Abstract
An episode of a syndicated wrestling show shot at Chicago’s International Amphitheatre. Shot live on film with three-camera coverage, it features a witty and entertaining narration from announcer Russ Davis. Both wrestlers in the match were unpopular with the crowd for their underhanded wrestling style. Kirilenko wins when Gypsy Joe is disqualified for illegally punching Kirilenko when he was tied up in the ropes. Earl Mullihan referees the bout.
