Report has just reached us that top WWE Legend is dead, he passed away this afternoon. WWE Hall of Famer, Bruno Sammartino and wrestling legend passes away aged 82.
After setting a world record in 1959 by bench-pressing a mammoth 565 pounds, Sammartino caught the eye of Vincent J McMahon, and moved into the world of wrestling.
In 1963 Sammartino became the second ever WWE Champion, defeating Buddy Rogers in just 48 seconds at Madison Square Garden.
He went on to hold the title for what was an incredible eight years, a record which will likely never be broken.
Wrestlers have already started paying tribute to Sammartino who revolutionised the sport in his day.
Triple H tweeted: “Devastated to hear the passing of a true icon, legend, great, honest and wonderful man…
