Bruno Sammartino to the WWE HOF

Well it appears that hell has frozen over in Titan Towers. It has been reported that former two time WWWF (now WWE) World Heavyweight Champion Bruno Sammartino has accepted an induction to the WWE Hall of Fame. The ceremony is to be held in Madison Square Gardens, the site of Sammartino’s greatest triumphs and a facility he sold out numerous times.

This has to come as a shock as for years, Sammartino has spoken against the WWE (and Vince McMahon in particular) and swore in countless interviews that he would never accept the invite. Jean Paul Levesque (AKA: Triple H) had made overtures to Bruno over the past year, but realistically it was not expected that the legend would change his mind. Apparently, Triple H is an even better negotiator than we expected!

Sammartino was #2 on our Notinhalloffame.com wrestling list and we are pleased to be removing him soon. As discussed with the previous three inductees, the revisions will take place after Wrestlemania. We can say now that the induction of Bruno Sammartino legitimizes the WWE Hall of Fame in our eyes, and we are sure the eyes of many wrestling fans around the world.
