Halls of Fame

I have been blessed when it comes to Halls of Fame.

I have been inducted into four Halls of Fame.

It was a real honor to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 1995 when we were still called the WWF.
1995 was a great year for me. I was also inducted into the Michigan High School Coaches Hall of Fame.




In 2005 I was honored by joining the greats of professional wrestling. I was inducted into the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame.

I was inducted into the Michigan Football Coaches Hall of Fame April 1, 2006.



The tenth PWHF induction (2011)

1986 was my first full time year wrestling. I was a like a dinosaur running with the young bulls.

    For Immediate Release
    November 3, 2011

    (Amsterdam, NY)

    Mayor Ann M. Thane is asking for anyone interested in helping with the planting of 2,500 daffodil and tulip bulbs to meet at the parking lot of Kirk Douglas Memorial Park this Saturday morning at 9am. Bulbs will be planted en masse in the small orchard adjacent to the park at the convergence of RT 30 and Guy Park Avenue.

    “I am grateful for the generous donation of bulbs from the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame, and to Tony Vellano for his continued interest in revitalization of our community.” said Mayor Thane. “Since taking office in 2008, the efforts of our volunteers in neighborhood watch and beautification events has been extraordinary. We are all in dept to these wonderful individuals for their hard work and effective collaboration.”

    The city has held several neighborhood association events that have resulted in over nine tons of litter being removed from the streets, graffiti paint-outs, meet & greet events, and this year’s very successful “Spring Fling” downtown. Plans have already begun for next year’s event. Anyone needing additional information or wishing to become involved in neighborhood association activities, the 2012 Spring Fling, or Saturday’s planting may call the Mayor’s office at 841-4311.
