Default GWOAT Round 1: David Von Erich vs. Jimmy Snuka

Two great legends, one in a curse family the other in a historic wrestling family as well..Dre can tell you more but in his Era Von Erich was a true legend in Texas Wrestling..Snuka is known for his splash off the cage in the WWE..both men are from different eras and this is truely a matchup of legends. Think about this one closely folks.

I've seen a Superfly Match on a old video, glad my uncle still had it, Snuka was cool.

I always liked the Superfly... he gets my vote. I think Von Erich was before my time.

I don't even really know much about David. He was the first brother to wrestle, and he was pretty hot shit back in 78/79, but I was only 2 years old, so it's not like I was watching then. He died in 84 in japan at only 25. I have seen so many more memorable moments with snuka, so many moments that have impacted the sport today and that live on. Snuka may not have been the greatest grapler or whatever, but he was a great showman and entertainer. Maybe Kerry would've got the nod in this round over Snuka, but I just don't feel that David has made as lasting impression on wrestling and on the fans.

To me Snuka his so over rated and the hype has shown nothing for the most part of his career with the highlight being the leap off the steal cage onto muraco. David Von Erich takes my vote.

David Von Erich was clearly the most talented Von Erich and was prodicted to do big things Jimmy Snuka's main claim to fame is jumping from the cage in a match that he lost. No one wants to remember how stupid that match ended. with Superfly punching Muraco out of the cage for the victory. David accomplished more in 5 years then Snuka did in a lifetime. Though that one moment is all I remember of Snuka, and the moment when Piper broke the coconut over his head. But I don't remember any great match's or any worthy fueds from him. Von Erich had an epic battle with the Freebirds to start right off. I wasn't alive half his career and I still as a child was told to get the WCCW tapes of the Von Erich's. Watching David in the ring and how the audience reacted to him, was magical. Wathcing Snuka in the ring is meh....I don't know less then Greatest worthy. I didn't mind his fued with Piper and Orton, but that is all he really had.

David in his breif time captured:
N.W.A. Texas Tag Team titles;
NWA American Tag Team title;
Texas Heavyweight title (6);
NWA Southern Heavyweight title;
North American Tag Team title w/Dory Funk
Florida Television title;
Missouri Heavyweight title;
NWA World Tag Team title;

And Jimmy over his entire career held:
(NWA) World Tag Team Championship (2)
(NWA) United States Championship
ECW World Championship (2)
ECW World Television Championship


Like Ice said Snuka to me is waay overrated, and no one can really gives a shit about him besides the match that he lost and leaped from the cage. That is memrable, but no more memerable then Savage and Liz getting back together.

DVE gets my vote,
