WWE announcer John “Bradshaw” Layfield has posted a new blog on his Facebook page looking at who he thinks should be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in April. Here’s what he wrote:
“Interesting viewpoints on WWE Hall of Fame for 2013. I do believe the NWO should eventually go in, I don’t know if this year is the year-but they had the greatest story line in wrestling history and think they are deserving to go in as a faction.
The NWO wasn’t together that long, but when you have the greatest impact in wrestling history I think it merits an induction. Many forget during that time WWE was losing the ratings battle and did so for almost a year, this ushered in the Attitude Era which I still believe was wrestling’s greatest era.
Owen Hart, Bruno Sammartino and Randy Savage are no brainers and feel they all will go in at some point.
Mick Foley is the other NY guy that is obviously worthy and hopefully goes in the hall in NY. Booker T is a Hall of Famer, but don’t know if NY is the place for him to go in-would be great to see him go in when Wrestlemania is in Houston, Dallas or San Antonio-but don’t know when that will be.
I believe Trish Stratus is a Hall of Famer and several from that era are as well-I think Sable and Torrie will one day go in, probably. Remember they were both at one time the highest selling Playboy issue on their respective covers. All of those divas from that era, including Stacey Kiebler transcended our business and became mainstream. ”
