As seen in many recent years, WWE generally likes inducting a local legend
from the WrestleMania host area each year into the WWE Hall Of Fame. This year,
one of the leading candidates for the WWE Hall Of Fame in terms of local
legends, since WrestleMania 31 in Santa Clara, California, is “The Crippler” Ray
Stevens, considered by many to be the best in-ring worker of his generation.
Another choice for a potential local legend induction is former pro wrestler
and football player Leo Nomellini, however because WWE owns no video footage on
him, his chances are said to be less than great.
As noted last week, the leading candidates in terms of “main event”
inductions for 2015 are Sting and “Macho Man” Randy Savage, although Vince
McMahon said during the live “Steve Austin Show” podcast on Monday that Savage
may not be going in this coming year.
