Damn Marbles, you must have been super bored to type ALL that up, but nonetheless, it was pretty interesting. I can't believe that for any of the finisher categories that Hurricane's Vertebreaker wasn't on there, of course he hasn't used it for a while and it was retired. I guess I can see why it wasn't on there.

Whatever happened to Lesnar's repeated powerbombs he used to do when he first started? He didn't even let go of the guy, he just kept picking them back up for more..

^he used to due that to guys like hardy, I don't think he can do it against big show. But you're right, haven't seen it in a while. it was kinda cool and with all the guys doing moves in 3 succesion, he might want to bring it back. Also though, I think it's more a move to get over with being real strong, like Bautista doing it might make sense.

And thanks for the list marbs. I actually agree with most of it. Amazing.

Meh, I have no respect for PWI and this proves why. The Spine Splitter is a much more high impact move than F-5, damn they are not even in the same ball park.

They should watch the feds they are talking about, and actually watch the big feds.

What are they thinking? Continue the brand extension? It was a dumb idea to start and it's even dumber to continue it.

Acctually, I have to go with their decision on this one. Whether or not it was a good idea to start with is irrelivant.if they stoped it now then they would be vortually commiting suicide. Think of all the good talent you see from both shows. Now immagine that they droped the brand extention and cut the fat (ex. Crash, Albert, Stiner, ect). What is the problem with that. Their is too much talent that are currently over with the fans or starting to get over. What happens in the end is that the WWE, instead of continuing some of the currently sucssesfull pushes (like the Brian Kendrick push and the Booker T push) and theese guys end up as mid-carders because when given the choice bettween taking a risk and pushing a potentialy good wrestler or just going with angles that worked the first time around 10 years ago they will go for the proven way every time. What they really need to do is give some talent from raw to smackdown to even it up because the deck is stacked in the raw side so high up that it's not even funny.
