List RulesVote up the worst, most ridiculous finishers in wrestling history.

A finisher move can make or break a professional wrestler's career. A great wrestling finisher looks realistic, is awe-inspiring, and can (usually) be done to any opponent no matter their size. These terrible finishers are anything but.

The worst wrestling finishers are either unrealistic, don't look like they hurt, or are just outright outrageous. Whether it's Santino Marella's ridiculous-looking Cobra Strike or Perry Saturn's awkwardly-named Moss-Covered Three-Handled Family Gradunza, these WWE finishing moves are memorable for all the wrong reasons. But while some of these finishers are simply unbelievable, others look so harmless that you have to wonder why the wrestler held onto their particular move for so long. From Hogan’s Atomic Leg Drop to The Worm, which of these finishers do you think deserves is the worst of all time?

Vote up the worst finishers in WWE history so fans can finally settle the age-old dispute over which wrestler has the worst finishing move.
