Its well deserved. 

Hope the rumor about DDP being one of this year's entrants is true.

Besides DDP, former WWE Women's Champ Beth Phoenix is expected to be inducted. I've also heard reports of Rick Rude, Mike Rotunda (aka Irwin R. Shyster) and The Natural Disasters - John Tenta (Earthquake) and Fred Ottman (Typhoon).

Beth Phoenix going in makes no sense when there are several other women who belong in first.

Throw in The Natural Disasters as well... so many better teams ahead of them that are more worthy. Apparently, there are internal issues (politics) preventing those picks.

Is Bill "Ax" Eadie still part of the class-action suit against WWE?

Probably.

I have no problem with the Natural Disasters going in, but John Tenta should eventually go in solo, as well. He wasn't just Earthquake. He was also Golga, the gold masked member of The Oddities. (The less said about his time as Avalanche and The Shark, the better) His feud with Jake The Snake Roberts was one of my favorites.

Its too soon for Beth Phoenix to go in, when Molly Holly, Ivory , Bull Nakano, Miss Elizabeth, Victoria, Luna Vachon, Chyna, Leilani Kai, and Mike McGuirk (the first female announcer) aren't in yet. All of whom had much more significant contributions than her. 

Its a no-brainer that Edge will induct her, if another woman doesn't.

Both members of Demolition are part of the suit.

And Eadie successfully sued Vince 20 years ago over Demolition rights.

The Masked Superstar is still the greatest wrestler of all-time!

I have no issues with the Natural Disasters but....

The Midnight Express, Hart Foundation, Bulldogs, New Age Outlaws, The Nasty Boyz, the Steiners... ALL better picks (to me) for the tag team "wing" of the HoF.

And yes, I don't get Beth Phoenix getting in before the ladies mentioned above.

I'm still baffled that Cyndi Lauper hasn't been inducted. Wonder if she was asked and turned them down?

And I'm probably in the minority, but Barry Darsow should be inducted twice: as Demolition Smash....and as Repo Man.
