Re: Figure Four Leg Lock
I think of Ric Flair right away....  And then Greg Valentine.. partly because I've just caw'd him.

Re: Figure Four Leg Lock
I think of Buddy Rodgers because Ric Flair basically just stole his whole enitre gimmick anyway......another couple I think of is Greg Valentine and Jeff Jarrett

Re: Figure Four Leg Lock
Like KRad I also think Ric Flair straight away. If I think a little more I guess Jeff Jarrett is next to come to mind but Flair is the wrestler I associate the move with most.

Re: Figure Four Leg Lock
Definitely Flair. I think you'd be hard pressed to find someone who doesn't immediately associate the Figure Four with Flair.  Except for owenrock, of course.  Smile

Re: Figure Four Leg Lock
well I kinda did associate it with Flair.....although I associated it with the original Ric Flair lol I like Ric Flair he had much more success with the Gimmick but lets not kid ourselves...he doesnt have much originality about him...he pretty much stole Buddy Rodgers whole persona and used it as his own

Re: Figure Four Leg Lock
You're right, no doubt about it.  The thing is, a lot of people (myself included) had never seen Buddy perform until years later through outlets like old tapes, YouTube, etc. So, yes, Flair pretty much stole the ball and ran with it, but I didn't know that when I was being amazed by him in the 80s.

Hello all: Could be wrong, but I believe Dory Funk Jr. used it in the Seventies. Best, Chris.

Great Muta, Flair, Buddy Rogers, Valentine, Jarrett, HBK. And Bret Doing it around the ring post.

Those are the first few which come to mind, no love for Muta, wow and I would have thought people would have mentioned Bret doing it around the ring post.
