Mike Migut got inducted into the Keystone State Wrestling Alliance (KSWA) Hall of Fame.
Migut, his mother, Margie, friends and family met at a North Hills restaurant recently to celebrate his milestone birthday in style. KSWA Hall of Famers and wrestling legends Bruno Sammartino, Dominic DeNucci and Lord Zoltan were among those in attendance for the festivities.
Mike Migut and the company his family owns, Valley Printing and Design on Main Street in Johnstown, PA, has been one of the leaders when it comes to professional sports in West Central Pennsylvania and beyond.
Valley Printing has worked on countless business projects and Migut has cemented his friendship with wrestling groundbreakers. Last October, Migut helped Bruno Sammartino celebrate his 80th birthday. Last November, he met with Lord Zoltan to help commemorate the Bourbon Street Brawler’s 40th anniversary in the professional wrestling ring. Migut presented Zoltan with a custom Penguins jersey with the number “40” on the back. Zoltan has worn it to the ring often, including December’s FanFest and January’s Battle Bowl appearances.
(Even before Hockeyville, in 2014, Migut brought Sammartino and DeNucci to Johnstown to help raise funds for the Johnstown police department’s motorcycle unit.)
Now, Sammartino, Zoltan and DeNucci helped Migut.
Another highlight of the evening occurred when Sammartino toasted Migut by recalling a story of how Margie told her kids, “You have to do good in school, you have to be good everywhere, and I’ll let you watch wrestling. If you don’t, I won’t let you do it.” Sammartino went on to say that they did what they were told and as a reward, were able to continue watching the sport. Sammartino said after meeting Migut and the family, he was able to determine, “what a great guy he is. The whole family is wonderful, wonderful people.”
Sammartino, who gifted a rare “Bruno Sammartino ‘The Strongest Man in the World’” bottle of wine, capped his support for “a really, really good friend.”
To this day Migut is a tireless fan, friend and supporter of professional wrestling.
Michael Migut officially turns 50 on Sunday, March 27
