Two For The W.W.E. Hall

Ted Dibiase is the first announced entry into this year’s W.W.E. Hall of Fame. As a wrestler he was known as the “million dollar man” and even had his own championship made with diamonds, etc. that he referred to as the “million dollar” belt. I’m not sure of the exact cost but it definitely was not worth a million shekels, nor was it something that you could pick up at the local five and dime. Regardless, DiBiase was one of the best technical wrestlers of the last 25 years. The fact that he made it in the W.W.E. showed how great he was. Back then the W.W.E. resembled a bodybuilding federation. DiBiase was all about wrestling ability and could talk better than most. I'm sure they will do some kind of "my hall of fame dad is better than yours" involving Ted's son Ted and Cody Rhodes.

Also, Antonio Inoki, who once took on Muhammad Ali in 1976, is headed for the W.W.E. Hall of Fame. Inoki was another great technical wrestler, however, I have seen very little of him as he mostly wrestled in Japan. So I can’t comment further about what Inoki could do inside the squared circle, but his accomplishments are well-documented.
