SSBG was an awful wrestler, and honestly could have been a lot better with a little work. But there was absolutely no doubt at all that he was the biggest star of that day in the WWWF and he carried himself as such. If it's true that he requested to feud with Maivia because he felt it would draw well (and to pay back Maivia for being good to him on the way up), then you have to give SSBG a lot of credit because he did draw money fighting Maivia and the High Chief probably never earned a higher payday than the headline gig at MSG. I didn't watch this feud live, but it honestly still holds up today. Well, its as ridiculous as all the feuds that started where the indian wrestler had his headdress ripped to shreds, but still...it worked then and would work now.

I loved that they got right to the point. It didn't take 10 minutes to move the story forward. I am surprised I don't recall this. I always liked the 70's version of SSBG but more for his presentation than his wrestling ability.

Post-attack, in 2017, Graham would get cheered, Maivia booed.
