The problem here is two-fold:
First, a listing of finishing holds just isn't dramatic enough to form an entire show out of. With all the other little WWE collections that have come out before this one, there is no fresh material here (just a different grouping of the same information).
The other problem is that many of the commentators talk about the finishing moves/holds as if they are actually real wrestling holds. I understand the concept of kayfabe, to be sure, but come on! I think we are all past the point of analyzing the "physical purpose" of the hold and instead just enjoy the drama of the whole spectacle.
Thus, "Finishing Moves" is a WWE production that will not stay in my collection and will quickly be forgotten. All its videos and information can be had elsewhere, so to speak.
DDT vs. Rude Awakening Match: Jake Roberts vs. Rick Rude - This was a rare match in itself in that you could only win the match after hitting your finishing move on your opponent while it should be noted that Cheryl Roberts was in Jake's corner while Bobby Heenan wasn't in Rude's. Jake heavily focused on Rude's arm cranking & twisting it to the point where he dragged Rude back into the ring from the apron over the top rope by his arm. Rude would eventually work over Jake's neck by whipping his head into the ropes & using various moves like the chinlock & side headlock with him constantly going after Cheryl on the outside whenever he had an advantage.Read more ›
