Pin-Up Strong (Natalya)

Perhaps a better name for this submission is The Rainmaker — because every time Pin-Up Strong was applied, tears poured down a Diva's cheeks.

"Pin-Up Strong is a submission I performed when I was paired with Beth Phoenix as the Sisters of Destruction," Natalya told WWE.com. "When we tag-teamed together, she'd help me set it up and we made the other Divas cry — everybody from Eve Torres to Kelly Kelly — we made all those girls cry."

Can you blame the Divas for crying? The modified surfboard into a double wrist lock — inspired by Japanese female pro wrestler Kyoko Inoue — contorted and trapped Natalya's opponents' bodies upside down in such an awkwardly painful way, tapping out isn't even an option. Although the submission was brutally effective, Natalya said Pin-Up Strong doesn't measure up to her Sharpshooter, so she reserves it only for special occasions when she really needs to step up her game.

"I look forward to putting it on my next opponent," Natalya said.

Whichever Diva that happens to be, get your Kleenex ready.
