The Iron Sheik's Signature Move



The Camel Clutch - The Iron Sheik's submission hold made many tap out, helping to lead The Sheik to the WWF World Heavyweight Title at one point. With the opponent down on the mat (sometimes on his hands and knees), The Iron Sheik would come in from behind and grab their arms, wrapping them around his legs. The Sheik then put both hands underneath the wrestler's chin, pulling back while sitting down on his foe's spine. It was an extremely painful maneuver that took brute strength to somehow escape.
