WWF All Star Wrestling – February 21, 1981

Last week we saw the final appearances of both Jim Duggan (0-8-0) and Hulk Hogan (19-0-0). Both men will return to the WWF in the future, but for now we move on. Tonight is the last of this taping, and we have Sgt Slaughter and Angelo Mosca in singles action, among other things. Let’s go to the ring.

Vince and Pat welcome us to the show, and go over tonight’s action. We will also see the World Tag Team Champions in action, as the Moondogs are hunting for them, and now so is Killer Khan and Hangman.

1. Sgt Slaughter v. Ron Shaw

This is from Championship Wrestling from the same day. Before the match Jack Carson is in the ring and ready for the Cobra Clutch Challenge. Slaughter comes out with his ears plugged so he can’t hear the Gomer chants. The hold is locked on and quickly Carson is done, that was pointless. Slaughter attacks Carson after and rams him into the turnbuckle before tossing him to the floor as Shaw makes his way to ringside we see Gorilla Monsoon scrape Carson off the floor. Lockup and Slaughter misses the shot in the corner, but catches Shaw anyway however Shaw fires back and makes Slaughter eat the turnbuckle. Slaughter nails Shaw with a back elbow and follows with a big slam in the middle of the ring, then drives multiple knees into the chest of Shaw. Back suplex from Slaughter, as he’s distracted by the fans still, but keeps on Shaw, locking in the Clutch for the easy win. Slaughter tries to after Joe McHugh who won’t take that from Slaughter.

Slaughter says he doesn’t want to hear that chant anymore and reiterates the Cobra Clutch Challenge. Slaughter says it’s double money for Patterson to get in the ring right now and break the clutch. Patterson says he guarantees that when he’s ready he’ll step in there, and Slaughter asks if he’s yellow and calls him a coward.
