Should have known..
This is amazing!
This is ridiculous!
Not induct, abduct!
Ahnuld for guvna!
He is going to ask him a bunch of questions….and he wants them to be answered immediately….
Larry Zbyszko should be the one inducting Bruno Sammartino.
Hooray et is de terminator!
i agree with Kerry. Zbysko would’ve made far more sense then Arnold.
Besides having a 40 year friendship with Bruno, Arnold will generate far more mainstream publicity than Larry Z ever would. Expect all the major news & celebrity gossip affiliates to run with this story big-time. It’s really a dream come true for Vince….Bruno Sammartino the legend finally returns to the WWE and mainstream mega-superstar Arnold inducts him into the HOF. Win-win for VKM. Wrestling purists might not like it but $$$ will always be the bottom line.
What I don’t get is Bruno is hugely against Roids yet he is best friends with the kind of Roiding….
Whoa Fisca. Use and abuse. When it comes to work ethic and training regime, Arnie was out of this world. And when he was around, much less was known about steroids that we know today. The real roid kings are those that know the dangers, have seen the fatalities, but continue to take them without rotation periods and for sustained periods of time. Bodybuilders tend to not fall into this bracket. Wrestlers consistently have. If anyone out there is wearing the roid crown, carrying a roid sceptre and presiding over a roid kingdom, it’s The Rock. I bet Vinnie Mac doesn’t ask him for a sample.
And having Arnie induct Bruno is a great choice. To add to what Wordman said, where would wrestling be without Arnie? He dragged an underground sport into the mainstream and inspired a generation of gym rats. Would wrestling have had the Rude’s, Warrior’s and even the Hogan’s without Arnie? Or would it have stayed like it was; the odd college wrestler, the occasional strongman, the fat bloke from the pub and the rare Ivan Putski / Billy Graham body beautiful? Also, he’ll add so much weight to how great Bruno Sammartino is. The kids, teenagers and occasional fans won’t have a clue who Larry Zybysko is, but like Stallone with Hogan, if a man has Arnie inducting him then he must be special.
And Arnold can get involved in a WM match. More $$$ and free publicity
