I will do a 30 minute video next week on the potential 2K15 roster, but here is my WISHLIST roster, 30 of them anyway. Here is my FULL WWE2K15 roster, if did just half of these, I would be very happy! 207 playable characters in all, and the non-playable characters will come once I have announced all the playable ones, I will be releasing 30 playable characters each day! Here goes: 1. Adrian Neville- This guy is one of the most talented athletes I have ever saw, he is also the current NXT Champion and definitely should be included in what I would LOVE to see, the NXT Mode! 2. Aiden English- Some great CAWS on WWE2K14 of this guy, but it would be awesome to have his real moves in the game and have him in the NXT Mode! 3. AJ Lee- This will be a no-brainer, was in WWE 13 and WWE2K14, and has recently returned and definitely the current Divas Champion will make the cut for WWE2K15! 4. Aksana- Not sure about this one, but would be nice to have a newer version of her in ring attire in WWE2K15! 5. Alberto Del Rio ...

The awesome artwork is courtesy of our friends over at Iron Skull Productions. Terry Funk - For six decades the Funkster has graced canvas' all over the world with his form of art. Whether it was as a World Heavyweight Champion or being middle aged and crazy, Funk managed to capture the imaginations of fans wherever he appeared. From the St. Louis Wrestling Club to Amarillo to the WWF to Jim Crockett Promotions to FMW Japan to ECW and everywhere in between, Terry Funk has just about done it all in professional wrestling. Lou Thesz - The man chosen to be the long term flag-bearer for the National Wrestling Alliance following Orville Brown's tragic accident. And what a good choice it was. Thesz may never have been the most flamboyant of performers, instead he went the straight wrestler route and in a time when characters were gradually picking up more interest, Thesz through his in-ring skill alone managed to stay at the top of the game for many years. Harley Race - Until Ric Flair came along, Harley had th ...

Vince McMahon’s reaction to Mike Tyson saying Bruno Sammartino was his favorite wrestler = Best Raw moment ever.
Live from Green Bay, Wisconsin this is Raw . . Raw begins with "Real American" as Hulk Hogan made his return to WWE. He was rocking the red and yellow and the crowd went wild for the Hulkster. Michael Cole, John Bradshaw Layfield and Jerry Lawler welcomed us to the show. Hulk milked the ovation for all he could. "Let me tell you something, brother!" Hulk said it was great to be home. Of course it is because he was in TNA for years. He got a cheap pop by mentioning Green Bay. He spoke about history being made with the launch of WWE Network. Hulk mentioned the ability to watch Bruno Sammartino, Shawn Michaels, Steve Austin and The Rock. He also mentioned the future of WWE Network at WrestleMania. "I am the official host of WrestleMania 30, brother." He finished with this: "Whatcha gonna do when Hulkamania, the WWE Network and WrestleMania 30 run wild on you, brother." Analysis: It was smart to start the show with Hogan. Hogan had good energy in his return. You could tell he was happy to be there. I was exp ...
You may remember the theme song "El Capitan" by John Philip Sousa.

The Higher Opinion: John Cena AND Ric Flair- THE BATTLE FOR THE WORLD TITLE RECORD! Who is the greatest world heavyweight champion of all-time in professional wrestling? Does number of title reigns prove who is the best? Or maybe the length of individual or combined title reigns? Its a debate which splits many fans. Many, if not all, of Ric Flair's fans consider him to be the greatest professional wrestler of all time because of his 16 World Heavyweight Championship reigns. Those 16 world titles are ''official'' in WWE's eyes, although Flair himself claims to have won the world title 21 times in his career. Fans who don't agree that Flair is the greatest ever point to the lengthy title reigns of wrestlers such as Lou Thesz and Bruno Sammartino as evidence that they were better champions than Flair. However, these older champions were products of a different era, when pro wrestling was booked much differently than it is today. Regardless of where you fall in this debate, there is no disputing that Ric Flai ...

Bruno Sammartino is parallel to Bill Russel Hulk Hogan is parallel to Wilt Chamberlain Ric Flair is parallel to Kareem Abdul Jabbar The Rock is parallel to Micahel Jordan Stone Cold Steve Austin is parallel to Shaquille O'Neal Shawn Michaels is parallel to Magic Johnson Bret Hart is parallel to Larry Bird Undertaker is parallel to Tim Duncan Triple H is parallel to Kobe Bryant CM Punk is parallel to Isaiah Thomas Daniel Bryan is parallel to Kevin Durant John Cena is parallel to Lebron James Jeff Hardy is parallel to Allen Iverson CM Punk is parallel to Isaiah Thomas (still unsure about this one though) For those of you that want to discuss this with other die hard wrestling fans, check out our Basketball Group, . ...
The matches between Bruno Sammartino and Ken Patera created one of the biggest championship…
Regarding CM Punk. No matter what you read on TMZ, he is not leaving specifically due to Batista! There are a number of reason, and one is his unhappiness about the way he is being used. He's been making a LOT of money these past few years, especially in the time after the "pipe bomb" incident. WWE pays him a lot, because he makes a lot of money for them. But he is beat up, both physically and maybe emotionally. He needs time off! In the past, wrestlers didn't take the time off they needed because they didn't handle their money well, and couldn't afford it. But Punk does, and he can afford to call some of the shots with his career. Others, like Chris Jericho and Trish Stratus have done the same, and kudos to them. Vince McMahon, just like his father before him, is content to run his talent into the ground, as long as it benefits him. They've been doing it for a long time, all the way back to Bruno Sammartino. Well Punk is hip to all that crap, and he's not going to take it.
DEEP BREATH Time to rant... My grandfather was a fisherman in Charlotte, North Carolina, he was a giant, passionate wrestling fan. I watched Jim Crockett Promotions with him until he passed away into his seventies. He's one of these guys who would jump up and scream, "Go, Bruno, go!" no matter who was holding the championship because Bruno Sammartino was it for him. My dad had an oil painting of Harley Race on his wall, and when it came time to get my old man a present for his birthday or for Christmas, we all knew what we were getting him. We were getting him old tapes, we were getting him autographs, we were getting him something to do with professional wrestling. I've been a fan of this sport for thirty-one years, and I don't know how many thousands of dollars I have dumped down this business in merchandise, and in pay-per-views, and in tickets, and that was all my call, it was all my doing. I did that by myself but... the WWE owes us. The WWE owes me and they owe everybody else that has ever taken cra ...
The seventh match of Wrestlemania 2 from the Rosemont Horizon was a 20 man battle royal. The battle royal actually featured professional football players as well as WWF Superstars. The NFL players were Jimbo Covert, Bill Fralic, Russ Francis, Ernie Holmes, Harvey Martin and William "The Refrigerator" Perry, while WWF stars included André the Giant, Ted Arcidi, Tony Atlas, The Hart Foundation (Bret "Hitman" Hart and Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart), The Killer Bees (B. Brian Blair and Jim Brunzell), Hillbilly Jim, The Iron Sheik, King Tonga, Pedro Morales, Bruno Sammartino, Danny Spivey and Big John Studd. Highlights of the match included seeing former champs Morales and Sammartino get into a noticeable tiff as well as William Perry eliminating Big John Studd after being eliminated himself by offering a handshake to Studd and pulling him out of the ring. It may have been accidental but the match really demonstrated the past as well as the future of the WWF. The last two men in the ring were Andre the Giant and . ...

So I know there are a lot of opinions of who and what I am, and really, I'm being honest with everybody, unless you're certain people who I love and respect, you're opinion of me really doesn't matter cause most of you only know what you hear. Take Justin Beiber for instance. Everybody is so happy to tear this guy down as quickly as they possibly can, and sure, he may be a *** but we don't know him. We don't know how he treats his friends and family. We only know what we hear. So, hear this. I am a wrestling fan. I love professional wrestling. I have since I was 4 years old. When my father first took me to the Baltimore Civic Center and I watched Bruno Sammartino. (Yes, I am that old.) Which leads me to this. When there is competition in professional wrestling, the fans win. If despising me for believing in my product and definitely not ashamed to say so gets you off your *** to provide the fans with a better show, then the way I look at it is THAT is what's best for business. As a fan of professional w . ...

thats awesome! Really like the Steve Austin and bruno sammartino ones
Time for a rant.In this rant, I will defend TNA Impact Wrestling. Ready? Here we go. Here's the thing about World Wrestling Entertainment. They've been around since the 50's & 60's right? In 1962/72, where were they? Could you name me their world champ at that time? No. Why? Because they were just starting out. They didn't have a Hulk Hogan, or John Cena, or Dwayne Johnson, or MTV, or *** even PPV, for godsake they barely had a television deal, if they even had one at all.The only way to find out what you missed in professional wrestling was to read the local paper. Yeah WWE had Bruno Sammartino, but he was nowhere near as popular as Austin or Hogan, although for that time period he was very very popular. But bare in mind, when WWE was 12 years old they were struggling. TNA is 12 years old and struggling, and they too don't have an Austin, or Hogan, or Cena. They have Sting, they have Buh Buh Ray Dudley, they have a whole crap load of WWE rejects and wannabes, and that'll keep em busy for now, but event . ...

If Bruno Sammartino is the WWE Hall of Fame's Babe Ruth then Ultimate Warrior is its Ty Cobb
Ok so the big news I been reading is that the Ultimate Warrior is to be inducted into WWE 2014 Hall of Fame, About time, and I'm thinking HHH may had something to do with it? If it wasn't for HHH we may have not seen Bruno Sammartino inducted? and he said he would never do nothing for the WWE ever again? So I guess James Hellwig & Vince McMahon put there different to the side? from what I been reading he's been working side by side with Vince, Now for the other part of this story, Hulk Hogan to induce Ultimate Warrior? from what I been reading he doesn't hate the Warrior anymore? Really??? I don't know why I have issues with this? I guess people change? but I would have love to see Hogan inducted Macho Man Randy Savage. If only?

‘I Felt Like We Were All At A Funeral’: Remembering The Night Bruno Sammartino Lost The WWE Title WWE.com has a piece up by Bill Apter looking back at the 43rd anniversary of the night Ivan Koloff ended Bruno Sammartino’s 8 year reign as WWWF World Champion. It’s definitely a really good read. I’d recommend checking it out By Bill Apter: Since winning the WWE Title on May 17, 1963, from “Nature Boy” Buddy Rogers, the “Italian Superman” Bruno Sammartino seemed invulnerable. Top challengers such as Gorilla Monsoon, Professor Toru Tanaka, Hans Mortier, The Sheik, Ernie Ladd and dozens of others took the champion to the height of physical limits, yet he was able to endure and proudly keep the championship that proclaimed his supremacy. The “Russian Bear” Ivan Koloff was another top contender who grappled Sammartino numerous times & came close to victory, but Bruno was always able to best him— until the night of Jan. 18, 1971. Koloff — scheduled as Sammartino’s opponent in the main ...

The WWWF was the premiere wrestling promotion on the east Coast, Bruno Sammartino dominated most of the 70's holding the WWWF title from December of 73 through April of 77, Pedro Morales and Bob Backlund also held the titles during the 70's. The WWWF normally had a baby face champion, however Superstar Billy Graham did have a ten month run as champion. The WWWF had three heel managers, The Grand Wizard of Wrestling, Captain Lou Albano and Fred Blassie, Arnold Skaaland managed both Sammartino and Backlund during their title reigns. The WWWF also recognized Bobo Brazil as USA Champion throughout the 70's even though Brazil did not compete full time. The WWWF also had tag team Champions, later you will a list of both the WWWF singles and rag team Champions of the 70's.

There was a planned Bruno Sammartino statue to be revealed in Pittsburgh that we wrote about months ago but that project is now on hold. The original idea was to put a Bruno statue near the statue of NHL legend Mario Lemieux, on the site of the old Civic Arena in Pittsburgh, which has since been torn down. However, the Pittsburgh Penguins, who own the land, have stated that they would not allow anyone other than Lemieux to be memorialized with a statue on the grounds. Sammartino says the funds and sponsorships to build the statue are all there and it's just about finding a location now.
43 years ago today in , Ivan Koloff pinned Bruno Sammartino to win WWWF HW Title, ending longest reign EVER in
Battle For Russian Supremacy Nikolia Volkoff vs. Nikita Koloff Nikolia Volkoff actually began his career years before Koloff, having started around 1970. He really started pushing the Russian gimmick around 1980, and by 1984, he was teaming with the Iron Sheik and signing the Russian National Anthem. Nikolia was on the slower, more methodical side and often would rely on his power, though, I'm not too sure if he'd have the strength advantage here, as Koloff was strong as an ox. Nikolia's career highlights include wrestling Bruno Sammartino all over the country, unsuccessfully, for the WWWF Championship. He also won the tag-team championship in 1984 with the Iron Sheik. Nikita Koloff made his debut in 1984 and spent the majority of his career in the NWA. Koloff spend his entire career submerged in the Russian gimmick, even outside the ring, he learned the Russian language. Koloff had a very unique blend of power and speed, and he was a great worker. Koloff was at his very best in 1985 when he was United S ...

Getting word today from another page via Supermouth Dave Drason that Luis Martinez passed away last fall at a Chicago-area nursing home where he had lived for quite some time. Was quite a popular performer and a regular at Cobo 40 years ago. Most memorable match I remember of his was Louie and the Sheik going to a one-hour draw when Martinez was a last-minute sub for the advertised Bruno Sammartino. ... RIP and arriba!
1973- Bruno Sammartino vs. Harley Race for the NWA World title.
Hulk Hogan made professional wrestling an acceptable form of entertainment. Celebrities flocked to Madison Square Garden to watch the Hulkster defend his WWF/E Championship and as a result, increased the visibility of the sport. He was a larger-than-life character, one people could not help but take notice of, to be interested in, and to watch whenever he came on the screen. His presence increased viewership and made professional wrestling a must-see attraction when it rolled into town. No other Superstar did more to prop up the wrestling business than Hogan. His title wins and defenses against the likes of Randy Savage, Andre the Giant, Ted DiBiase, the Ultimate Warrior, Sgt. Slaughter, The Undertaker, King Kong Bundy, Roddy Piper, and Paul Orndorff are the things of legend. While not the great in-ring performer that most would want from a champion, Hogan always brought his A-game when it came to big-time title defenses and it resulted in matches that captivated audiences and shaped the business for deca ...

So i just gotta say that Triple h is doing his thing as WWE executive. He got the longest-reigning WWE champion of all-time, Bruno Sammartino inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2013. And now he has the Ultimate Warrior (that man who will never go into the wwe hall of fame.) into the hall of fame 2014 Now here's some history for you guys: Sammartino and McMahon have their share of issues that needed to be ironed out, the 78-year-old was quite critical of the modern day wrestling product. Warrior and McMahon have also had a horrible relationship which dates back 1996. Their relationship was the worse. the company released a DVD in 2005 titled "The Self-Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior." In the DVD WWE talent took turns mocking Warrior while working in clips throughout his wrestling career. Warrior was so upset about the project that he filed a lawsuit against the WWE, claiming the DVD project violated a March 2000 settlement agreement that stated both sides wouldn't disparage each other. An Arizona judge ...

Big Bill Miller was a top wrestler in 1960's and 1970's, he was about 6 ft 6 or 6 ft 7. I remember him having a lot of great matches vs Antonio Pugliese in 1966-1967. He wrestled Bruno Sammartino many times. Big bill and danny Miller were United States WWWF Tag Team Champions before losing the titles in 1966 to Antonio Pugliese and Johnny Valentine. Miller had some great matches on the West coast from 1968-1970 against Ray(The Crippler Stevens ) Thanks

As you may know, Lilian has been mocked for years with the idea she's got a horse face. - WWE chief revenue and marketing officer Michelle Wilson spoke to Multichannel News about the WWE Network and their concerns that it would not gain significant distribution from cable operators and satellite providers: “None of those distributors were particularly looking to launch more networks; if anything they were looking to rationalize their lineups. When we started t ...
WWE & THE Ultimate Warrior STRIKE A DEAL!!! According to various sources The Ultimate Warrior has signed a deal with the WWE. It is believed to be similar to a Legends Contract similer to the ones many past WWE greats are signed too. It is expected to involve a Hall Of Fame Induction and appearance at WrestleMania XXX. WWE are also reasing an Ultimate Warrior DVD set on April 1st so appearances on WWE TV to promote the release would make sense. With the forth coming release of the WWE Network, WWE see it as very important to reach deals with many of the big stars of the past, the "one big WWE family" company line is a big part of why the likes of Bruno Sammartino, Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior and Hulk Hogan are "coming home". As Triple H would say, it's good for business.

Just played Bruno Sammartino in a match against CM Punk...that was the best match ive ever played out in a video game...or anywhere.

Oh, and Punk winning is very fitting from a booking perspective.

WWE Hall of Famer and living legend Bruno Sammartino sits down with Colt to share stories of the past. Bruno is the king of Madison Square Garden and the heart of New York. A true legend on this weeks podcast.
WWE Raw results: - Randy Orton and Ric Flair had an in- ring confrontation. Before it could get physical, John Cena ran out to protect Flair. 1. The Usos and Rey Mysterio defeated The Wyatt Family (Erick Rowan, Luke Harper and Daniel Bryan). This was Daniel Bryan’s debut as a member of the Wyatt Family. He wrestled in a blue, sleeveless jumpsuit. Luke Harper took the loss for his team when he took exception to Daniel Bryan acting on his own and got rolled up and pinned. 2. Big E Langston defeated Curtis Axel. Langston won fairly easily with The Big Ending. Ryback was on color commentary. - The Shield made an appearance on Piper’s Pit.

Damien Sandow Vs. The Great Khali w/Raja Singh Our Guest Referee is... SGT. SLAUGHTER Sandow tries to out-wit his large opponenant but gets tangled in the corner. Khali slugs away at Sandow, stomps on him, and gets a chop. Sandow retreats but gets stuck again. He gets another chop, Sandow turns the tide after that. They do a lot of fighting in the corner. Khali shoves Sandow and as Damien gets up is met with a big Khali head chop. Great Khali covers Sandow but he puts his foot on the rope. Slaughter counts the three, not seeing it. Winner: The Great Khali Damien Sandow protests this, shoves the Sarge but eventually ends up in a Cobra Clutch. Khali, Raja Singh, and Sgt. Slaughter dance. -Brock Lesnar & Paul Heyman are up next! Business has picked up! Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman enter the Warzone! The Self-Proclaimed Number 1 contender is here but they want to talk about this meaning of "Old School". This isn't about "Old School" though, it's more for, not old timers, Brock and Paul have respect, let's cal ...
Brock and Paul are heading to the ring now. They get in and Paul has a mic. Ladies and gentlemen my name is Paul Heyman and here comes the best part, he stands before us as the advocate of the self proclaimed contender to the WWE World Heavyweight Championship The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar. Now, old school is not trudging out legends and giving them their last hurrah but when one man reigns supreme and everyone from the locker room challenges that one man. Like back in the day with Bruno Sammartino, that's old school. Hulk Hogan did the same and everyone wanted to be the one man. Stone Cold did the same thing. That's how it is again now today because there is just one man as champion and whether it's Orton of Cena after the Rumble the champ's time will be limited because Brock will be coming after them! Now this is where the facts are better than hype! There is no one who can compare in WWE or MMA to Brock. Last week Brock had nothing and he laid Henry to waste! It wouldn't have mattered who came down ...
Heyman has a very good point about "Old School" saying one man reigns supreme with every member of the locker room wanting a piece of them to be the man! He name drops Bruno Sammartino, Hulk Hogan and Stone Cold Steve Austin who reigned supreme in their eras!!~Jordan

John R. Barend (March 27, 1929 – September 20, 2011), better known as "Handsome" Johnny Barend, was an American professional wrestler. Born in 1929 in Rochester, New York, Barend started wrestling as an amateur at the age of eight. After graduating from Jefferson High School in Rochester in 1944, he served in the United States Navy during World War II and wrestled while in the service. He was trained to wrestle professionally by Ed Don George and made his professional debut on November 1, 1948. Soon after, he started teaming with Gene Dubuque, who was wrestling under the name, Magnificent Maurice. Barend usually played the part of the "heel" or bad guy. He would enter the ring wearing his customary hat and sunglasses an unlit cigar gracing his lips and would goad fans with his soliloquies. Barend's original manager was Ernie Roth, then using the name Mr. Kleen. Roth would later gain fame in the WWWF as the Grand Wizard of Wrestling. Barend and Maurice went on to win many tag-team championships. Barend f ...

I loved hearing Bruno Sammartino on podcast, if you are a fan of professional wrestling, why aren't you listening?
For all the Puro and "glory days of Japanese MMA" (Pride) freaks out there: the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (cover date January 6, available online right now) dedicates about half its pages (eight out of 17) to a "Tokyo Dome Flashback", looking at all the major Tokyo Dome shows that took place between 1989 and 2013. New Japan, Pride, New Japan/All Japan/WWF joint-shows, the "Weekly Pro" joint-show with matches from 13 Japanese promotions (including All-Japan Women, RINGS, UWFI, FMW, IWA, Pancrase, Michinoku Pro, etc.), the first New Japan show featuring athletes from the former USSR, etc. An incredibly fascinating and educating read and one of the reasons why I love the Observer so much - it's not just a "dirtsheet" with backstage scoops and gossip, but also offers great retrospective insight into the business, its history and its legacy, plus analysis of the various business metrics, ratings and trends in both pro-wrestling and MMA. Since the newsleter is obviously not available f ...

Bruno Sammartino is on the new Colt Cabana podcast
Bruno Sammartino on why Lou Albano is the greatest wrestling manager of all time. "He would say and do things where he would literally put himself at risk. Believe me, there were many times when he had to fight his way from the ring back to the dressing room, but that never put any fear into him. He continued to be what he was. Now since Lou passed I’ve heard some people say that Bobby Heenan might have been the best manager, or Gary Hart, or Fred Blassie, or Ernie Roth (The Grand Wizard). No. I’ll tell you why Lou Albano was No. 1 and nobody could question that fact.None of those other guys could create that kind of a situation that people were even interested in seeing them wrestle somebody. They wanted Lou to get in the ring. They wanted him to challenge me or challenge Pedro Morales or someone else. They wanted that because they so hated him because of the way he was on camera and on the mic. Nobody generated that kind of a situation. I never remember Ernie Roth, Bobby Heenan or Blassie literally ...
We don't usually show our scripts beforehand, but in this case...you still have to watch to see who talks within the quote marks! Year of the Duck He sailed up the river, this fowl so fair, And passed under bridges with inches to spar. Photographers flocked to take photos, with pluck. That bird fit the bill, in the Year of the Duck. And speaking of moments worthy of mention, The Furries were back for a shaggy convention. A cat in Squirrel Hill, in a tree for a week, Was saved, as he offered a gratified squeak. The Fort Pitt cannon, one bright summer morn. Appropriate. "This is where Pittsburgh was born." A hundred year landmark is just down the block. "I said, Let's meet under the clock." Yarn bombing artists were careful, while placing. "We cover parts of the tower facing." The Dormont pool was filled to the brim. "Once you take him in, he'll swim." Andrew McCutchen made everyone glow. He proposed on the Ellen Degeneres show. But his team put opponents down to their knees. The Bucs had a season that's ce ...

I'm a bit troubled at WWE's miseducation of the fans. They released this mid-1970's era figure of Bruno Sammartino, then on the back they only talk about his late 1950's & early 1960's accomplishments, and say he beat Buddy Rogers to become the first WWE Champion. I love this figure, but so much is wrong here...
Wrestling Personallity Scott Epstein was killed the morning of the 27th by a car crash. exert from the article... Scott Epstein, a mainstay in the wrestling community in the New York City market, was killed in an automobile accident early Friday morning. New York Newsday reports that his car hit a tree around 1:20 a.m. near his East Rockaway, N.Y. home. Epstein was a crucial figure in the 1970s for developing the bridge between the big muscle builders of the time and professional wrestling. He has worked with clients such as Superstar Billy Graham, Bruno Sammartino, Tony Atlas and many other over his career, bringing the two worlds together utilizing larger than life personalities. As a writer for Main Event and Ring Wrestling, he was able to utilize the contacts he established to help propel some of these men to superstar status in the ’70s. As WWE became bigger as the decades progressed, he mainly worked the independent scene as a vendor or photographer, and continued to do so until his untimely death ...
10 Longest WWE Championship Reigns of All Time As WWE’s Money In The Bank PPV approaches, CM Punk’s WWE Championship reign is reaching epic proportions. By the time the PPV takes place, Punk will be 240 days into his title run (barring an unlikely loss). This will put him just over a month away from cracking the top 10 longest WWE Championship reigns on all time, an impressive feat in an organization that has consistently had shorter world title reigns since its inception. With this in mind, let’s take a look at the 10 longest WWE title runs of all time. 1 Billy Graham – 296 Days 2 Diesel – 358 Days 3 Hulk Hogan – 364 Days 4 Randy Savage – 371 Days 5 John Cena – 380 Days 6 Pedro Morales – 1,027 Days 7 Bruno Sammartino – 1,237 Days 8 Hulk Hogan – 1,474 Days 9 Bob Backlund – 2,135 Days 10 Bruno Sammartino – 2,803
Today was awesome! Had Lunch with family and exchanged more Christmas presents. Loved what I got, and what was give was also very well received (yay!). After that I got some clearance toys from TRU, and went to Walmart. There I got a 4 film set, which included Holy Moses for $3 and found the Bruno Sammartino figure I'd been hunting. It was the only elite figure they even had (how lucky is that?). and they price matched based on the picture I had of Kmart's sale tag, so I got $5 off. To top it off, I got to hang out with Tiona Johnson, who I have not seen much of in a long time and met her girlfriend, who was pretty awesome. Now I'm relaxing at home trying to decide what movie to watch. :)
WE World Heavyweight Championship The WWE World Heavyweight Championship is widely recognized as the most historic championship in WWE. Dating back to 1963, the WWE Championship was first awarded to Buddy Rogers after he defeated Antonino Rocca in the finals of a tournament in April. Since that time, the biggest names in the business have held the title, including Bruno Sammartino, Andre the Giant, Bret Hart, The Rock and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. At WWE TLC on Dec. 15, 2013, WWE Champion Randy Orton defeated World Heavyweight Champion John Cena to unify the two titles, melding the two most vital championship lineages in all of sports-entertainment and creating the WWE World Heavyweight Title.

Hey wrestling fans, Bruno Sammartino is across the room from me. He is one huge italian..
Who thinks this is weird today I'm talk to someone at work and I bring up wrestling my boss Mr T walks by and over here just talking about it he said I love wrestling my favorite wrestler is Bruno Sammartino I nod and say cool when Mr T walked away I look at him and say Mrs t actually knows a wrestlers name who would have thought Mr T is the wrestling guy but then again Bruno sammartinos from the 70's he may have grown up watching it who knows
I wish WWE gaming was more consistent on announcing DLC release dates. We're nearing the end of December and DLC pack 3 comes out sometime in January. Would be nice to know an official date by now. Definitely excited for Rick Rude, Jake Roberts, and Bruno Sammartino. Also hope American Badass Taker becomes available on the same day for those of us who did not purchase the Deadman edition. ~~BJ
I am glad this day is winding down.I woke up excited and have been in the worst mood ever since I got the news about Scott Epstein like its a bad day. I woke up to a text from Bill Paley and he asked if I heard the news about Scott? The first person I thought of was a famous wrestler Scott.for some reason...So I texted him back and as I was texting him he called me and said did I hear about Scott Epstein and I said to him no what happened to him I just talked to him before I went to bed. He told me the news and I was in shock. Than Bob Mulrenin called me and confirmed it. I have known a lot of people to pass away around me in the last few years like Doug and my parents but Scott hit me pretty hard if not just as hard. This guy was a class act all the way around. I can't remember the first time I met him but I think it was at Legends of the Ring conventions and than from there I would see him all over the place. Scott was the kind of guy who would go out of his way to say hello to you. He was NEVE ...
We were so saddened to learn of the passing of Scott Epstein today. Scott was a booking agent for so many wrestlers, and a true man-about-the-business. KC's dealings with him were pleasant and he is the one man in the pro wrestling business who publicly gave Sean a run for his money with wardrobe. But beyond dressing professionally, Scott added an air of professionalism in his demeanor and practices. Scott worked behind the scenes with us in making Ring Roasts 2 happen, represented Superstar Billy Graham for his "Timeline" appearance, and most recently had a large part in making Bruno Sammartino's "Timeline" appearance possible. His loss will be significant to this segment of the wrestling business. We offer his wife and children our sincerest condolences. Goodbye, friend.

2013 Awards: News Story of the Year For once we have a close one. There were some big stories this year and picking the biggest is actually difficult. As usual we’ll go with some nominees first. Bruno Sammartino comes back to WWE. This is minor by comparison but to see Bruno on Raw and at Wrestlemania was long overdue. Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff leave TNA. This is less of a news story and more of an answer to several prayers. I won’t say these two were universally bad for the company but the bad outweighed the good. The focuses on the Hogan drama and Garrett Bischoff from a few years ago dragged the good stuff down and it just never ended. Hogan would have been great as a GM character who showed up once every few weeks and made a match and OCCASIONALLY got physical. Having everything centered around Hogan got old fast and the fact that we never got a payoff to Hogan vs. Bully Ray really hurt things. TNA running out of money. It isn’t as high on the list because of one simple things: there ...

Why TNA use to be always better than WWE- 1. Underutilized talent were main eventers. Matt Morgan is huge and is a guy wwe loves to use. They fired him twice. In tna he fought for the world title on the last match on a ppv. Elijah Burke got to be himself as the Pope. Got a main event world title match. Ken Anderson won the world belt twice unlike wwe where he got a push then fired. R-Truth was a 2 time champ and the second champ ever. Thats unheard of compared to both his wwe runs combined. Christian was the instant classic, 2 time champ and was the biggest acquisition at the time. In wwe he was a tag team guy and mid carder. If it wasnt for tna, maybe wwe would never give Christian 2 world titles too. 2. Undercard wrestlers get air time and titles. Instead of doing nothing and getting fired in wwe. Im sure there was a time that they all had their 15 mins of fame. But wrestlers got to shine in tna. Shannon Moore got to beat AJ Styles, mr. Tna in his first match. Went back to wwe, got fired again. Went bac ...
My mother got me a John Cena toy. At 27 I told her it was a cruel joke. She goes "is he a bad guy or a bad wrestler?" I love you mom. You redeemed yourself with the Bruno Sammartino toy and the Cm punk slippers. My mother pulled a sweet joke on me without knowing it.
So the "Bruno Sammartino" of flavors has lost the title, Can't say it wasn't a good run

Is there anyone out there that is a fan of wrestling either now or when they where younger? When I was an altar boy our family priest used to take all of us altar boys once or twice a year to the Civic Arena to see wrestling matches and my dad used to take me when I was growing up as well. I have to say my favorite all time wrestlers where Bruno sammartino, Ivan Putski, Rick "The Nature Boy " Flair, Rickey "The Dragon" Steamboat, Brett "The Hitman" Hart, and John Cena. Who where your favorites?

Roddy Piper rarely got pinned in his heel run in the wwf from early 1984 to mid 1986. Snuka had one pinfall in a strap match. Boston Garden February 1986 Bruno Sammartino beat Piper in a cage match. Thanks
Mark Torak’s recent posting inspired me to post this tribute to one of the best of all time – Strongman Bruno Sammartino! The photo of me with Bruno Sammartino was taken at The New Haven Arena on March 29, 1963. Naturally, I was beyond thrilled to meet him in person. And Bruno signed the backside of the photo at a later event. I was there at MSG in NY on May 17, 1963 when Bruno won the championship title from Nature Boy Buddy Rogers, but I was too far away to get any decent photos.

Buddy Rogers didn't wrestle to much after 1963. I remember he wrestled in 1979-1980 NWA. He managed Snuka. I guess he teamed with Snuka a few times. He was supposed to be Snuka's tag team partner on December 26 1983, Arnold Skaaland took his place. Rogers disappeared from Rogers corner and the wwf. Interestly right brfore Hulkamania. January 1984. Bruno Sammartino returned as an announcer in 1984 after Rogers left. Thanks
