From the glory days of Australian World Championship Wrestling from Festival Hall in Melbourne circa 1973.

Sprios Arion and Abdullah the Butcher are in a match where the centre rope has been taken out because the "Butcher's Axe" from the centre rope has been banned in 17 countries. Arion gives Abdullah the Butcher the "Atmoic Drop" but couldn't get to the count of three. Abdullah the Butcher then gives Arion a knee "right in the bread basket" followed by twelve head butts and then a "Butcher's Axe". Arion gets Abdullah the Butcher in a headlock but then wait, Abdullah the Butcher swings Arion around and knocks referee Eddie Swan to the canvas.

While Swan is still down, Abdullah's manager, Big Bad John throws a chair into the ring and Abdullah gets up on the chair and comes down on Arion with the "Butcher's Axe". Referee Swan gets up and disqualifies Abduallah the Butcher who responds by giving Swan a couple of "Butcher's Axes". Then Big Bad John comes into the ring and whacks Arion with his cane and then Waldo Von Eric comes in and it is three against one. King Curtis then comes followed by Mark Lewin, both fully clothed. Commentator Jack Little ends with "believe me, it's all out war".
