One of the all-time greats in professional wrestling -- Bruno Sammartino -- will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in Madison Square Garden on 4/6.  The announcement will be made on Raw tonight, while the story was released to ESPN today.

This was the story I hinted at last night on Live Audio Wrestling.  It was kept secret from virtually everyone in WWE and Sammartino had an agreement not to release it ahead of WWE. 

Negotiations had gone back several months.  The deal was put together by HHH and it is believed it also will include Sammartino being involved in at least one additional DVD release: the planned 50th anniversary of WWE release later this year.

We'll have a lot more on this later today.
