Wahoo McDaniel v. Greg Valentine 9/7/77

This is the Mid-Alantic title vs. 2000 silver dollars which is such an awesome old school wrestling stipulation. Bob Caudle said that "Both men are standing toe to toe exchanging" which is pretty much a perfect description of this match. Everything land with such force and such a thud. Valentine's forearm smashes are so uncalled for, you can see them crumple Wahoo with each shot. There is one point where he just cracks Wahoo square in the ear with the point of his elbow. Of course Wahoo hits probably the stiffest chops in wrestling history as a receipt. It isn't a long match but it just keeps getting nastier and nastier by the end Wahoo is hitting over hand chops to the bridge of Valentine's nose, and when Greg breaks his leg with the kneebar, it seems like a perfectly reasonable response. If that motherfucker chopped me in the face like that I might try to break his leg too. Man Valentine comes off as giant badass in this match, he doesn't double team him, or hit Wahoo with a chair, he just grabs a leg and snaps it. Such a gritty violent spectacle.

This is on a Lynch comp which Will has if you feel the need to put it on a Schneider comp or whatever.

Just watched this. Ahhh, the glory days of the game. So damn fun. The kneebar being the finish really surprised me too even though I had read it in the review. I was expecting a figure four at any moment. Too good.
