In an article written for The Player’s Tribune, WWE superstar Dolph Ziggler wrote about his Top 5 favorite finishing moves of all time. Randy’s infamous RKO was among the list, read below to see what Dolph had to say:
This list wouldn’t feel complete without the RKO. It’s a great finisher and I’ve taken a few of them. There’s something just special about Randy’s athleticism. He so good at what I’m trying to accomplish that it makes me mad. He has a way of doing something incredibly difficult, while having a look on his face that says I’m thinking about Disneyland right now but I’m still wrestling better than you ever can.
So the RKO is kind of perfect for him because it’s a difficult looking move to pull off that he’s made stand out through art, showmanship and impact. He has many well-documented snake attributes, but he’s also so smooth in the ring that it adds a lot to the RKO. And like a lot of these great finishers, it comes out of nowhere. Like I’m pretty sure he even sells a shirt that says “Out of Nowhere” on it.
