So, this is still a bit older than that Stecher vs. Caddoc match.

 

This is coming from Prague, and very unlike anything we know. I'm not really sure if this is pro wrestling atall or amateur, to be honest, the missing ropes leave me somewhat puzzled here. But the fact that Fristensky has travelled to the US and fought such names as Frank Gotch has me guessing he's a pro.

 

Not much to say about the match, it really is only grapplnig, basically. But the fact that such old footage exists and is freely available for everybody out there is marvellous by itself, I'd say.
