|Tibor Szakacs takes his first fall in the 5th after crossbodying through a bodyslam attempt at seen above|
|Bruno gets whipped into the corner so hard that the ref loses balance|
This match had it all. Great technical wrestling, Bruno being your big bruiser heel while Tibor was the master of the mat. Some nice strike exchanges, 30 years before it was the norm and they just really sold the story well of Bruno being the big frustrated heel who resorted to clubbing when he couldn't put down Tibor. The announcer was really good, selling the match and explaining the nuances while putting over the story and both guys. Highly recommended and if you want to understand what people mean when they say "Wrestling today sucks" and "guys don't know how to work", this is what they are talking about. No one took any huge bumps, no one did anything they couldn't do for another 20 years without serious injury and they made it look like two guys trying to win, not a gymnastics show. The crowd loved it, I loved it and these two went near 25 minutes and it still wasn't enough.
Classics pro wrestling at its finest here and something everyone should watch and copy. Rating:*****
