THE MOTHERFUCKING INTERNET: THE SUPERSTAH v. CHECKMATE

Bill Dundee v. Tony Charles CWA 6/11/79

Total hidden gem arriving on youtube, there were highlights of this match in a bunch of Bill Dundee music videos on the Memphis set, although I always thought Tony Charles was Bob Armstrong. This is a technical wrestling match from Jackson TN, between Dundee and the Welshman Tony Charles (who Texas DVDVR set fans know as Checkmate). I love these kind of maestro contra maestro matches, and they did a bunch of nifty mat stuff. I especially dug the way Charles countered Dundee's boston crab attempts, and the cool ways they worked around the monkey flip. The crazy fast rollup finish was awesome too. The coolest thing about this match was how much Lance Russell was marking out on commentary, you could tell he was having a total blast calling this kind of scientific contest.
