Three things the 'Wendell Sailor Arm Wrestle' video reminded us of...

Cut to the commercial...MEDIC!
If by some bizarre twist of fate you managed to miss it, former duel code international Wendell Sailor was involved in a horrific yet compellingly entertaining arm wrestle in which his opponent - Ben Ross - managed to pull his own bicep off the bone. 

The incident (below) which has gone globally viral, reminded of us of a few great arm wrestling moments, both real and fictitious.

1. When Jeff Goldblum breaks some beer lout's arm in 'The Fly' (1986) 


 2. When Magnus Samuelsson and former Rugby League colossus Nathan Jones' faced off in the ultimate arm wrestle

3. This brilliant scene from the appropriately titled Stallone vehicle 'Over the Top' (1987)
