Saturday afternoon fun,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Best Of ITV Wrestling: A-Z [DVD] (DVD)
Only those of a certain age will remember this. I prefer American-style wrestling, but I do have fond memories of tuning in with my nan to watch the British wrestling on a saturday afternoon. Big Daddy, Giant Haystacks, Mick McManus...loved all the baddies. But hated the way the matches dragged on...broken up into rounds, interminable rest holds, little in the way of high-flying.
On the plus side, I thought the 'public warnings' were great though, and the contorted granny faces at ringside giving the bad guys what-for!! Marvellous.
Young lads and lasses who have ever only known the WWE-style of grappling may actually find this snapshot of 70s/early 80s British TV wrestling quite intriguing though - if only for a few laughs on a wet weekend afternoon. Which is pretty much the purpose it served originally!
