Upon the recent live announcement that revealed the site and date of the Double Main Event Weekend, anchored by WrestleRama 25, Michigan Wrestling Organization CEO Jason “the Basher” Clouse made another big announcement concerning the incoming class of new Hall of Famers this year.
It’s been confirmed that former MWO Great Lakes and Tag Team champion Big Bubba Blackwell will be a part of the MWO Hall of Fame Class of 2019. Bubba’s induction is one year removed from his championship tag team partner Blackwell’s own induction into the Hall of Fame in 2018.
Big Bubba was one of the most popular superstars in the organization during his tenure. Before seeing solo success, Big Bubba teamed with Cooter to win the MWO Tag Team championship. After the Blackwells team split into a personal rivalry, Bubba sought singles success and eventually captured the Great Lakes title in 2009 with a big victory over Jaysen Platinum. Bubba’s reign included a title defense at WrestleRama 16 in 2010 against Mourgothe. Following a serious leg injury, Blackwell was forced to retire from the ring wars, but not before making a big impact on the MWO during the legendary “Terri’s Lounge Era.”
