Former WWWF champion Bruno Sammartino will receive a lifetime achievement award by Dapper Dan Charities on Thursday, March 25 at the Petersen Events Center.
“I’m flabbergasted,” said the 74-year-old Sammartino, one of Pittsburgh’s most popular sports figures. “I never expected anything like this. Wrestling isn’t looked upon like the other sports of football, baseball, basketball and hockey. I’m deeply honored.” Sammartino, who wore the championship belt for 11 years in two different reigns and who sold out arenas around the world for the better part of two decades, was selected by Dapper Dan’s six-member executive committee. The award will be presented at the 74th annual banquet Thursday, March 25, at the Petersen Events Center.”
