Best Pro Wrestling Submissions

The Top Ten
1 Sharpshooter

The best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be. No one pulls this submission hold like Bret "The Hitman" Hart!

A national treasure of Canada

It is simple to do

2 Hell's Gate

Triple H had to be taken out of the arena on a stretcher. Wrestling is fake, I don't buy it

Undertaker didn't create this submission. It is a triangle choke

It is the most deadly hold in WWE. It made some people spit blood.

Defintely should be number 1. very real submission. sharpshooter is overrated

3 Figure 4 Leglock

The greatest submission hold in the history of pro wrestling

it's easy to apply, and you can juss sit there watching your enemy SUFFeR!

4 Walls of Jericho

I had a 10 man battle royal with my Cousins, nd I elimineted 6, I eliminated them by this move, THE WALLS OF JERICHO!

its easy to apply and causes pain to opponents

walls of jerico just beats everything

5 Crippler Crossface

Date:October 22 Year:2010, Where:in my classroom, I did this finisher to my enemy, like he was so MAD so he ran after me then I stopped running and he swung his arm to hit me but I maneged to grab it and put him on the floor and applied this move.. and wel... I;m getting sued 4 breaking his arm on november 2... pretty suckish

SO easy to apply, and it could kill ya... so don't get ME MAD!, lolz

6 Sleeper Hold

With the sleeper hold everyone taps to in me league if you apply pressure

A very deadly submission hold to be in

7 Arm Bar

I do the arm bar to win 14 of my 30 matches in my wrestling league the UWE we've been together for 3 monthes and I'm the only undefeated wrestler.

An armlock used in martial arts too, this can also be known as a cross armbreaker, or straight armlock


This move literally squeezes your brain when perfectly locked in.

John Cena has won the most submission matches with the STF

I beat my 21 year old brother with this move and I'm only 9

Its nice john cena

9 Anaconda Vise

Within seconds a person passes out. once it is in, better be by the ropes

10 Khali Vise Grip

The Newcomers

? Cobra Clutch
? Camel Clutch

No one can apply the Camel Clutch like the Iron Sheik.

The Contenders
11 Ankle Lock

The best move ever.

Moves don’t have to be complicated to hurt, this move is a perfect example of what I mean

12 Kimura Lock

I don't know why more people don't use this move in WWE. Guaranteed someone will tap in ten seconds or less, it's that painful

Eat sleep Kimura repeat the deadliest hand lock ever

13 Calf Killer

One of the most... dangerous submission move and it's use by number 1 Wrelter The Phenomenal Aj Styles so this Submission move deserve number 1 Spot

Randy Orton has RKO out of nowhere. AJ has calf killer out of nowhere. Plus it's call calf crusher

Definitely the best submission

He made y2j tap out with this move

14 Lion Tamer

The lion tame ris better than sharpshooter and walls of jericho
just have a look at jericho using lion tamer on Rey Mysterio
It should be No.3

A Boston crab with a knee to the back, very effective

15 The Hart Lock

Come on! This thing is the sharpshooter mixed with hell's gate! It's amazing!

Sharpshooter + Hell’s Gate = Deadly weapon

16 LeBell/Yes/No Lock

Daniel Bryan is one of the most technical wrestlers of all-time. And it's because he perfected this painful submission

If someone has been caught in yes lock, then I don't think he would escape

17 The Muta Lock

The way Muta bridges with it is amazing. It looks like it could snap your neck

18 Figure Eight Leglock
19 Cocina Glitch
20 Brock Lock

Best Lock Made by Brock.

21 The Rings of Saturn
22 Inverted Sharpshooter

Its like a sharp shooter but you don't sit on them

23 Mandible Claw

You take your middle and ring fingers and push down on the soft tissue under the tongue. Just saying it sounds painful

A very bizarre and painful submission hold
