Trust me, the classic submission move actually hurts. In the first part of a series of articles exploring some of the most iconic moves in the business, I would like to present you the history of the figure four leglock or simply the figure four. I don't think it will be necessary to explain the mechanics of the move, since all wrestling fans have already seen it in action. So, what I propose is to explore the wrestlers who used the move to make it so famous.
We are led to believe that once this move is applied, the wrestler who is trapped in it is experiencing an incredible amount of pain. The wrestler who is trapped in the figure-four will have his right leg bent at the knee, laid perpendicular, and placed on top of the left leg, which is straight. The straight leg of the opponent will be kept straight because of how it is positioned in the hold.
