I dont watch alot of pro wrestling but I have noticed more and more submission moves being used. I heard about someone doing a triangle choke in the WWE, in a ps2 game i used to play chris benoit did an armbar from a mount position and when WWE was on a german sports channel last night (dont ask) i saw the undertaker do something that looked alot like a messed up gogoplata and choked his oponent out. On Nuts tv (a low budget british tv channel I watch now and then) they have started showing "Bushido: the way of the warrior" which they always describe as some sort of mma. In reality its a prowrestling show (hard style?), UWFi. Almost every show features takada and some other names I recognise from mma. I believe the show was from the early 90s yet these guys were all using loads of different submissions although under different names. Ex. sleeper hold - rnc, cross lock - armbar etc. So clearly realistic submissions have always been a part of pro-wrestling. It seems to me they were left out of american pro-wrestling (WWE) but are slowly returning as mma becomes more popular. So, is it a good thing or a bad thing? Does it educate people on submissions or does make wrestling fans turn up at bjj classes and try to heel hook people? Do you think submissions in pro-wrestling are a desperate attempt to win fans back over who have switched to mma? Does it legitamise pro-wrestling? Or has it just been there all along?
