Irv Muchnick: "Bruno’s bad call on WWE Hall of Fame shows Vince is right – everyone has a price"

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.

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."
