Hmmm, a lot of compelling arguments for Bruno, but I wouldn't count out Austin. He's defeated foes he shouldn't have in the past, so why would this be any different. I'm going against the grain and voting Stone Cold.

I'm voting for Austin for the same reason I voted for Sting. This should not end up looking like a squash.

Steve Austin in his prime would never be booked to go for an hour, so this match would never happen. However, as it is, we have to look at those injuries as a reason that Bruno would be able to win. He'd stay in the early stages long enough to exploit them, and that's that. Bruno wins.

Is any of this actually true? Maybe it is. I don't know for sure. I think a lot of people just assume that any main event match before 1982 went to a 60 minute draw. There were definitely a lot of those kinds of matches way back when but I think that was more an NWA thing. I don't think that was the New York style. Again, I don't know for sure, but I just don't think Bruno was going 60 minutes at the Garden every month. If you want to post some links that show otherwise I'll happily admit I was wrong. And not just a couple examples. You guys make it sound like it was a regular occurrence. I'm not saying Bruno is the wrong choice. Just don't vote for him because you assume he wrestled hour matches all the time because he wrestled in the 60s.

I could find following matches of Bruno Sammartino that went 60 or more minutes:

  • VS Waldo Von Erich at WWWF MSG Show Aug'64 #2 - 81 Minutes
  • VS Gorilla Monsoon at WWWF MSG Show May'64 - 70 Minutes
  • VS Pedro Morales at WWWF Showdown at Shea'72 - 65 Minutes
  • VS Dr. Biff Miller at WWWF MSG Show July'65 - 60 Minutes
  • VS Hans Mortier at WWWF Philadelphia Show Sep'63 #1 - 60 Minutes

He did have matches in 50+ minutes duration with Giant Baba and Nikolai Volkoff. That's all I could find.

I must say that I'm very impressed after reading a lot about Bruno, thanks to WrestleZone Tournament. He was a just a big name for me but I can see why he's so big name in professional wrestling. Selling out MSG arena consistently ain't very easy.

Vote Bruno Sammartino.

Steve Austin brutalizes an out-of-his league Bruno early and often with anything he can get his hands on, wearing the man out with Stunner after Stunner on the road to victory. Vince books the biggest star in his company's history to go over the longest-reigning champ of all time.
