**Jim Cornette announced at the Ring of Honor event on Saturday night in Milwaukee that the finals of the Tag Title tournament will take place on September 15th at the ‘Death Before Dishonor’ event in Chicago Ridge, Illinois. The quarter-finals will begin on August 3rd at the next set of television tapings in Baltimore.
**On Saturday the Georges Tragos / Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame held their annual induction ceremony. Among those inducted in the class of 2012 were Don Curtis, Kurt Angle (who notified the Hall this past week he would be unable to attend), Road Warrior Hawk, JBL, Dan Severn and Bill Apter. Jim Ross also attended the weekend’s festivities and held a clinic with aspiring talent alongside Gerald Brisco.
Following the induction ceremony Ross posted that Angle’s award was auctioned off for $250 by Gerald Brisco when he didn’t appear at the event. Angle was furious about this and took to Twitter saying that he had sent a video and the award meant a lot to him and bashed Brisco for auctioning off his award. Angle said he had a prior commitment involving his wedding and was unable to attend.
