In bottom wrestling, “head up” is a core concept, unless your opponent can throw a crossface.
The crossface series is a crucial element to any wrestler’s top work. If not because it is a very reliable source of back points and pins, then because the combination of a crossface butcher, and a crossface cradle, is one of the best ways to break a wrestler determined to establish position and escape.
The keys to this series include knowing where to attacked the arm, and mechanics of attacking the body once this handle is established. After the handle is in place, the top wrestler has a few simple choices to make before securing the fall.
Use the bottom wrestlers best option against him!
