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. The much larger and stronger and surlier Orton - whom Davis likens to a food taster who has lost their sense of taste - wins easily over Lewis with a reverse chin press.
