When WWE was in Memphis they interviewed legendary Memphis announcer Lance Russell, Jerry Jarrett, and Bill Dundee for the upcoming Jerry Lawler DVD. The DVD is scheduled to be released sometime in 2015. WMC-TV in Memphis did a four-part series on Russell and Dave Brown where they looked at old tapes.
Vince McMahon told Steve Austin on his video podcast that Randy Savage would go into the WWE Hall of Fame but did not exactly say when. He and Sting are the most talked about names for the Hall of Fame this coming year. Another name that they could put in is Ray Stevens. WWE has put local legends in the HOF in the past and Stevens would be the most logical choice for the Bay Area. Leo Nomellini would be the second choice but they don’t have any footage of him and there’s no tie to him. They do have plenty of footage of Ray Stevens.
