PS Hayes or Arn?

Any others to mention...

An Apter mag in 91 tried to tell us that Jimmy Garvin's DDT had the same "effectiveness rating" that Jake's had, at 92%. [Smile]

I liked Raven's and Dusty's.

I thought Garvin's DDT looked pretty good.

I'll add another vote for Raven's DDT. Always looked good when he did it.

Doesn't get much better than the classic Double A "feint left hand into DDT".

For whatever reason the GIF disappeared when I came back.

Weird.

Liked Bret Hart's version. Liked how he hooked the near side arm

I too like Windham's version a lot. Also liked Foley's double arm DDT, looked kind of ugly but also looked like it would be effective.

I like Drew McIntyre's version of this DDT, the leg swing really adds to the impression of force. Other guys also do the leg swing, but not this well:

A lot of it depended on how the guy took it. Always thought the best looking DDT's were when the guy took a flat face bump, and not the goofy front roll bump.

When Jake started doing it more frequently he positioned his opponent to take it better.

I'm surprised no one has said this yet: Ravishing Rick Rude.

I always thought of him and Jake as two of the first people to use the move as a finisher (whether that's historically true or not). I read once that a promoter almost gave the DDT to Ronnie Garvin instead of Jake...would've made him even more legit tough IMO.
