We reported yesterday that Bruno Sammartino had been contacted by WWE concerning a possible induction into next year's Hall of Fame, and we then posted a follow-up story noting that Sammartino issued a public statement turning down the offer.
The Wrestling Observer is now reporting that Triple H was the one who contacted Bruno about the possible induction, and attempted to convince the legendary wrestler to accept the WWE offer.
Triple H reportedly urged Sammartino to look past the bad blood between him and Vince McMahon, and use the Hall of Fame induction as way to acknowledge his legacy and educate younger viewers on his legendary career.
