Bam Bam is dead already, Vader's not. Vader get's priority. It just kills me that he is in the process of dying, and WWE don't want to give him the credit he is due.

Glad The Dudleys are going into the HOF.

Without a doubt one of the greatest tag teams there has ever been in WWE

100% support this decision

Yep good line up so far. Hopefully Vader or Bam Bam next.

Like they said in the video package the Dudleys really were the last of the old school tag-teams, the ones who dress the same, have a geunine connection and great chemistry and have a wide selection of double-team manouvers

Shame he never got to do a retirement speech. His Speech when he inducted Cena into the Hall of Pain was awesome.

I would also quite like to see Christian get in.

Every time i think of Ivory i think of when she was in Right To Censor

She was a good servant to WWE and deserves to be in there with the likes of Lita and Trish

Quote WWE tweeted the following this morning:

BREAKING: As first reported by @espnW, Ivory will be inducted into the #WWEHOF Class of 2018! https://t.co/i3PrrKfoCM

— WWE (@WWE) February 12, 2018

-- WWE.com then posted the following story:

Ivory, a true pioneer in women’s wrestling, will take her place in the WWE Hall of Fame on Friday, April 6, during WrestleMania 34 Week in New Orleans, as a member of the Class of 2018. The news was first reported by espnW.

She broke into the wrestling business as a competitor on Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, the 80s wrestling program that inspired the hit Netflix show “GLOW.” Competing under the name Tina Ferrari, Ivory captured GLOW’s championship before leaving the sports-entertainment industry in the early 1990s.

After nearly a decade away from the squared circle, Ivory returned to the ring in 1999, showing up in WWE in the corner of Mark Henry and D’Lo Brown. She wasted no time getting physical, helping Henry & Brown even the odds against Jeff Jarrett, Owen Hart & Debra. Not long after her arrival, Ivory defeated Debra to capture her first WWE Women’s Championship. Though she was later dethroned by The Fabulous Moolah, Ivory quickly rebounded and recaptured the title from the WWE Hall of Famer.

During the over-the-top Attitude Era of WWE, Ivory eventually aligned herself with the buttoned-up Right to Censor, trading in her tights for a crisp white dress shirt and a full-length skirt. The unusual ring attire did not hinder her from competing at the highest level, as she defeated three fellow WWE Hall of Famers -- Lita, Trish Stratus and Jacqueline -- to capture her third Women’s Title in 2000.

Ivory continued to compete in WWE through 2005 but also began to take on other roles in the company, including serving as a trainer on season 3 of WWE Tough Enough, announcing and hosting several WWE television programs before departing in 2009.

Now, Ivory will have one more title to add to her resume: WWE Hall of Famer.


 
Congratulations to Ivory, who is now the second member of Right To Censor to be inducted.
 
It's well deserved. She could wrestle and was the perfect heel for some of her babyface HOF inductees.
 
So so far one way or another E have covered the headline act, token black guy, token tag team and token female. Surely the next inductee will be the token dead person?

Quote  Jeff Jarrett to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2018

Four-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Jarrett is the latest inductee announced for the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2018.

Jeff Jarrett used to have one question for the WWE Universe during his incredible career: “Ain’t I great?”

While fans responded with boos and jeers then, today, the answer is undoubtedly affirmative. As first reported by NBCSports.com, Jarrett is the latest inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame’s Class of 2018, joining Goldberg, The Dudley Boyz and Ivory. He’ll take his place in sports-entertainment history on Friday, April 6, in New Orleans during WrestleMania 34 Week.

Double J’s road to the WWE Hall of Fame began at birth. The son of Tennessee wrestling promoter Jerry Jarrett, Jeff grew up around the industry, eventually becoming a referee before competing between the ropes at the age of 18. While many promoters’ sons had entered the ring and flamed out, Jarrett was a prodigy inside the squared circle. It was easy to see that he would be a Superstar as he competed against and alongside the likes of WWE Hall of Famers Jerry “The King” Lawler, Nick Bockwinkel and countless others.

However, when Jarrett finally made it to WWE in late 1993, he revealed that he had dreams bigger than the ring: He wanted to use sports-entertainment to make himself the biggest star in country music. Ahead of his arrival, Double J strutted around Music City, USA – Nashville – running down the country music establishment and claiming that the WWE was his road to stardom in the ring and on the stage.

Jarrett found success between the ropes, capturing the Intercontinental Championship three times during a heated rivalry with WWE Hall of Famer Razor Ramon and picking up countless victories with help from The Roadie, much to the dismay of the WWE Universe. Double J eventually backed up his big boasts about his musical prowess, releasing his debut single, “With My Baby Tonight,” with a music video and live performance at In Your House 2 in Nashville. However, after Jarrett’s WWE departure, it was revealed that all wasn’t as it seemed when it came to the hit single – Jarrett was lip-syncing; The Roadie was the voice behind the song.

Nonetheless, Jarrett continued his in-ring career in WCW in 1996, becoming one of the few proud Superstars that can call themselves a member of the legendary Four Horseman. During his year in WCW, Jarrett defeated Dean Malenko to capture the revered United States Championship.

Double J returned to WWE in late 1997 and developed a new, nasty attitude that matched the era in the company. Though he lost his long blonde locks in a match at SummerSlam 1998, it did not deter Jarrett from achieving success, whether it came fairly or by bashing his opponents with an acoustic guitar. During this stint in WWE, Jarrett captured the World Tag Team Titles with Owen Hart and claimed the European and Intercontinental Championships on his own.

Jarrett jumped back to WCW in 1999 and found his greatest success as a competitor, defeating fellow Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page in the final of a six-man tournament to win the vacant WCW World Championship. Jarrett engaged in rivalries with the likes of Ric Flair, Booker T, Sting and others while capturing the WCW World Title three more times before the company was purchased by WWE in 2001.

Jarrett continued to compete around the world and also began to promote shows that gave future WWE Superstars like AJ Styles, Bobby Roode and Eric Young their first major exposure.

Double J’s resume is one of the most impressive in sports-entertainment history. He’s a four-time WCW Champion, three-time United States Champion, six-time Intercontinental Champion, European Champion and World Tag Team Champion. And during WrestleMania 34 Week, Jeff Jarrett will add one more accolade to that list: WWE Hall of Famer.

Ain’t he great?

The rumours had been around for a while and now it has finally been announced, J double in the HOF

Wonder if they'll have Angle induct him LOL

Howdy Folks!   1st post!

So glad to see Jeff Jarrett is on this year's HOF list.  Maybe this is a peace offering from Vince?  Actually I was SHOCKED when I heard this news today.  I remember a scrawny little teenager getting his butt kicked on Memphis TV on his daddy's wrestling show.  And then he left Memphis and "invaded" the WWE with his "git-tuar."

Best wishes to Double J!  and Congrats!
