Bruno Sammartino, one of the most beloved and successful pro wrestlers of all time, died in April of 2018. In response, WWE released a documentary recapping his life, which you can find on the WWE Network. Is this Bruno retrospective worth a watch, or just the extended version of a four-minute video package that they've labeled a 'documentary'? On the latest episode of Awesome Truth, we revisit Bruno's life through the WWE lens and examine how pro wrestling in the 1960s and 1970s got us to the modern era.
