1. Skywalker
2. Reverse STO into turnbuckles
3. Standing Shooting Star Press
4. Flip dive
5. Turnbuckle powerbomb
6. Diving knee strike
7. Peace of Mind

"I used it as a setup move for a while," Rollins said, "but then one day I was at a Live Event and [WWE producer] Jamie Noble saw the move and said, ‘Man, kiddo, why ain't that your finisher? That should be your finisher!' And I was like, ‘OK, cool, no one else is going to do it, so that's it. I'm just going to smash people's faces into the mat and that it'll be it, easy.'"
