WWE Hall of Fame Inductee - Class of 2007

On 5th May, 2002, Curt Hennig was released from the WWE - a move thought to have been sparked off by a much-publicised incident on a plane journey back from the United Kingdom.  Whatever the cause, it seemed likely that Mr. Perfect would not be seen again in the WWE.  Less than a year later, Curt Hennig was found dead in his Brandon, Florida hotel room where he was preparing to fight Ian "The Iron Brit" Harrison for the Jimmy Hart-promotion, World Wrestling All-Stars.  Fans across the world mourned the death of wrestling's Mr. Perfect, destined never to see those Grade A mat mechanics again.

However, in February 2007, the WWE announced that at a pre-Wrestle Mania 23 ceremony Curt Hennig would be inducted into its Hall of Fame.  The announcement revived memories of great encounters Curt Hennig had against the likes of Nick Bockwinkel and Bret Hart - who himself became a WWE Hall of Famer the previous year.  It also had fans reliving some of the most famous and favourite moments in WWE history - the Perfect vignettes.  Almost nineteen years after the first one aired, fans were still asking each other if they remembered Mr. Perfect sinking a 40-foot putt, recording the perfect game in ten-pin bowling, getting four consecutive ringers in horseshoes, hitting a basket from half-court, sinking all nine balls on a pool table or, many fans' favourite, in 1993 throwing the perfect pass to himself in front of an amazed Minnesota Vikings' tight end, Steve Jordan.

The Class of 2007 contained some distinguished names from the world of professional wrestling.  The eight inductees that year were:
  • Nick Bockwinkel
  • Ed Farhat - The Sheik
  • Mr. Fuji
  • Curt Hennig - Mr. Perfect
  • Jerry "The King" Lawler
  • Dusty Rhodes
  • Jim Ross
  • The Wild Samoans
Despite the exalted company, Curt Hennig's name amongst the list of wrestling legends seemed to fit perfectly.   On an emotional day at Fox Theater, Detroit, Michigan, on Saturday, 31st March, 2007, Curt Hennig's good friend, Wade Boggs, helped induct The Perfect One.  Curt's family - his wife, Leonice, four children, Joe, Hank, Kate and Amy, and parents, Larry "The Axe" and Irene - were present to accept the honour on Curt's behalf.

George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame Inductee - Class of 2007


Wrestling legend Larry "The Axe" Hennig was enshrined in the George Lagos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame in the Class of 2006 and it wasn't long until his son, Curt, was recognised as another Hennig Hall of Famer by the very same institution.

Curt Hennig was included in the Class of 2007, just one year after his father took his place amongst the greats of professional wrestling at the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Hall of Fame.  The five inductees that year were:
  • Red Bastien
  • The Great Gama
  • Curt Hennig - Mr. Perfect
  • Dale Lewis
  • Steve "Dr. Death" Williams
Ted DiBiase - known as the Million Dollar Man during a popular run that spanned many years in the WWE - was the recipient of the 2007 Frank Gotch Award.

Collecting the plaque that recognises Curt Hennig's induction was his Hall of Famer father, Larry "The Axe", and his wife, Leonice.

A large crowd were present to watch proceedings on Saturday, 14th July, 2007 at the newly opened George Tragos/Lou Thesz Hall of Fame in Waterloo, Iowa USA.  The induction ceremony was just one of many events which occurred over that weekend to celebrate the ninth annual inductions.  These included a Celebrity Golf Tournament the day before at Gates Park Golf Course and a banquet held on Saturday night.  A wrestling show organised by Harley Race and WLW - which card included Class of 2007 member Steve "Dr Death" Williams" and one of Curt's sons, Joe Hennig - announced that proceeds from the event would be donated to the Dan Gable International Wrestling Institute and Museum.  Many Hall of Famers and Gotch Award winners made an appearance during the course of the successful weekend.
