The Hall of Fame class could grow...
- Maria Kanellis is scheduled to induct Bob Backlund into the WWE Hall of Fame this year.
Kanellis was contacted about returning to the company for a proposed "Past Divas vs Present Divas" match at Wrestlemania 29, but it doesn't appear that match is happening anymore.
- After the announcement that Booker T will go into the WWE Hall of Fame this year, another name being discussed for this year is former WWWF Tag Team Champion Dominic DeNucci. DeNucci is a close friend of Bruno Sammartino and trained Mick Foley. With this year's class as stacked as it is, it's unknown if DeNucci will go in.
- Even with the cold weather in New York this week, there isn't any concern in WWE about bad weather for Wrestlemania 29. If you look at historical weather data for April 7 in the area, the average high is 59 degrees and the average low is 37 degrees. The record high is 78 degrees and the record low is 17 degrees. The Old Farmer's Almanac predicts "sunny" and "pleasant" weather for the week.
