Bam Bam needs to go in but if we’re talking super-heavyweights then Vader is the most deserving of those not yet inducted, Bigelow had a great career though, I only put him slightly behind Vader as Vader had more of a headlining career.

I would love to see a ECW alumni go in like Taz, RVD, Sabu, Sandman or Raven.

It's surprising nobody best known for ECW has yet gone in. Taz has said many times on his show that RVD should be the first of the bunch and I agree.

I like that Hillbilly Jim is going in. His comical persona made for some light hearted entertainment.

Some good skits in the mid 90s with Sunny when she was always flirting with one of his Goodwins.

I, um...what?

Kid Rock in the WWE HoF? What kind of bizarro world are we living in?

Anyone willing to put up a bet that next year's celebrity inductee will be either Fred Durst/Limp Bizkit or Flo-Rida?

This is blatantly part of Kid Rocks conditions to perform American Bad Ass live at Mania for Takers entrance for his match with John Cena - either that or it was WWE's way of linking Taker and Kid together for the weekend so he can perform

American Badass will be back bay bay

Batista has been talking about turning down a Hall of Fame place ...

Quote  


Speaking to wrestling clothing store grplgme, he discussed the unlikelihood of returning for this year's Show of Shows in New Orleans.

“That probably won’t happen, you know, that probably won’t happen," he said.

“But I would love to go back. I’ve been very vocal about that, you know, never say never, and this is why I haven’t accepted a nomination into the WWE Hall of Fame because I just don’t feel like my career is over"

“I still feel like I have plenty to offer, but now it’s just a scheduling issue and also a creative issue. So, never say never - I’d love to go back.”

So that is surely a sign he sees him self returning in the not too distant future.


I wouldnt mind him returning if im honest but i dont think he should be pushed straight into the main event picture - a one off feud - sort of like how undertaker appear these days - would be better in my opinion

I have no issue with Kid Rock being the celebrity hall of famer this year he's done quite a bit of work with WWE over the years, he's performed at wrestlemania before I believe and of course let's not forget American Bad Ass back in 2000. 

This is looking to be a pretty good Hall of fame for 2018 I'm looking forward to a few of the speeches, the Dudleyz and Goldbergs in particular.

Quote WWE is set to Mark Henry as the latest and last inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame, Class of 2018 tomorrow afternoon. The company will be releasing a WrestleMania magazine ahead of the PPV and it has leaked online. A section of it is devoted to the Hall of Fame and aside from the names already announced, Mark Henry is also there.

-- Bam Bam Bigelow remains the only former wrestler from a list that was released several weeks/months ago that wasn't announced and as we reported recently, we heard that the reason (not confirmed by WWE) for this was that the company could not come to a financial agreement with the late Bigelow's family.

-- With Henry's addition, the full list will likely read as follows: Bill Goldberg, The Dudley Boyz, Jeff Jarrett, Ivory, Kid Rock, Mark Henry and Hillbilly Jim. It is likely that Hillbilly was the last addition when Bigelow's name was removed.

Mark Henry deserves it, but this year is packed and someone with a two decade career there deserves more than being a bit part announced last.
 
It's a shame about Bam Bam, but his family should be sufficently looked after if he's to go in.
 
Very much looking forward to the ceremony, with no filler act in the line up this time around.

Never been a fan of the celebrity inductions, Kid Rock did a theme song for The Undertaker and performed live at one Wrestlemania and would have earned decent money for doing so. Does this justify him going into the WWE hall of fame I would say no. If a celeb had consistently been a part of the wrestling product in one way or another over the years then I would say fair enough but KR hasn’t.

Mark Henry deserves it, a very long career that took a while to get going but his later years with his hall of pain gimmick saw him achieve great success as a headliner for a short time at least. He doesn’t have the name value to headline a HOF class so this is a good spot for him.

Personally, I would call Ivory & Kid Rock filler. I've no interest in them at all, but I know some others do, so that's cool, I guess.

All in all it's a good class, but I really am disappointed in WWE for not inducting Big Van Vader.
