Yeah Piotr is likely stronger and far harder to hurt.

It's nice of you to come back and humble yourself.

Doc Sampson wins, Colossus is not beating a gamma-powered hero.

Doc Sampson wins, Colossus is not beating a gamma-powered hero.

Any evidence or reasoning for that? Colossus looked better than She-Hulk the one time I recall them fighting. And he came off indirectly as better than Samson in the issue where various heroes took on the Champion in boxing matches, since Colossus actually qualified to fight the Champion, whereas Samson was disqualified before that stage due to being KOed by one of the training bots.

No, I just enjoy belittling Colossus. 8)

I want to say that Sampson has looked better against the Hulk than I could envision Colossus doing, but I’m just going on vague half-remembered comics.

I agree with you on that point. Back in his heyday of the '70s and '80s, Samson had a string of respectable showings against the Hulk, faring better than Colossus, the Thing or She-Hulk generally have. But he was inexplicably ranked lower than the Thing in the mid '80s Handbooks, and I suspect that's had a negative impact on how he's been written ever since.

Those 70s and 80s showing are the only ones of Samson I really remember. I don’t want to open up the Handbook can of worms, but has Samson had any recent notable fights that would suggest he’s not viewed as being at the same level?

Here's that showing against She-Hulk:

A pretty unflattering HtH showing against a shackled Punisher:
http://readcomiconline.to/Comic/Double-Edge/Issue-Alpha?id=112644#12

Punisher knocks Samson out with a relatively small explosive in a follow-up issue (notice how close Castle is standing when he remotely detonates it):
http://readcomiconline.to/Comic/Double-Edge/Issue-Omega?id=112645#20

And now compare how Samson performed against World War Hulk to Thing and Colossus' showings. Not a huge difference, but I'd say they fared marginally better:
