What is the most protected finishing move ever ? Is there a move that’s been a winning move 100% of the time ?
The closest I can think of is the Jake Roberts DDT. They did bury it a bit at Wrestlemania 8 to put over Undertaker (because Jake was on his way out the door anyway), but that’s the only time I can think of.
Anybody who has wrestled for WWE regularly in the last 20 years has had their finisher kicked out of at least twice a year (Mania and Summerslam)… probably closer to 12 times a year if they worked every pay-per-view.
Has anyone kicked out of the Bonzai Drop?
The Canadian Destroyer
I think Yoko might be the winner. 'Taker did the sit-up from it, but Yoko wasn’t trying to pin him at the time. Pretty tough move to kick out of (kayfabe or shoot) just in a logistical sense.
The more I think about it, I don’t think Undertaker or Hogan kicking out should count…
I don’t remember someone kicking out of the razor’s edge.
The Dudley Boys have talked about how only two people ever have kicked out of the Team 3D - Tanaka in ECW and Chris Saban in TNA. Every other time it’s been broken up by interference.
Anyone kicked out of the People’s Elbow? And that was a terrible finisher as well.
Stone Cold and John Cena have kicked out of it.
Takers’ Hell’s Gate ?
Samoa joe’s muscle buster.
John Cena’s Lightning Fist
Big shows WMD punch.
Ember Moon’s Eclipse and Lacey Evans’ Woman’s Right.
Finger poke of Doom!
That’s the worst finish ever.
No one ever kicked out of it though I’ll give him that haha
Even WCW didn’t kick out of it.
The Choke Slam?
Sweet Chin Music aka a Super Kick
It’s wild to me what used to pass as the biggest finishers back in the day.
The tombstone and the chokeslam have been kicked out of many times.
