312. Brutus Beefcake (w/ Luscious Johnny V) vs. David Sammartino (w/ Bruno Sammartino)

Timeline:
WrestleMania
March 31, 1985
Madison Square Garden
New York City, NY

This match is preceded by unquestionably the worst WrestleMania promo of all time. Johnny V tries to sell his charge, but when the mic turns to Beefcake, all he can do is break the initial awkward silence with a much more awkward snort.

The New York crowd loooooves Bruno. The match takes forever to get in to the action which is practically all rest holds. A vertical suplex from Sammartino to Beefcake feels like a high spot. The match ends up just being a vehicle for a schmoz with Bruno involved for a double DQ.

A sincere waste of all of our time.
