Maria Menounos to induct Backlund into WWE Hall of Fame

"Extra" host Maria Menounos revealed on Thursday morning on "LIVE with Kelly and Michael" that she will be inducting Bob Backlund into the Class of 2013 WWE Hall of Fame on 4/6 at Madison Square Garden.

Menounos added, "It is an honor to induct my good friend Bob Backlund into the WWE Hall of Fame. Watching him carry the title for a since unmatched five years and then stage such an incredible comeback with a reinvented persona puts him in a class all his own. Add in his incredible work ethic and high moral caliber, and you have everything that defines the word champion. And astonishingly, he can still wrestle with guys a third his age! He's my hero and my friend. I can't wait for the ceremony on April 6."
