Hey, Scott here's the Super Sunday match between Hulk Hogan and Nick

believe that Verne had the guts to do another false finish after all
this build-up. Oh well hope people enjoy it:

This might seem like a silly question, but I've always wondered what submission moves actually hurt those involved? Obviously the ankle lock can easily be faked, but growing up I had my brother do the Sharpshooter on several occasions and it always hurt terribly. Now, obviously you can adjust for that, but was just curious which moves you know tend to be painful?
Hi Scott –
While watching Raw last night, I was compelled to see if Daniel Bryan would tap out to the STF when Cena had it locked in. That got me thinking further about submission wins.
While I love a tap out as it clearly defines who won the match, sometimes it can be either too quick or too slow – leading to a unsatisfying finish. Sometimes it seems like the victim taps out before the hold is even locked in, therefore eliminating some of the "will he or won't he?" aspect of the move. And since a submission victory is rare in a main event match, usually a submission move leads to a dramatic escape.
My question to you is: what are some of the best match endings involving a submission you can think of? Clearly the Benoit/Michaels/HHH Wrestlemania match has to be near the top, but what else?
