– Yokozuna is expected to be announced for induction into the WWE Hall of Fame tonight on Raw SuperShow.

The wrestling legends contested in championship matches at WrestleMania IX and WrestleMania X.

Yokozuna, whose real name is Rodney Anoa’i, died from Pulmonary edema on October 23, 2000.

— The Miz will be chatting live on USANetwork.com during the East Coast airing of Psych Wednesday at 10:00 p.m.

— Former WWE Superstar Carlito wrote of his recent encounter with Bret Hart at an independent show, “I think he was surprised I was still alive or just looks at me like I’m a waste of talent. Lol, hes a real good dude though!”

    kitrock – Benoit is not going into the Hall of Fame as part of The Horsemen. Those being inducted into the HOF as part of the Horsemen are Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham, & JJ Dillion. Those are the only ones being inducted as part of the Horsemen.

    I think Yokozuna is very deserving of a posthumous HOF induction.

    He always moved with incredible grace for a man of his stature. And I remember reading in Bret Hart’s book that he was a very popular guy backstage as well. He was a memorable and much missed performer.

    Benoit is going in the HoF this year as part of the four horsemen.

    Those of you who disliked my first comment are a bunch of racists.

    Er, first Nick, where is he even mentioned to warrant such a response?

    wtf does that have to do anything with this

  • Nick

    benoit should not be in hall of fame

  • kitkrock

    Mark Henry is better than Yokozuna.

    RIP Yokozuna.

    It still seems like yesterday I was watching one of his matches on RAW. One of if not the best big man to ever wrestle. The dude was over 600 pounds and still kept you entertained to watch the whole match. Something most wrestlers today still can’t do.
