Bob Uecker to be inducted into WWE Hall of Fame

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Announcing legend and Milwaukee Brewers enthusiast Bob Uecker will add another impressive honor to his long resume this Saturday when he is inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in Phoenix.

Uecker's finest wrestling-related moments came in in 1987, when he did the play-by-play for Wrestlemania III at the Pontiac Silverdome, and a year later when he was the backstage interviewer at WrestleMania IV in Atlantic City.

As you can see, it took a brave man to question Andre the Giant.

The ceremony is part of WrestleMania week. Other inductees include Gorgeous George, Ted "The Million Dollar Man" DiBiase Sr., former Women's Champion Wendi Richter, Maurice "Mad Dog" Vachon, Stu Hart and Japanese legend Antonio Inoki.

Interested parties can watch the proceedings on USA Network at 11 p.m. ET.
