The Living Legend
This week on Last Stop Penn Station it’s all about The Living Legend, Bruno Sammartino. Cary’s childhood hero, the man who waited an hour to meet Ian, and the man who received a standing ovation at his first Ring of Honor appearance, Bruno Sammartino never broke kayfabe and honored the business until his final breath. Cary takes us on a deep, deep dive into the early 70s, to the late 80s during Bruno’s mythical reign as Heavyweight Champion. This week is all laughs, heartfelt stories and honoring a true legend.
Last Stop Penn Station is for mature audiences only. The audio or visual media within may contain offensive language and discussions regarding sex, sexuality, drugs, addiction, rock & roll, and succeeding despite the odds!
