Yesterday we exclusively revealed a two hour plus long AWA video set to arrive to WWE Network as this week’s WWE Hidden Gems addition. In good news for WWE Network subscribers, we are actually receiving two more gems! These gems come from 1954 Texas Rasslin’ and the AWA in 1973.
Both represent different kind of competition. First, there is the 1950’s match up being a bizarre karate exhibition from Phil Silva who takes on four other men. Meanwhile the AWA addition is a mere 43 seconds long with Billy Graham taking on a less-than-great opponent, The Great Scott, in an arm wrestling contest. These uploads join the near two and a half hour AWA video which will feature eighteen matches.
Below is information for the two extra WWE Hidden Gems coming this week:
Texas Rasslin’ 01/12/1954 – The Power of Karate [Duration: 00:18:19]Witness the devastating effects of Karate Wrestling in this bizarre contest from the 1950’s featuring Phil Silva.
AWA 08/25/1973 – Arm Wrestling Armageddon [Duration: 00:00:43]It’s a battle of the biceps as Superstar Billy Graham takes on The Great Scott in an arm wrestling contest.
