Default GWOAT Round 1: Bruno Sammartino vs. Rowdy Roddy Piper

Sammartino, a great world champion in fact holding the belt for years on end, and in his prime was definitely hard to beat. The Rowdy One a tough competitor in the 80's fighting arch rival Hogan at Wrestlemania 1. Also put on a great match against Bret Hart for the IC title. Now a days Piper can be seen occasionaly on TNA, while Sammartino could return to the WWE if him and Vince could ever get along. Decisions Decisions.

oh god, Bruno in all reality, could very well win this tournament. It's just that he's been forgotten, or he hasn't been discovered by a lot of fans. Ppl complain that HHH's title reign is too long lol, Bruno held the fucker for 14 YEARS. Compared to Bruno, pipers just an overblown loudmouth who never shuts up. Piper was pretty funny though, and back in the 80's, Roddy was just a great part of the classic wwf. His pipers pit, his character, even his moderate at best ring skills helped him come across as a legitamite wresler and one of the most enduring personalities in wrestling. But when you look at Bruno's past, you'll see Piper can't hold a candle to the man that pretty much defined wrestling for 30 years. Before there was Flair, there was Bruno. Nearly 2 decades of wwwf was centered around Sammartino. He had huge fueds with other greats like zbyszko, volkoff, Koloff etc. and eventually dropping the title to Billy Graham, who was basically the blueprint for Hogan. Hell, Bruno even went over Piper.

Now, the problem is, I've never even seen a lot of these matches. I've seen a couple grainy bits, and I've seen clips and pieces that I could put together, or caught here and there, and I figure I'm like most fans who grew up in the 80's or later in this regard. Just basically, who the hell is Bruno Sammartino? Most everything I know about him I've garnered from wrestling history books. And I've come to respect and admire him a lot just through that alone. Hopefully one of the historians here who have seen more of his matches can elaborate on him. Also, before you vote for Piper because he's the only name you recognize and you think Sammartino is some indy jobberr, read about him here and here

Piper has Bruno beat on the mic, and he did have a couple of good matches, but Sammartino is a legend that held the title for a while and i really want to see him matchup with some other wrestlers in next couple of rounds so bruno gets my pick.
