• WWE Hall Of Famer Gave John Cena The STF Submission Hold

On a recent episode of his podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Arn Anderson talked about being in charge of scripting John Cena’s matches as an agent and being responsible for giving Cena the STF (originally named “STFU” during the Ruthless Aggression era’s TV-14 rating).

Here’s what the former Four Horsemen member had to say about giving Cena the submission hold:

“I gave him the move because I saw it in Japan, I thought it was a tremendous finish.

You trap the guy’s leg, his knee is bent uncomfortably, and then you reach up and you hook him around the jaw.

Apparently he did snug it up when he first started using it and some guys said ‘Hey man, you’re choking me out, you need to loosen up’.”
