It’s the Punjabi Prison match play set!

First, for those of you who won’t know what a Punjabi Prison match is, I will copy and paste from the Wikipedia description:

The Punjabi Prison match, named after the Punjab state that The Great Khali (the match’s ‘founder’) is billed from, consists of two large bamboo cages. The first being four sided and standing 16 feet (4.8 m) tall, while the second has eight sides and stands 20 feet (6 m) surrounding the first.[79]

The inner cage has a four foot (1.2 m) by four foot door on each of its sides, with a referee standing by to open them at a wrestler’s request. Each door may only be opened once and is only allowed to remain open for sixty seconds, after which it is padlocked. Should all four doors end up locked before the wrestlers escape, they are forced to climb out over the top, where the bamboo is fashioned into spikes. Between the two cages are sometimes placed two tables, on which are weapons (both “medieval” and “bamboo” variations of standard wrestling weapons). Once a wrestler has escaped the first cage, he must climb over and out of the second cage, with the first wrestler having both of their feet touch the arena floor is the winner of the match.

There have been a grand total of two Punjabi Prison matches (Big Show Vs. Undertaker at Great American Bash 2006 and Batista Vs. The Great Khali at No Mercy 2007).

Both matches were of course absolutely awful.

So why would any kid possibly want to buy this to recreate them?!

They wouldn’t.

But if you want to buy one, you can get it right here!

    False. There was a third – Jinder Mahal vs Randy Orton at Battleground 2017. It wasn’t any better than the first two.
