Rumor has it DX is expected to be the headliners for the Hall of Fame this year. Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Billy Gunn, Road Dogg and X-Pac. There's also talks of The Kliq being inducted (HBK, HHH, Nash, Hall and Waltman).

IMO, that's a bit overkill. Foley at MSG should be the headliner.

How the hell is X-Pac a hall of famer? Or Road Dogg?

So, does that mean HHH is done wrestling?

No. He's still gonna wrestle. Ric Flair did after he was inducted (albeit, just the one WM24 match).

Triple H is still a part timer who will wrestle come WrestleMania season.

I wonder when Vince McMahon will get inducted into the Hall of Fame. Do they wait until he hands the company over to Triple H or what?

Because they were part of a legendary group. They're going in as members of DX not as individuals.

HHH and HBK will be in twice like Flair. In a stable AND by themselves.


Oh and it's an entertainment show it's not like we're sitting here debating the Baseball HoF or something.

I would argue that all sports are entertainment. Every sport HoF is based off of what a player has accomplished during their career, wrestling is no different. It is of equal significance, it just depends on the amount that you value wrestling, and if you personally believe it to be as entertaining as another sport.

It would be pretty stupid to induct HBK / HHH into the HoF as group members before they are in individually..makes very little sense, Especially from a marketting standpoint IMO.

Nope. They may have already called themselves the kliq backstage but the incident happened at a show at MSG inside of a cage, Infront of a ton of fans to say the least.

Inducting the Kliq sounds stupid. They were just a group of friends backstage. As a group, what did they do for WWE?

If they are talking about inducting groups/stables than the NWO should take precedence over DX and the Kliq. They only re-ignited interest in wrestling (along with Austin) in the mid- to late 90s and helped wrestling achieve its greatest peak.

My guess as to who they induct would be the original members Hall, Hogan and Nash.

You can't induct the NWO without Hogan being there and I really doubt they do that with him in TNA. Sure they had Flair there while he was with TNA, but Hogan's place in TNA is much more important than Flair's was.

DX on the other hand, they have all of those guys pretty much readily available AND they were a WWE/WWF thing, just a matter of whether they want to get over Chyna being in porn or not.

X - Pac accomplished a heck of a lot more than Koko B. Ware did.

The HOF is kind of a joke.

Lol @ Foley having to do spots to stay relevant.

Foley was an OK ring worker without the spots and he was one of the best promo workers ever. He had to do something flashy like spots to make up for not inherently having "the look".

Jake Roberts and Scott Hall are being discussed for the Hall of Fame this year. Both have cleaned themselves up with help of DDP and apparently, it was DDP that reached out to WWE.

If Roberts got inducted, he would be inducted alone. If Scott Hall was inducted, it'd be with The Kliq.

Can't see why Demolition hasn't been inducted yet, other than I think Bill Eadie has some sort of heat with the company for keeping a tag title and selling it.

There is new speculation that WWE has reached some sort of deal to work with Bruno Sammartino. There have been rumors from sources within WWE that deal has been reached and might stipulate that Sammartino won't have any interaction with Vince McMahon at all during the WrestleMania weekend.

At this time this is not confirmed, but it has been previously reported that Triple H was working very hard to get Sammartino to accept WWE's invitation to the Hall of Fame.

Wow! He hates McMahon THAT much! Then again, I hear he hasn't spoken to his own son in many years as well, so he must have some serious personal issues if he values "old school" wrestling values over family relations.

What was that guy's appeal that Vince Sr. felt he should have an 8-year title run? He had a freakin' bearhug as a finisher and I get a negative impression of him as a person, so if any old school fans can give me some assistance, that would be nice.

All I know is Sammartino was a big draw for Vince Sr. apparently at MSG.

Bruno was the main draw in the east for decades. There wouldnt have been a WWE if it wasnt for Bruno. He got those runs because he was money in the bank, and when Monsoon wanted to put the belt on Morales he didnt have the drawing power Bruno did so they put the belt back on him.
