Professional Wrestling Holds
Professional wrestling is entertaining for all ages, but watching the best professional wrestling holds is the most exciting part. Professional wrestling holds can make opponents cry, cringe and ultimately tap-out. It is the hold that wears down the opponent and makes them quit the match, thus allowing the other wrestler to win the match. Here's a list of 5 of the best professional wrestling holds ever.
- Anaconda Vice. The anaconda vice is one of the most lethal and best professional wrestling holds of all time. In order to effectively perform this hold, the wrestler must make a triangle with his/her arm around the opponents neck and squeeze. The wrestler than grabs the opponents arm and pulls it back, causing pain to the shoulder of his/her opponent.
- Clawhold. The clawhold is one of the scariest professional wrestling holds. The wrestler uses their hand and fingers to grasp the skull of his/her opponent. After wrapping the fingers around the skull, the wrestler squeezes as tight as possible until the opponent can't feel his body. The goal of this hold is to paralyze the opponent for a few seconds.
- Cobra Clutch. The cobra clutch is a professional wrestling hold that involves sitting on the opponents back. Then, the wrestler grabs the chin of his/her opponent from behind and pulls it as far back as possible. This hold causes damage and pain to the opponents neck and spine, thus resulting in them tapping out or passing out.
- Neck Scissors. The neck scissors is a professional wrestling hold that involved wrapping the opponents neck with the legs of the wrestler. The wrestler wraps their feet together and squeezes their thighs around the opponent's neck. This is done for several seconds to several minutes and causes the airway of the opponent to collapse.
- Wrist Lock. The wrist lock is an effective professional wrestling hold. The wrestler grabs ahold of the opponents wrist and twists it around and around in circles, causing pain to the wrist and arm of the opponent. The opponent tries to move but he/she is locked in place by the holding of the wrist. The opponent has no choice but to get out of it or tap out.
