Your Two Cents: Favorite Submission Holds

“Your Two Cents” is our interactive feature where we gauge the opinions of our Twitter and Facebook followers on different discussions in women’s wrestling.

This week, we’re asking this: AJ Lee has been using her Black Widow submission a lot lately, so we want to know: what is your favorite submission hold in women’s wrestling? We’ve read your responses on our social media pages and picked some of the best submissions to highlight here on the website. As always, you can join the debate by leaving your comments!

@ATweetFromScott | I really liked Michelle McCool‘s MADT (Make a Diva Tap), going from a simple roll through into a great heel hook. [WATCH]
@BeliEVErinEve | My favorite submission move has got to be Paige‘s Cloverleaf submission. [WATCH]
Carlton Bartley | AJ’s “Black Widow” and Gail Kim‘s version of the Octopus Hold, “Christo”. I also like Beth Phoenix‘s “Glam Slam Stretch”. When she put that submission move on Melina in their “I Quit” at One Night Stand 2008, MY GOODNESS, she almost broke her in HALF! [WATCH – @ 8:20]
Chris Bohn | AJ’s Black Widow is my favorite at the moment. It just looks painful. [WATCH]
@DavidWayneConn | Lita‘s submission choke she used on Trish Stratus and Molly Holly! [WATCH – @ 1:15]
@FearlessRiOT | I really liked that Pin-Up Strong submission Natalya & Beth Phoenix came up with in 2011. I wouldn’t mind Nattie bringing it back. [WATCH – @ 3:00]
@KatieFJ07 | I loved Eve Torres‘s Triangle Choke! Loved how she brought out her Jiu Jitsu background. [WATCH]
@lewisschofield | I wouldn’t mind seeing Kaitlyn use that submission she used a year or so back. The Lotus Lock I think it was called? [WATCH]
Macoy Vicera | Candice Michelle‘s Figure Four Leg Lock over the top rope.. Well, I guess they will consider it as an illegal move instead of a submission move. It looks so original and painful lol! [WATCH]
@mrmanufactured | I always loved Cheerleader Melissa‘s Kondo Clutch. [WATCH – @ 1:50]
Nikolas Dombkowski | Maxine‘s Dragon Sleeper with body scissors [WATCH]
@pikatrick | it’s gotta be Gail Kim’s Christo/Flying Dragon. I remember the first time she bust out that move on Victoria. I was in awe. [WATCH]
@pitts2008 | Ivelisse Velez‘s submission finisher. She used it in the Knockouts Gut Check match against Lei’D Tapa. [WATCH – @ 1:15]
@thekiddtrae | For me it’s obviously Melina’s California Dreams! [WATCH]

And now we turn it over to you…
