Long-time wrestling fans and purists received some fantastic information on the most recent episode of "WWE Monday Night Raw." Bruno Sammartino became the newest inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame. Even better news is that prowrestling.com reported on Feb. 5 that Sammartino signed on for more than just the Hall of Fame.
The 77-year-old former world champion has been the glaring omission from the WWE Hall of Fame since it opened. Sammartino held the title for 11-years on two separate reigns, owning both the record for longest consecutive title streak, at over eight years, and most days as champion. He also sold out over 180 consecutive Madison Square Garden shows over his career.
Fans may get to learn a lot more about Bruno Sammartino, because the new Hall of Fame member has signed on to give commentary on WWE DVDs. It looks like he might be involved in the 50th anniversary DVD the WWE is planning and there should be a DVD of his career coming shortly now that the deal is done.
The contract he worked out with Triple H also includes television appearances.
Bruno Sammartino joins Bob Backlund, Mick Foley and Trish Stratus as the newest additions to the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame class.
