I think Vader is rumored, and same with the Freebirds, too. Looking like this could be a very WCW* heavy year. Since Sting/HHH ended the war once and for all last year, I would hope that all pettiness has been swept aside and we can honor all of them without any nonsense.
* I know the Freebirds are more World Class but they still had a decently long stint in WCW.
Could've been, but Sable was getting in at soon as long as WWE was going to continue to put one woman in a year. It's not a great back history of women's stars, and she was over more than most.
I'd assume it's going to be [whoever] instead of Chyna every year, until WWE's not worried about Chyna not being a trainwreck over that weekend and media writing stories about what's she's been up to after her WWE career.
Originally posted by ekedolphinIt's a bit sad that Sting will have had only 3, 4 matches in his WWE career. I wish he'd joined five years earlier, or even during the inVasion.
Five years earlier? Sure. During the invasion when everyone from WCW that was brought in got buried? Thank goodness that didn't happen. I mean imagine Sting feuding with HHH during the early to late 2000's back when HHH was burying almost everyone on Raw, that wouldn't have been fun.

So pretty much exactly what we got except Sting could still go.
Incidentally, this makes Sting the first person to be inducted into both TNA & WWE's Halls of Fame. I suspect he won't be the last, as a case could be made for every single other member of TNA's Hall of Fame. I'd be surprised if The Dudley Boys don't make it in a few years after retirement and I suspect Kurt Angle will eventually make it in if he stays clean and retires without having to be paralyzed/killed in the ring.
Jeff Jarrett has about as much chance of going in as he does of winning last night's Powerball, but that isn't due to being undeserving. And WWE has never inducted a referee, but if they were going to do so, I think Earl Hebner would have to be at the top of the list. I doubt the reason for his firing him would be enough to get him disqualified.

You would need "Good" Dave Hebner involved in some sort of switcheroo shenanigans for "Evil" Earl Hebner to get in.
(for the record, the official WWF kayfabe story was that Earl was the bad twin. THere was no "plastic surgery", that was only included in Hogan's post-match rant)
