The Iron-men.

Prompt  ….

PHOTO PROMPT © Hardy Carroll
Before WWE, before the padded rings and beyond boxing – there were pehelwans (wrestlers). These gigantic and humble men with elephant-like appetites can rightfully be called the real-ironmen.
During 1950s everybody backed King-Kong and just as he thought DS had given up , the latter picked Kong from his neck and dramatically choke-held him in the air, eventually making him scream for help. The referee intervened and DS  literally threw Kong out of the ring and claimed the title.
DS was a successful actor, member of the upper-house and a revered figure for his role as Hanuman in Sagar’s Ramayana –serial.

Words ~ 101
WWE ~ World wrestling entertainment; Hanuman ~ the revered Monkey-God of Hindus.
Thanks for the prompt Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. SHALOM.
