WWE Hall of Fame 2012 - Ron Simmons

Last night it was announced that former WCW World Champion Ron Simmons will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame during Wrestlemania Weekend.

Here is Ron Simmons during his time with JBL as the Acolyte Protection Agency (The APA).   This is early on as they were still the Undertaker's Acolytes and Ron Simmons was still going by the absurd name Farooq.  They are delivering a butt whipping to the very young Jeff and Matt Hardy on Monday Night RAW.

 SORENSEN SUFFERS C1 VERTEBRAE FRACTURE
- Jesse Sorensen has suffered a C1 vertebrae fracture with spinal cord edema
(swelling) according to a message released by TNA's President Dixie Carter.
Sorensen was injured after a botched moonsault which saw his opponent's knee
strike his head upon landing, knocking him out completely upon impact. The
match - against Zema Ion to determine the number one contender for the X
Division title - was stopped and Ion was awarded the match via count out.
"He is slowly regaining feeling and movement in his arms and legs. He wants
to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Once we speak to the
neurosurgeon, we will pass on more details," read Carter's short message.

TNA AND VINCE RUSSO OFFICIALLY PART WAYS
- TNA President Dixie Carter announced that the company has parted ways with
Vince Russo, the creative writer who has been working for the company since
2002 except for two years between 2004 and 2006. "The separation is amicable
and professional. We are glad for the opportunity to have worked together
and wish each other nothing but good luck and success in the future," read
the statement, posted on Twitter. Russo was not at the Against All Odds
pay-per-view on Sunday and David Lagana, a former WWE writer himself who was
hired by TNA late last year, was onboard to help out. His relationship with
the company wasn't always the best and in October he stepped down as head
writer and was replaced by Bruce Prichard. Russo also had past problems with
Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan and their arrival created some controversy
however the trio always managed to find a way to work together. Prior to
joining TNA, Russo served as a writer for both WWE and WCW and is often
credited for the WWE Attitude Era storylines that catapulted WWE over WCW.
He eventually left for the competition but disagreements with management -
including Hogan and Bischoff - led to a disastrous run in WCW.



> UNDERTAKER CUTS HIS HAIR...ER...WIG DURING RAW VIGNETTE
- During yesterday's RAW, a second vignette with the Undertaker was aired
showing the future Hall of Famer getting a razor blade and cutting his hair
saying vengeance will be his. When the Undertaker returned two weeks ago he
was sporting a wig to cover the fact that a few months ago he actually
shaved his head completely bald. While the wig may not have been apparent to
many people on that night, wrestling with a wig would have been pretty risky
considering the several humiliating scenarios. Showing the Undertaker
cutting his hair on television was the best way to explain why come
WrestleMania there will be less at the top! You can see a photo of a bald
Undertaker which was taken a few months ago at http://w-o.it/w386Rz



> SMACKDOWN RATING
- Smackdown last Friday night pulled a 2.17 rating and 3,261,000 viewers,
down slightly from the 2.19 rating of the previous week but an additional
67,000 viewers overall. (Ratings compiled by Nielsen Media Research and put
online by PWInsider.com)
