stunner as you can come! Point made! Respect wise tombstone piledriver is #3 and only that low because truly it's a pile driver! Yes it can hurt you but it's not banned in 7 states so what does that tell you! I have super huge respects for the rick slap and the iron claw by the von erichs (for the young ones who don't know) but pound for pound the stunner is only one of very very few moves to ever be outlawed! I'm not older than dirt, just old enough to know I can talk abd walk my opinion!

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

4 F-5 - Brock Lesnar

Was the most devastating move in WWE history.. was deadly.. really miss him.. here comes the pain

F5 was the best smack in wwe history the beast

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

5 Rock 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

It's the best move it's better than stunner and f5,RKO. Rock defeated rowen in 6 seconds by rock bottom. It should be at top.

The rock is best and rock bottom should be no. 1 in this list

It is a very complicated move and it could go wrong but it does a lot of damage to the opposition and when they are on the floor you could easily pin them out to win the match and claim the WWE champion.

6 Pedigree - Triple H

the game h

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

I gave this move to my cousin on pillow but still he cried for an hour with his face red

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 - SmoothCriminal

7 Sweet Chin Music - Shawn Michaels

One of the best move in the world wrestling

Very versatile and can fit many situations, brilliant

One of the best finishers in history, not to mention that it is by the best wrestler in history

There's no question.. Sweet Chin Music is without doubt the best finishing move in the history of WWE..

8 Attitude Adjustment - 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

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!

9 Swanton 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!

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Jeff hardy thru that table.

10 Batista 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

This is best finishing move

Batista bomb is an ultimate powerbomb

Greatest and most effective

The Contenders

11 Chokeslam - Kane, Undertaker, Big Show

Chokeslam is the best! The Big Red Machine Rules!


Chokeslam is the best and when The Big Red Machine Kane will give you a Chokeslam you will straightly go to Hell Kane is the best

It made kane the world heavyweight champion in seconds

12 Spear - Bill Goldberg

This move is really Awesome. Goldberg strikes suddenly and his force is just unmatchable. 2 spears to Brock Lesnar and he was really in pain. The velocity of Goldberg was just awesome. Wish I could see more spears from Goldberg to today's wrestlers


My favourite is beast the Brock lesnar but my favourite smack move is bill gold berg SPEAR this move is dangerous for wwe superstars I give spear anyone I tell the what is spear no one beat me?

His spear is very dangerous and causes serious injury.

13 619 - Rey Mysterio

It is awesome move. Also a cool name like 619.I love it. Also many WWE fans

But this finisher only can be done in the other finisher they can do anywhere

The 619 should be number 1 because it's so cool I'd like to try to do it on my friend and I'm a fan of Rey mysterio since I'm 6 years old. And I wish they will bring him back on WWE 2k17. I also wish he would make a surprise entrance at royal rumble 2017 at entry number 30

My favourite wrestler and my favourite finisher

The spear is a powerful smack in WWE. Roman Reigns was a king of spear.

15 Stylish Kick - John Morrison

This Move Is Only done By Aj styles In tna And JOhN MOrrison In WWE great kick to get people. Out

16 Spear - Edge

Edge was a dangerous wrestler he speard you from any angle

What this is the best move ever it should be number 1

How the hell can this move be so low...It is one of most devastating moves there ever can be and it actually finished off matches..Remember the 173-0 streak at WCW and WWE...Bill Goldberg legacy lives on and Jackhammer continues to be the best move ever. Lets get it to #1

When he hit this on the Giant (or big show now), unbelievable!

40 Hells Gate - Undertaker

Knocked out brock lesner

41 German Suplex - Brock Lesnar

Best move

Is he German

Suplex city,s great suplex and it likes more good if he will give it to giants(big show,Mark Henry)

42 Crippler 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.

Yesss deserves to be recognized by WWE

43 Killswitch - Christian

And Christian hits the switch.AMAZING FINISHER

44 Phenomenal Forearm - AJ Styles

This is very good and powerful I am the fan of aj styles

Who thinks phenominal forearm is more effective than styles clash

It's very powerful - it's literally someone jumping from the top rope and punching you mid-air; that should at least be top 20 - disgraceful... much better than the people's elbow or sister abigail

I think this could beet a rock bottom anyday
