Despite frequent denials, Kevin Dunn apparently talked Jerry Lawler out of asking for legendary wrestling broadcaster Lance Russell as the person to introduce him for the WWE Hall of Fame. Dunn has been reported to have claimed that "No one knows who Lance Russell is".
Lawler claimed that the story wasn't true, and that Russell had some unnamed "personal problem" that would prevent him from performing the honor.
