WWE HoF Inductors – Major Name For Bruno & Who Is Inducting The Others

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.

    Is Foley still the headliner??? Because it would be a shame if he wasn’t. Nobody cares about Bruno! Nobody!!!

      Just because I dont know as much about Bruno as I do about Foley doesnt mean that Bruno doesnt deserve it more. The Hardcore legend doesnt compare to the person who held the title longer than anyone ever has or will. Oh and did you notice the admin deleted your spoilers on the other page :P

      By nobody I assume you mean yourself. I wasn’t around for Bruno and am a huge Foley fan, but Bruno is the headline and should stay the headliner

  • Kerri

    In my opinion, Lita being the one who inducts Trish could possibly be the best one of the night.

    • Cfmsu93

      If only Mickie James wasn’t in TNA, she could be the one to Induct Stratus after all they went through lol

  • sir-rusty82

    Why would they even consider Finlay inducting Trish, the second I found out Trish would be in the HoF I expected it to be Lita especially with Lita being behind the scenes alot and dating Punk

    • John

      Finlay was essentially Trish’s mentor in her early days with WWE, & is widely considered to be responsible for her rise to stardom.

      • Kerri

        While that’s true, I don’t see many casual or younger fans of today really knowing or caring that Finlay did that with Trish. Granted Lita hasn’t been seen since the summer but more of today’s fans would recognize her before Finlay.

        And come on, seeing Trish inducted by her biggest rival, who fans love vs her trainer? Seriously, that’s a no-brainer.

        • Snap

          When you get right down to it, isn’t it all about TRISH being inducted into the Hall of Fame? It doesn’t matter if the casual/younger/general fans don’t know or care about who is inducting her into the Hall of Fame, it’s Trish’s moment.

        • John

          I see your point, however i would expect their to be a very small percentage of people attending the Hall of Fame, will have ever seen Bruno Sammartino wrestle, or even know what he accomplished in his lifetime, yet he is the headliner.

          Having said that, they did have Vince McMahon induct Stone Cold into the hall of fame, even though it should’ve been JR.

  • John

    Vince should be inducting Donald Trump.

  • Ricky

    Donald Trump makes more sense than Pete Rose and Drew Carey
    Am wondering when they will induct Chuck Norris.

    • Cfmsu93

      Chuck Norris doesn’t get inducted into the Hall of Fame, The hall of fame gets inducted into the Hall of Chuck Norris.

  • Frenchfry

    Lita should induct Trish!

    Ok so should I cancel my premium account because Richard is giving it away now on delay? Seriously stop taking advantage of us loyal premium members

  • Dangerous Lee

    Bruno is against steroid use and he’s getting inducted by a man very well known for using steroids…AH-NOLD.

  • George Waldman

    Either one of the choices to induct bob Backlund makes no sense to me, ESPECIALLY Maria Menounos. Why HER, of all people?

  • PFElton

    Finlay should induct Trish Stratus as he’s the one who built the Diva’s division to near-decency 8, 10 years ago.

  • Mediocre Writer

    While I can understand Finley it would be good to see Lita induct Trish so Trish can return the favour in a few years :)
