Every professional wrestler needs a few basic things before they get started in the business. A name, some ring gear, an entrance theme, and a finishing move. A special and specific manoeuvre that they will use to finish off their opponents and hopefully bring matches to a close.

Some Superstars have incredible finishers. Ones that will stand the test of time and never be forgotten, maybe even recycled by other wrestlers. Stone Cold's Stunner, Triple H's Pedigree, Brock Lesnar's F5. Just a few incredible finishers that you associate with one person in particular.

However, not everyone is lucky enough to have that luxury. In all fairness, there are only a finite amount of things you can do to another human being inside of a wrestling ring. Thanks to that, we have been left with some pretty terrible finishing moves over the years.

#10 Rikishi

Before slating Rikishi's finishing move it's only fair to point out that one of them wasn't that bad. The Rikishi driver that the Samoan would use actually looked like a pretty devastating move. However, with the ban on piledrivers in WWE in the present day, he wouldn't be able to even use it nowadays.

Okay now on to why we're here. Despite Rikishi undergoing a few transformations during his WWE career, most fans will remember him for the period that he basically wore a giant thong to the ring. During that time, most of his move set involved his derriere.

The Banzai Drop. The Stink Face. Rikishi's unique method of putting his opponents away was to somehow incorporate his ample behind in any way that he could. It's hard not to feel sorry for the countless Superstars that fell victim to the Hall of Famer's infamous Stink Face.
