Although no one was introduced on tonight’s Monday Night RAW, there was confirmation of another inductee into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2011, and it took place following World Wrestling Entertainment‘s flagship telecast on a radio broadcast.

While it isn’t “Bullet” Bob Armstrong, whom many anticipated after a tweet from former WWE superstar “Road Dogg” Jesse James earlier in the day, the news shouldn’t come as a surprise after several reports surfaced last week on a few different possibilities expected to receive the honor.

Abdullah The Butcher confirmed to Arda Ocal tonight that he has been granted an induction into this year’s class during an interview with Right After Wrestling on The Score satellite radio.

He also noted that he would like to be inducted into the hall by either Terry Funk or Mick Foley.

While Foley is all but ruled out as a candidate, since he is under contract with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, Funk had previously been speculated upon as a strong possibility to induct him.

Abdullah mostly made a name for himself competing inside the squared circle overseas and on the independent professional wrestling scene. He remains a draw with his own restaurant in Atlanta and made a stamp on the industry with his hardcore tactics.

The induction ceremony will take place at The Phillips Arena in Atlanta on Saturday, April 2, the day before WrestleMania XXVII.
