42zg.jpgAccording to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Jim Ross and Jerry “The King” Lawler will be inducted into this year’s WWE Hall of Fame. 

In my opinion they are both more than deserving as they have been the best announcers in this business for a decade now, if not of all time. There’s little doubt that the success of Raw on Monday nights have been greatly helped by their fantastic chemistry, charisma and love for the sport of professional wrestling.

Of course, if you go beyond their WWE announcing duties, Jim Ross was a great commentator for both NWA and WCW whilst Jerry Lawler was a legendary wrestler for decades. I will have much more on this when WWE make it official.


Legendary wrestler and promoter Larry Henning will be inducting his late son Curt (Mr. Perfect) into this year’s HOF, which is a fitting tribute.

The Wild Samoans (Afa and Sika) have agreed to be inducted, which sounds right as WWE inducted the tag team of The Blackjacks last year, so one team a year seems likely. Again, more on this if/when it’s confirmed.

Probably the greatest wrestler that ever lived, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair is expected to be the leading wrestler for next year’s Hall of Fame. My understanding is that the only reason he hasn’t been inducted as of yet is because the company and the wrestler don’t want to be inducted whilst he is still an active part of the roster.
