WWE still interested in Bruno Sammartino

WWE officials have been trying for years to get Bruno Sammartino into the WWE Hall of Fame, but it's been said that Bruno just isn't interested. It's now being reported that WWE would like to get involved with the rumored Bruno Sammartino life story film that has reportedly been in development for a while now in an attempt to get Bruno more interested in WWE again.

 

Lanny Poffo interview by Wrestling 101 re Randy "Macho Man" Savage re potential WWE Hall Of Fame induction

When Randy Savage will be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame: "Well I would like to see that happen but do you know what I would really like, somebody from the WWE to extend me some condolences, nobody has done that yet except one guy, Howard Finkel.

"People from all over the world sent their condolences, wrestling fans, friends, I got phone calls from great people like Bret 'The Hitman' Hart and The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase. The first guy I called when I found out the news of Randy's death was The Mouth of the South Jimmy Hart.

"I know that there was some rivalry and heat, but since my daughter is 28-years-old and my mother is still alive at 85-years-old, I would like to have some condolences if not flowers how about a nice card. Here we are a year and a half since Randy died and we're talking about the Hall of Fame, I'm talking about how I would like some condolences from the WWE.

"My Brother didn't want to go into the Hall of Fame unless his little brother and his father also went in, that's what he wanted and that's what I'm sticking to."

In the world of professional wrestling, there are the stars of today, and then there are legends that surpass time. The man called Sting falls into both categories and, in turn, can only be called “The Icon.” Throughout his unparalleled career in professional wrestling, Sting has been a multi-time World Champion, having defeated such stars as Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, and countless others. After a two year hiatus from the ring, Sting exploded back on to the scene in 2006 to reignite an unsettled feud with Jeff Jarrett. Within his first six months in TNA, he captured his 8th Heavyweight Title at TNA’s most illustrious event, Bound for Glory. Sting would continue to mark Bound for Glory as his territory. He captured the TNA World Heavyweight Title three consecutive years at Bound for Glory. Each victory would continue to cement his legacy, as he defeated Jeff Jarrett, Kurt Angle, and Samoa Joe.

At “Slammiversary X,” Sting earned TNA’s inaugural Hall of Fame distinction for his loyalty and unmistakable presence in the ring and out. Truly an “Icon,” Sting continues to stand shoulder to shoulder with Hulk Hogan as a legendary leader of the IMPACT stable of superstars. Though he mostly commands the room with his words these days, don’t be surprised to see Sting stand up to anyone who thinks he’s lost a step over the years. (TNA Wrestling)

The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Hall of Fame is a hall of fame for professional wrestlers maintained by WWE. It was officially created on the February 1, 1993 episode of the World Wrestling Federation's (WWF), the predecessor of WWE, Monday Night Raw television program.

On this episode, the sole induction of WWF alumnus André the Giant, who had died the previous week (January 27, 1993), was announced; his death was the reason for the creation of the Hall of Fame.

After André's induction, the WWF continued the process of inducting members into the Hall of Fame. For these inductions, ceremonies were held to formally induct the candidates from 1994 to 1996; no video footage has ever been released by WWE of these ceremonies. After the 1996 ceremony, the WWF stopped the inductions of wrestling personalities into the Hall of Fame without a formal announcement.
In 2004, WWE relaunched the Hall of Fame to coincide with the twentieth anniversary of WrestleMania.

This ceremony, like its predecessors, was not broadcasted on television, however, it was released on DVD on June 1, 2004.

Beginning with the 2005 ceremony, WWE broadcasted the final few inductions into the Hall of Fame on Spike TV (2005) and on the USA Network (2006 - present); these were aired on tape delay. The first inductions were broadcast on WWE's official website. The 2008 edition of the Hall of Fame was broadcasted live on the USA Network. Since 2005, the Hall of Fame ceremony has been packaged as part of that year's WrestleMania DVD release. Although a building has never been built to represent the Hall of Fame, WWE has sought into constructing a facility for the Hall of Fame. WWE's Executive Vice President of Global Media Shane McMahon has stated that the WWE has been storing wrestling memorabilia in a warehouse for years, and that all items are categorized and dated in case a facility is created.

Induction into the Hall of Fame is dependent upon whether the candidate is on good terms with WWE. Former WWE employees who often criticize WWE or currently work with a different promotion have not been inducted. Others, such as Bruno Sammartino, the longest-reigning WWE Champion in the title's history, are alienated from the promotion and refuse to be inducted, despite having been asked several times.

As of 2008, there have been a total of 68 inductees, with 60 members inducted individually and four tag teams inducted. Thirteen of the inductees have been inducted posthumously. André's sole induction was the least amount of inductions into the Hall of Fame in one year, while 2004 had the most, with 11. (Credit: Wikipedia).
