Nope. This was never one of my favorites. Wrestling just bores me to tears - it's just a personal preference, so...if you like it and you like LHOTP, then you'll love this one!

Of course the best part of this episode is seeing Ketti Lester (who later returns to play Hester Sue (can't spell last name), a teacher at the blind school and later a cook in the restaurant and a love interest for Joe Kagan (Moses Gunn) It's interesting that Joe Kagan, who's the same character to come back later on the show, is actually married tot he same woman who played divorcée, Hester Sue. Interestingly, she is not divorced from Joe Kagan...

The banter between Charles, Jonathan, and Dr. Baker in this episode is also priceless.
