Backstage News on Bruno’s WWE HOF Induction, HHH’s Role

– The deal to bring Bruno Sammartino into the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame was locked in two weeks ago after Triple H traveled to Bruno’s home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The contract was signed this past Friday, February 1st. There had been talk within WWE that the deal was done but sources close to Bruno wouldn’t confirm it because he had not signed yet and they did not feel it was a done deal until he signed.

Bruno’s deal with WWE is expected to be more than just the Hall of Fame induction as WWE wants to use him for commentary on DVD’s, an appearance on TV and some other features. Bruno will likely be involved with the big 50th anniversary DVD that WWE has been planning.

Triple H is the one responsible for the deal. Bruno had turned Triple H’s offer down before but word is that Triple H remained respectful but persistent. Triple H stayed in touch with Bruno over the phone and finally convinced him to change his mind. The negotiations went on altogether for about 7 months.

    HHH’s best weapon was that he wasn’t Vince. Gotta say though that I’m impressed to get Bruno to do this.

    Never, really like HHH ,myself . But your right

  • I generally don’t like Hunter, but man, I got to accept he really did something huge convincing Bruno to enter the WWE Hall of Fame.
