- WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler spoke with Scott Fishman of The Miami Herald this week to promote the Hall of Fame tickets going on sale. Here are a few highlights:
“We know how young Edge is, but because of his physical condition, his career was cut short. In that respect, he has come to the end of his wrestling career, but when you look back, he was such an amazing performer and accomplished so much in a short time to become worthy of being in the Hall of Fame. He is a special individual. I think it’s great he is going to be in there.
His popularity is worldwide. It’s just tremendous. I don’t think there will be anyone out there saying he shouldn’t be in there because he is too young. Here is a guy who has accomplished so much that everybody I have talked to since it was announced is just excited for Edge.”
The Horsemen Induction:
“Ric Flair having two rings is going to make a lot of people a little bit jealous. Though there is no way you can say the Four Horsemen are not worthy of being inducted in the Hall of Fame because, as a group, industry-wide, they were as formidable a group of talent that there ever has been. Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard, I’m excited for them. J.J. Dillon has always been a favorite of mine.”
