Has Malphite always had a cripple?

I was just playing a game as Taric and was fighting Malphite when I couldn't combo at all. He lowered my attack speed from 2 to 1. Have I somehow missed this in my 5 years of playing or was the cripple recently added? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuiZ1qlOqiQ&feature=youtu.be
