“They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. This is especially true when one considers some of sports-entertainment’s greatest finishing maneuvers. Although some moves can never be replicated, there are a number of famous finishers throughout history that have been duplicated with great success.
Recently, Dean Ambrose started putting away opponents with a maneuver made famous by Mick Foley, the Double Arm DDT. Since we at WWE.com are a nostalgic bunch, we started thinking about other forgotten finishing moves that could be used again inside the squared circle. These are 10 finishers we want to see brought back, and the Superstars we think should use them.”

“Pro wrestlers have been dishing out cool moves since the early 1900s when Frank Gotch was suplexing dudes. The game has evolved like X-Men since then (ever take a few years off watching wrestling and come back to find guys doing things you never thought possible?), but the most impressive maneuvers have stood the test of time.
Today, every Superstar has awesome moves. Hell, Chris Jericho has 1004 of them. But which are the coolest? We ranked the 50 holds, strikes and dives that would’ve made Mr. McMahon shout, ‘What a maneuver!’ if he was still sitting at the commentary booth.
And what exactly do we mean by coolest? If you were cool you wouldn’t be asking that question.”
