KAYFABE THEATER: Dialing Up 1-900-BRUNO


Bruno Sammartino wants to challenge YOU to a game of wrestling trivia!

In the late 80’s and early 90’s, 1-900 numbers were all the rage. Whether they were for psychic hotlines, news updates, or merely chatting, people were more than happy to pay $1.99 for the first minute, and .99 cents for every minute after.

These recorded messages were easily and cheaply made, and reportedly highly lucrative. Even the great Bruno Sammartino got in on the act, endorsing this wrestling trivia ‘hotline.’
