One move to three-count: Iconic WWE finishing moves

WWE wrestlers are known for their in-ring athleticism as well as their on-mic prowess.

But one thing, which makes a wrestler stand apart from the rest is his or her finishing move.

Some moves are way more effective than the others, while others might be more popular.

In this article, we take a look at 5 such iconic finishing moves of all time.

In context

One move to three-count: Iconic WWE finishing moves
The Beast Incarnate does it in style

F5

The Beast Incarnate does it in style

Brock Lesnar has been one of the toughest wrestlers in the history of professional wrestling.

Few wrestlers have been able to match his strength and athleticism, and also his finishing move, the F5.

The F5 is a simple maneuver but is hugely effective and painful.

Lesnar picks his opponent on his shoulders and then spins them around, while throwing them to the ground.

Pedigree

The Cerebral Assassin's iconic finisher

Pedigree is used nowadays by Seth Rollins, but the one wrestler whom we associate this move with is Triple-H.

He has been laying opponents out cold with the 'Pedigree' for over 20 years now.

In this move, Hunter takes his opponent's head between his legs, crossing his arms behind the opponent's back and slamming him face-first on the mat.

That hurts!

The most electrifying move in all of sports entertainment

The Rock Bottom makes this list not because of its effectiveness, but because it is one of the most popular moves in all of professional wrestling.

Combined with the People's Elbow, The Rock has used this move to take down the toughest of opponents throughout his career.

He also used this famous finishing move in the movie 'Furious 7'.

The toughest wrestler with the quickest finishing move.

The Stone Cold Stunner is surely the most iconic of all.

Easy, quick and effective, the Texas Rattlesnake has used his finisher on anyone and everyone, from the owner of WWE to USA President, to women, his opponents and everyone in between.

Anytime someone is in his proximity, they fear a kick to the gut followed by being laid out in 2 seconds flat.
