Now, I know Cole makes a lot of horrible calls during matches, but this one had me perplexed.

Anaconda Vice of old is an arm-trap triangle choke, whereas last night, he seemed to use a variant of the gogoplata (much like Hell's Gate).

So, my questions are which do you prefer? Do you think it'll become a permanent switch? And will SuperCena ever put Punk over by tapping out to Anaconda's Gate?

As a side note - this was the first full match Punk has been involved in on live TV for a while and he did not look even slightly rusty. Let's have faith that he'll get a good push this year.

Annoyed me to hell when Cole called that the anaconda vice.

If Punk keeps it around however, should call it the Anacondoplata :)

It was a Koji Clutch, the play by play on Raw is absolutely abysmal.
Thanks for the correction :)

this is michael cole who still thinks ziggler's version of the rocker dropper is called the zig zag lol
I think this week he simply called it "that move" or words to that effect :lmao

Well Michael Cole does not know what happens in the ring. He should be permanent GM instead, because he is a really good character, and then we need a good Play by Play guy.

By the way the Punk looked really good for a guy who has been inactive for some time.

Thankfully, Styles captioned a picture on WWE.com correctly calling it the Koji Clutch, so maybe next time Cole will get it right.

I saw it, heard Cole call the Anaconda Vice and laughed. Would have loved Striker to have been there to call him up on it.

I knew Styles would correct Cole (as he usually does) but what really bothered me is he called Cena a "submission specialist" :no:

Punk clearly watched a Christopher Daniels match yesterday and said hey his submission looks cool I am going to use it now. The move is cool but at least the Anaconda Vice was something original for Punk who seems to frown on original moves.

Whatever it ends up being called, the move was fucking sick. I hope it becomes a permanent addition as a finisher in Punk's move set. Cena really sold the move well before he got to the ropes, I almost thought Punk was going to make him pass out.

The reverse russian leg sweep/face buster that he did to set it up was and awesome precurser to the hold.

The setup then the submission was amazing, I hope he keeps that is his back pocket like Taker keeps Last Ride.
