The Coolest Names For Wrestling Moves/Holds


Recommended Posts

I was thinking about how much cooler Dynamite Kansai's name for her finisher, DIE HARD KANSAI, cooler than the usual name for it, Splash Mountain and it made me think of this topic.  My top five:

Best- DIE HARD KANSAI.  Lamest- Splash Mountain

Best- Suwa's FUCKING FUCKING FUCKING.  Lamest- Spinning Pedigree

Best- Lioness Asuka's K-DRILLER.  Lamest- Greetings From Asbury Park

Best- EVEREST German Suplex. Lamest- Deadlift German Suplex

Best- Tomoko Watanabe's Screwdriver. Lamest- I don't think anybody else does this move.  It's that awesome.

Bret Hart's Sharpshooter was the first that came to mind. Fitting name. Nobody does the move as well as Bret does.

Strong Zero is the best name.

I thought that Die Hard was Splash Mountain from the corner and Kansai used both? Razor's Edge is the lame name.

I thought Splash Mountain was always from the top corner.

Not sure which is best, out of Cop Killa, Vertebreaker or Reverse Gory Special Bomb.

I always liked Tamon Honda's "Dead End" German Suplex.

Doug Williams diving knee drop be being called The Bomb Threat was dope.

Akiyama and the Sterness Dust Alpha and Gamma.

That reminds me of Kensuke Sasaki's STRANGLE HOLD GAMMA, which sounded so much cooler than the STRETCH PLUM.

K-Driller is good, but I'm still partial to the good old Fire Thunder Driver

Last Rites > Roll The Dice > Cross Rhodes

Bull's Poseidon is cooler than Beach Break but they're both cool

Remember that time in the old, non-formatted board where someone asked what move the Spider German was, and someone else misread "move" as "Movie" and started wondering if it starred Ralph Feinnes or something?

Of course, Etsuka Mita's DEATH VALLEY BOMB and DEATH LAKE DRIVER.

Also Japanese use of made up English words:  EXPLOIDER SUPLEX and EMERALD FROZIEN.

Note that NIAGRA DRIVER is also a cooler name than Splash Mountain.
