You're watching an early match of a wrestler who'd eventually become a huge deal, and most of the pieces are there. The physical charisma is there, and you can see flashes of what he'd eventually become. You start to really get into the match, but you're left surprised and deflated when the match ends on some random move, not the legendary finisher that would become forever associated with him. For better or for worse, a wrestlers finishing move is an important part of his persona. It may stretch credulity to imagine that most guys can only reliably pin an opponent after landing an officially-approved, trademark Signature Move, or that 20 years worth of opponents couldn't figure out a way to reliably counter a Sweet Chin Music, but it's integral. It's listed right beneath height, weight, and hometown on the short list of vital stats of a given competitor. Sometimes, though, it takes a while to find something that works. Randy Orton wasn't born throwing RKOs OUTTA NOWHERE, and it took Shawn Michaels nearly a decade to start tuning up the band. This list explores the early years of some of historys most successful wrestlers, and their first draft finishers that they somehow expected to win them championships.
