115 years before the Hardys thought to combine wrestling with campy action movies, there was this. I don't want to spoil it, but there's some really creative usage of film here in the context of a comedy wrestling match. At just 2 minutes long, I would recommend it to see a very interesting piece of both film and wrestling history.

And all this time I have been thinking that Ebessan and Kuishinbou Kamen invented that "promenade" spot!
