Let’s Say Nice Things About... That One Finisher You Hate

Now more than ever, the world needs a good dose of positivity. We here at Cageside Seats will do our small part to bring that positivity on a daily basis. Throughout the entirety of 2017, we’ll say something nice about wrestling and everything around it, past, present, and future.

As a reminder, only positive comments are allowed here. No negative comments, no troll comments, no back-handed compliments. None of that here. You have the rest of the site for that. Any comments that are not in the spirit of this feature will be flagged, deleted, and posters of said comments may be subjected to a ban.

Got this idea on my Twitter gimmick from Total Divas (and Total Bellas) reviewer Caitlyn:

@notoriouseddie can we do a Lets Say... for "your favorite submission (or finisher)"

of course most will be like 'it looks cool' but I always like discussion of finishers or submissions

I like the idea, but let’s put a degree of difficulty on it. Every wrestling fan has seen that one finisher or submission that makes them cringe or go into a rage. Today, I’m gonna challenge you to say something nice about it. Today’s subject: that one finisher or submission hold you hate.

For me, that one finisher is John Cena’s STF. It’s not a proper STF. It barely qualifies as an STS. I get it. But I can give two positives on it: (1) it doesn’t look like a choke, and making it look like a choke is probably a bad look in this wrestling climate. (2) You appreciate it so much more when you see a proper one done. You know, like when John’s future wifey does it.

Your turn. Say something nice about that one finisher or submission you hate.

Got a suggestion for a future “Let’s Say Nice Things About...”? Hit me up on the Twitter gimmick @notoriouseddie. I may not always respond, but I will read it.
