We noted prior that Diamond Dallas Page and ‘Ravishing’ Rick Rude were being inducted into the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame. There has been a ton of speculation about who will be joining them in this years class. As always, the WWE Hall of Fame is a heavily debated topic with many deserving names.
On the latest Wrestling Observer Live (Subscribe here), Bryan Alvarez suggests several names that have been heavily discussed for the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame class. Note: These are not confirmed names, but just ones that are being heavily rumored.
The names were:
- William Regal
- The Natural Disasters (Earthquake and Typhoon)
- Irwin R. Schyster aka I.R.S
Regal and Christian seem like obvious choices. Both had incredible careers with the WWE. Both are also featured on WWE programming to this day (Regal as the General Manager of NXT and Christian on his WWE Network show alongside Edge).
I.R.S (Mike Rotunda) is a 5 time WWE Tag Team Champion. He is also the father to Bray Wyatt and Bo Dallas.
The Natural Disasters are probably the most surprising name on the list of names being discussed. The tag team were together for only a few years in the 90’s and are one time WWE tag team champions. Earthquake passed away in 2006.
If all these turn out to be true, it is a pretty solid class.
Let us know what you think in the comment section below. Who do you think deserves to be in this years class?
