Good Old JR (via CBSSports.com) is reporting Ray Traylor will be the next person revealed as an inductee in the WWE HOF.

Good? Deserved?


Of course my spell check messes up Man.

Good and I think deserved. He was a solid midcarder in the Hogan days. My favorite is when he came back as Mr. McMahon's bodyguard and stayed way longer than I expected and ended up giving us hilarity such as Big Show's dad's funeral.

Sure, there's a line of people who deserve to be in before him, but I think he should have a spot.

Bossman's original run was hot fire, he was over as a heel and face, and worked a pretty agile style for a late 80s big man. He could get in for that alone.

His WCW stint was forgettable.

His return as McMahon's lead henchman and later guy booked in head slapping angles is basically the same thing we have been getting from Kane the last five years.

It's a worked Hall of Fame so debating merit is sort of pointless, but they are letting Godfather in this year so the bar has been set pretty low.

I'm actually surprised he's not in already.

I feel like the criteria for WWE HOF induction is now if your average 40-year-old is able to go "oh shit, I remember that guy!"

Oh God, that was such a groan-inducing "I can't believe I'm laughing at this" moment.

Absolutely deserved. He was one of the great characters.

I listened to Flair's podcast with Austin last week, and they both had nothing but GREAT things to say about BM/Trailor. This is worth the listen just for Austin's impression of Ray's voice.

Well deserved, indeed.

I grew up on Mid-Atlantic/NWA before it became WCW, and Big Bubba Rogers was a MONSTER. He might have been the first guy of his size I saw regularly, and, along with the Midnight Express, he gave Cornette a stable and an entree into singles angles.

He came back years later to work against Sting and Vader, allowing some variety to that long feud. He may be going in as Bossman, but I see this as an honor for his entire career.

His induction also explains his inclusion in the recent video game download.

Indeed, when Dusty busted him over the head with the wooden chair and he no sold it, I was legit terrified of the guy.


Speaking of which, when is the Midnight Express going in?

When either Vince McMahon dies, Jim Cornette dies, or hell freezes over.



I'm Charlie Owens, good night, and good luck.

On last weeks SD and RAW, did anyone spot some more subtle tributes to the fallen? Things the audience might not catch, I mean. I wondered if Storm's "Woooo!" was not such a tribute to Stu through his son.
