I'm sad to hear that ... just curious how that was celebrated as Backlund was Vince Sr's hand-picked champion and the key to their future business ... they had to make a big deal of it but the finish was so flat with the foot on the ropes, could have treated it as a controversy more than a celebration ... and what Bruno had to say about it as well

There was no Bruno on commentary at that point. Vince did the TV solo still in early-mid 1978.
