Wrestling History Lessons w/ Sean Orleans

Today’s trip into the vault is from April 1983 between two genuine Texas toughies: Terry Funk and Stan Hansen, in All Japan Pro Wrestling.

Don’t know who Stan Hansen is, kiddos?  Let me put it to you like this: if you put Terry Funk against a tyrannosaurus rex, Funk would let the T-Rex eat him and say he’s got the dinosaur right where he wants him (and Funk would be right).  Stan Hansen would walk up to the T-Rex and lariat the giant lizard into extinction.  Which may or may not have happened anyway.  Some fossil records have not been fully analyzed.

But I digress.  Enjoy the match, knuckleheads.
