Wikipedia: "Joe Stecher (April 4, 1893 – March 29, 1974), sometimes spelled Joe Stetcher, was a professional wrestler and three-time World Heavyweight Wrestling Champion." As for thed readed scissor movement:

During this time, he also developed freakishly strong leg muscles as he practiced squeezing 100-pound sacks of grain on the farm until they would ultimately burst. As a result, Stecher soon became renowned for his feared leg scissors submission hold, which subsequently earned him the nickname of "The Scissors King"
