News On WWE's 2013 Hall Of Fame Ceremony: Inductees, MSG Drama
It was recently announced that the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony will take place on Saturday, April 6th from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Despite the fact that WrestleMania 29 is being billed as taking place from “NY/NJ”, WWE has reportedly had some issues regarding holding the HOF ceremony from New York City, due to their agreement with the state of New Jersey regarding where WrestleMania-week events will be held.
It’s no secret that WWE was pushing hard for Bruno Sammartino to be the top name inducted into the Hall of Fame next year, but at this point, there’s virtually no chance of that happening. Other names discussed for next year’s class include Bob Backlund, Mick Foley, Kevin Nash and the Ultimate Warrior.
Tensions between Warrior and WWE have died down lately and the two sides are currently on the best terms that they’ve been on in several years. Getting Warrior to agree to work with WWE again for the first time since 1996 would be seen as a huge deal for WWE, he is notoriously difficult to work with and there is always the risk that they come to an agreement, WWE announces Warrior’s involvement and then the two sides have another falling out.
