WWE Hall of Fame 2012 - Yokozuna

 It was announced during the Smackdown tapings yesterday that the next
entry in the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2012 will be former WWE champion
Yokozuna. The Samoan Superstar made his WWE debut in late 1992 and was
managed by Mr. Fuji and it took only a couple of months for him to capture
the WWE title. At WrestleMania IX, he successfully defeated Bret Hart in
the main event to win the title, only to lose it minutes later to Hulk
Hogan. Yokozuna eventually went on to regain the title a few months later
at King of the Ring 1993 by defeating Hogan and kept the title till
WrestleMania X in Madison Sqaure Garden where he was defeated by Bret
Hart. He had successful feuds with Lex Luger and the Undertaker and then
teamed with Owen Hart to capture the tag team titles twice. In 1998 he was
released from WWE and passed away on October 23, 2000, in his room in
Liverpool, England, while on tour for a wrestling company. Yokozuna - real
name Rodney Anoa'i - is the cousin of The Rock, Rikishi, Umaga and other
famous wrestlers who come from the Anoa'i family.

Doug Furnas RIP

Sadly we have lost another great former pro wrestler in Doug Furnas.  He passed on Friday March 2nd at the way too young age of 52 from heart failure.

Slam Wrestling with the story here  and also read here

Known mostly as a tag team wrestler with long time partner Phil Lafon (who sometimes wrestled under then name Dan Kroffat) in Japan, they did have a short run in the US with the WWF, WCW and ECW but no real success.  They were extremely popular and successful in Japan, winning the AJPW Tag Team titles and AJPW All Asia tag team titles on several occasions.

Here from 1989, the CanAm Express were on their way up the ladder in AJPW as they faced the legendary British Bulldogs in a great match.

Wrestlemania 26: Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels

 As we head down the road to Wrestlemania 28 and the most talked about match so far is the HHH vs Undertaker match from WM 27.   Will HHH stop the streak of the Undertaker?   Well in 2010 everyone wanted to see Shawn Michaels end the streak of UT and cement himself as a legend (like he needs any help) and here as our match of the day is the Undertaker putting his undefeated streak on the line against the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 26
