Great Antonio vs. Antonio Inoki December 8, 1977
Pro wrestling gone wrong and turned into a real fight.
Eccentric strongman Great Antonio (6’4″, 465 lbs, 52 years old) decided to not follow the script by clowning around, being stiff, and not selling Inoki’s attacks. But he paid the price. Legit shooter Antonio Inoki (6’3″, 224 lbs, 34 years old) soccer kicked his head into a bloody pulp.
