A tweet from Dash Wilder today got me thinking, he mentioned how many variations from the Ace Crusher (Diamond Cutter/RKO ect. For those who don't know) are used today. What are some of the most overused moves in wrestling today beside that? Definitely the running knees in the corner that Almas does. Almost every girl in the Mae Young Classic used it. Superkicks is always a popular one.
A few years back there was an absolute plague of mid-level workers using variations on Roll the Dice / Overdrive / etc, basically just "If you can't come up with a real finish, just do a neckbreaker". That and the endless uranages and Downward Spirals. At least the superkick makes sense — you kick the person in the face, they go down. Easy. The other moves required a diagram to understand what was happening and who was even getting hurt and how.
