I didn't think there was this much steroids made. Snuka is markedly different than in his WWF debut three years later. Two out of three falls. This is from that huge NWA Houston dump from a couple of years ago. Definitely a cool match.

They look bigger because these Houston matches were all fucked up. Tharpe rendered the masters in widescreen HD instead of regular old school full screen SD. So everybody looks thicker than they should. I can show you the same match that was rendered properly in SD. They still look big, but Snuka looks to be his normal self. Patera, on the other hand, wasn't too far out from his participation in the Superstars competition or whatever strongman deal he did and was as huge as I can remember him in wrestling until his comeback in '87 after prison. THAT was the biggest Patera I ever remember seeing.

You didn't have bottles with a crudely drawn horse and cow. I think it would have been possible for a guy with the genetic makeup of Snuka to get that large. But what you said explains why he was moving so smoothly and the insane elevation he got when he took to the air. Now I'm disappointed lol.
