Roman Reigns: Superman Punch
While Roman’s Spear certainly deserves mentioning, especially considering the fact that several WWE superstars have used the move better as a finisher, the Spear has proven a more than effective weapon in the past and is more believable as a finisher.
The Superman Punch, however, just seems ludicrous.
The maneuver is essentially just a jumping punch that, for all intents and purposes, seems a bit on the light side compared to strikes performed by some other wrestlers. This move looks even weaker when he uses it to hit multiple wrestlers at once, where it seems that the grappler at the tail end of the move got hit more by a swift breeze than a punch.
The Superman Punch is, simply put, a way for WWE to drive the point home that Roman Reigns is indeed “Superman”, a tactic that leaves a sour taste in more than a few fan’s mouths.
