What's the point if you're just going to play it off like the newer stuff is always better?

It would be like if Cena and Lou Thesz were inducted the same year, you would be retarded to put Cena over Thesz.

Backlund is a bigger star than Foley.
Foley is more relevant to the current generation so WWE would probably put Foley to headline the HOF.

Foley is a MUCH bigger star than Backlund. ^

The Micker fully deserves to headline.

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.

I think it's a shame that Cyndi Lauper is not in the HOF yet.

Foley and Backlund are great choices so far.

Next I want to see the British Bulldogs.

Amen...when I watched that match it just was so intense. Backlund seemed so out of touch with the WWF of that time, but he and Hart pulled out the stops to make that one of the best matches of that decade.
