Update: Further Details Regarding Bruno Sammartino/WWE Deal

Nick Paglino

Bruno SammartinoAs we reported earlier, Bruno Sammartino's contract with WWE is somewhere in the high six figure amount and includes multiple projects and appearances between the two parties. While it's unknown what Bruno is getting paid specifically for the Hall of Fame induction/appearance, our sources believe it's still much higher than the $5,000 he cited in a recent interview.

The six figures comes from the collective projects Bruno and WWE agreed to do together in the future, including DVD's, live appearances, and of course, the Hall of Fame.

We have also learned that the deal WWE offered Sammartino required him to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, meaning none of the other projects would have happened if Bruno didn't first agree to do the Hall of Fame.
