WWE: Another Former Star To Return?, UK Ad Campaign & Hall of Fame Latest

– Another former WWE star may be returning to World Wrestling Entertainment. That former WWE star is none other than Henry O. Godwin, the mid-90’s wrestler with the pig farmer gimmick. He is currently training in Ohio Valley Wrestling in hopes of returning to WWE. Mark Canterbury recently turned 42 years old. He was forced to retire in 1998 due to a neck injury.

– World Wrestling Entertainment plan on launching a $5 million national branding advertising campaign in the UK that will run through the end of April. WWE will be touring the UK in April.

– WWE have two slots left for the 2006 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony. Tony Atlas seems to be the most likely candidate to being announced over the next two weeks. The other likely candidates are Blackjack Lanza and Blackjack Mulligan, to be inducted together as a tag team. The one thing holding them back from being inducted is that Blackjack Mulligan doesn’t like to travel and leave his home. He’s been suffering from depression, psychological problems and health issues in recent years. At one point, he was seeing very few people, not including his son Barry Windham, although, he is seeing his family regularly again now. Mulligan indicated to a friend that he would not be attending the Hall of Fame ceremony, although, he also said that he could change his mind if Vince McMahon personally talked him into attending.
