WWE Hall of Fame 2013

 

Finally some good news.

 

Mick Foley to be inducted into WWE Hall of Fame

Mick Foley will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this April, The Post had learned.

 

According to sources, Foley, a three-time WWE Champion, will be honored at the company’s annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony which is held the night before Wrestlemania.

 

This year’s ceremony will be held at Madison Square Garden on Saturday April 6 with Wrestlemania 29 taking place at MetLife Stadium the following evening.

 

The Long Island resident debuted in 1986 and while not having the typical wrestler physique that other superstars of his era had, was a crowd favorite. Foley often switched between his three wrestling personas, Cactus Jack, Dude Love and Mankind during his career and is most famous for his no-holds-barred mentality in and out of the ring.

Good, fully deserved, and I'm VERY excited that it's Attitude Era time in the Hall of Fame. But, Mick, that's goodbye, PLEASE don't ever wrestle again.

Why wasn't he not already in?

 

The hadnt really started inducting youngish guys until recently, at which point he was in TNA.

Only just noticed that the induction ceremony is at MSG, so there's another reason they chose this one; they're inducting him in what is effectively his home town.

What other possibilities have New York connections? Is the Brawler in the HoF yet? Surely he'll go in now if he isn't already. Booker T's another New Yorker (well, his gimmick was) with half a chance. Edited by John Hancock

The Brawler cant go in, he's from Brooklyn and he wore a Nets jersey on TV, that shit will get him lynched in MSG! Plus, he's shit :lol

If I were a betting man, I'd nominate Bob Backlund. History in MSG, and deserves to be in there as much as anyone.

Foley is long overdue for the induction, but i agree, Foley... don"t wrestle again.

 

Backlund would be a great one for that and there is a slew of stars from the 60s 70s and early 80s who have tremendous MSG connections.

 

Still want to see an Owen Hart induction but is his widow still fighting with WWE?

Mick is awesome and this is well deserving. He is proof that you don't need to be the most athletic guy to be great at wrestling, you just have to love it and do whatever you can to send the fans home happy. And thats what he did, for almost 20 years.
