Re: Was Bruno Sammartino that good?
Bruno sold out the garden more than any other wrestler, that includes Hogan. So he was the Hogan/StoneCold/Rock of his era. Heck Vinnie Mac even managed to lure him back to WWF in 1985-1986 in order to help boost the ticket sales. Considering Hogan was in his prime almost, that is quite a saying.
As for in ring skill. Back in the day, a promotor would never allow a guy who could not take care of himself to be presented as champion.
Bruno may not have been the technical marvel of Dynamite Kid, or Kurt Angle. But he still surpassed them with lightyears. He was over as crazy, was way above avarage in the ring, had that IT factor, and the most important factor he put shit loads of asses to the arena seats, which is what this business is all about. So Back in the day, Bruno was the total package.
What a horrible night to have a curse
