Before fireworks and intro music, there was pro wrestling that featured the wrestling, not the sizzle. Back when the action happened in the ring... The IWA.
The IWA was the first wrestling promotion to have a television program nationwide. Promoters Eddie Eihorn and Pedro Martinez put together a huge talent pool that would provide a national and international promotion with more stars than any other promotion had ever done. The list of stars in this first of many to come DVD series is like a who's who of the 1970's wrestling superstars.
The IWA spared no expense to give the fans only the best. Jack Reynolds was a well noted and household name for his coverage of professional wrestling. Tex McKenzie not only wrestled, but also filled in as the color analyst. Ring announcing was handled by Rick Martin, who in real life was son of promoter, Pedro Martinez, his given name was Ronnie Martinez. They all provided professional insight and knowledge of the king of sports, professional wrestling.
