2013 PRO WRESTLING HALL OF FAME INDUCTIONS THIS WEEKEND IN NY, FUNK RETURNING TO THE RING?, LOTS MORE

Lanny Poffo will be the emcee and master of ceremonies for the 2013 Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame this weekend in Amsterdam, NY with Sandor Szabo, Dick Shikat, Bill Watts, Baron Von Raschke, The Assassins {Jody Hamilton and Tom Renesto}, Tito Santana, Dick Murdoch, J.J. Dillon, El Santo and Joyce Grable being inducted. For complete details, visit www.PWHF.org. Terry Funk will be inducting Murdoch.

The night before Funk will be appearing at the 5/17 2CW event in Gloversville, NY, an event 2CW is promoting as part of the induction weekend. Funk will be appearing to answer the challenge of former ROH champion Kevin Steen, who called him out at 2CW's free iPPV over the weekend. While Funk is not advertised to wrestle, the implication is that there will be some sort of physical interaction between he and Steen. Funk has not wrestled since late 2011. Eddie Edwards, Spike Dudley and Slyck Wagner Brown have already been announced for the May event as well. For more on 2CW, visit www.2cwwrestling.com.

Among those scheduled to take part in and appear at the Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame ceremonies next week in Amsterdam, NY are JJ Dillon, Joyce Grable, Jody Hamilton, Baron Von Raschke, Tito Santana, Bill Watts, George Steele, The Destroyer Dick Beyer, Mae Young, Domenic Denucci, Buff Bagwell, Davey O'Hannon, Johnny Rodz, Funk, Paul Orndorff, Butcher Paul Vachon, Ray "Doink" Apollo, Wendi Richter, Jimmy Snuka, Steen, Eddie Edwards and more
