Honky Tonk Man Talks WWE Hall of Fame, Scotty Goldman Update, "The Wrestler"
— In an interview with the Ottawa Sun, wrestling legend The Honky Tonk Man says he will be Houston for Wrestlemania 25 and the WWE Hall of Fame ceremonies. However, if he’s going to be inducted, he says hasn’t heard about it yet. “I’ll be present at the Hall of Fame, just watching,” he says.
If he ever got the call: “It’d be quite an honour … to be in there with the legends of wrestling and the entertainment business,” Honky Tonk Man says. “But when you start comparing yourself to Harley Race, Dory and Terry Funk and Nick Bockwinkel … I don’t put myself on that same level.”
He also comments on his recent return to television in a program with Santino Marella. “It was great,” says Honky Tonk Man. “I wish he’d lasted longer (as Intercontinental champion). It would have been good to go to Wrestlemania and maybe have a real match with him.”
