Leading up to the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony, there were reportedly times when Bob Backlund told officials he was going to back out of the ceremony just days before the event.

Apparently Backlund felt like he was going to be overshadowed by the other members of this year’s class.

One of the things that WWE did to smooth things over was off to include a small segment of Backlund’s career and Hall of Fame speech on the televised special.
