Big No Way Out Match Change, HOF Backstage Rumors

Ryan Clark


As noted earlier, Jim Ross and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. However, WWE has yet to officially announce this, but they most certainly will within the next few weeks on RAW. There are six more editions of WWE RAW to go until WrestleMania 23. WWE will be announcing a new entrant, or entrants if they are part of a group or tag team, each week on RAW during the ensuing weeks. If you add Ross & Lawler in, that leaves four spots left.

The tag team of Afa & Sika is a lock to go in considering that WWE recently called them about it. Two other likely entrants are The Shiek and the Von Erich family. One of the reasons that Sabu wasn’t fired back in the fall when he probably would have been was because they wanted him to induct The Shiek into the HOF this year. Also, The Shiek was a native of Detroit, the site of this year’s WrestleMania. Kevin Von Erich is currently on board with WWE for two projects. He hosts a World Class Championship Wrestling show on WWE 24/7 with Michael Hayes. Also, WWE plans on releasing a DVD on the WCCW this September, The Triumph and Tragedy of World Class Championship Wrestling. This deal would be similar to last year’s deal with Verne Gagne and the subsequent AWA DVD release.

Dave Meltzer is reporting that the Fit Finlay vs. Boogeyman match shedualed for No Way Out is now Finlay & Little Bastard vs. Boogeyman & Mini Boogeyman. Mini Boogeyman will be played by a local independent midget wrestler.
