Both Bruno Sammartino and Bob Backlund are on the list of considerations for this years Hall of Fame class. Sammartino has turned down offers from WWE in the past for an induction, but word is that Triple H is personally trying to make the induction happy and may even fly to Pittsburgh for a face to face meeting if it will make the deal happen.
Bob Backlund's name has also popped up again due to his history with Madison Square Garden. The report is WWE has reached out to him but no word on if he's accepted.
Word is that there have been discussions within WWE to induct the Kliq (Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Sean Waltman) into the WWE Hall of Fame. The group has members in both DX and the nWo, which have both been discussed as possible inductees.
The latest on this year's class is that it is still very up in the air, and that there are several possibilities for the spots.
