The chin lock is one of the most used moves in a WWE ring.

One thing that WWE has been accused of over the years is that the programming has become formulaic. This can be said both from a visual and presentation point of view but also from the position of match structure. A lot of television matches follow the same sort of structure and a lot of the wrestlers use the same sort of moves.

In today article we take at the 5 most overused moves in the WWE right now. They are almost all moves we will probably see on a throwaway edition of Monday Night Raw but that the same time, these moves are used multiple times on the same night by different superstars.


5: Clothesline

Almost every superstar has clothsline in their arsenal

The clothesline is one of the first wrestling moves I remember from watching the former WWF during my childhood. Everyone gave clotheslines back then, and almost everyone uses the clothesline now. The only reason the clothesline hasn’t made it to #1 on this list is because it’s one of the most basic moves in any wrestler’s arsenal.

Very few wrestlers have managed to elevate this basic move into something more but JBL used a modified clothesline, the Clothesline From Hell, as his finished throughout his career and made it look devastating. Currently, IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada uses the Rainmaker Clothesline as his finisher to much fanfare. His clothesline is one of the most protected finishers in New Japan.
