  • David “Ranter”

    Iowa isn’t known for potatoes for 1 for 2 its the reason I almost didn’t like the comment since I thought everyone knew that.. for 3 yes I will agree somewhat about the Hall of Fame in WWE being a joke to a degree but they have put in alot of them who should be. Respect!

  • The Suicide Destroyer

    Idaho is known for the potatoes, not Iowa…..

    The title should say: “Nature Boy” Ric Flair To Be Inducted Into A REAL Wrestling Hall of Fame. C’mon it’s the only thing Iowa has besides potatoes.
