A mere six months after making his Madison Square Garden debut, Bruno Sammartino headlines MSG for the first time ever, tagging with Antonino Rocca and defeating the team of Pampero Firpo & The Great Antonio. Contrary to wrestling lore, Sammartino did not sell-out Madison Square Garden 187 times. In fact, over the course of twenty-six years, he “only” made 159 appearances at the World’s Most Famous Arena. Furthermore, according to the best records available, “The Living Legend” had approximately 45 sell-outs of The Garden when wrestling in the main-event, either as a singles or tag team performer, an amazing accomplishment that will likely never be duplicated.
