Two sides of pro-wrestling....

I'm having a case of writers block here, so I'm going to show you two of my favorite pro-wrestling clips.  I know a good number of you don't care for the spectacle one bit, and I'm okay with that.  That said, I think both of these will pique your interest one way or another.



The first one I'd like to share with you is a match that took place on December 8, 1977 between "Great Antonio" (fat guy) and wrestling legend "Antonio Inoki" (japanese guy).  Wrestling is fake, we all know that, but sometimes the fight becomes real.  In this clip, notice Great Antonio is "no-selling" all of Inoki's moves, as in, not making the moves look like they hurt making an embarrassment of Inoki.  He's essentially clowning around and showing off, and you can notice Inoki becoming visibly upset.  Inoki finally snaps when at 4:35 when Great Antonio starts raining painful hammer fists down on Inoki's neck.  Inoki then smacks the hell out of Great Antonio and uses his own size against as he legitimately kicks, punches and stomps down on G.A.  The match ends with Great Antonio a bloody mess, and Inoki gets presented with a trophy.  Kind of scary in a way, people didn't mess with Inoki back then and this clip pretty much proves why.  Now, here's something complete different...



Enter: Chikara Pro Wrestling. Comedic-style wrestling.  In this match, I don't even need to explain anything. All that needs to be said is INVISIBLE HAND GRENADE...perhaps one of the more dangerous moves of wrestling.

Well, that's all I have for you guys today.  Later.

  3. Interesting comment, cool_cicler. Care to expand on that? Antonio Barichievich was actually a bit eccentric. He was a strong man to be sure, able to pulled four city buses filled with people...but he wasn't all there. I mean, during his later years he reportedly turned his hair into golf-club and challenged Tiger Woods to a match for $100 million. A HAIR GOLF CLUB...
