As he turns and steps in, he raises Tye's arm and places it on his shoulder. He drops to his knees and pulls down on the collar and sleeve. Because Tye's arm is across his body, he will have a very difficult time trying to take Kade's back. Now Kade leans forward and pulls Tye over his body to finish the takedown.
