** [[Wrestling/MickFoley Mick Foley]] and his Double Arm DDT. Wrestling/DeanAmbrose uses the same move as well - it's just called "Dirty Deeds." (And it was [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness originally a headlock driver.]]

** As Daniel Bryan, he has a Wrestling/{{KENTA|Kobayashi}} esque flying knee, which is an interesting aversion, as it's unofficially known as the "Knee +," but the announcers just call it the flying knee. However, he has used it to beat Wrestling/JohnCena, Wrestling/TripleH, and to set up Wrestling/{{Batista}} for the Yes Lock (a Crossface and a more traditional example).

* Defied with Wrestling/DeanAmbrose, who has been using a headlock driver as a finisher more or less since debuting as part of Wrestling/TheShield, and as of March 2014 it STILL doesn't have a name, official or unofficial. It was FINALLY given a name on the March 28th Smackdown: Dirty Deeds. Sometime after Summerslam 2014, Ambrose's finisher became a double underhook DDT, but it retained the Dirty Deeds name

* World of STARDOM Champion Kairi Hojo could keep her challengers down for three with a jackknife hold, or rather, a Jack ''[[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Sparrow]]'' Knife hold.

* Perhaps the most triumphant example: a belly to belly suplex is one of the most basic holds/throws a wrestler can do, showing up in the movelists of all sorts of wrestlers. Wrestling/{{Bayley}}, on the other hand, can use it as a finisher because it's a BAYLEY TO BELLY (suplex)![[note]]Though she does sometimes do it off the top rope, an avalanche belly/Bayley to belly suplex, when she needs an extra bit of oommph.[[/note]]

** Wrestling/DramaticDreamTeam saw Jet Shogo use a punch as a finishing move. Naturally, it was called the JET Punch.



* An accidental example, half by {{Engrish}} and half by Wrestling/JoeyStyles not grasping the concept of JapaneseRanguage, resulted in him calling a basic rolling elbow from Wrestling/MasatoTanaka as the "Roaring Elbow" in Wrestling/{{ECW}}. Of course, the rolling elbow was already a seen as a finishing move thanks to legends like Wrestling/MitsuharuMisawa.

*** To be more fair, a straight punch can be one of the most devastating strikes there is. It's just not as showy as most finishers.
**** Ron Garvin made it work for many years in the Crockett NWA.
***** And proved to be an example, because he was the "Hands of Stone".

* The Atomic Legdrop. HulkHogan's legdrop is a finishing move as opposed to almost every other leg drop you will see (including the "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin over the top]]" variant) because he gets a running start, and of course, it has a cool sounding name. At King Of The Ring 1993, Yokozuna beat the Hulkster for the WWF Championship with that very same move. (Lets face it, anything that involves [[TheGiant YOKOZUNA]] dropping his weight on top of somebody will be powerful.)

* A similar case with Wrestling/{{R|on Killings}}-Truth: he briefly had one of his signature moves, a leaping spinning elbow, become a finisher because he gave it a name, the Lie Detector. Unlike Edge, he eventually stopped using it as a finisher.

* Speaking of Sheamus, the Brogue Kick (a standing scissor kick to the face) has become his Finisher, replacing the Celtic Cross (Crucifix Powerbomb). Though he sometimes also uses White Noise (The Kryptonite Krunch, technically known as a 'Over the shoulder back-to-belly piledriver.').

*** The chokeslam is the go-to finish for most wrestlers of TheGiant archetype, as it's an impressive-looking move that is deceptively simple to execute. Which is why it was also a deadly finisher for Wrestling/AlPoling and The Wall.

In the older days of wrestling, finishing moves were pretty much anything not a headlock. Wrestling/ShawnMichaels used a superkick called Sweet Chin Music for a finishing move. Other wrestlers today use a superkick as a transitional, or a set-up, move. None of them will EVER get a pinfall with it... but Shawn can, because he's given it a Name of Power.
