10 WWE Finishers That Don't Make Sense

No one likes a show-off.

Crafting a finisher is a fine art.

Having to look brutal enough to end a contest convincingly, whilst also being simple enough to be performed for the foreseeable future, it is no easy feat to land on this character defining match-ender.

If you scan the annals of WWE finishers that truly elicited a monster pop whenever they were hit, you'll notice that they had two things in common.

One being the ability to be hit at any time and the other being that they were accessible enough to avoid the risk of the owner being hurt every time they performed them.

Randy Orton's RKO, Daniel Bryan's Running Knee and even John Cena's Attitude Adjustment have all demonstrated these characteristics with aplomb.

Yet, we now seem to live in an age of wrestling where the elaborate has overtaken the efficient and some of the current crop of WWE stars have paid the price for not choosing a simpler way of concluding a bout.

Some of these finishers may look impressive, but you can bet your arse that they are too complicated to get over with a live crowd in the long run and some of these stars have already begun to change things up in order to explode the Universe on a more frequent basis.
