After decades of struggling to prove his worthiness, Bruno Sammartino will finally have the honor of being enshrined in the WWE Hall of Fame alongside such wrestling luminaries as Koko B. Ware, Pete Rose and Mike Tyson.
World Wrestling Entertainment has been staunchly reluctant to induct Sammartino, given that his contributions to professional wrestling pale in comparison to those of stars like Bob Uecker and Drew Cary.
“Bruno has been begging me for years to get inducted,” said Paul “Triple-H” Levesque, who has been openly and vehemently opposed to Sammartino’s induction.
“Finally I was, like, fine — if it will shut him up, then let’s induct Bruno.”
According to wrestling historians, Sammartino enjoyed a brief glimmer of popularity in the 1970s, but never contributed nearly as much to the wrestling business as fellow 2013 Hall of Fame inductee Donald Trump.
