I know Kane, Undertaker, and Lance Archer still do it, but I wouldn't mind seeing more chokeslams.

The Full Nelson Slam is a move I think we should see way more.  It is one of those moves that always looks impressive.

 

Konan sucked, but the Tequila Sunrise was a dope looking submission that someone should bring back.

 

Somehow no one uses the slingshot suplex, or the jackhammer as a finisher, but if Big E ever gets a singles push he should use a slingshot jackhammer as a finisher.

That military press slam into a spinebuster Goldberg used to do was awesome.

 

A good monkey flip would be great to see used more.

 

The regular old school flying head scissor ala Antonio Rocca would be cool to see again.

 

The classic atomic drop Bob Backlund style would be fun also.

I'm a big Short Arm Scissors fan.


Me too. All the intricate arm and leg locks really.
The Indian deathlock is one. I don't know if that gets used these days or not but I loved that one too.

Someone mentioned the Stretch Muffler. Travis Huckabee has been doing a nice spinning variation lately.

I liked when a heel would have the face down then would put his foot of the faces forehead and do a little pirouette. You dont see that much these days but it looked like such a painful and heelish move.

Back rake is one I want to see. I feel like no one does a missile dropkick anymore.

Running knee lift is a good call. Also just a traditional DDT.

DDTs all basically being tornado DDTs in recent year is the result of climate change. (Joke I stole from myself that I tweeted a couple of years ago...)

I loved when Neville started using the Superplex as a finish.

 

Konan sucked, but the Tequila Sunrise was a dope looking submission that someone should bring back.

 

Agreed, The Usos were using it last year during their heel run for awhile.

I think Alexa is the only person who does a standard DDT anymore. I'd also like to see more people other than Natalya do the sharpshooter. Hers isn't very good.

Basically any leg lock that's not a figure four, but Daniel Bryan might be doing that all by himself.

I'd like to see a powerhouse wrestler do a spinning backfist like Aja Kong.

You can see a missile dropkick a guaranteed three or so times in any given modern joshi match. I would love if it no-one did it anymore!

Not sure what it's called but Lou Thesz would do this move where he would drive his elbow into his opponents face by hitting his hand. Usually did it as a heel spot after releasing a headlock. Always looked nasty.

Has anyone else besides Tully Blanchard ever used the slingshot suplex?

-The Ivan Koloff kneedrop from the top rope.
-The Russian friggin' Sickle
-Big Bossman Slam
-The short arm clothesline like Jake Roberts would use before the DDT.
-Gourdbuster
-Heels raking an opponent's eyes on the top rope.
-Any move by a 400+lb wrestler that involved being splashed, stepped on, sat on or avalanched in the corner.

Randy Orton's used it a few times over the years, most recently last year. Feel like someone else has in recent times but blanking on who else.

Gunner Miller uses a great jackhammer as a finisher. His recent match against Dominic Garrini (available on powerbomb.tv) had a great finish around a jackhammer.

One or both of the Revival have done the slingshot suplex several times.
