Role in Blitz 1Edit
Bruno begins the season as the captain of the Baltimore Bearcats. He is boastful and cocky, and brags that he will permanently injure the player team's quarterback. In both games against the Bearcats, the special objective is to prevent Battaglia from recording more than 2 sacks on your team's quarterback. After the second game against the player's team, Bruno throws a tantrum at a press conference, and is released for calling the team owner "A spineless Bastard!"(that was the same thing Chuck Koswolski said in a press conference in 1987) After the player's team wins the Division 3 championship, he is then signed by the player created team and continues his season there, despite the head coach's objections that Battaglia is a locker room cancer. He seems to have a contentuous relationship with the team's rookie, as he hits on Jacqui, the cheerleader the rookie also has eyes for. He also appears to have little respect for the team's veteran captain, calling him "Grandpa" and suggesting his age has gotten the better of him when the veteran misses a crucial play. However, some messages left in the veteran's voicemail suggest that the two have become drinking buddies. He also jokes later on about the veteran's endorsement saying that he stuck to his day job
Role in Blitz 2Edit
Sometime in the years following Blitz 1, Bruno joins the Los Angeles Riot expansion team. He then becomes team captain and leads this team of "Ringers" to the championship game every year. Upon joining the Riot, Bruno had his elbow surgically replaced with titanium, allowing him to dish out more devastating hits. Battaglia may be involved in the Commissioner's plan to bolster the Riot at the expense of Franchise and his team, or is at least aware of it, as he reveals to Franchise that Quentin Sands spiked his drink with illegal drugs, resulting in a prison sentence, which ignited a brawl between the two teammates.
He is modeled after former NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski.
