Bruno Mars Finally Meets The Legendary Professional Wrestler He Was Named After

When Peter Gene Hernandez was a youngster, his bandleader father gave him the nickname “Bruno,” as he allegedly bore a resemblance to longtime WWWF Champion Bruno Sammartino.

Today, he still carries the moniker, performing on stage world-wide as Bruno Mars. Ā During a stop in Pittsburgh at PPG Paints Arena as part of his 24K Magic World Tour, Bruno finally got to meet his namesake.

The pair posed for a picture together, complete with one of Sammartino’s many championship belts.
