    Because, you know, she and Bob go way back! lol

  2. MC Live says:

    That’s the only problem with Bruno and Backlund, who the hell is still alive to induct them

  3. echo says:

    Kevin Nash or Bret Hart are possible choices to induct him.

  4. MiZery says:

    Bret Hart for sure with Backlund…
    The first person that came to mind for Bruno was Larry Z., but lets not hold our breaths.

  5. Jamie says:

    If it’s mainstream publicity they want, why not have Maria induct Donald Trump? That way the wrestler can be inducted by a wrestler

  6. JJ says:

    I would imagine that Maria would induct either Trump or Trish

  7. mth says:

    Everything I’ve read on it says the person getting inducted chooses who inducts them. So, if this is anything more than a rumor, it’s because it’s what Backlund wants.

  8. James says:

    What about Ivan Koloff to induct Bruno, as he’s the one that ended his historic reign.

    As for Backlund, I say either Superstar Billy Graham, The Iron Sheik, Bret Hart, or Kevin Nash.

    And I agree with Jamie. Let the wrestlers induct wrestlers.

  9. Pat says:

    Maria is friends with Bob Backlund. She appeared on camera at SummerSlam last year wearing a Bob Backlund t-shirt. Considering her profession, she is good on camera and is a good public speaker, ideal skills for inducting someone into the Hall of Fame. Finally, she was featured in a previous WrestleMania match. To me, this would be similar to when Wade Boggs inducted Curt Hennig, not like when William Shatner inducted Lawler. She’s a mainstream television personality who respects wrestling and is a fan and friend of Bob Backlund.

  10. The Sheild says:

    Hart should induct Backland, & if nobody else maybe Vince could induct Bruno

  11. Ostego says:

    What about the Iron Sheik? You know, they did have a long feud and he is also in the HoF.

  12. -J- says:

    ahh trolling at the hof.

  13. James says:

    Since Triple H is the one responsible for Bruno finally accepting the induction it stands to reason he should induct him

  14. Joan B. in S. C. says:

    @mth, when Dory Funk, Jr. was inducted, he also thought you got to pick the person. It’s said Dory contacted Bret Hart about inducting him, before he found out you didn’t get a choice.

  15. Bryan says:

    She has no business inducting ANYONE in the Hall of Fame. Please go away from the WWE.
