*Now Closed – Updated with Winning Entries*
Wow! Pretty awesome entries we received! Seems like a lot of you would make some great wrestlers just based on your finishing move! Winners, feel free to claim your entry in the comments below and thanks everyone for partcipating!
1. My finishing move would be the “Supafantastic Choppa Throw”. Inspired by Arnold Schwarzenegger in his bodybuilding days, the Supafantastic Choppa Throw involves picking up your opponent by theunderside of his legs and back, spinning him around a minimum of 5 times (360 degrees) and tossing him into the crowd or the nearest table. The substitute name for this move is “The end of the match.”
2. My finishing move would be ‘The enveloping moob’, this involves me getting my opponent in a headlock and flopping my big lardy man-boob onto his forehead and down his face. Darn fool is either going to tap out or suffocate. Whatcha gonna do when these moobs run wild on you?
3. My finishing move is the gamebreaker. It is named this because of what is used to do it. I would get my opponent dazed and then slide out of the ring to pull out a Xbox 360 hidden under it. Then I would climb to the top rope and smash it on their head like an older WcW wrestler did with a guitar. The pin would consist of me sitting on their chest while pretending to play games on XBLA while holding a controller.
4. My finishing move would be called the snowman, id make sure there was a carrot and a fire exstinguisher handy, knock my opponent down till there dazed, grab the exstinguisher, cover them in foam, then slam a carrot into there foamy face to knock them down for the count :).
5. A typical wrestling cliché is for the announcer’s table to be broken by the popular wrestlers. Since my persona is as a Lumberjack Chiropractor, I have created the Lumbar Liquefier. This devastating move takes quite a bit of prep work. While I methodically am beating down my opponents, I am also slowly constructing a new announcer’s table outside of the wrestling ring. Why beat down my opponent with that 2×4 when I can use it to build something?
6. First off my name is El Hombre Loco (The crazy man for you none Spanish folks). I’ve been wresting down in Mexico for 14 years, Ive held just about every championship there is to hold in Mexico everything from tag team to world championships. There is one maneuver I can thank for this and its known as, Final Absoluto Del Mundo (Absolute End of the world), Its hard to explain so im going to try my best. It involves my opponent being dazed on the corner and me being on the top rope with him. I then set it up as to power bomb him off the top rope, but I flip with him 360 degrees, and drive his head into the mat. Now if I don’t win via knock out after that. Then I finish with a standing 360 degree moonsault for the 3 count. No one and I mean nobody has every been able to beat me after I hit them with this maneuver!
7. The Xray Blasting Layover Arch. This move, invented approximately 6 years ago by an underground wrestling phenomenon only known as Captain S, shocked the wrestling world with its incredible ability for a game-ending strategy. The move, short-termed as XBLA, starts with the wrestler blinking each eye-lid furiously thus completely confusing the opponent. This is called the Xray. The wrestler then transitions into the Blasting Layover Arch in which the wrestler awkwardly runs up to the opponent, shifting his weight in various degrees, leaps into the air while twisting their upper torso and landing on their back just inches away from their opponent in a complete miss. The result of this move leaves the opponent in a dazed fixation where the opponent just zones out, leaving the wrestler to get it up and finish him off with furious might of his two thumbs and index fingers.
8. “The Interrogation” After my opponent is almost defeated on the mat, I would first take a ringside seat and place it at one end of the ring. I would then pick up my opponent and lean his body face forwards on the ropes at the opposite side of the ring. Then using the ropes as a slingshot I pull them back and let go so his body flies back into the ring and into the seat. He hits the seat with such force that he is immediately winded. Walking over to him, the crowd roars as a spotlight from above shines on him as I begin “The Interrogation”. I put both of his arms in a lock behind the seat and pull his head as far back as possible. Then, after enough pain has been dealt, I sit him back in the chair for the finale. Pulling both of his legs backwards under the seat and his arms behind the back, I lock them together before kicking the back of the chair and knocking him on his face where I keep his limbs locked for submission.
9. The move: The Retro Wash and Dry Monster Machine. When the opponent has just about had enough and is standing around disoriented, proceed to roll under their legs to make them fall down prone. Follow up with a rapid series of broadside jumps onto the prone opponent’s back (The Washing Bat). Pump up the crowd with a humiliation section: throw the opponent to slide face-first down against all the ropes (The Washboard). Repeat as necessary. Next, grab the opponent’s legs and spin them around, releasing to let them tumble across the ring (The Spin Cycle). Finally, hang the opponent out to dry over the ropes, folded at the waist (The Clothes Line). Inspiration: tonight is laundry night, so it seemed appropriate. The “retro” in the name refers to sections inspired by old-time laundry tools and techniques.
10. ”My finishing move would be “The Rebound Super Slam,” or simply “The Rebound” for short. Named after a key part of the movement of the move, The Rebound is powerful enough to finish off even the mightiest of Avatars. Starting off, I’d use my lighting-quick punches to would wear down my opponent near the ropes until he was dazed, at which point I will taunt them to let them know they are about to lose. Then I would deliver a mighty kick to his midsection, sending him backwards onto the ropes with enough force for him to bounce back at me. Using this momentum to my advantage I would pick him up as if I was delivering a normal bodyslam…but it’s not that simple. Utilizing the leg stength I kicked him with, I would then leap mightily into the air! The momentum of my opponent will allow me to spin multiple times above the ground until I finally slam my opponent into the ring with tremendous force. There is no kicking out after The Rebound.”
