A few key moments of each of these moves:


Shawn's Sweet Chin Music sent Marty Jannetty through The Barber Shop window, defeated Bret Hart in overtime to win his first World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania XII, defeated Triple H for the World Heavyweight Championship in the very first elimination chamber match, and "ended" Ric Flair's career at WrestleMania XXIV.

Austin's Stone Cold Stunner defeated Jake Roberts to win him the 1996 King of the Ring, won him the WWF Championship from Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania XIV and from The Rock at WrestleMania XV, and put down countless names including Vince McMahon and Donald Trump.

Picking a face lock resulting in a slam over a pure strike just feels right. I love both moves though.

Went with the stunner because SCSA's entire persona was built around it. It's like the Death Star of of wrestling moves. It's not merely a ship with a big weapon, it's a big weapon that had a ship built around it.

I threw a pity vote to Sweet Chin Music, but yeah, I really can't make much of an argument for it over the Stunner. As big of a HBK mark as I am, we're talking about the fucking Stone Cold Stunner here...it deserves to win the whole thing.

HBK's my jam but a lotta people do a variation of the Superkick where almost no one does the Stunner. One of the main reasons I enjoy the move is a technical one. I still have no fucking clue how he landed on or near his tailbone and/or ass cheek night after night after night without rocketing his spine through the top of his head.

I can almost see where Shawn is catching him and slowing his decent to the mat, maybe knocking a bit of mustard off the acceleration, but goddamn he always hits with such a sickening thump. He gets my vote in the hopes that he doesn't need to walk or shit with assistance when he's 60.

I'll be the pedantic guy who points out that Shawn didn't actually kick Marty through the window. He kicked him and then picked up his carcass and threw him through the window.

I'm not even that big a SCSA mark, but it's still almost the default of what I think of as a wrestling finisher and has too many iconic moments not to win. Deserved champion.

Not to mention that it essentially saved the World Wrestling Federation from the brink of bankruptcy/extinction.

The results are brutal in favor of the Stunner. I can't disagree with the outcome - just surprised I guess with the order of magnitude.

I don't think Sweet Chin Music would've beaten the Diamond Cutter either

It was certainly the first contest I found myself voting for in every single poll.

Aside from a hiccup here and there, it was a 10/10 voting tournament.
