That match was everything that Incredibly Strange Wrestling aspired to. It was everything that it should be. The card quickly degenerated. As with the first show, Johnny Legend and his band provided a portion of the evening’s musical entertainment with their usual covers of the theme songs to American International ’50s exploitation flicks such as High School Caesar and I Was a Teenage Werewolf.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was all the rage in martial arts in the mid-1990s and was by far the most homoerotic fighting style ever developed. So much of it relied on this defensive position called “the guard,” which entailed lying on your back, wrapping your legs around your opponent’s midsection, thus stunting his attack.
