Before it was a circus, it was grassroots entertainment. These square-circled matches feature the legends of the ring, including such champions as Gorgeous George, Ilio Dipaolo, Antonino Rocca, and Hans Schmidt. While these are classic bouts, the main event highlights one of the dirtiest grapplers of all time, The Sheik. With his patented submission hold, "the camel clutch," he wages war against the man from South America, Bobo Brazil. Produced by Worldvision Home Video, this 60-minute tape takes the wrestling fan back to a time when the good guys wore white hats and the bad guys wore black.
