It was first reported Monday by Bleacher Reporter that Charles Wright, better known to WWE fans as The Godfather, would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. The legendary grappler spoke to Bleacher Report about his career in WWE.
“It was crazy,” Wright said of The Godfather character. “Vince (McMahon) told me ‘Charles, you ought to be paying me.’ And you know what? He was right. That was the best thing to ever happen to me.”
It is revealed elsewhere in the article that he will be inducted into the Hall by JBL and 2012 inductee Ron Simmons. WWE has also confirmed Simmons and JBL as his inductors.
