A wrestler called Bad Luck Brannigan (Richard Reeves) is taking out one
opponent after the next by some special move that sends them to hospital,
and since everybody suspects foul play, Perry White (John Hamilton),
editor in chief of the Daily Planet, invites college wrestler Wayne
Winchester (Malcolm Mealey) to study Brannigan's moves - but Winchester
can't come up with much other than the sonclusion that Brannigan actually
isn't even that good a wrestler.
So Clark Kent (George Reeves) takes the matter into his own hands, uses
superhearing to listen in on a conversation between Brannigan and his
manager Murray (Herb Vigran) and learns that Murray is holding swami Ramm
(Tito Renaldo) captive, an illegal alien who knows everything about the
human pressurepoints and how to use them in wrestling. As Superman, Kent
pays the swami a visit and lets him teach him everything about how to
avoid attacks on the pressurepoints, then he teaches Winchester everything
he has learned and has him challenge Brannigan - and wouldn't you know it,
Winchester virtually clobbers Brannigan.
Murray and Brannigan think the swami has betrayed them and want their
revenge, but Superman comes to his rescue and sees to it that the rogue
wrestler and his manager get their just desserts.
Wrestlers who have swamis in their employ - this is of course stuff
that seems to come right out of a 1950's comicbook ... which makes perfect
sense since Superman is first and foremost a comicbook character. So
expect this episode to be campy fun.
