– With Sheamus’ Brogue Kick banned by SmackDown General Manager Booker T, the World Heavyweight Champion heads into his Night of Champions match with Alberto Del Rio with a new submission maneuver; Cloverleaf.
Innovated by WWE Hall of Famer Dory Funk, Jr., Sheamus says former WWE and WCW competitor Dean Malenko’s use of maneuver inspired him to master the hold.
“Dean was one of the greatest submission experts ever, and as history has seen, he’s made hundreds and hundreds of Superstars tap out [to the Cloverleaf],” Sheamus told WWE.com. “It’s one of the most agonizing and painful submission holds, and it’s also one of the most effective. Plus, being Irish, the Cloverleaf fits me well.”
