    Bruno is a regular visitor to Ricos in the North Hills and he is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Always patient with people looking for a picture. I watched him wrestle in the early years and I’m glad I got a chance to meet him.

    HE will be rememberd for a great build, excellent wrestler and all around good man i wish the WWE would have kept their word and stuck to the old school format that was the sole reason why the living legend agreed to be inducted BUT Once again certain individuals with the WWE have not kept their promises (WHAT ELSE IS NEW) …..LONG MAY YOU LIVE CHAMP(BRUNO SAMMARTINO)

    Dear Bruno, As a little girl growing up in Altoona, during the 60s and early 70s, you caught my attention, as I begged my parents to take me each time you came to the Jaffe Mosque . Although, of course, your physique clearly identified a strong person, I somehow felt your kindness and gentleness as you walked to the ring to face your opponents, like Killer Kawalski. I am so glad I have a chance to thank you for giving me so much enjoyment and an understanding of your sport. I wish you a long and healthy life.

    As a kid growing up you was always my here. I first started watching you on Studio Wrestling and i became hooked on wrestling ever since. You are still my hero and always will be. I watched you wrestle in the Civic Arena many times. I also have a kids wrestling belt autographed by you and a autographed picture of you wrestling Stan Stasiak that i bought from a wrestling store in Allentown , Pa. God Bless.

    Bruno Sammartino was actually 40 years old when Stan Hansen broke his neck with that botched bodyslam (not his lariat); nonetheless, he certainly possessed enough courage to get back in shape for that grudge cage match. He sold out Madison Square Garden 1987 times and even wrestled in the Cow Palace in Daly City against the U.S. (San Francisco version) champion Ray “The Crippler” Stevens. Sammartino should be inducted in the Madison Square Garden Hall Of Fame (if they have one).

    Used to watch in the old days when Haystacks Calhoun was still around. My son likes to watch the current edition and I see it once in awhile. He asked me the other day if I still watch it. I told him to give me an update. He was happy to do so. One more bonding agent.

      When i was 12, and when i started watching wrestling on TV, the program was called ” Studio Wrestling ” It had it great wrestlers, some great local wrestlers out of Pittsburgh, Pa. The one man who was my hero growing up was none other than Bruno Sammartino.
