- Several stars took to their Twitters to react to last night's announcement on RAW that Bob Backlund would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. Here are some of their messages:
Kevin Nash: "Congratulations to Bob Backland on HOF Thank you for what you did for me at MSG." [Nash defeated Backlund at MSG for his first WWF Championship]
Jim Ross: "Congrats to Bob Backlund on being a member of #WWE HOF class of 2013. I forgive him 4 applying chicken wing on me back in the day. :)"
Tommy Dreamer: "Congrats to Bob Backlund in @WWE HOF well deserved very happy for him 1st wrestler I ever saw. He started the dream 4 me. I got my tux"
Howard Finkel?: "I am delighted that the great Bob Backlund is being inducted into WWE's Hall of Fame, Class of 2013. It's a well deserved honor for him!!"
Hard to believe that Bob Backlund wasn't previously in the #WWE Hall of Fame. A long overdue induction. Congrats, Mr. Backlund! #PWI #km
