The Most Epic Backyard Wrestling You’ll Ever See

This video was actually posted to Youku last year, but neither I nor Deadspin editor Brian Hickey had seen it, so we decided to go with it as the opening fight today in Deadspin’s ongoing series Tuesday Night Fights. I don’t know what else to say except it’s amazing and epic and ridiculous and never, ever try this at home.

The WWE has a fair number of fans in China, by the way, several of whom post all of its shows to video-sharing platforms here. An episode of Raw will usually draw at least 100,000 views.

WWE taped a house show of Smackdown in Shanghai in August, featuring some pretty good matches.

      Awesome. “Most Epic” in China, maybe. Where are the ladder, folding chairs (round seat bottoms a la Hong Kong)? Still loved many of the finishing moves with Chinese characteristics; so did that guy who kept watching in the background.

      All would be forgiven if these guys did a flying elbow off a cow. Internet, please make it happen.
