Crapper Drew submitted this and writes:
The pairing of Psycho Bob Backlund (a few years removed from his dumb Presidential candidate storyline) and All American heel Kurt Angle was a no-brainer. With his ankle lock and now Backlund’s cross-face chicken wing – Angle could now make his opponents submit with two dreaded finishers.
But I think old Bob was wearing out his welcome in WWF’s new Attitude Era in a big, bad way.
I don’t remember seeing him much after this flub on live television.
Here Backlund is probably meant to put the hapless onlooker into the chicken wing but it doesn’t go that way..
Kurt’s “Jim/Tim-from-The-Office” style mug to the camera man at 0:16 after Backlund botches the segment is priceless.
That was so well written, I have nothing more to add except “Thanks, Drew!”.
