It is useful to reconsider what has been said before.
Generally, people only know the Lee account of what happened.
Not so much, who won, because no one wins a fight, in the long run.
But what happened and what the people were actually like, what state of awareness were they in at the time.
It is true that wong jack man was typically seen as a villian, defending the chinese communities dogmatic demand that no non-chinese should be shown chinese martial arts.
In the movie Dragon, the Bruce Lee story, He is really shown as dishonest and vicious.
Where during the fight, even after he lost he did a cheap shot and kicked Lee's back out, when in reality, his back injury came from lifting weights.
I can imagine if I was wong jack man, as they used his name in the movie, and I saw that, knowing how I really was, and what happened, and knowing people would see that and just believe that is how it was.
The director did say, he did those changes for dramatic purposes, but if the fight was just in response to Bruce Lee's challenge, then the whole premise is fiction.
It just would likely be so surreal to be misrepresented for decades, if things didn't happen exactly as Bruce and Linda Lee said.
