CLASSIC BRUNO INTERVIEW JUST A FEW WEEKS AFTER HE LOST THE WWWF TITLE

Posted February 4th, 2013 by Bill Apter

:On January 18, 1971 the world was stunned with WWWF World Champion Bruno Sammartino lost the title to Ivan Koloff at Madison Square Garden. Amazingly though Sammartino saw this as a God-send. He had held the title since May 1963 after thrashing “Nature Boy” Buddy Rogers in just 61 seconds at MSG (the “old” MSG where the ’71 match was at the “new” MSG) and needed a break to spend time with his family and to let his body heal. This interview was just a few months after the title loss — during his return to MSG — and I was there with my tape recorder and got this exclusive interview!”–Bill Apter Read more.

APTER HOURS: TWO OPINIONS OF ALL-TIME FAVORITES TOP 10 LIST–PART I

Posted November 15th, 2011 by 1Wrestling News Team

Since I attended the AWE Night of Legends Pay-Per-View last month, I have really started to watch videos and documentaries on wrestling from the 90s and early 2000s, when I watched it weekly. Although I do not watch it now, wrestling was a huge part of my childhood.

One of the writers I worked with at Philly Sports Port, Dan Cymerman, also has a passion for wrestling and he and I have decided to choose our top 10 wrestlers from that time period. Who made both of our lists? You can find out by checking here every day as I release two of our picks until we reach number one. So let’s start things off with our #10 and #9…

JIM CORNETTE DETAILS THE ANATOMY OF “THE MONTREAL SCREWJOB”
