Date Of Production
Same as 2008-04-0048. An episode of a syndicated wrestling show shot at Chicago’s International Amphitheatre. Shot live on film with three-camera coverage, it features a witty and entertaining narration from announcer Russ Davis. The reel features two matches. The first is between the much lighter Bastien against the stronger Atlas, which Atlas wins with his patented Atlas hold (a variant of the sleeper hold). The second match is between the more athletic Meyers and the trickier Devails. Meyers overcomes his opponent with his Atomic drop, which is a variant of the back breaker. Though the opponents are mismatched the first is the more exciting of the two matches.
