I remember a Benny Hill sketch in the sixties when he was a wrestler and the gag was that he chatted through the bout with his opponent, planning a night at the pub and talking about their wives. This fed the rumour that wrestling was fixed and also showed "how they do it."
Then we hear wrestlers now openly telling us of chats during bouts. McManus told Bob Kirkwood that there was too much heat so he would have to change the plan and be disqualified. And Nagasaki telling us how Kellett told him to throw him through the ropes as he was going home. Plenty of other instances, too.
But I have to confess, in all my years, I never saw them talking to each other. And I was looking out for it.
What are your memories? Was I particularly blind?
