Sometimes you need to wreck people. There’s something cool about a finisher, but there’s something that can be extra special about a tag team finisher. It’s just cool to see two people doing something together that makes it look extra devastating. You have the Doomsday Device and the 3D as two of the best known finishers, but what about some from a place like NXT?
Count em count em count em down.
WWE has released a new video looking at the Top Five Coolest NXT Tag Team Finishing Moves. The list is exactly what it sounds like with five of the most dominant finishing moves that NXT’s tag teams have ever seen. While NXT may not seem to be the longest running organization of all time but the titles have been around for about five and a half years now with sixteen different reigns, giving the list a few options to pick from.
Opinion: I know there aren’t a lot to pick from on the list but the top two were about the only ways you could have gone. The Shatter Machine was the dominant finisher of the most successful tag team in NXT history and there was no other option at the top. I’m glad they didn’t put the Last Chapter in there because really…it’s just not that good. A 3D into a Codebreaker is a little better than a Russian suplex/clothesline combination you know?
