As we noted before, The Bushwhackers would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2015, the night before WrestleMania 31. According to latest reports, former WWE Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and current employee John Laurinaitis will induct the tag team into the Hall of Fame.
The reason for choosing Laurinaitis to do the induction is because he got his big break in pro-wrestling as the flag holder for the team when they were known as The Sheepherders back in the days of Championship Wrestling from Florida. John Laurinaitis was known as Johny Ace back then.
As we noted a few days back, Bushwhacker Luke confirmed that Bushwhacker Butch will attend the Hall of Fame ceremony. Here’s what he had to say :
“He left me in 2002 due to sickness. He was in the hospital for 12 weeks, in a really bad state. He was in ICU for 11 days, arms strapped down and on tranquilizer. If I hadn’t found him, a few hours later he would have been dead. He’s much better now. After the 12 weeks he packed up and went home to be with his kids and grand kids. In 2010, he had a relapse and woke up in the hospital. They took his hip out, and didn’t put another one in until 2012. He will be using crutches, but he will be at the Hall of Fame.”
