• WWE Hall Of Fame 2023 Update On Konnan

This Friday night after WrestleMania SmackDown goes off the air, Rey Mysterio is going to headline the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2023.

Los Angeles Times recently reported that WCW Veteran Konnan will induct Mysterio into the Hall of Fame on March 31st.

Rey reportedly asked for Konnan and Triple H approved it.

On his Keepin It 100 podcast, Konnan was asked how his induction speech is coming, and he said the following:

“Until WWE announces it, I won’t be doing one. So, they haven’t announced it.”

In 2022, we reported that Konnan was dealing with serious health issues and even needed a kidney donor at one point.

The former WCW United States Champion then started dialysis for his problems and his health has since improved because of it.

Here’s what the Wrestling Observer reported about it:

“Konnan’s health has gotten better since going on dialysis. Before that point, his kidney issues led to all kinds of problems including the loss of taste in his mouth and he lost 70 pounds and was getting maybe two hours of sleep a night, which spiraled things even worse. It is a lot better now, as he can taste and he’s getting sleep.”

Konnan joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1992 and became The Comet Kid (Max Moon), but abruptly left the promotion after a disagreement with Vince McMahon, and the gimmick was given to Paul Diamond instead.

After a brief stint in Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling in 1995, Konnan joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in January 1996 and quickly made a name for himself there and eventually joined the legendary new World order faction, and later on its nWo Wolfpac version.
