WWE Star’s Grandmother Pitched For Hall Of Fame

The WWE Hall of Fame is one of the highlights of WrestleMania weekend and now it seems an influential wrestling grandmother could be honoured.

Paul Heyman was the first name announced by WWE for the 2024 Hall Of Fame which will take place in Philadelphia, PA. That city is synonymous with Heyman’s ECW promotion and he is sure to receive a hero’s welcome there.

Heyman will be joined by Japanese legend Bull Nakano. Nakano had a short run in the WWE in the mid-nineties where her feud with Alundra Blayze saw the women trade the WWE Women’s Championship.

WWE announced The U.S. Express will also join the Hall Of Fame as the company honours Mike Rotunda and Barry Windham. The U.S. Express was on the original WrestleMania card and was part of the first title change in the event’s history as they lost the WWE Tag Team Championship to Nikolai Volkoff and The Iron Sheik.

The Rock Wants The Bloodline Honoured In WWE Hall Of Fame

Fightful Select has reported that with his new role on the TKO Board of Directors, The Rock is having his say this year over Hall of Fame inductees. The report notes that one name The Rock suggested for induction is his grandmother and the matriarch of The Bloodline, Lia Maivia.

Maivia was the wife of High Chief Peter Maivia and on his death in 1982, she took over the running of the Polynesian Pro Wrestling promotion in Hawaii. Lia Maivia passed away in 2008 at the age of 77.
