Bill Apter has a column up on WWE.com where he talks about the night when Bruno Sammartino lost the WWWF title to Ivan Koloff. Apter was ringside taking photos and covering the match.
I remember seeing Bruno’s fan club president, Georgian Orsi, sitting in the front row, crying. Many other fans wept as well. I felt like we were all at a funeral as Bruno left the ring. No one knew what to say.
