Top 25 most devastating submission holds

#25 Gory Special

During the peak of his fame in the 1950s, Gory Guerrero was one of the most hated men in all of Mexico. Vicious and bloodthirsty in the ring, the innovative luchador drew the animosity of audiences thanks to the punishment he caused fan favorites with his brutal array of submission holds. The inventor of maneuvers like the Camel Clutch (which he called La de a Caballo), Guerrero's favorite hold was the Gory Special, a modified backbreaker that he used to pummel the spines of legends like Lou Thesz. In later years, the brutal maneuver was regularly performed by Chavo Guerrero in tribute to his legendary grandfather.
