    I only know Jerry Graham as Vince McMahon's favourite wrestlers of all time.

    Farmer Burns...was he the first talent to appear in a wedding segment?

    And Toots Mondt is a famous promoter who co-promoted with Vince's grandfather, Jess McMahon.

    I've never heard of Lindsay or Grable, Byers I've heard in passing but know nothing about.

    Now to check Wikipedia to see how accurate I was.

    Rikidozan's is a very interesting story, given the treatment of Koreans by the Japanese during the occupation, his ties to North Korea and he was murdered by the Yakuza.

    AT this rate, every wrestler will be inducted in about 10 years time.

    Imagine the year when Doink, Kurgan, Gillberg and Nicole Bass all get entered in.
