WWE unveiled a Bruno Sammartino statue Thursday night during WrestleMania Axxess.

Sammartino holds the record for the longest single WWE Championship reign in the company’s history, as he held the title from 1963 all the way until 1971. He held the title a total 4,040 days during his career.

Sammartino was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last year in Madison Square Garden — the same venue where he sold out numerous cards as champion.
