Bruno Sammartino now a WWE Hall of Famer

The main event of the night was obviously the induction of the living legend, Bruno Sammartino. Sammartino was introduced by former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Schwarzenegger is a big friend of Sammartino and said it was a great honor for him to be there to induct his friend. Arnold talked about the weight lifting the two did and said that recently he bench pressed the New Jersey Governor out of his seat to a large pop from the crowd.

Sammartino came out to two standing ovations from the crowd and peers as fans chanted “one more match,” but the soon-to-be 78 year old was having none of that!

Sammartino talked about the war, coming to America in 1950, being bullied at school, marrying his high school sweetheart, working for McMahon Sr., selling out Madison Square Garden and more.

He thanked his doctors for keeping him in shape, Triple H for making all this possible, and the fans for returning every time he came to Madison Square Garden.

Sammartino’s speech didn’t last that long as the clock hit the three and a half hour mark by the time he wrapped it up.
