WWE officially announced that the Von Erich family will be inducted to this year’s WWE Hall Of Fame 2009 class. The announcement was made on the WWE.com website despite not being mentioned during RAW last night – even with the show in San Antonio, Texas.
The belief is WWE was paranoid about bad publicity from the death of Andrew "Test" Martin, which surprisingly was not acknowledged with a graphic to open the show – as is the tradition. The reason behind it is out of the five Von Erich sons, four died before the 34th birthday.
There are at least one Hall of Fame induction left, possibly two, before WrestleMania weekend – where the ceremony will be held.
