Posted March 21st, 2016 by jshannon

The latest inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame, Class of 2016, is Stan “The Lariat” Hansen. A true Texas Legend, Stan (born John Stanley Hansen II) was trained by Dory Funk Sr., Dory Funk Jr. and Terry Funk. He wrestled from 1973 until 2001. He is the man credited with breaking Bruno Sammartino’s neck, in 1976. Stan won the AWA World Title, from Rick Martel, on December 29, 1985. He held it for six months, before leaving the AWA. He was never beaten for that title. Hansen absolutely ruled Japan, where he held almost every possible title. He was inducted into the Texas Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2011. The “Bad Man from Borger, Texas” is a well-deserved addition to the WWE Hall of Fame. Congratulations.
