Snuka is a guest on Piper’s Pit to discuss his early days in the territorial wrestling promotionsand wrestling Piper.
You know what, bro? One thing was good. When me and you was in the ring. You’re beautiful mind and mine combined with yours… we were both steering.
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.
