– WWE held a public auction in Houston, Texas on April 1st that raised around $45,000 for the Houston Public Library Foundation.
– WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart was recently interviewed by the Wrestling Epicenter and when asked if he would induct Shawn Michaels into the Hall of Fame, he said he didn’t think so. Bret has told WWE that he would like to induct his brother Owen or father Stu into the Hall. According to one source close to the Hall of Fame process, people are apprehensive about Owen going in because of the situation surrounding his death. Owen has gotten votes to enter the Hall but there is a fear that there’s always a chance of Martha Hart, Owen’s wife, saying things publicly that would “be detrimental to a feel good Hall of Fame promotion.”
