He is a featured guest in wrestling discussions on BBC Radio and Sirius Hardcore Sports Radio. our editorial process Eric Cohen Updated March 18, 2017 Every WWE Superstar has a finishing maneuver that usually results in victory. WWE Home Video has created a countdown of these moves and then selected a variety of matches featuring the Superstars that had their moves listed. Review and Recommendation Format of the DVD: This set is available as both a 2-disc Blu-ray set and a 3-disc DVD set. This review is for the 3-disc DVD set. Disc one features a countdown of 50 greatest finishing moves while discs two and three feature 16 matches. Packaging Issue: There is no chapter listing provided in this set. While a partial listing would make sense if WWE Home Video wanted to keep the packaging spoiler free, it is still inexcusable not to have a chapter listing for the last two discs in the set. Rating: This set is rated TV-PG. The List: If you want to see the list before buying this DVD, I have put it on the following page. Unlike the joke of a list WWE Home Video made for The Top 50 Superstars of All Time, this one makes sense and can be used in a serious debate on the topic. Thoughts on Disc One: I hated it. Watching a variation of the same thing 50 times gets tedious very quickly. Each segment features the move shown at least a dozen times with a few Superstars saying how much they admired the move and at least one person giving a kayfabe explanation for the move being devastating. I really wish they would change up these styles of discs. Instead of having a panel say variations of the same thing over and over again, put them all together in a room and have a great debate on the topic, similar to the Legends of Wrestling set that came out a few years ago. Match Selections on Discs Two and Three: I'm convinced that the producers of this set stopped caring after disc two and decided for disc three and the Blu-ray extras to just find random multi-man matches so they could include as many big names on this set as possible. Overall Recommendation: This is a rare dud for a multi-disc set from WWE Home Video. The main programming is massively repetitive and there are no matches on this disc that you really need to spend money on. If you are a fan of countdowns, I recommend checking out OMG! instead of this set.
