Ok - I agree with all of the answers above except Duncum used the sleeper and Monsoon used the airplane spin and splash.

The lariat - Stan Hansen
Polish hammer - Ivan Putski
Kamikazee Clthesline - Mr. Fuji
Flying Hammerlock - George Steele

Stan Stasiak - Heart Punch
Bobby Duncum - Sleeper
Jimmy Snuka - Superfly Splash
Ivan Koloff - Kneedrop from Top Rope (early WWWF) - Russian Neckbreaker (later WWF)
Gorilla Monsoon - Airplane spin/ big splash
The Samoans - Samoan Drop

Beej, I need to mention that I don't think that the Samoans should be in the WWWF contest, since they made their debut in mid to late 1979, after they dropped the second W, I believe.  If I'm correct, I think you should award me bonus points to make up for the dicking I got with my Bulldog Brower answer.

I am very aware that questions after 1979 technically aren't 'WWWF" but we were still smack in the middle of a Bob Backlund title reign that definitely started as a 'WWWF' reign.

The loss to The Iron Sheik is a good cut-off as it ends the reign, is at the end of a year and definitely ushers in a change of direction.

You just don't want to give me any bonus points...at least I should get credit for getting both of Ivan Koloff's WWWF finishers!
