Note on Abdullah the Butcher/WWE hall of fame

Mar 24, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck

– WWE.COM made changes to the Abdullah The Butcher write up in the Hall of Fame section, editing out two former WWE names and replacing them with two others. The original write up said, “Abdullah never brawled with Bruno Sammartino for the WWE Championship or went the distance with Bob Backlund in Madison Square Garden. These are dream matches that will never happen, but these icons will all be together when The Butcher takes his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2011.” A few days later the names of
Sammartino and Backlund were replaced with Hulk Hogan and Bret Hart while the rest of the wording remained the same. Some people took the sentence out of context and were saying that Sammartino and Backlund would be appearing in person at the Hall of Fame ceremony when the actual meaning was that Abdullah will join the growing list of names in the WWE Hall of Fame. The names were mainly replaced because Sammartino is not even in the Hall of Fame and is not on good terms with the company. (thanks to Colin Vassallo)
