WWE Hall of Fame Inductee Wendi Richter

Lethalwow is very excited to report that former WWE Women’s Champion Wendi Richter will be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame at this year’s ceremony.

Wendi Richter—The announcement was made on this week’s Raw, as a video package was shown. Wendi Richter will become the 4th woman ever to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which is a huge accomplishment. Wendi’s first Women’s title win came on July 23, 1984, where she defeated The Fabulous Moolah at the historic “The Brawl to End It All” that aired on MTV. The ladies drew huge ratings, becoming the most-watched program in the history of MTV. This was a huge part of the “Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Connection.” Wendi would later lose the title to Leilani Kai on February 18, 1985, and later regain it at the very first WrestleMania on March 31, 1985 in New York City. Her induction is even more historic due to the fact that she left the WWE on bad terms. On November 25, 1985, she lost the Women’s title to The Spider Lady (Fabulous Moolah), which is considered the “The Original Screwjob,” in which Vince McMahon and Wendi were in contractual dispute.
