Re: Official WWE Hall Of Fame Discussion Thread

I don't know about "MUCH bigger star" but Foley is certainly more relevant and known to even young fans today since he has been consistently on TV for the last 15+ years while Backlund hasn't. But don't undersell Backlund's rich history in building this company. He was THE MAN to take the mantle for over half a decade after Sammartino's run in WWF. Bob Backlund was unquestionably the face of pro wrestling in the United States (along with Flair in the NWA at the time) and I am so happy he will get the recognition he rightfully deserves with this Hall OF Induction. I want WWE to do a DVD documentary on Backlund too.


Much gratitude to
CHAMPviaDQ
