I believe it's a "spinner": Spin it fast, and the images of the two wrestlers combine, to look like they're wrestling.

Spinners are usually mounted in a loop to make spinning it easier. I'm guessing the dints at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock are what remains of the loop mount.

I had no idea of the existence of these "spinners". Really interesting.
