April 8, 2021
WWE inducts a number of individuals into their Corridor of Fame yearly and that features some into the Legacy Wing. These stars normally embrace names from the previous that didn’t see time in WWE.
It was famous on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE’s footage of Ethel Johnson was incorrect. Johnson was one of many first African American girls’s professional wrestler within the 50’s and 60’s and he or she received the NWA World Ladies’s Tag Workforce Titles with June Byers. Sadly, WWE used the unsuitable footage.
The footage that WWE used of Ethel Johnson in the course of the Corridor of Fame was probably not her. They used footage of Sandy Parker as a substitute. It’s unknown why WWE used Parker as a substitute of Johnson, however this botch was a giant one to make.
Parker was energetic within the 60’s by way of the 80’s and he or she held a number of titles in america and Japan. This was clearly not a mistake that they made on objective, however WWE made it whereas displaying footage from that period.
Maybe one thing has mislabeled, however many followers who knew the distinction noticed this and referred to as them out for the error.
