Wrestling icon Bruno Sammartino dies at 82

As the story goes, Mars (born Peter Gene Hernandez) resembled Sammartino so much that his father made a decision to start calling him "Bruno" around the time Mars was two years old. Sammartino, his mother and many villagers were almost killed by Nazi soldiers at one point while attempting to hide in the mountains but were ultimately saved by members of the Allied Forces. Rest In Peace, Bruno. He had reportedly been battling health issues for the past two months.

Sammartino is considered one of the most influential wrestlers of all time and would easily be placed on WWE's Mount Rushmore.

Triple H tweeted: "Devastated to hear the passing of a true icon, legend, great, honest and wonderful man". A true friend...and one of the toughest people I've ever met.

We at Wrestling Rumors extend our deepest condolences to the entire Sammartino family during this hard time.
