The Best Moves Ever: Crossface Chicken Wing

It's a simple submission hold, but often times, the simple moves are the best ones. Sweet Chin Music, a simple thrust kick to the face. Stone Cold Stunner, a 3/4 turn headlock flowing into the user sitting down. The crossface chicken wing fits nicely into the simple but deadly finisher. This move actually turned Backlund heel in 1994, when after losing a WWF Championship match to Bret Hart, he snapped and applied it after the bell had already rung.

I couldn't find a good iso vid of the move, so you'll have to bear through the entirety of the squash match against... some jobber. However, you do get the added bonus of listening to Vince McMahon and Randy Savage call the match on the early, early days of RAW.
