Hulk Hogan was always technically dodgy, but then again he looked pretty sound compared to ultimate warrior! (Does anyone remember that hogan vs warrior PPV main event from WCW, it stank!).

........................ Hulk Hogan attempting still attempting to wrestle
I'd like to publicly admit my incorrectness when I said in an earlier post that I didn't think CM Punk would get over with real ECW fans, rubbish greyhound. Also, I'd like to publicly express my absolute joy that Jeff Hardy is coming back, all we need now is the Rock, Brock Lesnar, Jericho, Benoit and the world will be alright again. Does anyone have any ideas why WWE doesn't do any really exciting big rivalries anymore (I'm thinking of stone cold getting run over as a prime example). Oh, and thank GOD ECW FINALLY did something resembling the old ECW in the test vs tommy dreamer match at hammerstein ballroom, I'm referring to the use of a barb wire covered board.
By the way, does anyone have a link for the mick foley vs terry funk death matches? I've never seen them!

I used to think the tombstone was great, that was until I saw Owen break Austins neck. Also it looks too fake, its obvious that their head never hits the floor.
The Pedigree is a great move as it looks better then the tombstone.
The people's elbow always amused me with the waving of arms and the removal of elbow pads.
My favourite however is the ankle lock when performed by Ken shamrock. The grapevine is a great addition by Angle but the move belongs to Shamrock. It has the most credibility as the move could do serious damage if applied properly like he did in the UFC.
Even though I never watched it while he was in it Shamrock is one of my favourites and I think he should have won the WWF title during his short Professional wrestling career

My favourite finisher - hard to call but I'm going to say a whacky one and say Jimmy Superfly Snuka!
Here's an interesting question - who do resmeble most in wrestling lookswise, fighting style etc.?
For looks it would probably be Marty Janetti with the fighting style of 'old school' Crush when he was a solo wrestler (when he was actually decent).
Whilst S J Snuka was great, his finishing move was a bit standard, kinda like a frog splash without the 'frog' component. But that thing he did with his hands was very cool.
All the old finishers were pretty boring, in hindsight. Pre Bret Hart, Undertaker, Mr Perfect, HBK etc, the final moves were glorified versions of textbook moves e.g. Ultimate Warrior's splash, Rick Rude's 'Rude awakening' sleeper, Hogan Leg Drop. However they were all great characters, which is exemplified by the way their finishers were received by the fans. These days the finishing moves need to be big and extravagent to compensate for the poor quality of character...e.g Kane, Big Show, Brock Lesnar.
I'd like to think I'm a bit like Benoit in terms of wrestling style- not facial appearance...I have full set of teeth . I'm probably of a similar height also.
EDIT: In terms of old school, I reckon I'm Shawn Michaels- from his 'Rockers' days, not HBK.

I think the most implausible finisher (ok, I know I'm changing the subject somewhat) is the unprettier or kane's tombstone cos he's absolutely AWFUL at delivering it.
Petey williams finisher is bloomin good, I loved CM punk's finisher he did off the top rope when he was in ROH and CZW, kinda like a pedigree from the top rope. My fave finisher is probably brock lesnar's F5, visually quite spectacular.
Also, thank heaven for jeff hardy! that is all.
