But my favorite is when he explained the psychology of his matches with SBG and how they tried to make it speed vs. power, even though "in reality I was far quicker AND stronger than he was." Lol.Backlund picked up a 300 lb+ Hulk Hogan in Japan and the Spectrum in 1980 with one arm, so he might be right.

I have no doubt that he's right. Backlund had a powerlifter physique, SBG had a bodybuilder physique aided by chemicals. 

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
