Best Submissions

Now since it made some people uppity I won't be using numbers this time. I got bored so figured I'd make another list (and no recapping NXT isn't very appealing).

The Camel Clutch, Iron Sheik-It was the move that launched Hulk Hogan into fame and the Iron Sheik into being one of the best heels ever. Hogan being the first to break out of the Sheik's hold which no one had ever done proved him to be the American hero.

Hell's Gate(Gogoplata), Undertaker-When Undertaker broke out this move like many others I didn't think it fit his character. However I've grown to love it.

Honorable Mention: Triangle Choke, Undertaker

Figure Four Leg Lock, Ric Flair-Probaly the most famous submission hold in America. Ric Flair has been using it throughout his entire wrestling career. It's claimed numerous victims.

Honorable Mention: Inverted Figure Four, Shawn Michaels and Indian Deathlock, Triple H (as his old gimmick)

Ankle Lock, Kurt Angle-The Ankle(sometimes Angle) Lock completely twists the ankle of the opponent. Once locked it you either tap or snap.

Sharpshooter, Bret Hart-If the F4 is the most popular in America the Sharpshooter is definitely a close second.

Honorable Mention-Walls of Jericho/Liontamer Chris Jericho, Boston Crab, Lance Storm, and Texas Cloverleaf, Dean Malenko

Mandible Claw aka Mr.Socko, Cactus Jack/Mankind/Mick Foley/Dude Love-You choke people with a dirty sock nothing more needs to be said there is no other submission like it.

STF-U, John Cena-You can hate on Cena but you have to admit the STF-U is a painful move.

Honorable Mention: Regal Stretch, William Regal

Crippler Crossface, Chris Benoit-If i had to rank these submissions this would be at the top of the list. Easily the most deadly, painful, and destructive finisher in a while. Benoit would come up with many creative reversals. Once locked in at the center of the ring your fate as sealed just ask Triple H.

Comment below on the submissions you think are the best.


  1. Um, the STFU isn't a painful move, because uh, yeah I dunno if anyone has told you this but, wrestling is fake. Now calm down, I know SOME of these moves if applied correctly and using full force would be painful, but the fucking STFU? You know what is painful about the STFU? Watching John Cena use it.

    I like that you talk about these moves as if they are REALLY being applied and used. You're a fucking retard stop writing here.

  2. I guess you're forgeting the time Cena actually made Edge pass out accidentally in a match huh? With STF variations and the Crossface you can't actually choke someone but when you do it's painful. Being a smark and/or troll I wouldn't expect you to understand though. If you are legitimate I can only assume you made that comment because ur frothing at the mouth whenever you see anything positive about Cena.

  3. Cheky, do me a favor and go and find the proof of this incident where Cena made Edge pass out. Considering every time I see Cena use this move and his hands never are around anyones throat, I don't see how someone passes out from this FOR REALLY REAL.


    Starts around 1:05 you can see Edge trying to get him to break the hold and tapping out even though its a ladder match. Reports I've read said Edge states it was the first time he legitimately passed out in his career. Is it true? Who knows why he'd lie about it I have no idea.

  5. Nice. Benoits crossface is a favorite of mine too. In Junior High I was Chris Benoit. The moves are real. And they hurt real too. Get put in the stfu and tell me how it feels.
