The 2013 Hall of Fame ceremony on 4/6 will be in Madison Square Garden.We noted that theywere trying to get it there when HHH called Bruno Sammartino, but it’s now official. There was some red tape they had to cut through because WWE made their deal with the state of New Jersey, which gave them a number of concessions and benefits to get the economic impact of WrestleMania for their state. All activities were supposed to be in the East Rutherford area. Fan Axxess is scheduled for the Izod Center, and the 4/8 Raw the next day is also scheduled there.
We’ll see what Mania in MSG means, but I can see Mick Foley being inducted since he’s from New York and went to MSG matches as a fan, perhaps Kevin Nash just because it’s that time, and Bob Backlund, since Backlund just worked for them last month and Backlund headlined more MSG shows than anyone in history except Sammartino, and also sold out more events there than anyone but Sammartino.
They’ll probably make another play for Ultimate Warrior. People who have talked with Warrior believe he’d be open to it, but also say he’s almost impossible to do business with and it’s a big risk because he could agree to do it and then start putting stips and changing his mind on the deal.
