King Kong Bundy teased that he will be a member of the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2013. "Sounds like someone listened to the #Bundyholics regarding my Hall of Fame," Bundy wrote on Twitter. "Huge announcement tomorrow night."
Bundy headlined WrestleMania II with Hulk Hogan and had a successful run with the company. He's also a New Jersey native, so an induction at Madison Square Garden would be a nice touch.
Finally that man gets what he deserves. As you can see by my profile, Foley is my all time favorite wrestler, in any promotion. He pretty much gave his body and life to wrestling and I solute him for that. Definitely going to be a great night.
WWE officials had talks last week about inducting either DX or The Kliq - Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Sean Waltman, as one group, into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. It's not confirmed that they will go in but it was definitely talked about over the last week.
PWInsider noted that Bob Backlund was at WWE headquarters in Stamford last week. WWE wants to induct Backlund this year but word is that he has not yet accepted the invite.
Regarding Bruno Sammartino, word within WWE over the last week is they hope to reach out to Bruno again to ask him about being inducted this year. One source believes Triple H is planning to offer to personally travel to Pittsburgh to meet with Bruno.
With all the names floating around for possible induction this year, it's safe to say nobody is confirmed yet except for Mick Foley. We noted yesterday that Kamala may be the next name announced.
This just posted. Inducting the Kliq as a group seems interesting in a putting-themselves-over kind of way. DX would make sense, but only if Triple H is done wrestling.
If these reports are true, it seems like Trips is really set on getting Bruno for the Hall.
Source is PWinsider. Crap report as usual.
Their reports are all based on online discussions. Here's the one about RAW 20 -
WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels is considered a lock for tonight's RAW 20th anniversary show. WWE officials really wanted him there because he was the Intercontinental Champion on the very first episode. Michaels is also from Texas so he will get the big local pop.
- Another star from Texas who is expected tonight is The Undertaker. It is confirmed that he will be wrestling at WrestleMania 29 and his most likely opponent is CM Punk. We may see the beginning of that feud tonight on RAW.
- As noted before, Bret Hart was contacted about tonight's RAW anniversary show but told officials he only wanted to come back if they really had something for him to do. A source confirms that Bret was very upset that they brought him into the RAW 1000 show for what ended up being just a small ringside appearance.
Besides, the idea of inducting KLIQ is totally laughable. They were a backstage group never acknowledged onscreen.
