The Living Legend Comes Home
So much has been written of the issues between Sammartino and the company over the years. He's being stubborn. They're being stubborn. The company isn't what it once was. They're leaving him out just to spite him. Guess what? None of it matters now. A deal has been made. The news has been bigger than perhaps even those of us that wanted it to happen the most ever could've dreamed. From the legendary KDKA here in Pittsburgh to ESPN, it's front page news. It's a colossal event happening at just the right time.
Bruno has already publicly stated that he is doing this for the fans. Is there money involved? Absolutely. There should be. The man has an absolute right to it. I've met Bruno many times. I've watched him interact with the fans that, especially here in Pittsburgh, still idolize the champ. Trust me when I say, he is doing this for the fans. Others can raise their eyebrow and claim the name all that they want, but Bruno Sammartino will always be "The People's Champion."
Thank you, Bruno.
