The Goodie Wins

Referee Nelson Hill got a bit fed up with being tossed around the ring as if he was one of the participants, and disqualified the "baddie", South African Willem Hall, in the professional wrestling match against John Da Silva earlier this month. Da Silva had been tossed out of the ring and each time he attempted to return, Hall kicked him out. The end result was that while Da Silva was extricating himself from chairs and spectators (above), Hall got himself disqualified. Before this happened, there were some entertaining moments during the fight. Each wrestler made spectacular flips over the ropes to the floor about 6 ft below and a lot of good wrestling was seen. At right, Hall attempts to detach Da Silva's foot from the ankle, but below, Da Silva has his revenge. Da Silva, however, was on the receiving end of this unusual hold (below right).
