Backstage news on the 2016 WWE Hall Of Fame

- There is a lot of talk about The Fabulous Freebirds being inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame in Dallas. I think this is the year to do it and Michael Hayes is with the company and The Freebirds are well-known in the Dallas area because of their feud with The Von Erichs. Kevin Von Erich, who is the guest on this week's "WOOOOO Nation" podcast, should be there to induct him.

Ray Stevens was on the list for the 2015 Hall Of Fame but plans changed because they don't like to have more than one name that passed away. Vince McMahon does not like to remind people that many wrestlers passed away at a young age. Stevens passed away in 1996 at the age of 60.

- The Monday Night Raw average viewer is 40 years old. The Smackdown viewership is quite older. 47 percent of people 18-34 that watch Raw also watch Smackdown. 78 percent of people that are over 50 are more likely to watch both shows.
