Leopoldo Francesco Sammartino was born on October 6, 1935, in Pizzoferrato Italy. He was probably most known for being the longest-running Champion of the WWWF. However, not only did he hold the title across two reigns for over 11 years (4040 days) in total, but he also had the longest single WWE Championship reign in professional wrestling history. It was in the pre-WWII period that Sammartino moved to the United States and settled in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where his father had lived for several years already. Even though small-framed, Sammartino started devotedly to exercising at the local Young Men’s Hebrew Association. Over time, he became one of the strongest men on earth. Sammartino set a 1959 world record with a weight of 565 pounds after bench press which caught the attention of WWE promoter Vincent J. McMahon was the father of contemporary Vince McMahon, and he was immediately commissioned as a wrestler. He became an overnight sensation. The legend of Bruno continued to grow on May 17, 1963, when he defeated Buddy Rogers in just 48 seconds to become world war iii Champion. When he lost the title in 1971, the audience was taken aback, but on December 10, 1973, Sammartino became the first two-time WWWF Champion, a title he held for an additional three-and-a-half years. Bruno retired in 1987 and, in the mid-80s, returned to WWE as a broadcaster alongside Vince McMahon JR and as a support system for his son David who was just beginning his grappling career. The most popular American wrestler in The 1960s through The early 1980s, he later was known as The Living Legend. On April 6, 2013, he was inducted by his longtime friend Arnold Schwarzenegger into the WWE Hall of Fame. Bruno Sammartino died at the age of 82 on April 18, 2018.
