- WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Piper recently spoke with WrestleNewz.com about Bruno Sammartino’s 2013 WWE Hall of Fame induction. Here are some quotes:

“I don’t think there’s a Hall of Fame good enough for him. He outranks me. He is what a professional wrestler should be. He’s a man’s man. We get along great, and always have.”

“He’s a complete natural and an incredible human being.”

“I can’t give him enough accolades.”

The full article is available at WrestleNewz.com where Piper also tells about how, in the fall of 1985, he invited Sammartino to be a guest on a live, in-ring edition of Piper’s Pit at Madison Square Garden.

    I am pretty happy for this. I got to see Bruno wrestle some in the 80′s, and he is more manly than 90% of today’s roster combined. Sure he was bitter about how things were for awhile, but are not most people bitter with how the generation that follows do things? Not just in wrestling, but every day life.
