R2-D2 and C-3PO Fought in a Japanese Wrestling Match in 1979

Here's a little golden nugget of awesomeness that I never knew existed! This is a video from 1979 that features two wrestlers dressed as Star Wars droids R2-D2 and C-3PO for a tag-team match for an All Japan Pro Wrestling event. This video is just as strange and fantastic as you'd expect it to be. It's days like this when I love the internet. It's always cool to see the different ways that Star Wars has influenced the world. Who would have thought it managed to make its way into Japanese wrestling?!
