Although the majority of pro wrestling fans assumed -- and even voted for -- Lita to induct legendary WWE Diva Trish Stratus into the WWE Hall of Fame on Sat., April 6, 2013, at Madison Square Garden in New York, she will not be the one doing the honors.
Just last night, Stratus said her choice would become clear and obvious once she gave her speech and we would know soon enough exactly who that person will be. It turns out tonight was the night.
That's because the company once again used Twitter to get the news out. First, Stratus asked Stephanie McMahon to do the honors:
I'd be honored if @stephmcmahon would be a part of the biggest nite of my career & inducts me into @wwe #HOF, Steph will u do me the honor?— Trish Stratus (@trishstratuscom) April 2, 2013
And her response was:
"@trishstratuscom: Yes!!!It would be my pleasure to induct one of the greatest Divas of all time in to the #WWEHOF #overwhelmed #honored— Stephanie McMahon (@StephMcMahon) April 2, 2013
And there you have it. Surprised? Disappointed? Care at all in any way?
Here's the Hall of Fame 2013 class, along with those inducting each member:
- Bruno Sammartino (Arnold Schwarzenegger)
- Bob Backlund (Maria Menounos)
- Mick Foley (Terry Funk)
- Trish Stratus (Stephanie McMahon)
- Booker T (Unannounced)
- Donald Trump (Unannounced)
