It's been 9 months since WWE '12 was released. Since then, a lot of WWE's wrestlers have changed their repertoire, including their signature moves. I thought that I'd start a list going, having diligently watched WWE programming this year, to make things as current as possible. For example, Randy Orton does not do the stomps and punt anymore, and has not for over a year.

And hopefully people can add their own ideas and contributions...corrections...

alot of these are off. Cena still uses the STF as a finsher Orton rarley does a super RKO, Tyson Kidd does the Hells Gate as a finsher aka the Hart Lock. Sheamus Does White Noise as a signature to set up for the Brouge Kick. Ziggler did that avalanche facebuster once and he hasn't done it since then.

Twice, one on SmackDown and one at No Way Out, just had to point that out.

Ziggler did the top-rope X-Factor three times actually. One on RAW, one on Sheamus and on PPV...and at a house show I went to in May. I made that a finisher because he hasn't submitted anybody with his sleeper hold w/ body-scissors once this entire year and the facebuster has a nice snap.

You're definitely right about Tyson Kidd. I haven't watched enough of his matches from 2012.


BTW, the Celtic Cross IS White Noise...exactly.

Ziggler did it in a house show? He did it on SmackDown I'm pretty sure, not Raw. If you don't want sleeper as his finisher than don't replace it with something he's never finished off a match with, that's why they're called finishers, put an alternate version of the first move like Da Shout Out for instance, it looks just like a clothesline counter into a Zig Zag.

I added Antonio Cesario, Brodus Clay and Tensai and made some adjustments after watching No Way Out, Extreme Rules and the last three RAWs.

Added Hunico and Ryback. And might I say, given what little options there are in Create A Finisher, I think my Shell-Shocked looks pretty damn good!

I'd love for more people to add to the thread! Maybe somebody can come up with a better tirl-a-whirl facebuster (La Mistica) for Sin Cara

Alex Riley shouldn't have DDT 10 as his sig, change that to Edgecution 1.

Big Show has only used the Camel Clutch once this year but not as a finisher, change to Right Hamd Hook because Show does it when a grounded opp is getting up.

Give Punk Chick Kick 2 or any roundhouse since he normally smacks his opp across the face with one before G.T.S.

Put Alabama Slam in Cody's Grapples and replace that with Diving Kick because it looks just like his Disaster Kick and he even sometimes does it from the top rope.

Please change Dolph's second finisher, make it Da Shout Out or something he's actually finished a match off with.

I'd give Slater the Sleeper Slam as finisher since it was recently used, and put Neckbreaker 9 and Spinebuster 5 as his sigs.

Jack Swagger has never used R W and B Thunder Bomb since 2008, change that to Body Splash 3 for a secong Swagger Bomb.

I understand what you did with Cena and I'm fine with that, can you make Crossface an alt. to STF since he sometimes uses that instead?

Replace Super RKO with Tower of London because your CAF looks way to fast.

And Randy still uses stomps and also consider DDT 14 as a sig.

Sin Cara should have Hurricanrana 3 and Christo as sigs. And Cara never uses tilt-a-whirl small packages as a finisher, replace it with the in-game armbar and make his secondart Hurricanrana DDT.

Give Kidd Over Castle, looks better. (Also, I think you should fix that you've put Triangle Hold twice.

Ryder gasn't used the hurricanrana since TLC or the Saving Grace DDT since 2008, replace the Hurricanrana with Hangman's Neckbreaker and Saving Grace with Diving Leg Lariat 2.

For more ideas, look at my finisher list.
