WWE Uses Wrong Footage Of Ethel Johnson At Hall Of Fame – During this week’s WWE Hall of Fame ceremony, Ethel Johnson was inducted into the Legacy Wing for the Class of 2021.
Johnson is the first African American women’s pro wrestler who was active in the ’50s and ’60s and won the NWA World Women’s Tag Team Championship with June Byers.
On the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer stated that the footage that WWE used to show Johnson wrestling was not of Johnson. Meltzer noted that the footage WWE used was of Sandy Parker, which had been mentioned by some users on Twitter earlier this week.
Parker was active from the ’60s – ’80s and held multiple titles in the U.S. and Japan. It is likely that this was an innocent mistake, and WWE was just trying to show footage from that era.
Not many people watching the Hall of Fame live or after the show made note of the mistake. WWE has not made a statement in regards to using footage of Parker instead of Johnson.
