The New York Post is reporting that Mick Foley will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on Saturday, April 6, 2013 from Madison Square Garden in New York City. An official announcement is expected to take place on next week’s episode of WWE Raw, the 20th Anniversary special, from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
While the New York Post has been known to be wrong, especially when it comes to reporting pro wrestling news, this could have validity due to what I’ve been told over the past several weeks.
We reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com Premium on 12/3 that Vince McMahon issued an edict that Foley’s character was to be protected and even spoke out against Triple H when a snide comment was made about him. The thinking was if he ended up being the face of the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame, he needed to be held in the same regard as other WWE Legends.
