Quite simply, this movie should be remembered as a pure piece of Americana
at its finest. In 1973 wrestling promoter Verne Gagne took some of the best
wrestlers in the pro wrestling world and got them to make a movie about pro
wrestling. The movie, 30 years in retrospect, looks more like a cheeky
documentary produced in the classic "kayfabe" style (the traditional
promotion of wrestling as a sport, cloaked in mystique and tradition).
The wrestling talent is pure, raw and unadulterated - featuring stars such
as Dick the Bruiser, the Crusher, Nick Bockwinkle, Ric Flair, Dory Funk Jr,
and "Dirty" Dick Murdoch, Dusty Rhodes and many others - all young and in
just starting to hit their peaks. And in a rare appearance, Vincent J.
McMahon, the progenitor of the now popular WWF/WWE - promoting pro wrestling
in the old style, before the glitz, glamor and entertainment hoopla
surrounding it. Verne Gagne himself also appears in this movie as one of its
main stars, putting himself over the competition in his typical egotistical,
yet entertaining, style.
But this movie isn't all wrestling. There's a good story to be told here,
essentially giving the viewer the feel as if they've cut right into the
middle of a traditional wrestling program. There is no real start or ending
to this story, but it is another chapter in the daily struggle of faces and
Ed Asner is the main star here, his acting ability along with his middle-age
looks are a perfect fit for the character, he really does look like a
wrestling promoter trying to keep his business together and defending it
from the outside corrupting influences of a local mobster (played by
legendary wrestler & commentator "Slammin'" Sam Menacker).
There is no comparison to any other wrestling movie made, this one is
definitely the undisputed heavyweight champion!
