Neither, apparently. Most of the examples are 'they do these moves a lot'. It's not even an every match thing, much less a sequence (hell, the Sid example is "he did this in a match once"). Despite the fact that the trope description clearly says it's a sequence. I'll go clean out a few of the obvious ones, but there are several of them I'm suspicious of but not familiar enough with to confidently remove.

Its about sequences, the part above is just talking about the idea that if you do your sequence well you will be all good, not that you should only have five moves but doing five well will let you keep your job rather than having to be adept at all of them.

There are a few examples I'm also suspicious of. I don't think Kelly Kelly ever had a finishing sequence, for example. I just figured she didn't have many signature moves or alternatively just tried to throw them out as quickly as possible since Divas usually only get 3 minutes to wrestle.
