What is the greatest finishing move in pro wrestling history?

WWE is answering that question in an upcoming DVD release counting down the top 50 finishers of all time. The video will hit shelves on Aug. 21, 2012.

But you know how we're such blithering marks for lists like this, Cagesiders. We couldn't wait to take a gander at the goods and let you fine folks dissect it and tear it to shreds.

And after seeing it, believe me, that's exactly what you're going to want to do. Here's your teaser before you take the jump and see the full list for yourself -- I agree with number one and then I absolutely despise the entire rest of the list.

Sufficiently excited to see it? Good.
