In January of 1980, Larry Zbyszko shocked the WWWF by challenging his mentor, Bruno Sammartino, to a match.

Bruno originally refused the bout but a couple weeks later, gave in and accepted the bout but under special stipulations.

What were those stipulations?

Bruno says he’ll only wrestle defensively, and that he won’t hurt Larry.

It had to be a technical match. (meaning no foul play or anyone getting injured)

Bruno loved Larry like a brother and wouldn't accept his challenge, but relented under the conditions that he would not attempt to beat Larry or hurt him.

The match took place on television in January-February 1980. It was suppose to be a sparring workout session. Bruno embarrassed Larry and Larry lost his temper kicked and pounded Bruno unmercifully culminating in his hitting The Legend with a chair. If you watch closely you can see Bruno blade. This is also after the WWWF. It is in 1980 Wide was gone for nearly a year.

The match was to be a scientific wrestling exhibition.

That it would be only an "Exhibition Match", since his heart wasn't in it, and he loved Zbyszko like a brother.

Yep- he tried to appease his fans (who wanted to see the match), he wanted to appease Larry (who wanted the match) but didn't want to hurt Larry.
 
Didn't work out well.

I seen a local show in Trenton about 6 months after Larry turned heel. He showed up late and came in a side door. When people seen him sneaking in they all started shouting and booing him. Larry was shaking his head and probably saying the price I have to pay to be a heel. Those were the days when fans were not above flattening a tire or busting a windshield.
