There was bad blood between the Chicago White Sox and Texas Rangers' Nolan Ryan, and after this 1993 beatdown from Ryan on Chicago's Robin Ventura, there's no doubt who came out on top.

Ryan, then 46 years old and 20 years older than Ventura, told the Austin-American Statesman (via Wikipedia) he used the same move on the steers on his Texas ranch as he grabbed Ventura, put him in a headlock and started whaling. 

Ventura was thrown out of the game while Nolan was not.
