    Honky Tonk Man Rejects Hall Of Fame

    Heres the first reject for the HOF this year

    Former Intercontinental Champion The Honky Tonk Man (Wayne Ferris) posted the following his website.

    WWE legend "The Honky Tonk Man" has officially declined WWE's offer for the 2010 Hall of Fame & Wrestlemania XXVI. Below is the full story and a blog from the HTM.

    "HTM declined the WWE offer to be inducted into the HOF class of 2010. There were multiple reasons why HTM decided against this induction. Negotiations started Friday Jan. 22 and carried over till Wed. Jan. 27 at which time HTM informed WWE that he would not be interested in this years induction into their HOF.

    One of the main reasons was a conflict in the schedule. HTM is booked for the Wizard World Comic Con in Toronto for the same date WWE wanted. HTM felt he should stand by his Wizard booking since they had put out publicity on his appearance to be there. Also the Wizard booking has been on his books since early December. WWE had more than enough time to get their date locked in with HTM.

    Wizard has HTM booked for 7 events this year and WWE had only 1 event for HTM. HTM would have suffered a serious negative cash flow by taking the WWE booking since they want a "no compete" clause over several months after the HOF. HTM would have been handcuffed with no way to provide income for his family during the "no compete' months. The dollar figure from WWE for the one event was less than HTM could make in one weekend at Wizard World. Therefore HTM decided 7 dates with Wizard would mean 10 times the money WWE was offering and Wizard does not have a "no compete" clause.

    He is the only guy that would pass up a day that will seal his name as a great.....to be at a Comic Con.

    I've done this a lot lately, but.....



    At least he is looking out for financial struggles.

    I'm sure his negotiations with TNA are part of it too.

    That's why they brought up the fact he was upset about the no compete clause. The guy does make a living on whatever small Indy promotion he can, and now TNA.

    Which is funny because they can be considered on in the same now
    Anyways, hasn't HTM always had a stick up his ass when it came to do anything for the E'?

    Well at least its only a refusal for this year, hopefully he'll be offered again once his schedule allows it.

    I wasn't aware McMahon scheduled the HOF around other people. Rejecting it is big, and for someone like the Honky Tonky Man may be his only chance.

    I doubt it, i'm guessing he'll be offered it again and he'll probably accept unless he does indeed go to TNA.

    Most likely TNA related.

    I would have thought the publicity of being at the HoF and in turn Mania would increase the price he gets for his indy shows?

    As has also been said.........if he turns it down, I don't think he'd be asked again.

    Being offered something by Vince McMahon is like being offered a shot at a hot woman.

    I don't think you get a second chance....

    Re: Honky Tonk Man Rejects Hall Of Fame

    So they're letting random irrelevant old men in the Hall of Fame these days?

    If he wants to help in the demise of TNA, then sure, go ahead. But don't expect to be considered in any legend angles in WWE once TNA goes under for good.

    Re: Honky Tonk Man Rejects Hall Of Fame

    It seemed as if Honky made the right choice. The WWE HOF doesn't have enough legitimacy to give up so much money and possibly affect your family's life for months. HTM is probably one of the few that could turn the HOF, but will be asked again. Besides being one of the most over heels during a hot period, Honky was also the longest reigning IC champion. WWE's booking of the IC title in the past twenty years has made Honky a much needed entry in the HOF.

    I think Vince would understand the fact that he has to work.

    As a Cincinnati Reds fan, I would say anybody. The Hits King Pete Rose is the man.

    Re: Honky Tonk Man Rejects Hall Of Fame

    Amusing, TNA would probably want him regardless.If he went to them straight after the Hall Of Fame TNA would see him as a major acquisition and they'd do a better job of hyping his induction than WWE would.
