Bruno was born the youngest of seven children. During World War II, while still very young, he hid with his family in the mountains while trying to escape German soldiers. At the age of 15, Bruno moved to the US to join his father who had been living there for several years. Since his knowledge of English was poor, and he was a sickly child due to previous war experiences, he was bullied in school, which instigated Sammartino to devote himself to weight training. While attending Schenley High School, he worked out with the University of Pittsburgh wrestling team and became known in the Pittsburgh area for performing strongman stunts.

After appearing on a TV show, he was identified by promoter Rudy Miller, and was then recruited into professional wrestling. Bruno’s professional debut came in 1959, and within the next six months he was headlining at Madison Square Garden, and soon became the only man to lift the 640lb wrestler Haystacks Calhoun. In May 1963, he won the WWWF World Championship in just 48 seconds. He kept his title for seven years, eight months and one day which is still the longest world title reign in the history of wrestling. In January 1971, Sammartino lost the Madison Square Garden championship to Ivan Koloff, leaving the public in a state of shock. However, Bruno regained the WWWF Championship, this time keeping his title for three years, four months and twenty days.

His last major series of matches happened in the mid-‘80s against “Macho Man” Randy Savage and The Honky Tonk Man. After retiring in 1987, Sammartino continued to do commentary for the WWF during the following year.

Due to his outstanding achievements and lucrative career, he has been named “Living Legend” and is highly respected in his profession. On the 6th April 2013, after having declined this invitation several times before, Bruno finally accepted induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.

When it comes to his personal life, Bruno has been married to Carol since 1959, and the couple has three sons and four grandchildren. Today, he and his wife reside in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
