Did Sammartino bust a coconut over Snuka's head? Sammartino busted a nut and we got David. Awful.

Bruno.

Seen a lot more of Piper's work but from the little I've seen of Bruno's work and mostly read about his career, gave Bruno the nod.

Both were good in the ring and give Piper the nod in terms of character/gimmick but Bruno edges him a lot in more areas.

Bruno. He was far more important to the business. Sure, this was before my time, but I know what kind of impact he had.

Absolutely. I think it says something about how the internet opens up people to a wealth of information, and how that travels. I think recency is going to become less potent when judging wrestlers in the future.

Then you realize even though the athleticism (other than Japan I guess) wasn't at the current level, everything else was much better pre 1990.
