On The Mat on NZ On Screen!

Episodes of the legendary kiwi wrestling show On The Mat are now available through NZ On Screen, and Tammy Davis (a.k.a. Munter from Outrageous Fortune) got into a time-machine and headed back to 1979 to make a promotional video which can be seen beyond this link!

 

 

Tonight on NZ On Screen - Promo 1979 from NZ On Screen on Vimeo.

 

On The Mat  ran from 1975 until 1983, and each half-hour episode featured wrestling matches and promos from larger-than-life wrestlers from both New Zealand and overseas.  Rick Martel, King Curtis, Samoan Joe and Brute Miller (before he became a Bushwacker) were amongst the professional wrestling legends featured on the show, while Steve Rickard provided the play-by-play commentary.

Two of On The Mat's fondly-remembered episodes can now be viewed from the NZ On Screen website, and keep checking back for as more become available!
