Bob Backlund Jimmy Snuka WWE interview

7 Dec, 2012

Snuka gives his thoughts on his rivalry with Backlund:

I’m not a glory guy or anything like that but it was such a great pleasure for me to wrestle Bob Backlund the champion at the time. He was such an awesome guy and such a great champion and it was such a privilege to be able to wrestle him so early on in my WWF career in a title match at Madison Square Garden. Jumping off the cage at the Garden you couldn’t even hear yourself, I loved it so much, things like that just stick in your heart.
