Top 10 Most Painful WWE Finishers

The Top Ten

1 Tombestone Piledriver - Undertaker

No matter how strong it is... In the end of the day its just a reverse version in other words it's a less painful, less harmful, less life threading, more safer move. But the original version well... Not much are alive to talk about it after getting it. It's banded in wrestling for a reason anyway. But the tombstone is still deadly if not as much as the original

Currently 21-0. He beat almost every wrestlemania opponent with this this move besides maybe triple H. This move can break your neck! Taker beat so many greats with this move- the tombstone! - TB1

Yes undertaker's tombstone should have the crown. It is very effective. This is really strong. He won 80% of of his match with tombstone. Keep it up taker.

Only 9 men have kicked out.
1. Kane - Wrestlemania XIV (Lost)
2. Batista - Wrestlemania XXIII (Lost)
3. Edge - Wrestlemania XXIV (Lost)
4. Shawn Michaels - Wrestlemania XXV (Lost)
5. Triple H - Wrestlemania XXVIII (Lost)
6. CM Punk - Wrestlemania XXIX (Lost)
7. Brock Lesnar - Wrestlemania XXX (Won)
8. Bray Wyatt - Wrestlemania XXXI (Lost)
9. Roman Reigns - Wrestlemania XXXIII (Won)

2 Punt Kick - Randy Orton

That's just pure devastation, dude it put people in the hospital! Nearly takes your head off :O

It's the most dangerous attack I have ever seen in WWE

It is the best and most dangerous finisher in WWE history.

Vince got fainted and became serious once. Even John Cena could not kick it out

3 Attitude Adjustment - John Cena

Never give up is always one of the victory

The greatest wrestler in the WWE with one of the best Finisher and Submission Hold - JOHN CENA!

John Cena you are the one of the most biggest Player in wwe history

Never Give Up

4 Sphere - Roman Reigns

I like sphere of roman reigns. It is really of very high impact

It should be number two. It is the best move as th undertaker was 23-2 just because of the spare.

Sphere is my favourite because of Roman Reigns is my favourite

The hardcore move for the devastating champion

5 RKO - Randy Orton

Wow, you didn't see that coming when the Viper slithers his way to grab you by the neck and drop your head right in the ground. You'll be having the worst headache of your life after that attack.

Randy orton is the best he can beat any greats including the suck up John Cena randy orton beats John Cena in their first match

Its cool and most danger...

1 of the most dangerous shot in wwe...

6 Sweet Chin Music - Shawn Micheals

It takes your off in mma someone did that to me I was knocked out for 3 days ):/

Not worthy enough same as super kick dolph can't pin owens with it

Almost the same as a super kick just with a whole lot more strength and right into the jaw

His thearatics is very good and he is a sexy boy.So I think it should be number 1

7 F-5 - Brock Lesnar

How is this behind sweet chin music and big show's stupid punch, dude the guy helicopters you in the air and you land both on your body and head

This deserves in no. 1. WMD, Punt kick does not deserve no 2 and three in this list. - subhashsahu

The most painful and devastating move in wrestling history. The F5!

F5 should be 1 or 2nd because it's really high impact of hitting ground, it's is not an simple thing to do strength atlatism speed all include in this move only lesnar can able to do f5 an simple even for the guys like big show mark Henry,strowman it's just like walking on park for lesnar it is the most devistrating move, during f5s an person surely suffers to breath,it's surly destroy ribs of an person getting f5 lesnar just spin over head and land the ground with face first all may thing f5 is just face first for opponents,but the real big think,fact is ribs definitely it's also cause severe head ache it's blocks breath,it's really a awesome move I've ever seen,the pure power, muscular strength to lift 350 to 500 pounder and the atlatism of landing only the guys of 180 pounds to 260 pounds can survive f5 because they are not high in weight,all know f5 is a devistrating The fact is weight big a opponent who receiving f5 from lesnar too much of weight is collapse the person ribs you ...more

8 619 - Rey Mysterio

If it touches your head then your skull is cracked
If it touches your eyes then you are blind
If it touches your nose then you will go to hospital
If it touches your mouth you will not able to speak for some time

And if it touches everything then you not see this wrestler again

Really very painful as someone hits his both legs in motion direct at your face

It's the best not even John Cena has kicked out of it will knock you right in the next week

So good

9 Pedigree - Triple H

Pedigree is one of the best finishers in WWE you basically land on your head and body with h's legs on your head both landing on the floor with head on bottom of h's legs I think it should be second place

I think The pedigree is the most painful finisher and why are people saying the aa everybody kicked out and brick lesnar kicked out at one

But daniel bryan kicked out the pedigree on wrestlemania 30

This is one of the dangerous finishers.most has never kicked out of it

V 3 Comments
10 Kimura Clutch - Brock Lesnar

It's a UFC maneuver, of cause it will hurt more than these other moves, especially when most of them are fake

It almost kills your hands

It breaks your arm bone it has broken the arm of shawn Michaels and triple h

This Move CanBreak Your arm &Break Your Spirit Too

The Contenders

11 WMD - Big Show

Has anyone kicked out of it?
No one except sheamus

15 inch fist to your face

WMD is a very very very devastating move.

It's the most basic move. A simple punch.

V 5 Comments
12 Stunner - Stone Cold

Stunner is the most powerful finisher in the history of WWF

You suck everyone that did not vote for Steve Austin

Best finisher in WWE history

He is best

V 18 Comments
13 Chokeslam - Kane

The best finisher ever next to Piledriver. Why is this the 13nth man

Just 5 seconds carried in mid air. It makes you choke

Chokeslam from over 2 meters? You are dead

Chokeslam From Kane=HELL!

V 8 Comments
14 Batista Bomb - Batista

Why the Batista Bomb? Simple its one of the few finishers nobody kicked out after being hit by it twice in a row.

Batista is awesome, and powerbombs really do hurt and back when he weight 325 imagine how that would feel, this should be higher up

15 Figure Four Leg Lock - Ric Flair
16 Jackhammer - Goldberg

Just 8 seconds of being upside down having blood flow to your brain no kicked out of it

Jackhammer will ever be the greatest and the most painful finisher ever in we history period because some people stupidly underestimated the jackhammer because no one has kick out of the jackhammer

To the guy who claims he "almost killed a friend" because of this move, the WWE have warned audiences many times "Do NOT try this at home". how stupid are you to do so?

Best finisher it will reverse your blood and then draw you to unconsciousness

17 Walls of Jericho - Chris Jericho
18 World's Strongest Slam - Mark Henry

Worst move in history

Most week move from a Strong wrestler Like Mark Henry.
I think World Strongest Splash Is Pretty Good Than This.



19 Swanton Bomb - Jeff Hardy

My favourite wrestler has the best finisher ever

Swanton bomb is the most stylish finisher eventhough it maybe not so painful than other finisher but it still can beat big show


20 Sharpshooter - Bret Hart
21 Codebreaker - Chris Jericho

Two knees to your face, not effective when executed badly, but when done properly painful.

Code breaker should be the first in the list imagine that a knee smashing your head like a hammer beating on your head it is the finisher that worth for jericho

I think it's pretty cool and when I look at it I can see that it looks REALLY painful

Most bad move in wwe history

My favorite

31 Curb Stomp - Seth Rollins

What next time you're face gets stomped on tell me if it hurts

How is this not 1#? Stomping someones head in the ground can kill somebody.

Your face gets stomped into the ground. How is this below Reigns's Spear? - KingSlayer93316

It should be on number 1

V 7 Comments
32 Brogue Kick - Sheamus

#2 it leaves a foot mark in your face

33 Package Piledriver - Kevin Steen

Kevin steen -na no more only Kevin Owens (same people)

34 Spear - Roman Reigns

If it spear then what is sphere that was on 7th rank? Well Roman is my favourite superstar

This is a good move but not great like roman reigns

He is the most powerful wrestler to give the most powerful spear

It isss the most powerful attack in the world Goldberg can't even give this much powerful spear I salute Roman reigns

35 Styles Clash - AJ Styles

It's dangerous.
He puts you in the powerbomb position, you hang your legs on his collarbones, he puts his legs over your arms, and BOOM!

Spear is invented by goldberg, but edge is the master of spear. When edge spears, the man who's getting the spear looks like he is sitting on a chair!

Guy's this is a most painfully

41 German Suplex - Brock Lesnar
