The resume of the worst finisher ever: The FU


It wasnt my WOOO
 Share

Recommended Posts

The FU in all its crappy glory is now been turned into a finisher that no-one is allowed to kick out of. Basically its a rubbish version of a death valley driver or a modified samoan drop. But my point is many people have been pinned after cena has hit them with this move and i am trying to find out how many great superstars have had to job to cena and the worst finisher EVER:

 

 

Shawn Michaels-Taboo Tuesday 2005

 

JBL-Wresemania 21

Kurt Angle-No way out 2005

 

The list goes on feel free to add your own

 

EDIT: Mark TT spoilers at least until Friday please.

Sorry we didn't catch this earlier.

Nah' date=' don't think so...only time I can remember them facing was Vengeance 2003 and Cena was new back then so Taker won[/quote']

 

No they did face later on in a feud, Cena winning a few with undertaker winning a few, but this was before he turned into the Phenom Undertaker i believe.

How is the FU different to a death valley driver?

 

Is it just me? :help

 

pinmepayme.

The DVD emphasizes impact on the neck in kayfabe, and wrestlers take the bumb on their shoulders.

 

The FU is simply an elevated Firemans carry that he falls to his knees with, some times...

 

I have enver been a fan of the FU but I must say i'm glad Cena uses it... i'd hate to see him try a more complex move

 

The Protoplex was a great move (until he has recently destroyed it).

Technically, the person who is performing the move has different motions.

 

With the "sloppy" FU, all Cena does is drop his opponent down from his shoulders.

 

With the current "kneel out" FU, Cena turns towards his opponent as he performs the move, so he almost ends up with their head between his knees.

 

With the Death Valley Driver, the person performing the move actually drops to the side while still holding onto their opponent, so it looks like they're dropping them on their head and shoulders more.

It's subtle, but the FU impact is more onto the back than on the head/neck.

Finishers worse than the F-U

 

 

The Canadian Destroyer

The SSP or the 450 done by Kidman or London because they both become knee drops as opposed to splashes.

Carlito has a friggin DDT and no one cares.

HBK's finisher used to be used mid match in the 80 and early 90s, no one says anything

 

 

Once again, people needlessly bitching about Cena.

None of those are worse than the FU. Its not even a matter of opinion - they just arent. The FU is poor for more reasons than just how it looks.

 

Although I am not a great fan of Sweet Chin Music, I think it can be used for both mid match and as a finisher. Its obvious that its used as a finisher these days as it is pretty much a legendary move.

 

I'd add Hogan's leg drop' date=' to that.[/quote']

 

When Hogan was in his prime this was a decent finisher. It cannot be compared to the FU as both moves are from different eras where Wrestling has drastically changed and moved on.

So you are telling me you like overly contrived and flashy finishers as opposed to a finisher that at least fits somoenes character? Please. The Canadian destoryer is not believeable at all. I know its fake, but the more believeable finishers are the better ones. The Canadian Destroyer is essentially a high spot not done on the ropes. The F-U fits Cena's character. He's very bare bones and just a fighter and his finisher is "Im gonna pick you up and throw you down" the Canadian Destoryer is "Ok you get in this move and we have to have proper timing to make this look good otherwise its a piece of **** move."but to each his own I guess. And if the SSP and the 450 are pulled off PROPERLY, they are better, but Kidman and London CANT DO IT RIGHT!!!!!!!!

 

Why is sweet chin music any better than the F-U. Despite what you might think, the F-U isnt a firemans carry, it starts off as that yes, but then the opponent is elevated and thrown DOWN. Sweet Chin Music is just a KICK. Am I missing something here? What makes it any better? Just because HBK uses it? I bet if HBK had been using the F-U all these years and Cena used Sweet Chin Music it would be "D00D CENA'S FINISHER IS JUST A KICK, WTF IS THAT!!!???"

 

And the mindless Cena bashing continues..........

What would you rather have done to you put across cenas shoulders and then thrown off onto the canvas OR kicked in the head by the heart break kid

and London can do both the SSP and the 450 splash. besides cena sucks he is supposed to be th most face superstar there is and a champion but he gets alot of BOO's and honestly how many people like him

Yes because he's ALWAYS gotten this many boo's:xyx somoene's observant :roll

 

ANd no, Kidman and London can NOT do either of those moves properly. 8-9 times out of 10, they mess it up.

 

I'm not saying HBK's is any worse, but it's not really any better. The only reason people see it as such is because their hero is doing it.
