Re: Official WWE Hall Of Fame Discussion Thread

Triple H actually convinced the man, holy crap. Color me surprised. This Hall of Fame is stacked with Foley, Stratus, Backlund and now Sammartino.

So damn great, motherfucker, I've died
What you hearin' now is a paranormal vibe

Re: Official WWE Hall Of Fame Discussion Thread

Bruno agreed? That's a big deal. No one more fitting to headline a HOF in MSG. It's going to be great to see and especially for him who is a very private person and wasn't in the public eye for so many years to get this big ovation from the fans. Going to be a great moment to watch.

Not a Bruno fan, but nice to see him finally going in.

Dafuq!? Wow this is most excellent news. A massive deal for WWE to get Bruno to agree to this, considering he always seemed so dead set against it.

Re: Official WWE Hall Of Fame Discussion Thread

WOW!!!

They might as well leave it at that now. Sammartino, Foley, Backlund, Trish. Anymore would be overkill.

Give them adequate time for acceptance speeches.

Bruno Sammartino going into the Hall of Fame is surprising to me. Major props to Triple H. Now the Hall of Fame is legitimate.

Quote:
WWE executive Triple H, real name Paul Levesque, spoke to ESPN about the announcement of Bruno Sammartino as the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame class headliner, and below are several quotes from the interview:

"From a legitimacy standpoint, itís important for us to get Bruno in," Levesque said. ďHeís one of the biggest names there has ever been in the business. So for us to not have him in there, for the legitimacy of the whole thing, it was a major issue. For me, the more important thing was that nobody deserves to be recognized for being a big star and paving the way for the stars of today more than Bruno. Everything that we have today in the business, Bruno was a cornerstone of that foundation. He truly is a living legend...

There has been this bad blood between Bruno and the WWE for years, and weíre not trying to hide any of it, but I just felt like we are at a point where a lot of it can be resolved. Our wellness program and the way our programming is now, a lot of people are unaware of it, so I felt like if I could get Bruno on the phone and I could run down a list of those things that he didnít like, I could show him how we changed. Weíre PG, family-friendly entertainment with a wellness program that is truly based on the wellness of our performers. We want them to be healthy and live long, productive lives. So I just felt that if Bruno knew about those things, he might feel differently, and eventually, thatís what came to be."
