Bruno Sammartino Net Worth: Bruno Sammartino is an Italian-native American retired professional wrestler who has a net worth of $4 million. Born Bruno Leopoldo Francesco Sammartino on October 6, 1935, in Pizzoferrato, Italy, he is best known for being the longest-running champion of the World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF). However, not only did he hold the title across two reigns for over 11 years (4040 days) in total, but also he is the longest single WWE Championship reign in professional wrestling history. It was in the post World War II period that Sammartino moved to the States and settled in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where his father had already lived for several years. Even though small framed, Sammartino started devotedly to exercise at the local Young Men's Hebrew Association and grew to become one of the strongest men on the planet. Having set a world record in1959 by bench-pressing 565 pounds, Sammartino caught the eye of promoter Vincent J. McMahon, and went pro almost instantly. He became an overnight sensation. Bruno's legend continued to grow on May 17, 1963, when Sammartino defeated Buddy Rogers in just 48 seconds to become the WWWF 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, and held the title for an additional three-and-a-half years. Having retired in 1987, Bruno returned to WWE in the mid-80s as a broadcaster next to Mr. McMahon 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, today is known as The Living Legend. On April 6, 2013, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his longtime friend, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Bruno Leopoldo Francesco Sammartino (born October 6, 1935) is an Italian-born American retired professional wrestler. He is best known for being the longest-running champion of the World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF), holding the title across two reigns for over 11 years (4040 days) in total, as well as the longest single WWE Championship reign in professional wrestling history.
Sammartino's wrestling style was more mat-oriented which was typical of wrestlers from his era. His brawling, power moves, and personal charisma helped him become the most popular American wrestler in the 1960s through the early 1980s. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on April 6, 2013 by his longtime friend, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Born in Pizzoferrato, Abruzzo, Italy on October 6, 1935, Sammartino was the youngest of seven brothers and sisters. Four older siblings died during his time in Italy. During his childhood, Sammartino's family hid from German soldiers in a mountain called Valla Rocca, during the latter stages of World War II. During this time, Sammartino's mother, Emilia, would sneak into their German-occupied town for food and supplies. She once was captured and another time shot in the shoulder during such trips. Eventually, Sammartino caught rheumatic fever but was nursed back to health by his mother with hot blankets and leeches. In 1950, he moved to the United States and settled in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where his father had already lived for several years.
When Sammartino first came to America, he was sickly from his experiences of surviving during the war years. His slight frame, along with his tenuous grasp of English, made him an easy target for bullies in school. Sammartino wanted to build himself up physically and became devoted to weight training.
Bruno's devotion to weightlifting nearly resulted in a berth on the 1956 U.S. Olympic team. He was edged out by legendary strongman Paul Anderson ??? who outweighed Sammartino by 70 pounds. In the ear
