We broke here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com Premium on February 19, 2013 that WWE was targeting a major name to induct Bruno Sammartino into their Hall of Fame. That name is Arnold Schwarzenegger and as of this writing, negotiations remain ongoing.
As for the other inductors, here’s the latest:
- Mick Foley said he would like either Terry Funk or Jim Ross to induct him. We heard WWE contacted Funk about appearing for them over Wrestlemania weekend and reported it here.
- Bob Backlund will either be inducted by Sgt. Slaughter or “Extra” host Maria Menounos
- Trish Stratus will either select Amy “Lita” Dumas or Finlay
- It’s believed Donald Trump will be inducted by his daughter Ivanka.
