Fellow blogger Irv Muchnick has written a controversial op-ed piece for SLAM! Wrestling on Bruno Sammartino's decision to finally be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame this year. My personal feelings closely match Muchnick's. Though I don't begrudge Bruno the well deserved honour or the money that was the condition of his acceptance, he made a grave error by stumping for the company's Wellness Policy in the media, at a time when The Rock's and Triple H's physiques look more than a bit fishy.
That scepticism is only enhanced when you know the background of his trainer as well as Irv does: "[Paul] Levesque built his own squeaky-clean physique with the assistance of a personal trainer named Dave Palumbo. Levesque hired Palumbo after his release from prison for selling fake human growth hormone. A well-known steroid guru, Palumbo designs test-beating steroid cycles."
