Last Tuesday at the Hall of Fame ceremony, WWE inducted 10 wrestling legends into the Legacy Wing of the Hall of Fame.
For the 2020 Wing, WWE announced Baron Michele Leone, Brickhouse Brown, “Dr. Death ”Steve Williams, Gary Hart and Ray“ The Crippler ”Stevens. On the flip side, the 2021 wing included Buzz Sawyer, Dick The Bruiser, Ethel Johnson, Paul Boesch and Pez Whatley.
Dave Meltzer noted on today’s Wrestling Observer radio that WWE used the wrong footage for Johnson, who won the NWA Women’s World Tag Team Championship with June Byers. WWE mistakenly used footage of fellow wrestler Sandy Parker during their Hall of Fame video package.
WWE has yet to comment on the error, but Ethel’s family members have taken to social media to let WWE know they need to correct the error.
You all need to fix this, because if you’re using My Aunt Ethel in the Hall of Fame, at least contact the family! And the video you used is not her! https://t.co/3R4HvRFnW8

Great Ethel Johnson a true pioneer my? That’s why you haven’t contacted his family or Chris Bournea !! Please contact us as soon as possible as Ethel’s legacy must be accurate !! His family deserves to be a part of it! I am his niece. Her children are alive, the clip you used wasn’t HER!
