The Miz is definitely one of the most popular and decorated WWE Superstars in the history of the company. On top of winning several championships in the company, The Miz also has his own reality show and acted in movies. It seems Chris Jericho isn’t a fan of his finishing move’s name.

The Miz has also main evented WrestleMania once in his career. The Miz’s finishing move The Skull Crushing Finale has been responsible for all his biggest wins.

While speaking to indie sensation Danhausen, Chris Jericho stated that The Miz’s finisher is a rip-off of The Breakdown, a move Jericho used during the early stages of his pro wrestling career. He also stated that the Miz’s finisher has a terrible name.

“If you have seen The Miz’s finishing move, Skull Crushing Finale or something, it is simply a terrible name. You put your hands like a full nelson, and you put your leg in front of his leg, and you kind of push him down. Miz took it and named it Skull Crushing Finale, its original name was The Breakdown. It was a much better name too.”


Titus O’Neal even stated that The Miz has the worst finishing move in the history of pro wrestling. The Miz is currently feeding with Edge on Monday Night RAW, so it remains to be seen how their feud will develop in the coming weeks.
