F4Wonline.com reports that WWE officials want Bruno Sammartino to be the headliner for the 2013 Hall of Fame class from the New York City area. WWE has already contacted Sammartino about being inducted but we do not know his response to them yet.
Sammartino’s past with WWE is a troubled one. He hasn’t worked with them since the late 1980’s and has been very critical of Vince McMahon and the WWE product over the years. Sammartino has turned down several projects from WWE over the years, declined invitations to shows and spoken out against them in the media.
So far this year, only one other name has been rumored for the 2013 Hall of Fame – Rena “Sable” Lesnar. The former WWE Women’s Champion was rumored around WrestleMania time this year when it became clear that Brock Lesnar, her husband, would be performing at WrestleMania 29.
