12. The People's Elbow (High Angle Delayed Elbow Drop)
The Rock's secondary finishing move. A move that has become the most electrifying move in WWE. The attacking wrestler stands at the head of an opponent laying on their back, runs to the left and as they are coming back, jumps over the opponent's head and runs to the right side of the ring, followed up by a delayed high angle elbow drop. This move has put away superstars like Kurt Angle, Triple H, Hulk Hogan, Undertaker and Big Show.
11. Brogue Kick (Bicycle Kick)
This move was originally used by A-Train, now known as Lord Tensai back in his early days in WWE. It is now used by Sheamus and was renamed the Brogue Kick. It involves the attacking wrestler jumping in the air with both feet kicking forward in a pedalling motion with normally, the right foot connecting to the opponent's face.

Short for Stepover Toehold Facelock. A move made famous my Lou Thez and is now being used by John Cena. It involves the attacker grabbing one of the legs, mostly the left leg of an opponent laying on their front and stepping over and placing the opponent's ankle or calf between the attacker's thighs.

9. Attitude Adjustment (Fireman's Carry into a Powerslam)
This is John Cena's finisher, which he debuted in 2003 in a rivalry with Brock Lesnar. Lesnar had his finisher, the F5 which was Spinning Fireman's Carry Facebuster. So Cena debuted his finisher, a Fireman's Carry Powerslam and named it the F-U. It involves, picking the opponent up in a Fireman's Carry position. The attacker then wraps his hand and wrist around the opponent's head and grabs the opponent's thigh with the other hand and flips the opponent over the attacker's head and slams them down on the mat. There are multiple ways of doing the move. First, the wrestler can either drop on their knees or perform a sitdown variation of the move. Or the attacker may simply slam the opponent down while standing. It can be effective and has put away a lot of superstars that have taken the move such as Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Randy Orton, Batista, Edge, Chris Jericho, Undertaker, Kane, Christian, The Miz, Wade Barrett, Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater, David Otunga, CM Punk and Brock Lesnar.
