Wrestling Finishing Moves: Lost In Translation

23 Apr

"WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! WHAT!" -Kurt Angle mocking the fans

mainThe one thing I love about a finishing move is how much more powerful they become when they are officially labeled "finishing maneuvers".  For example, when Dolph Ziggler hits his superkick (AKA Hashtag Heel), it's does some damage but isn't strong enough to finish off an opponent.  But when Shawn Michaels hits his Sweet Chin Music, you know the referee is counting to 3 right after (assuming you're not The Undertaker or we aren't at Wrestlemania). 

Finishers, just like catchphrases, are something we see every week and couldn't be more familiar with them as wrestling fans.  NOT SO FAST. 

About two months ago I wrote and created "Wrestling Catchphrases: Lost In Translation".  I thought now would be the perfect time to try to do the exact same thing with finishing moves.  Don't ask me why I thought now was the perfect time, just accept it.  Anywho, here's what you have to do:

I translated the wrestling finishers from English to Dutch to French to Italian to English to Chinese (Simplified) to Chinese (Traditional) back to English.  

Your Job: To figure out what wrestler uses what finisher.  Also, make sure to click on the row with the finisher you are answering.

With all that said, Bonne Chance, In bocca al lupo, Veel geluk and, of course, Good Luck!
