Dory Funk Jr. Comments On Lita In WWE Hall Of Fame, JR's Latest FOX Sports Column, Ladd, Austin

- WWE Hall of Famer Dory Funk Jr., who trained Lita, commented on his former student being inducted into this year's WWE Hall of Fame. He wrote:

"Lita was in the First Funking Conservatory training camp. She was the only girl in camp with 15 other men. Nothing was easy. She earned their respect by working hard and asking no privileges because she was a girl. After a double training session on the first day of training, she was up the next morning at 5:00am for a photo shoot with !BANG! TV producer and photographer Marti Funk on the Rainbow River. Lita came directly from the two hour photo shoot to training in the gym at 8:00am."

- Speaking of Hall of Famers, Jim Ross' latest column at FOX Sports looks at the career of the late, great Ernie Ladd. JR talks about the obstacles that Ladd had to face, and noted how Ladd helped make the career of The Junkyard Dog, who Ross called "arguably, the biggest box office attraction of any man of color until the Rock came along in the late 1990s." It's a great read, you can check it out here.
