​Confirmed – The APA To Induct The Godfather Into The 2016 WWE Hall Of Fame


According to this article on The Bleacher Report, JBL and Ron Simmons are set to do The Godfather (aka Charles Wright)’s WWE Hall of Fame induction. The site spoke with Simmons, JBL and Wright about the WWE’s announcement; you can check some highlights below:

Wright on his induction: “I can’t wait to see the fans and tell them how much I appreciate them. They don’t forget. I really appreciate everything WWE has done for me and I really appreciate all the fans. It’s such a big honor. I never expected to be in the Hall of Fame. Brother, that’s for eternity man.”

JBL on inducting Wright: “Godfather is legitimately one of toughest guys to have ever been in this business, but more importantly one of the most talented. He took several different characters and got them all over, which is an amazing feat. He is an incredible individual, and I couldn’t be happier for my dear friend. The days of us riding together in a car with Ron Simmons all over the world are the stories that should be told at his induction.”

Simmons on the character of The Godfather: “It’s an edgy and touchy character with so much sexual innuendo. But it was done at the right time and in the right manner. He had to do it in a way that was entertaining and must-see character without getting underneath people’s skins. And it takes a lot of hard work to do that. You must have the charisma, the vocal skills, the physical skills. You couldn’t give that character to just anyone.”
