WWE Hall Of Fame Discussions Begin, Would Bruno Sammartino Be Inducted?
(Wrestling Inc)

WWE Hall of Fame discussions have started. According to a source, Bruno Sammartino remains at the top of the list. Others that key officials have discussed include Mick Foley, Triple H, The Freebirds, Regis Philbin (in the celebrity wing), Bob Backlund, Larry Zbyszko, Sid Vicious, Earthquake John Tenta and Paul Heyman. The feeling is the timing isn't right for Heyman, since he is penciled in to be a major part of one of the marquee WrestleMania 29 matches and as a heel, it would create an awkward atmosphere.

Vince McMahon has not commented on the suggested entries, but should be deciding who is going in within the next several weeks.

According to a source close to Bruno, he has not closed the door to a possible induction. He apparently would agree to be inducted ONLY if the money is right, which be believes is about respect and to rectify "past financial injustices." Bruno feels that WWE has not been fair with him in the past with royalties related to the marketing of his merchandise and action figures, and that the situation must be addressed before he would consider being inducted.

Bruno is also adamant that any deal that he makes to enter the WWE Hall of Fame is made independent of any financing or distribution deal for the potential theatrical film to be made of his life. He would like for that movie to be made, but is financially "very comfortable" and would not be heartbroken if it is not.

Bruno is said to be open to talking to Triple H at any time, and has always been open to take his calls. The source also noted that Bruno has never told Triple H not to call him and never will.

 

Lanny Poffo interview by Wrestling 101 re Randy "Macho Man" Savage re potential WWE Hall Of Fame induction

When Randy Savage will be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame: "Well I would like to see that happen but do you know what I would really like, somebody from the WWE to extend me some condolences, nobody has done that yet except one guy, Howard Finkel.

"People from all over the world sent their condolences, wrestling fans, friends, I got phone calls from great people like Bret 'The Hitman' Hart and The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase. The first guy I called when I found out the news of Randy's death was The Mouth of the South Jimmy Hart.

"I know that there was some rivalry and heat, but since my daughter is 28-years-old and my mother is still alive at 85-years-old, I would like to have some condolences if not flowers how about a nice card. Here we are a year and a half since Randy died and we're talking about the Hall of Fame, I'm talking about how I would like some condolences from the WWE.

"My Brother didn't want to go into the Hall of Fame unless his little brother and his father also went in, that's what he wanted and that's what I'm sticking to."

In the world of professional wrestling, there are the stars of today, and then there are legends that surpass time. The man called Sting falls into both categories and, in turn, can only be called “The Icon.” Throughout his unparalleled career in professional wrestling, Sting has been a multi-time World Champion, having defeated such stars as Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, and countless others. After a two year hiatus from the ring, Sting exploded back on to the scene in 2006 to reignite an unsettled feud with Jeff Jarrett. Within his first six months in TNA, he captured his 8th Heavyweight Title at TNA’s most illustrious event, Bound for Glory. Sting would continue to mark Bound for Glory as his territory. He captured the TNA World Heavyweight Title three consecutive years at Bound for Glory. Each victory would continue to cement his legacy, as he defeated Jeff Jarrett, Kurt Angle, and Samoa Joe.

At “Slammiversary X,” Sting earned TNA’s inaugural Hall of Fame distinction for his loyalty and unmistakable presence in the ring and out. Truly an “Icon,” Sting continues to stand shoulder to shoulder with Hulk Hogan as a legendary leader of the IMPACT stable of superstars. Though he mostly commands the room with his words these days, don’t be surprised to see Sting stand up to anyone who thinks he’s lost a step over the years. (TNA Wrestling)
