Like these guys, Jacob. They battled each other (as well as lions, tigers, and other wild animals) back in the time of the Roman Empire. It was the sport of the day.

Thanks! That's really interesting! I loved this movie very much, even if it is not 100% accurate.

Beheading is a quick death, though. The severe injuries would leave them in horrible pain, and they'd eventually die anyway.....but it might take days or weeks of agony. By beheading them, they thought they'd spare them the pain.

Isn't Joe Lando a gladiator? I'm always so glad to see him. He would do very nicely in a role like that. Hmmmm ....yes that would be very tasty to see.
