Backlund was a better wrestler, but Bruno was a better worker.

Bruno wins fairly easy for 70's, he was on top for many for years of the decade than Bob. Though I enjoyed al lot of Bob's stuff at the end of the decade.

Bruno wins.

If you go 80s it's Backlund but for the 1970s you gotta go with Bruno.

Note that AWA fans trying to knock Bruno out here. Bockwinkle fears Bruno !!!!!

You stated it better that time. The best known wrestler of Bruno's time was probably Andre The Giant.

and when they meet in the final four or finals we can go back and forth...but for now Bruno is going to win this bracket so stop interfering with your provocative commentary Claw...

Speaking as one of the AWA guys, I find myself a lot more annoyed by the unwarranted gushing over Backlund than the deserved respect for Bruno.

Backlund was champ from 78-on, but before that was relatively inconsequential in the overall wrestling scheme of things (I know, Missouri title, etc...but really...). Bruno held his title until 71, then got it back in 73, and held it until 77. After that he was still a big player/hero in the WWWF right until the end of the decade. No contest here. Bruno in a walk.
