    Default Hall Of Fame *SPOILER*

    WWE want Arnold Schwarzenegger to induct Bruno:
    Bruno Sammartino recently revealed that WWE want a say in who inducts him in to the Hall of Fame. It’s now believed the front runner is Sammartino’s close friend Arnold Schwarzenegger. The pair have known each other since late 60s when they used to work out together in New York and California.

    Now with that being said I think that will happen for Bruno .
    Also .........

    Donald Trump in celebrity wing?:
    WWE have several celebrities in mind to be inducted in to the celebrity wing of the Hall of Fame this year. Donald Trump is leading the list, obviously having appeared several times for the company including at Wrestlemania in the “Battle of the Billionaires”, and being from New York. They are also looking at Cyndi Lauper.

    So with this being said it'll be interesting to see what happens between now and the ceremony.

    Tons of fans hate the fact WWE has a celebrity wing of the Hall of Fame, but I find it fitting considering how many celebrities have made an impact on WWE programming in some way. Trump should definitely be inducted.

    Trump and Bruno being inducted legitimizes the Hall of Fame for anyone that questioned it. I never did, but a lot of people do.

    IMO I'm glad they don't just focus on the wrestlers but also the celebrities that bring that much more excitement to the business so yeah they do deserve some recognition for what they put into the busness as well.

    Bruno, yes. Trump though? I don't see how inducting Trump "legitimizes" the Hall. I'm not one of the people who constantly craps on the Hall but I've thought for a long time that without Bruno and Randy Savage, it's flawed. I don't mind Trump or the celebrity wing but there is no celebrity that I look at and think that they NEED to be inducted. But if they are going to put a celebrity in, why haven't they inducted Tom "Zeus" Lister?

    Speaking of the celebrity wing, I think Arquette should go in just for donating the money from his WCW run to the families of Owen Hart, Brian Pillman and Droz.

    And being enough of a Smark to know he can use the whole 'Former World Champion' bit to piss off wrestling fans.

    I'm talking more about media attention. The media is more likely to cover the Hall of Fame with Trump being inducted than any other celebrity with WWE ties. Bruno legitimizes the HOF from a sport standpoint while Trump does it with the media.

    Trump should've been inducted back in 2008.
    It's showtime, folks!

    I do kinda wish they ran with the 'Trump owning WWE' angle longer, rather than dropping it the next week.

    Trump being called an entertainer is quite funny considering that is what the company labels the wrestlers today. Don't mind Trump, but I think Mr. T, Lauper, or Ali would have been more fitting since the HOF this year is basically using guys around that time to enter. Lauper and Mr. T were important to MSG for the original Mania.
    Who is the boss? Who made wrestling? Who is sports entertainment?

    Ahhh, gotcha. I see your point now and I admit it is valid. I just didn't get it earlier.

    This HOF class is the best in terms of hype/importance since the 2006 one featuring Bret Hart.

    Even though the HOF ceremony is in MSG this year, next year is the big 30th anniversary of Wrestlemania so I could see prominent figures of the very first Wrestlemania going in being just as fitting for next year.

    - Here's a look at the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame class and the latest word on who their possible inductors are:


    * Bruno Sammartino - Arnold Schwarzenegger


    * Mick Foley - Terry Funk or Jim Ross, or possibly both of them at the same time.


    * Bob Backlund - Sgt. Slaughter or Maria Menounos. Maria and Backlund are good friends and have worked together on a project in the past.


    * Trish Stratus - it could end up being Lita or Fit Finlay.


    * Donald Trump - his daughter Ivanka Trump.

    Looks like first class presenters, as well.

    "Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breath their final breath. And if what that man did in his life, makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory, of those who honor him and make whatever the man did live forever."

    Lita inducting Trish and then Trish inducting Lita later on would be awesome. Hope that happens.

    Bret Hart could be another great choice for Trish imo.

    -both canucks

    -he was her fave wrestler growing up

    -she ended her career by beating lita with his finisher the sharpshooter in honor of him
