Past meet present - Respect in Professional Wrestling

Not really a news piece, but more of a personal fan moment.  Bruno Sammartino had posted the picture above from a meeting with CM Punk during WrestleMania 29 weekend.  For those that do not know, Bruno has been very vocal in the past about the drug use that has been prevalent in Professional Wrestling since the 1970's.  CM Punk has obviously been one of the few mainstream stars to publicly acknowledge the "Straight Edge Movement" since the movement was prevalent during the 1980's and early 1990's.  Sammartino tweeted the following:

"@CMPunk @WWE @WWEUniverse @TripleH DRUG FREE thats been my life and message for the past 77 years. We see eye to eye"

As a fan, this is a powerful moment.  Hope others feel the same.
