Great Classic footage, no plots necessary
28 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

As a youngster, this movie was the first exposure I had to wrestling's original madman, The Sheik, whom the movie is centered around. The story is ridiculous, but the movie itself is worth picking up for the classic footage if nothing else. Classic wrestling from the 70s is not that easy to come by, and in this case, its all from Detroit, where there is practically NO footage. This movie helps provide a glimpse into the way wrestling used to be, more in ring action, and less soap opera drama. I've had two different VHS copies of this movie, and after much searching, I found a Laserdisc copy of it, so I don't have to worry about that one wearing out. Easily one of my favorite wrestling videos.
