There is new speculation that WWE has reached some sort of deal to work with Bruno Sammartino. There have been rumors from sources within WWE that deal has been reached and might stipulate that Sammartino won't have any interaction with Vince McMahon at all during the WrestleMania weekend.
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.
