Four things make a good wrestler: Entrance music, In-ring action, mic-skills and a solid finishing move. If all these four things are integrated into them in good proportions, the wrestler is bound to see success in the wrestling scene. However, two of them are the primary reason behind their wrestling career, that is In-ring action and finishing move.

Many of our favorite wrestlers have an amazing move-set, and that attracts our attention towards them. There are some maneuvers which are made exclusively for wrestlers. Eg. Curb-Stomp is exclusively for Seth Rollins. While some moves are used by various wrestlers. Eg. DDT's, Clothesline etc.

Chris Jericho's Walls of Jericho is a submission move that is a variation of the Boston Crab. This vicious submission maneuver has spread a wave of dread across the roster because if applied with full pressure, it can end the wrestler's career and alter the way their body works for their entire life.

Walls of Jericho has also been used in UFC by Jonno Mears which made Jericho a proud man.


Y2J has used this move on several occasions to mark victories and annihilate his opponent. Initially, Jericho used the Liontamer, the more vicious form of Walls of Jericho where he applied pressure with his knee on the back of his opponent's neck. After following the advice of many, he changed it to the Walls of Jericho which went along with WWE's PG era.

Jericho was one of the limited wrestlers who used this move to perfection. Terming it the 'Walls of Jericho' in line with his gimmick was certainly a masterstroke.
