Storyline

It's 1955 and the middle of the cold war when Sam leaps into the body of Terry Sammis, a professional wrestler who, along with his brother Ronnie, form a tag team. They're from Arkansas but their ring persona is that of Soviets and they taunt the crowd with their pro-Russian rants. Al tells Sam that Terry is new to the wrestling game having just replaced an older brother who died in a car crash. He also tells him Ronnie will die in the big title match they have scheduled for the next day. Sam tries to convince Ronnie to pass upon the big match but wrestling is in their blood and Ronnie has no intention of giving up their big chance. There's only one thing Sam can do: fight the entire match by himself and make sure Ronnie never enters the ring. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Lamar the Promoter: You can't win.
Ronny Sammis: Can't win? What are you talking about? This is a title match!
Lamar the Promoter: Well, you bet it's a title match. And you boys are "the Russians". Now, how the hell is it going to look to the American public to have a couple of communists be the world champion?
Ronny Sammis: But we're not from Russia, we're from Arkansas!
Lamar the Promoter: I know that. You know that. But John Q. Public don't know that. To him, you represent the epitome of evil - something to be destroyed!
