This was Wrestling at its finest. The 1950's, 60's and 70's were the golden days of Wrestling. It was so popular on television that there were only a handful of shows that rivaled Wrestling in popularity. This excellent series has 12 episodes in total. Icons of Wrestling recaptures the excitement of those years with interviews, behind-the-scenes commentary by the wrestlers themselves along with never-before-seen interviews with their family, friends and peers, and also clips from some of their most memorable matches.
