Here we can witness a whole different business. Wrestling by this time was still very legit-looking. This short footage only allows us to see so much, but it’s possible to notice how professional wrestling changed since then. Even the presentation is closer to modern day boxing than to proper wrestling. Although it’s not possible to run a deep analysis of the match, it is still good to have the chance to watch two of the greatest icons of the business squaring off.
