Trish Stratus Weighs In On Her Fellow Hall of Fame Inductees; CM Punk Meets Gunshot Victim

-Wrestling News World reader Jeff sent word that Trish Stratus weighed in on her fellow WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2013 inductees on her official website. Excerpts for each inductee are below:

Mick Foley: No other Superstar has given more blood, sweat and tears to this industry and for his fans than Mick Foley has.

Bob Backlund: To hold the title as long as Backlund did is an impressive feat with so many great contenders of his day.

Bruno Sammartino: WWE.com quoted Trish recently on Bruno’s induction: “A long time coming, without the presence of Sammartino in the Hall of Fame is like the Hockey Hall of Fame with no Wayne Gretzky.”

Donald Trump: It’s great to see someone of his stature who appreciates our product and just ‘gets it’. I was thrilled to learn we will be inducted into the same class.

Trish Stratus: I’m just so honored to be taking my place alongside WWE’s greatest, as a wrestling fan – I’m kind of blown away! It’s simply amazing.

-Wrestling News World reader Ian Davids sent word that CM Punk finally met Tom Dotterer, the elderly gunshot victim, today. James Gaddis of NewChannel 9 in Syracuse posted the following picture on his Twitter account:

    Richard, do you know what the behind the scenes story of the whole Punk and the gun shot guy is? Are they doing this just for the publicity, or did Punk really pull and want to meet this guy because of his awesome and well timed comment?

      I think it is probably a bit of both, with Punk wanting to meet him and WWE taking the opportunity to get some publicity out of it.

      Punk really did want to meet the guy, since when he first heard about him. He’s kept up with the story and made sure WWE had arrangements have Tom at their show show yesterday. But due to complications steeming from that incident, he was unable to attend. So before the show, CM Punk went to visit him in the hospital.
