    Someone should put JR's "Good God Almighty, that killed Him!" over this clip

    Done well, it's a great spot... not a real good finisher. Was disappointed Roman didn't bust out the Acid Reigns on Big Match John.

    Stroke is stupid because there's no reason the guy can't break his fall. Skull-crushing Finale, I always liked from when I first saw Brian Christopher and Lenny Lane using it in the late 90s. Popped when Jericho was using it as The Breakdown.

    Also, shining wizard/Kinshasa/similar moves end up looking like a running dick to the face half the time.

    Kick/knee moves either look like legit death or legit horse shit with no middle ground.

    I think a big guy could make the skull crushing finale look painful but Jericho and Miz lack the presence for it.

    Joey Ryan's dick-plex needs a mention.

    Nothing involving Joey Ryan ever needs a mention.

    He that shall not be named is an insult to stupidity, retardation, fragglism, and even...dare I say it...an insult to Canada!

    I always saw it as a watered down Death Valley Driver, but it totally is just a standing Fireman's Carry lol.

    I was thinking of this. Looks cool at first, but requires way too much willing participation by the target. A lot like when Little Spike Dudley would always get those miraculous off the top-rope bulldogs on the big guys in ECW. It goes too far to suspend my disbelief.

    Yeah it is completely stupid.

    How about when Shane McMahon just runs in and beats up the entire roster whilst doing that stupid dance? LMFAO

    Seeing him dominate guys like Kane is absurd. Shane isn't even a wrestler.

    All he does is jump off high things onto crash mats and cardboard.

    Sorry for the rant :D

    End of Days is actually a fairly good finisher, it uses your opponents momentum against them and you plant their face into the mat. If Baron Corbin could perform it better it wouldnt looks so sloppy.

    That looks like a tombstone that's even more likely to break a neck
