Figure Four Question.

Hey Scott, 

Apologies if you've ever covered this before, but I have a question about how wrestlers sell the figure four leglock.  Wouldn't the leg thats kept straight (and hyperextended) be where the pain is centered?  But I feel like the wrestler always sells the knee that gets bent.  Am I missing something?  Thanks for the blog btw, it's pretty much how I keep up with the product these days, I can't sit through 5+ hours of WWE TV every week.  

Nope, you're not missing anything.  The straight leg is indeed supposed to be the one taking all the pressure and causing the pain.  It's a major pet peeve of mine.
