That's absolute rubbish. He applies it mostly to the younger guys, whereas guys like Michaels he can't apply the Liontamer anymore because of his back injuries. Although you'll see him apply it to the younger guys like Bourne, Danielson, Kendrick and so on.

It's this stupid facination that Vince has; that it's almost some sort of unwritten rule that a big face can never tap out and if they do then it's a very rare occassion. Whereas guys like Cena apply the STF and superstars tap in seconds. It's just terrible to see, especially when you see actual submission specialists not get to utilize their attributes to the fullest.

Guys like Punk and Jericho both would look alot stronger if they got to really utilize their submissions and make them look stronger but instead we get guys like Cena using the terrible STF and instantly gets the person to tap. It makes no sense.
