The announcement was made a few weeks ago that Earl would be joining Jeff Jarrett as a member of this year Hall of Fame class for TNA Wrestling. Right now TNA Producer and Smashing Pumpkins front man Billy Corgan will handle the induction of Mr. Hebner. Yes I don't understand the idea behind choosing Billy instead of say Earl's son Brian or his brother Dave to do the induction. Especially when Brian is currently working for the same company as his father in the same capacity as his father.
Currently the induction is set to take place This Saturday Night October 3 during the live event in Hebner's state of Virgina which will likely be a very emotional moment for the legendary ref. I for one want to say that if any referee in modern wrestling deserves this honor it's Earl. Congrats Mr. Hebner on your induction into the TNA Wrestling Hall of Fame Class of 2015.
