I saw this 'mini-doc'/'propaganda' from a Catch Wrestling source on my FB. I actually looked in to this years ago when I wrote the Helio Gracie profile for the other site.

My understanding is that Rufino was calling them bitches, which they took as a 'street challenge', so they showed up at Rufino's work to call him out. One thing led to another, and a scrap broke out between Carlos and Rufino. Most likely Helio grabbed the cash box and cracked Rufino a couple times, and then Carlos shoulder locked Rufino and tore his shoulder.

Funny to see people freak out about the Gracies being thugs. Oswaldo and George were straight up Gangster.

The real story is that Carlos was banging/impregnating the wife of the president of the National Bank of Brazil, so Carlos and Helio were pardoned by the President of Brazil after spending a week in jail. The 'ground-swell of public support for a pardon' is BS.

I remember hearing this story.... Funny thing is this, I know that there is a lot of hate for the Gracie's and their legacy... But the OLD school, the original grandmasters (Carlos, Helio, Oswaldo, George)... These guys had that healthy hate/respect for each other, and were ALL gangsters.... Those stories of original gym raids, the street/beach fights, all of that stuff.... Old school BJJ was NO JOKE. Nowadays I got families arguing with me because their kid doesn't get a stripe on the belt.... If those pussies only knew what it was like..... I should beat the hell out of dad's and fuck the mom's LOL

show up at the dad's work, beat him with a cash register.

Hespect.

And for the record, George and Oswaldo were the OGs.
Carlos got rich on stud fees for knocking up the wife of the National Bank president.
