Sammartino And Backlund Are In The Hall!
"While I have always applauded the WWE's Hall of Fame efforts in chronicling the history of the business, I have always felt that the Hall of Fame was not legitimate without (Bruno) Sammartino's inclusion. There are other longstanding alumni of the WWE that have not been recognized as yet including another long-time world champ in Bob Backlund." -- December 19, 2012
And now..BOTH ARE IN!
The WWE announced on Monday that "THE Living Legend" Bruno Sammartino will finally be inducted into the Hall of Fame. That, coupled with the inclusion of former world champ Bob Backlund announced earlier, brings immediate legitimacy to the Hall of Fame. Congratulations to both!
