HAILING FROM THE ISLE OF MALTA (REALLY): WWE Hall of Fame inductee "Baron" Mikel Scicluna, your Dead Wrestler of the Month at the age of 80. Here's some vintage footage of him wrestling at the Philadelphia Spectrum. (No, was not the most exciting. Granted.)

Inducted last night to join Scicluna the Hall were the Million Dollar Man, Ted DiBiase (truly, one of the federation's fun heels -- found my favorite promo); Antonio Inoki; Wendi Richter; Maurice "Mad Dog" Vachon; celebrity inductee Bob Uecker and posthumous inductees Gorgeous George and Hart family patriarch Stu Hart, in whose dungeon were trained scores of legendary wrestlers, ranging from his sons Bret and Owen to son-in-law Davey Boy Smith to Jushin Liger, the Honky Tonk Man, Chris Jericho and the guy we don't talk about anymore.

Learn more about the inductees via this link, and whenever I post something nice and nostalgic about the WWE, for balance I ought to link again to the Waxman Committee investigation.
