2016 Hall Of Fame Class Predictions

This is a list of potential candidates for the 2016 H.O.F Class.

I always enjoy The Hall Of Fame ceremony. It’s a great mixture of real emotion and stories. Some of which are real and some of which aren’t. It’s absolutely not too early to began contemplating the who, what and why of 2016’s induction class for Dallas, Texas’ turn at hosting Wrestlemania. With 100,000 seats to fill at Wrestlemania at Texas Stadium, the hall of fame ceremony will likely be quite star-studded too with more fans than usual in town.

My Choices Are The Following.

Headliner. The Undertaker

Vince Mcmahon’s greatest character creation The Undertaker will be 51 by the time WrestleMania 32 comes around. Should he have a farewell match next year, against Sting or otherwise, adding a Hall of Fame induction to the weekend would be mighty fitting.

Not only would he get the nod in his home state, but WWE would get to have him as a headliner of its Hall of Fame class.

WrestleMania 32 would become a celebration of the legend’s accomplishments and a means to bid him a memorable farewell.the whole Wrestlemania weekend being built around the “retirement” of The Undertaker. Making it possibly with that announcement alone a sellout event. Vince Mcmahons greatest character creation..

Demolition.

Demolition, Axe and Smash, were a successful team that had a great sense of mystery, power and aggression to them.

They played a pivotal part in the tag team division within 1980’s and early 1990’s and rightfully deserve their place within the Hall of Fame along with former manager Mr. Fuji.

Sable

Sable helped shape the role of the valet, adding sex appeal to the product just as WWE moved into its most risque era.

The former women’s champ remains one of the company’s most memorable women, whether she was standing in Marc Mero’s corner or playing Vince McMahon’s mistress.

Christian

Christian is a good choice. WWE can honor him rather than let him quietly fade into retirement, as seems to be the case currently. Edge is the clear choice as the man to induct him.

Captain Charisma would make a fun addition to the 2016 class, serving as an upper midcarder of sorts as Undertaker headlines the group.

Sting

I think that if both The Undertaker and Sting’s are inducted at the same time then the inductions would feel more impactful assuming that they will be wrestling at WM32.

Stan Hansen

Stan needs to be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame in Hansen’s home state of Texas.Most of Hansen’s renown came as a gaijin terror in All Japan and New Japan at the tail end of the 20th century.

However this style and gimmick as the rabble-rousing Texan has been imitated and duplicated literally worldwide, but not a single wrestler has ever exceeded his legacy.

The Fabulous Freebirds

This would be an induction that has been put off for too long. The stable/team section of the Hall of Fame is the most lacking, but WWE has made an effort to change that in the last few years. The Four Horsemen and the Road Warriors got in in 2012 and 2011 respectively.

Bruiser Brody

Brody is perhaps the biggest name in pro wrestling in the 1980s to NOT work for Vince McMahon. However, he is a Dallas/World Class/Japan/AWA legend, and for that reason alone absolutely should be a Hall of Fame inductee

William Regal

William Regal is more-than-deserving of induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.

From Regal’s stellar in-ring credits (and his fantastic character work) to his story of redemption and his legacy of keeping the British wrestling tradition alive in the modern era, putting him in sooner rather than later makes sense

The British Bulldog

Who could forget The Bulldog’s win in the Intercontinental championship to a sell out crowd at Wembley stadium? Total epicness. The Bulldog went on to winning further titles including European, Tag Team and Hardcore championship and went on to creating a reputation for himself.

He was part of the infamous Hart Foundation stable and played a pivotal part in being one of WWE’s most hated heel stable at the time.

Celebrity Wing Muhammad Ali

Each year, WWE recognises not only those that have made an impact within the wrestling circuit but also honour celebrities who have used their cult status to make positive contributions within WWE. Ali’s contributions to WWE are plenty, and WWE would love to be associated with someone as renowned as the former heavyweight champ.

He would be a big get for the Hall of Fame ceremony preceding the massive WrestleMania.The biggest question is whether Ali would accept. The sharp-tongued boxer is certainly a fan of pro wrestling. He previously named Gorgeous George as an inspiration for his flamboyant style.

Other potentials. The Dudleys. X-Pac.
