For those who may be of the mindset that modern wrestling begins and ends with Vince McMahon, why not take a trip back to a time before the bright lights of the WWE to see just how the smack was laid down in the good old days. These are the rare and classic matches that made history, and with footage of Buddy "Nature Boy" Rogers, Gorgeous George, Killer Kowalski, and Antonio Rocco in the ring, fans can rest assured that they're in for some serious skull cracking fun. A bonus inclusion of some of wrestling's strangest moments offers such oddities as a Two Ring Battle Royal, midget women wrestling, and a brutal bout featuring 625 pound behemoth Haystacks Calhoun.
