The Best Moves Ever: Burning Lariat

Whenever someone says "Pfft, the clothesline is such a bullshit finish," I roll my eyes a little and think of spamming whatever social media site I have open on a tab at the moment with some of the most brutal-looking lariats I can find. The n00bs recall JBL's Clothesline from Hell. The old-timers bring up Stan Hansen's Western Lariat. Indie fanatics look to Nigel McGuinnness' Jawbreaker Lariat. All of them are fine choices, but one cannot leave Kenta Kobashi's Burning Lariat out of the conversation. On the right day, it's probably my favorite version of the lariat.
