- With WWE working on several projects for Bruno Sammartino this year, the 2013 Hall of Famer is expected to be a playable character in the new WWE 2K14 video game, in an attempt to draw in older video game players.
- WWE's top choice to induct Bruno into the Hall of Fame this year is Arnold Schwarzenegger. Bruno and Arnold have been friends for over 40 years, when they worked out together in New York and California in the late 1960's and early 70's. Bruno Sammartino was one of the judges of the Mr. Olympia contest that Schwarzenegger won and also they judged several bodybuilding contests together in later years.
They remain friends to this day and will be together in a few weeks when Bruno Sammartino is inducted into the International Sports Hall of Fame that is part of the Arnold Classic in Columbus, OH on March 2nd.
- WWE will be holding a Diva Search event in Los Angeles, California this week. The event is not open to the public, as WWE is having modeling agencies bring in attractive, athletic young ladies to be evaluated. Being a wrestling fan is a plus, but wrestling training is not required.
