This is a title match from the early eighties. Garvin delays his entrance, keeping the champ waiting, signing autographs till the challenger struts in, accompanied by his valet Sunshine. The stills capture only a sliver of the drama--and Jimmy's groans as Kevin twists and squeezes have to be heard to be appreciated.
Young pro wrestlers should study all the Garvin-Von Erich bouts for their economy of motion and force. These are textbook examples of how to craft character within a match. If neither man had ever cut a promo, you could still see the contrasts in values, attitudes, and motivations just in the ring action. Without commentators, you can read the mounting drama from move to move. The stripped-down theater is all the more gratifying because the men actually know how to grapple, too.
