The camel clutch used by the Iron Sheik in this match was the most convincing looking version he may have ever used due to how Bob Backlund positioned himself in the hold.

Freddie Blassie remained at ringside. For a long time the managers at MSG were introduced, but then retreated to the locker room. Was this the first time he'd ever stayed? If so, did anyone at the time see it as a tipoff that something big was going to happen even if it wasn't a title change?
