WWE is planning to induct former AWA World champion Larry Zbyszko into the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame, PWInsider.com has learned.
Zbyszko originally trained under Bruno Sammartino and appeared as his protege, before famously turning heel on Sammartino, leading to a feud that culminated with a steel cage bout at Shea Stadium in New York City.
In the years that followed, Zbyszko had runs in the AWA, the NWA and WCW, eventually shifting over to an announcer utilizing his "Living Legend" moniker.
Zbyszko released an autobiography in 2008, has appeared at WWE Wrestlemania AXXESS events in recent years and is still a regular at all the NXT tapings in Orlando, Florida.
