How good is this years Hall of Fame class? Rhetorical question, obviously it is excellent. The list of inductees and inductors is for me, the best ever. Let’s take a look though at how it stacks up against some of the other top tier classes.
The Hall of Fame induction ceremony has grown to become the favorite night of the year for many wrestling fans. Each year brings some memorable moments and spectacular inductions. But this year has the potential to top them all.
Kurt Angle makes his return to WWE TV after 11 years. Eric Bischoff returns to induct a man who has literally changed lives, DDP. Beth Phoenix takes her place among the greats. Rick Rude finally gets his long overdue induction. Jim Cornette will be given a live mic to induct the Rock and Roll Express, and Teddy Long will probably make one last tag match.
You have Kurt Angle, Eric Bischoff, and Jim Cornette all returning to WWE in one night. Also, every induction is truly deserved and everyone has the capability to deliver memorable speeches.
2013 and 2014 make solid cases to rival this year, but I can’t recall ever being this excited for the Hall of Fame before. Maybe, 2006 when Bret Hart made his return? But this lineup is stacked, and each induction should be must see TV.
I applaud WWE for truly making the Hall of Fame special and getting it 100% right this year.
