WWE.com’s Joey Styles is featuring an interview with current UFC fighter Chael Sonnen who talks about the most dangerous submission move in WWE – Alberto Del Rio’s Cross Armbreaker. Sonnen, who is a big wrestling fan, talks about the use of other submissions in WWE.
“Punk is a submission whiz who trains with former UFC fighter, Shonie Carter in Chicago. Punk even has a gym in his basement now. He likes the Anaconda Vise. The Undertaker uses the gogoplata [known to WWE fans as Hell’s Gate]. The Figure-Four Leglock will crush a knee, but it is very intricate and difficult to set up. The standing Abdominal Stretch is applied on the ground in MMA and called a Twister. Again, it’s very difficult to set up, but brutal to be in. Alberto’s Cross Armbreaker is known as an armbar in MMA and it is a staple of every fighter’s repertoire.”
