– WWE’s website recently interviewed UFC star Chael Sonnen about the most dangerous submission move in WWE, to promote Sunday’s Hell In a Cell pay-per-view where Randy Orton will face Alberto Del Rio. Sonnen named Del Rio’s cross armbreaker as the most dangerous.

Sonnen, who is a friend of CM Punk, also talked about 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.”

    glad you’re here to tell us these things soulshroude you spelled your own name wrong btw.

    You figure Sonnen would say the triangle choke since he’s been submitted by that one move 4 times.

    A cross armbar if applied correctly will neither hurt, nor endanger your opponent. It simply looks painful from the spectators point of view.
