If I see another moveset that contains the Canadian Destroyer as one of their finishers, I'm going to throw a brick at my computer monitor. It's not that I don't like the move. I think it's neat in its own way. I mean, sure it's contrived, but the simplest moves, the vertical suplex, the Irish whip, half of Rob Van Dam's offense, they're all contrived.
It's the fact that everyone and their mother is beginning to latch onto this move as a finisher. Of course, this is nothing new. E-fedders and real wrestlers too have all tried to gobble up moves that an innovator brings to the table. It was no surprise that Edge and Rhino both took on MURDERDEATHKILL level spears after Goldberg (who himself was a rip-off of Steve Austin, who in turn was a polished up, fit for mainstream cable TV version of the Sandman) made the move more over than Jesus multiplying loaves and fishes. It even happens within the same fed. Kurt Angle was not the first person stateside to link three German suplexes in a row, and he curiously didn't start doing that until Chris Benoit got to the WWF/E with that in his arsenal.
It's normal to imitate the simple moves, and really, with the number of wrestlers in the e-fed circuits, there's definitely going to be some overlappage. However, the Destroyer is not a simple move. It's Petey Williams' signature hold, and to my knowledge, he's the only guy who does it. The same thing happened with Tiger Driver '91 back in the day. Hell, Misawa didn't even break it out for any occasion other than really, really special matches, and you saw people who list it in their regular movesets, not even as finishers.
In a hobby where we try to pride ourselves on being original, there's so much overlappage of really special moves. Burning Hammer, TD '91, Last Ride Powerbomb, Screwdriver... now I know most of this happens unknowingly, and I shouldn't expect wrestler X from ABCW to know what wrestler Y from ZXYW is going to have in his arsenal. In a way, I'm a victim of my own broadness in scope. I see so many feds that I see a lot of the same things from people who may not even know each other.
So I remember that whenever I see the Canadian Destroyer in a moveset... I know it's not a blatant ripoff of another e-fedder, it's just something we all do; borrow moves we like from other wrestlers. That helps me not throw a brick through my monitor.
Yet that brings up another question... how do you choose your moveset? How should you choose your moveset? Well, I'm a wrestling video game geek, so I have my own method. I like to choose 15-20 regular moves and about 3-4 finishers/specialities. I like to vary my moves up, use combos, try to use moves that aren't seen or that may even be creations of mine. But there are always standbys that I plug in. German suplexes, bear hugs for the bigger wrestlers, chin and jaw breakers. It's always fun to be unique, and in the hands of a skilled matchwriter, it's great to see your moveset come to life.
Some people like fewer moves. Some like to list every move they can think of and have 8 page long movesets. I kinda disapprove of both methods. I think having a moveset no smaller than 10 moves but no larger than 25 (and this is normal moves) is the way to go. I also think you should have a good amount of submissions, and not just finisher grade submissions either. I mean, you need to have restholds.
I know the geeks in us don't ever want to have restholds, but facts are facts. They're necessary for the pace of a realistic match, plus they're a brilliant way to shift your PBP (if you so happen to write in that style) away from what can be dry move-for-move and JR/King shock moment treatments and into having them describe storylines and angles in in-character terms. Realistically, your wrestler would gas if there were no restholds in a match, especially in a PPV setting where the matches run longer.
So yeah, there's my treatise on movesets. Keep it simple for the most part, but be sure to add your own flairs and signatures.
And for God's sake, don't use the Canadian Destroyer unless you know no one else in your fed is using it.
