Wow. I had no idea there is footage of Ed Lewis available. 


I've been meaning to take a pilgrimage to see the historical marker dedicated to him in his home town, which is only a few hours away from me.

Good slow building match. The cool thing with these guys is that they treated basic moves headlock or leg scissors as finishers when applied properly, so there's a nice tension in the opening moments when they do those otherwise mundane holds. They do a nice job getting mileage out of other holds, too, such as toeholds and arm locks. It's really not too different from 70's stuff with Inoki and Brisco. We only get 20 minutes but I also think it's pretty impressive Lewis worked an hour long match like this in his 40's. Good stuff towards the finish too with it looking like Shikat has his older opponent's number but Lewis finding just the right opportunity to pull out his strangle hold
