UPDATE: Bruno Sammartino Reportedly Getting Paid More Than $5,000 For HOF Induction
– Additional details have been reported on Bruno Sammartino’s contract with the WWE. The contract is said to be in the high six figure range and will include multiple projects and appearances with the two parties. The exact amount Sammartino is receiving is unknown. It is said he is being paid specifically for his Hall of Fame induction/appearance much higher than the $5,000 he cited in a recent interview.
The six figure amount comes from the collective projects Sammartino and the WWE agreed to work on together in the future. This includes DVD’s, live appearances, and the Hall of Fame.
The deal WWE offered Sammartino also required him to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Reportedly, none of the other projects would have happened if Sammartino didn’t agree to do the Hall of Fame first.
– According to sources, Bruno Samartino is getting paid much more than the reported $5,000 for his WWE Hall of Fame induction. Sammartino is reportedly getting a high six figures for his Hall of Fame induction, and his pay is said to be equivalent to that of a WrestleMania main eventer. Many feel that Sammartino is trying to downplay the money end of things so it doesn’t appear as if he’s accepting the induction solely for the money.
