Nick Bockwinkel vs Verne Gagne part 1 (1979)

In honor of Verne's passing, here's the first part of a classic match between Verne and the also legendary Nick Bockwinkel. It's sourced from a Japanese source, but the commentary isn't necessary to enjoy the match- the sure sign of two great performers!

I really enjoy Nick's matches with anyone he's against, be it as a face or heel. This is just a pleasure to watch since both combatants are of such high quality. Verne picked Nick as his successor, and it was a wise choice.
