Johnny Czeslaw was a baldheaded polish toughguy who looked like a roman senator and survived a russian concentration camp as a boy, but seemingly enjoyed doing light hearted comedic technical wrestling a lot. Kellett is one of those 1 in 1000 characters that you have to see once in your life. This is easily the greatest comedy match ever. Even with all the jest going on here, they keep it highly competitive and do all these great moves and holds, especially Czeslaw who is such a wrestling master. Les Kellett, for a crusty old charlatan, wasn't afraid to take reckless bumps. The facial expressions, timing and body language on display here were incomparable. The jokes had an almost silent film like quality to it, and they never exposed the business. This match was funny, fascinating and impossibly british all at once.

This is really a terrific match. It's funny, it's classy, it's charming - part of that surely due to the dulcet tomes of Kent Walton - and it's a very solid British pro wrestling match on top of all that. The joke they pull between the first and second falls is as funny as anything Kuishinbo and Ebessan ever did.
