The one question that every fan always asks, which are the coolest WWE finishers of all time ?

We kick start our WWE series with the most exciting move of them all, the finisher. WWE finishers are a crucial part in getting a superstar over with the WWE Universe.

A great finisher will immediately make a superstar more popular among the fans than one with an average finishing move.

So let’s look at the some of the coolest WWE finishers of all time!

5) The Pedigree – Triple H


The Pedigree is one of the most iconic WWE moves of all time. The moment you see someone attempting the pedigree you immediately remember Triple H.

The Pedigree is a powerful move that can be done on anyone and more importantly it can be done at anytime. The likes of the Big Show and other super heavyweights have fallen to the pedigree.

Now Seth Rollins has adopted the pedigree from Triple H. While that is a huge stamp of approval from the Game, Rollins will have a lot of work to do to make this move his own.

4) The F5 – Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar will be remembered as one of the greatest performers ever to step into the WWE ring. His displays ever since he has returned in 2013 have showed how amazing an athlete he really is.

The F5 is a move that typifies Lesnar in every way. Strong, powerful and deadly, the F5 has laid waste to countless WWE superstars.

The F5 will always be remembered as the move that ended the Undertaker’s streak at Wrestlemania. As iconic moments and moves goes by, the F5 ticks all the boxes.

3) Swanton Bomb – Jeff Hardy

Jeff Hardy was known as the ultimate risk taker in the WWE. His high risk style made him extremely popular among the WWE fans.

The Swanton Bomb has been used in several highlight reels in the WWE over the years. Hardy has used this move from the top rope, top of a ladder as well as the top of the production unit !

While Hardy was in the WWE, there were not many better sights that watching him climb up to hit the Swanton Bomb on an unsuspecting victim.

2) Stone Cold Stunner – Stone Cold Steve Austin

Arguably the greatest superstar in WWE history, Austin inspired a new generation of WWE fans. His straight talking attitude and supreme confidence in his abilities made him stand out of every other superstar on the roster.

One of the biggest weapons in his arsenal was his iconic finisher, the Stone Cold Stunner. The powerful Stunner has finished countless wrestlers and won several big matches for Austin.

The Stunner has been used by Austin against everyone from the Rock, Triple H, Shawn Micheals etc.

You name the star and Austin has finished him off with the Stone Cold Stunner, one of the coolest WWE finishers of all time !

1) RKO – Randy Orton

While many might believe that the Stunner is the coolest finisher of all time, there is a case to be made for the deadly RKO.

As deadly as it is quick, the RKO is one move that can be done on anyone, anywhere and at any point in the match.

Randy Orton has used this deadly move to finish off the likes of John Cena, Triple H, Batista, Big Show, Chris Jericho and many many more.

If you ever want to get over with the crowd by just using your finisher then the RKO is the move for you.

Fast, stylish and deadly the RKO is my choice as the coolest WWE finisher of all time !
