The good folks over at PWInsider are reporting that legendary wrestler/promoter Bill Watts will be inducted into the 2009 class of the WWE Hall of Fame. Watts had a storied career as a wrestler but his real claim to fame has to be his time as the owner and promoter of Mid South Wrestling. The Cowboy booked many memorable angles during his stint (and participated in a few as well) running Mid South (several of which are mentioned in Wrestling's Greatest Moments). Congratulations to "Cowboy" Bill Watts on this great accomplishment!
Mike Rickard II is the author of Wrestling's Greatest Moments (published by ECW Press), a look back at the greatest matches, angles, and feuds of the last thirty years. The book is now availble for pre-order through amazon.com
