WWE/WWF legend Bruno Sammartino passed away today at the age of 82. He is the longest reigning WWF champion ever, holding the title a record 2,803 days! He is also the namesake of Bruno Mars. When Mars was young, his father thought he resembled Sammartino & the nickname stuck! Rest easy Mr. Sammartino.
