The 50 coolest maneuvers of all time

#42 Killer Kowalski's Stomach Claw

A master of the mat science, Walter “Killer” Kowalski knew that in order to succeed in his chosen industry he had to develop a unique maneuver that would bring him success. And that’s what he did with the bizarre — and effective — Stomach Claw. With his massive hands, Kowalski worked like a surgeon, pinpointing his opponent’s stomach muscles with precision. It got ugly from there as Killer applied vicious, relentless pressure, squeezing an opponent’s intenstines until submission was achieved. Needless to say, it took some time before Kowalski’s defeated adversary could enjoy a good meal afterwards. — HOWARD FINKEL
