In a truly hilarious video, two Canadian Football League (CFL) legends exchanged blows with each other at the league’s Alumni Legends Luncheon in Vancouver this past weekend.

Gridiron figures Joe Kapp and Angelo Mosca began their scuffle just a few seconds after being introduced on stage, as the crowd’s reactions quickly turned from being amused to alarmed at the severity of the fight.

The bad blood between the two stemmed from their teams, Kapp’s B.C. Lions and Mosca’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats, facing off in the CFL’s Grey Cup title game in 1963. Mosca delivered a controversial hit knocking Lions running back Willie Flemming out of the game. Hamilton went on to win, 21-10.

The two were seated at a table earlier, with Kapp refusing an apology from Mosca. Kapp tried to give flowers to Mosca on stage, but the lineman told his rivalry to “Shove them up your ass,” triggering the fight.

Mosca was also a former wrestler in the then named World Wrestling Federation, now known as World Wrestling Entertainment.
