A short excerpt from 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 match is a tag team between Angelo Poffo (aka The Masked Miser aka The Carpet Bagger) and Hans Schmidt versus Pat O’Connor and Bob Knovsky. Knovsky pins Schmidt for the win. Unknown why this was rejected or exactly what is was to be used for in regards to SMPTE.
