Here is just 1964 ALONE for Bruno, and keep in mind he kept up this schedule for a pretty much a decade.



Research credit (as well as link for those that need to stop being marks for VM Punk's bullshit promos):

Punk couldn't carry Bruno's jockstrap, and I am not even a fan of Bruno. Didn't like his style personally, but come on, man! The guy busted his butt to a far greater degree than modern wrestlers do.

Well said. It's just pure ignorance and laziness. If Punk says something or even alludes to something then the sheep will eat it up and take it for fact.

Bruno pretty much set the foundation for the WWWF and established it more or less as a nationally recognizable entity for Hulk Hogan to come in the 80s and take it to a whole new level. Then come the 90s and everyone is sick and tired of the goody goody 2-D face and they start to favor the heels. Therefore characters like The Rock and Steve Austin come in and flourish because they represented the unrest and rebellious feel of the times, taking the company to new heights as well.

Now with the times, wrestling is almost a complete afterthought, and it sucks to say but its true. With the way pop culture and sensibilities have changed, it can't facilitate the type of investment the fans can place in the product. WWE isn't helping things either with the way they book and write their shows dating back to 2007. But its a sign of the times, and sooner or later if the fans don't completely tune out the show, then another change will come. Everything happens in a circle.

Punk sold 15 000 tickets in Chicago at his peak of popularity 2011. Bruno sold 50 000 in New York!

Punk has never been described as a draw. Bruno is legendary for being a big draw.

Sometimes I just wish we didnt KNOW so much so such a comparison could be made, watching The Warrior beat Hogan was one of the most amazing things EVER, but now we know oh too much.
