I believe that Bruno had a problem with the attitude era stuff. The swearing, scantily clad women etc. He felt wrestling didn't need that. That's what I've read anyways.

I also believe he may have had a problem with how the WWE treated his son David Sammartino.

I gotta think Bruno's getting a really nice pay day for this, because it's been a huge embarrassment for the WWE to not have him in its HOF.

Can't remember where I read it (maybe on these forums), but Sammartino is apparently getting a multi-year, seven figure deal from WWE. I bet that has more to do with him accepting the HOF induction than any change in the WWE product.
