2. Ivan Koloff
Those who think Brock Lesnar defeating The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX happened to be the most shocking outcome of a match in Pro-Wrestling History, have certainly never experienced Ivan Koloff defeating long time WWWF World Heavyweight Champion Bruno Sammartino in the world famous Madison Square Garden on January 18, 1971.
Those live in the arena reported that the entire place was in shock for several minutes and you could almost literally hear a needle drop.
NOBODY had expected such a result after Bruno was the sovereign World Champion for so many years.
“The Russian Bear” Ivan Koloff is actually a canadian with the name of Oreal Perras, who now lives in Winterville, North Carolina.
