Wrestling History Lessons w/ Sean Orleans

Why do I keep going to All Japan Pro Wrestling for my history lessons?  Is it the fact the legends of the sport always go to Japan to ply their craft?  Maybe it’s the respectful audience?  I don’t know.  Maybe it’s because I don’t think you’re ready to see some “British wrestling” just yet.  Soon enough.  In the meantime, enjoy Mexican wrestling hero Mil Mascaras taking on Ricky Steamboat and his STUPENDOUS arm drags from August 1981 (in a 2-out-of-3-Falls bout).

Special note: Why don’t MMWA refs have red or orange slacks like these Japan refs?  I gotta bring this up to Mr. Casta and Mr. Miller at the next meeting…
