* 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.
* Not very common on Wrestling/LuchaUnderground, where most finishers either lack names, or are particularly unique moves (such as [[Wrestling/JohnMorrison Johnny Mundo's]] 'End of the World', a ''split-leg corkscrew moonsault'' or Drago's 'Dragon's Lair' pin) but the most notable example is former champion [[WrestlingMonster Matanza's]] finisher, a simple reverse-spin scoop powerslam which ''nobody'' kicks out of. Its name? ''Wrath of the Gods.''

** [[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

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* One of Rufus R. Jone's special moves was a standard AM football tackle called "The Freight Train".


Added DiffLines:

* June Byers used a fairly straight forward bridging pin as a finishing move calling it, the Byers Bridge.

*** 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".

** A signature move of the five time WWC Dominican Republic Heavyweight Champion and [[CanonDiscontinuity never time]] NWA World Heavyweight Champion Jack Veneno was a punch called Manigueta.



* 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.
