10 WWE Superstars Who Hated Their Own Moves

Familiarity breeds contempt.

A wrestler's move set is a deeply personal collection of specifically chosen manoeuvres which are designed to get their distinct characters over and lean into their strengths.

An intelligent star picks a variety of moves which they can perform night after night without any real risk of injury or c*cking them up when the spotlight is on them.

Yet, some performers are burdened with moves (or even just a move's name) which they don't feel fully comfortable using and are forced to continually execute them because that's what the fans or the company expect of them.

That's just one of the many reasons why a star can end up hating their own arsenal in the end.

Some grow to detest the feeling of being overshadowed by a move's former owner and others simply end up despising how dumb they look when performing a finisher which isn't suited to them.

There's a gluttony of moves to choose from when equipping yourself as a professional wrestler. So, it's just a shame that this lot picked a bunch which were clearly not the best choice for them in hindsight.

10. Terri Runnels - Bronco Buster

Seth Rollins Pedigree

When Terri Runnels first appeared on WWF television back in 1996, she performed under the name Marlena as real-life husband Dustin 'Goldust' Runnels' manager.

However, once WWF went into full 'Attitude' mode a couple of years later, Runnels was tasked with wearing a skimpy outfit and performing a Bronco Buster on her rivals.

When Runnels was recently reminded of this period after a fan posted a video on Twitter of the former WWE employee performing the move on Jerry Lawler, she replied to the tweet by saying that she 'HATED DOING THOSE!'

It's obvious that this sort of thing was done in order to please the type of audience the company were aimed at back then. Looking back, though, you can't help but cringe at the idea of women being made to perform moves on middle-aged men which involved them slamming their crotches into their faces.

Thankfully, the company has completely moved away from blatantly objectifying the women who perform under the WWE banner (well, mostly) and the likes of Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch will definitely not be asked to perform moves like this on grinning male colleagues ever again.
