Rear Keylock

The Keylock was a favorite hold of Dory Funk Sr. for underneath excapes to top position as
he went on to the Indiana State High School amateur wrestling championship in the winter of
1937. The key lock was legal in amateur wrestling back then because it only caused intense pain
but could not seriously injure someone. Later Dory Funk Sr. was coached by the famed Billy
Thom at Indiana University in 1938.


Rolling Cradle Takedown

This hold is now famous in Japan as Osamu Nishimura's alternative to the Antonio Inoki's Python
hold and the Abdominal Stretch. The effectiveness of the rolling cradle is to gain a pinfall if your
opponent is too stupid to submit to the Python or the Abdominal Stretch.


Cradle Stretch

Even though there is a smile on the face of the Royal Stud, He is trapped and there is not way
out of this hold other than submission or the Wahoo McDaniel special reverse into the Indian
Death Lock which I have not shown yet to the Royal Stud.
