This video is a tribute to the notorious, yet influential genre of pro-wrestling known as “death match wrestling.” Sometimes called “hardcore,” “extreme” and even “garbage,” this brand of bloody and violent entertainment has its roots in Texas, Memphis and Puerto Rican pro-wrestling and it would influence ECW and nearly all pro-wrestling that followed.
