- As noted earlier in this post, the 2017 WWE Hall of Famers received their rings from Triple H and Vince McMahon backstage at the Amway Center in Orlando. Above is more footage of Kurt Angle receiving his ring.
- We noted earlier via PWInsider
that WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross
has signed a new WWE deal that will see him call Brock Lesnar
vs. WWE Universal Champion Bill Goldberg
at WrestleMania 33
on Sunday. The new deal would also see Ross film WWE Network
projects and call the occasional match on TV. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer
reported that Ross will be a part of the WrestleMania 33
broadcast but that was the only part of the story that he could confirm at this point. It's now believed that Roman Reigns
vs. The Undertaker
will close WrestleMania and Ross calling that match would add to the speculation of Sunday being Taker's final match.
- Legacy Wing inductees for the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame were announced as Haystacks Calhoun, Judy Grable, Farmer Burns, Rikidozan, June Byers, Dr. Jerry Graham, Toots Mondt, Bearcat Wright and Luther Lindsay tonight.
