Bob Backlund enters the WWE HOF

Today, the WWE has announced their second inductee to the 2013 Hall of Fame Class. Former two time WWE World Heavyweight Champion; Bob Backlund is taking his rightful place in the Hall. His first World Title reign lasted a whopping six years, and he headlined countless main events in the fabled Madison Square Gardens. Backlund was a technical marvel, and he bested challenger after challenger. He lost the belt to the Iron Sheik in December of 1983, and was barely a factor in the then named WWF after, as Hulk Hogan took the belt from the Sheik and the Vince McMahon owned fed, moved in a different direction.
