Legends of the ring (L-R): Fuji Yamada, Mitzi Mueller, Gorgeous George, Kendo Nagasaki, Mighty John Quinn and Klondyke Kate

Here’s something you thought/possibly hoped you’d never see: Jimmy Greaves in a pink spandex leotard, grappling with British wrestling legend Kendo Nagasaki (real name: Peter Thornley, from Stoke-on-Trent) in a “sensational” wrestling bout, recorded for a television special at the London Hippodrome in 1986…

Wrestling’s a funny old game, eh?
