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.
