Ouch! That Hurts!

Wrestling holds are used to immobilize or make the opponent submit. However, some holds can take very awkward formats, twisting and spreading limbs, bending neck and torso into unnatural positions. Looking at some examples in the slide show, it is hard to imagine how one wrestler managed to get the hold applied.

Mostly used in professional and fantasy wrestling, they demonstrate the skills which women wrestlers have achieved. Some wrestling managers and art creators have become specialized in these fancy holds - like Wrestling Lounge, Merlin Art and STJ, and we fans appreciate that.

You may have some fun guessing the name of each hold shown in the slide show.
