Turn back the clock to the 1970’s when Saturday afternoon meant one thing and that was Wrestling. With the chants of “Easy, easy” and commentary by an over excited Kent Walton, this was British sport at is best. Relive all the action in this non stop wrestling frenzy featuring the most entertaining segments of 24 key bouts from 1970 to 1983. With all the biggest and best wrestlers from the era Jackie Pallo, Mick McManus, Les Kellett, Pat Roach, Kendo Nagasaki, Giant Haystacks & Big Daddy. Presented by Dickie Davies , ITV’s World of Sport’s long running presenter (1965 – 1985).

Attention all British wrestling fans....THIS is the dvd you've been waiting for. It is fantastic and I enjoyed every moment. Big Daddy, Giant Haystacks...and the legendary (my favourite) Kendo Nagasaki, they are all here and SOOOO watchable. It brought back many memories and just the sight of all those little old women in the front row getting worked up, almost to the point of using their handbags as a weapon, had me in tears of laughter...you dont get THAT in the USA Wrestlemanias. British wrestling had just as many characters, a fraction of the money but a hell of a lot more fun!!!! buy this, you WONT regret it, hopefully more volumes will be on their way.

Why do I love wrestling so much? The characters, the presentation, the storylines, the rivalries, the theatrics, the athleticism, the gimmicks, the variety? All of that, certainly. And maybe because it's in my blood to love wrestling.

After all, my nana really loved wrestling. She loved to see British legends like Big Daddy match-up against Giant Haystacks. She loved the fun and the lively atmosphere of British wrestling, tuning into ITV's World of Sport on Saturday afternoons. I'd been told bits of what it was like by my nana and parents, and I'd also seen a few clips on the "I Love the 70's" programme a few years back. Me being a fan of stuff like WWE, I decided to buy this DVD just to discover for myself what it was that made British Wrestling so special.

The Best of ITV Wrestling is presented by one Dickie Davies, the host of the enormously popular World of Sport programme which ran from 1965 to 1985. His professionalism in presenting still shines through here, thus making for a fine host. Dickie also presents the programme looking back at it all with such fondness and appreciation. His warming nature thus making the viewer take a liking to him and the action that follows

This is a compilation show chronicling the seven biggest legends of British Wrestling; Jackie Pallo, Mick McManus, Les Kellett, Pat Roach (the future star from Auf Wiedersehen, Pet), Kendo Nagasaki and of course, Giant Haystacks and Big Daddy. Now, because I grew up watching the likes of Hulk Hogan and Stone Cold Steve Austin, I knew I was in for something completely different here. Those newer-generation fans expecting ladders, chair shots, high-flying dives, multi-move technicians, non-stop action etc will find none of that stuff here.

Excellent starter pack for those wanting to relive - or discover for the first time - the extraordinary world of ITV Saturday afternoon wrestling. A real journey back in time to that distant era of the 1970s and '80s, complete with over-excited ladies with beehives and handbag-waving grannies in the front row.

It should be said that though that wrestling purists will be saddened by the prominence given here to the grotesques, Giant Haystacks and others of the freakshow variety of performer. Very entertaning in their way but a world away from the dazzling, exhilerating displays of acrobatic skill given by some of the younger, fit guys. They were the real action!
