During a \vl\d scramble the Swede rushed ln"to' the aid of ticlkas. He dove under the pile, cnmo up with a double wrlstlock and started clamping while muttering "now kick, darn you'" He had snagged Mike's arm by mistake nnd was pulling on too pressure before the official could reveal that it belonged to him and not oce of the-wrestlers.
