Sorry I’m a little late on this news, but WWE has released three more inductees names to go along with Stone Cold Steve Austin in the 2009 Hall of Fame class. Along with SCSA, The Funk Brothers and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat will be inducted over the Wrestlemania weekend this coming April. Now as a kid I wasn’t a fan of Steamboat, as I liked the bad guys, so I never got into his work. Watching now though I can definitely respect this mans career. As for the Funks, they are two crazy sons of bitches that are a dream to watch. Where they may not be the most graceful in the ring, they can definitely put on a great show and will make you tap with their devastating spinning toe holds. For Terry Funk alone, watch Clash of the Champions 1989, Funk wrestles Ric Flair in an I Quit Match. During this match, Funk uses an actual plastic shopping bag to suffocate Flair into quitting….good stuff. My only problem is that Mick Foley will not be able to induct his good friend Terry Funk into the HOF as he currently works for TNA, but I’m pretty sure they will have someone great to induct him and his brother.
