2012 WWE Hall of Fame Update, Two Royal Rumble Matches Set, Vince-Del Rio

– Vince McMahon had been pushing Alberto Del Rio to be more physical, more aggressive and not to work the sometimes-softer Lucha style. While officials recognize their heel side if weak, Vince feels Del Rio has the size and toughness, plus is a main event character, but feels he needs to come across as more of a killer in the ring.

– John Cena vs. Kane and the 30-man Royal Rumble match are two matches official for the 2012 Royal Rumble pay-per-view.

– WWE has discussed inducting Carlos Colon into the 2012 Hall of Fame. WWE has a business relationship with Colon as he is their promoter when they’re in Puerto Rico. Plus, his son Primo and nephew Epico are on the roster.

WWE has previously announced Mexican legend Mil Mascaras for the 2012 Class.

    nice two royal rumbles this year lol!

  • Little Jimmy Dudley

    His Lordship died six years ago.

    This just in: WWE officials have leaked a story that Wrestlemania 28 will be held in Miami.

  • Kamala’s Foot

    Why are we talking about Owen Hart in this article. I think the rats ate his dead body by now.

  • whocares

    @Sean Mooney, Thank you! I was wondering when somebody would get that.
    How is Lord Alfred?


    we want EDGE in HOF !!!

  • Tom… Just Tom

    Carlos Colon in the HOF… NICE!!!

  • Sean Mooney

    @who cares

    Owen’s promo at Royal Rumble, “YOU’RE TOO DAMN SELFISH! And that’s why you’re sitting there with a bad leg, and that’s why I kicked your leg, out of your leg”. Epic. B) Thanks for bringing that up, watching it on YouTube now.

    I always loved Owen, but his 94 heel run was the best run of is career, in my opinion. RIP Owen, we miss you. I hope to one day see Owen in the HoF, until then… Macho Man for 2012 Hall of Fame.

    ADR Barely did any fucking Lucha moves anyway, everyone on here just finds it that they obviously know more about wrestling than Vince McMahon, right?

    when half of you don’t understand the meanings of Jobbing and Burying.

  • Edo. Risk

    Since were on the topic, is there gonna be a Money in The Bank match at the Money in the Bank PPV in 2012???

  • CC

    @findley. My thoughts exactly when I read the report.

  • erik

    the people who should be in 2012 hall of fame is owen hart, rickrude, stenier bros, sable lita trish stratus

  • Big T

    I miss Carlito as a mid-carder.

  • Chryogenos

    Owen will never go in the HoF if that bitch doesn’t die

  • John

    @findley. No kidding. I heard they might even have an elimination chamber match for Feb’s ELimination Chamber ppv. Possibly even 2. Haha

  • findley

    breaking news: royal rumble match confirmed for royal rumble

  • PinkSinCara

    Great. Take a taleneted guy like Del Rio and have him tone down his lucha style so he can punch and kick like everyone else for the cheap heat. Vince doesn’t understand or appreciate Mexican/Japanese wrestling, hence the lack of a cruiserweight division

  • wrestlemania 28 kane lays john cena out before the match looks like rock wont have to wrestle then someone comes out and annouce kane vs the rock! l

  • John

    Great so Kane (in all his masked glory) has been reduced to a filler fued with John Cena until The Rock comes back.

  • SusyRko

    I agre I like when Del Rio is aggressive

  • Bill

    We all pretty much know Rock’s getting inducted this year, but there’s still one name we all want in: The King of Hearts, Owen Hart!

  • MikeCRazy

    LOL@ Vince. WOW! He doesn’t know shit. The reason I stopped liking Del Rio was because he can submit any mid card character with his arm bar. But he can’t submit any main card character. WWE you hyped him up only to lose to Cena/Punk. How can the fans take anyone seriously when they can’t even beat Cena/Punk in clean fight? People were chatting Del Rio before they chatted holy shit at TCL when Del Rio kick Punk off the top rope and through the table. Vince if you want him to be a killer stop cutting his hype to Cena/Punk.

  • whocares

    I always preferred when wrestlers would have a match and still be in the rumble. Bret Hart had a match at the ’94 rumble, had his leg kicked out of his leg by Owen, and still was a co-winner with Lex Luger.

  • Titan

    Carlos Colon in the hall of fame!! Make it happen

  • cropsy

    Superstars have had matches and still competed in the rumble in the past. In fact just last year, randy orton and dolph ziggler were in the rumble after they had world title shots.

  • me

    kane should be IN the rumble, and more to the point he should also win it, fuck cena.
