Rikidozan vs. Bobo Brazil

Post by CrimsonMask » 2003/07/29 Tue 11:13 pm

Just saw this match on tape, I'm guessing it's from around '55. Basically breaks down into Chop Vs. Headbutt (and is MUCH more interesting than that sounds). Anyway I really don't understand what happens. The doctor checks Riki for blood several times. Bobo APPEARS to just leave the ring at the ends of what either are or aren't the first and second falls. I don't see any decision announced. Hisa, any clue?

So long from the Sunshine State!

I remember watching it on video but forgot the detail. Lemme check it again. It's on the same video we talked about before, right?

No, just got this tape. It has this match, then a tag match with Riki and Toyonobori vs. Bobo and Lord Layton which seems to have been the blowoff from the singles match with the Japanese going over clean, and then the Thesz-Riki broadway.
