Title: Bruno Sammartino the REAL King of Kings!!!
Post by: indie-lad on August 13, 2012, 02:37:40 AM
The guy is so full of respect and integrity that it's refreshing to hear. A simply amazing human being who lived an amazing life. Probably the strongest man in the world and he was completely natural. I love the guy.

Best wrestling shoot interview ever!! If anyone watches this I'm sure you will have respect for this guy, no doubt.

You guys are in dream land. He took some things in his time. Geto Mongol said he would eat dog shit if  it made him bigger. His sons also used juice. I know about the situation pretty well.

Not Bruno

Believe what you want, but there was a reason why Bruno was so respected.

Nobody fucked with the man...

Those numbers are HIGHLY suspect.

First, I doubt he was drug-free, and second, those are STILL friggin' nutty poundages, even for a dude gassing. Particularly the 565 bench. Such a press would have put him on top of the bench-press world at the time, easy.

Bruno was all natural...educate yourself.

I have not watched the video but my understanding was/is that he was the first to bench press 500lbs. He also was beaten by Paul Anderson for the olympic team, maybe 1956ish?

Two hour clip?  Not even if Rocco is ass banging three Russain teen whores.  Fortress is right, those numbers can't be verified.

You feel there's more money to be made at powerlifting meets than packing Madison Square Garden 50 times?
