Watch TV Arm Wrestling Match Go Wrong…..Horribly Wrong
An Australian rugby show hosted an “Iron Arm Wrestling” challenge and its finalists took their elbows to the table Thursday.
Former National Rugby League players Wendell “Big Dell” Sailor and Ben Ross had just started to flex their muscles against each other when Ross crumbled, his elbow snapping with a cringe-worthy sound.
The men were in the second round of the Iron Arm Challenge, a competition for charity, when there was cracking noise and Ross yelled out.
The host of the TV show, Paul “Fatty” Vautin, told the stunned studio audience they were going to a commercial and called for an ambulance.
According to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Ross was taken to a local hospital and had an X-ray which showed a break in the humerus of his right arm.
Sailor later tweeted, “Just like to send some love/well wishes out to @benross23 & his family after the accident on the @NRLFootyShow — sorry Big Ben feel so bad.”
