Re: Wrestling- NVG (SPOILERS inside view at your own risk)

Bruno

I know he was in his 80's but the guy seemed to in good shape whenever we saw him last few years. Glad he was able to reconcile and be put in the Hall while he could still enjoy it. I'll never forget how, being at the Garden that night, it hit me how much of an historic moment it was with Bruno returning to MSG.

I didn't start watching until 1978, so I missed the prime Bruno era. But he was obviously a legend--he carried Vince Sr.'s promotion for over a dozen years.

RIP

Ah dammit. Though I only started watching after he was totally out of the WWF in all capacities, he was obviously a generational talent. Whatever "it" factor was needed to be massively over in that pre-Wrestlemania era, he clearly had it in spades.
