How’s this for a nostalgia trip? I remember way back in 1981 when Championship Wrestling on Saturday afternoons in Boston used to just have squash matches, and then one week they announced that Rick Martel (half of a popular tag team at the time with Tony Garea) would face … Baron Mikel Scicluna. Yes, he from “the Isle of Malta.”
Never mind that Scicluna hardly ever won a match at the period in time. He was one of those upper-tier jobbers because in 1970s, he had some star power and at one point in 1972 even held the WWWF (then WWF, now WWE Unified) Tag Team Title.
Anyway, competitive matches were so few and far between on free TV in those days that Martel vs. Scicluna actually was an exciting event. Nowadays, it would be a channel changer.
For the record, Martel won by delivering a sunset flip onto Scicluna from the apron over the top rope. Even that move as a finisher smacks of bygone days.
