At this time this is not confirmed, but it has been previously reported that Triple H was working very hard to get Sammartino to accept WWE's invitation to the Hall of Fame.

Wow! He hates McMahon THAT much! Then again, I hear he hasn't spoken to his own son in many years as well, so he must have some serious personal issues if he values "old school" wrestling values over family relations.

What was that guy's appeal that Vince Sr. felt he should have an 8-year title run? He had a freakin' bearhug as a finisher and I get a negative impression of him as a person, so if any old school fans can give me some assistance, that would be nice.
I remember reading the story in the Post-Gazette a month or so ago. I don't think the entire thing was over old school wrestling vs family relations. The article was mostly about Sammartino making a rare appearance, what he's up to these days, but it did mention David briefly. I'll see if I can dig it up when I get home.

Going through puberty during Trish's main event run was very....fun.

Found the article that I was looking for. Not sure how I even found this to begin with, considering the article is from 1998.

Quote:
Bruno has stayed away from pro wrestling for years except to lambaste what it has become - "an X-rated obscene sleaze show," in his words.

OK, pro wrestling wasn't all pure in his time, but Bruno said many matches were real, and tough guys really wrestled as athletes. Today, he says, it has degenerated into a joke.

So Sammartino will probably be inducted by HHH. But who'll induct Foley and Trish? Terry Funk or Rock for Foley? Lita for Trish?
