WWE: Names Being Considered For The 2009 Hall of Fame

Wrestling Observer is reporting that a group of "Texas Legends" are likely to be inducted the night before WrestleMania XV (25) in Houston, TX. Names being considered are: Terry Funk & Dory Funk, Jr., The Von Erichs, & Stone Cold Steve Austin. WWE currently lacks "main event" talent for the Hall of Fame, with the only big names left are Stone Cold, The Rock, & Mick Foley. Even if the WWE could get Bruno Sammartino, the odds are that nobody outside of the Northeastern United States really considers Sammartino a "main eventer" anymore. Randy Savage is another option, but is highly unlikely. Also, despite Hulk Hogan’s proclamations, "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes will likely induct Eddie Graham into this year’s Hall of Fame.
