And finally…

A new documentary, CATCH: The Hold Not Taken, has been released by Riverhorse Productions. The documentary focuses on the Catch-as-Catch-Can style of chain wrestling that was practised by such legendary grapplers as Frank Gotch, Farmer Burns and George Hackenschmidt, as well as later luminaries like Billy Robinson, William Regal and former Olympian Dan Gable.

The documentary focuses on Billy Riley’s Gym in Wigan, the “Snakepit”, where guys like Dynamite Kid and Karl Gotch were trained and is an in-depth look at this almost forgotten aspect of wrestling.

The DVD costs £14.99 and is available from the Riverhorse Website.
