It had to be between Sammartino and Race. I went for Race.

Bro, you said you didn't know who RIC FLAIR was until 2005 so you're making a list of stars from the 60s and 70s?

Anyway, from the poll I will take Bruno because nobody drew more money than him and he was an icon of his time, not only in the business. Besides, you put names like Mil Mascaras who is a legend in Mexico and not Inoki, Rikidozan and El Santo? Who were even bigger in their countries, including Mexico.

Thesz, George, Superstar, Andre etc and who I mentioned above are all contenders. That's if you do it from the 60s and not go back even more to guys like Frank Gotch and Jim Londos.
