Do Boston Crab Wrestling Move
So how do you do the Boston Crab wrestling move? It's actually strikingly similar to the Sharpshooter, but the mechanics of setting it up are simpler and easier for novices to learn. To do the Boston Crab properly, follow these steps:
- Put your opponent on his back, preferably knocked out or hurt. This prevents him from defending himself as the move is being executed. Doing a powerslam, DDT or a clothesline can knock the opponent into the right position.
- Take the opponent's legs and turn him onto his stomach. This will put you in the perfect position to initiate and lock this move. The opponent may attempt to kick you; kicking or punching him can subdue him for a little while as you do the move. Initiating an elbow drop can also knock out the opponent long enough to start the Boston Crab.
- Tuck the end of his legs between your armpits for good leverage. This will balance out the move as you lean back-great for staying steady. Your arms should be wrapped around his legs. Avoid using your hands to keep the legs steady-using your hands can make it easier for the opponent to escape.
- Lean back into the opponent's back and squat. Your knees should be completely bent, so that your buttocks are hovering just above the opponent. Keep the legs locked. This will lock the move into place, causing serious pain in the opponent's back and spine.
