I finally found video of the Pat Patterson cobra clutch challenge

I just want to quickly mention that I updated my prior blog post, “Slaughter’s cobra clutch challenge peaks with an attack on Patterson,” to include a link to a video clip of that great angle.

It was the first time I have ever found a video of the attack online. Man, I was excited just to watch the whole thing again. I don’t think I’ve seen the Pat Patterson cobra clutch challenge since it originally aired in 1981, and I remember almost every bit of it (although I forgot about the referee pulling Sgt. Slaughter’s hair). Patterson, as always, was great in this angle, so it is well worth 10 minutes of your time to watch.

    Just seen clip – at the time kinda knew this encounter would occur.
    Slaughter was a mean hombre back then.
