Plot In this Columbia sports short (Columbia production number 6801), sportscaster Bill Stern attends and narrates a professional wrestling match in Los Angeles. The match is between "good guy" wrestler Antonio Rocco and the villain, Don Jonathan. Per the usual scripted professional wrestling match, Jonathan kicks Rocco all over the ring in the first half, and then Rocco recovers and wins. A mid-fifties look at professional wrestling that proves, other than special effects, nothing has changed in professional wrestling in the past fifty years, nor, for that matter, in the 50 years preceding this short. Bottom line: P. T. (There's a sucker born...) Barnum is proven right once again.... search for Columbia World of Sports: Assault and Mat-tery on IMDb
