I always had a love/hate relationship with British wrestling. It was on at World of Sport, bang on at 4:00 pm on a Saturday afternoon. We had a mix of boring, bad wrestling time and time again. However on the odd occasion you will get someone exciting or interesting. Someone mysterious such as Kendo Nagasaki or dynamic such as Kung Fu or the plain belly flops of Big Daddy.

As a young lad I used to go to see Wrestling shows on holiday in a seaside resort. They all used to turn up, Tony St Clair, Klondyke Kate, Les Kellett, The Mighty Quinn are just a few big wrestlers who would come to town in the morning and leave early the next day for the next venue.

This documentary was a celebration of British wrestling, its rise and fall and looked at some of the top wrestlers and their famous feuds especially with the bad guys the crowds loved to hate.

When wrestling lost its television spot and with the rise of US Wrestling it fell from grace, bad news for young, up and coming wrestlers.

There is plenty of footage that brings nostalgia, a reminder of some old faces many of whom are no longer with us. An interesting thought, a lot of the British wrestlers seemed to have lived to a ripe old age, they might have had bad joints etc but compare this to the WWE wrestlers who are lucky to reach the age of 60.
