JBL also received the Lou Thesz Award while Severn received the George Tragos award.
JBL celebrated Saturday night with Jim Ross, Gerald Brisco and others. Sometime during the night, he had his Twitter account hacked:
“I am gay. #dontputthatontheinternet, I am coming out of the closet tonite in Waterloo #dontputthatontheinternet”
JBL later apologized:
“Wow! Got hacked! Not gay, but nothing wrong with it, sorry for hacking!”

Regarding Kurt Angle’s induction, he was not there in person to accept. Angle claimed he couldn’t attend due to obligations to TNA but he did not work last night’s TNA live event in Memphis, Tennessee. Jim Ross revealed that Angle’s award was auctioned off for $250 at the Hall of Fame ceremony:
“Kurt Angle was unable to attend the HOF in Waterloo 2nite. Jerry Brisco auctioned off the award 4 $250.”
