WWE held its Hall of Fame ceremony this past Tuesday. During it, they announced the 10 wrestling legends into the legacy wing of the Hall of Fame.
Ethel Johnson was part of the 2021 class, but WWE used the wrong video footage for her during the ceremony. Dave Meltzer noted during today’s Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE aired footage of Sandy Parker during Johnson’s Hall of Fame package.
Y’all need to fix this because if you’re going to use my aunt Ethel in the hall of fame at least reach out to the family! And the video you guys used isn’t her! https://t.co/3R4HvRFnW8
