New Challenger For US Title, Top Stars Announced As Royal Rumble Panelists, WWE HOF Update
– Next week’s episode of WWE Main Event will feature The Great Khali facing United States Champion Antonio Cesaro. Khali won a battle royal on last night’s episode to become the new #1 contender.
– As noted before, WWE will hold interactive fan panels at the Royal Rumble Fan Fest in Phoenix, Arizona at the US Airways Center on January 26th and 27th. Here are those panels:
* Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels and Jerry Lawler will discuss the Montreal Screwjob and other topics from 3-6pm on Saturday
* Triple H, Sean Waltman, “Road Dogg” BG James and Billy Gunn will discuss DX from 6:30pm until 9:30pm on Saturday

– As noted earlier, tickets for the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony go on sale tonight via pre-sale after WWE’s RAW live event in Madison Square Garden. WWE will likely be making an announcement to the local crowd tonight but the official announcement with the first inductee on WWE TV likely won’t come until mid-January when tickets go on sale to the general public. The password for tonight’s pre-sale is FAMOUS.
