BREAKING: #TheGodfather will be inducted into the @WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2016! http://po.st/gzzZg3


Pimpin ain't easy? That ain't PG.

All kidding aside, this guy was a personal favorite back in the day, so I'm glad to see him get in.

Then have whomever's inducting him fall unconscious with their boots on fire.

Wonder who's inducting him?

Okay, so he was around for a long time, and he worked under a lot of different gimmicks, but he was never actually, you know, any good. I kind of hate when guys like this go in just to go in.

The Godfather gimmick is the exact sort of thing Sting always disliked WWE for.

You'd think a company making a conscious effort to make inroads with women & young girls wouldn't want 1 of the inductees into their HOF to be a pimp exhorting people to "get on the hoooooo train" on an otherwise respectable/staid night.

This. The pic of Gadfather and Sting side by side with the WM logo is EXACTLY what Sting was looking forward to.

I was fast-forwarding through that part of the show and thought that they had shown the Papa Shango gimmick alongside the Godfather. I was disappointed when I stopped and went back.

Exactly. Biggest media-attention weekend of the year... let's induct our fun pimp!

I guess any Google search of the Godfather doesn't potentially lead someone to porn, as opposed to say when you search Chyna...

I like the Godfather/Papa Shango fine, but Chyna deserves to be in the HOF before him in my opinion based on impact on the business

I guess IMPLIED illicit sex is different from ACTUAL "illicit" sex

Weird that JBL and Ron Simmons are introducing him since rumors were JBL might go in this year. Has somebody ever been inducted and introduced somebody else in the same year? Or is JBL not going in after all? I wasn't a HUGE fan but JBL would be a much better choice. Actually reached the World Title level and he's a Texan. I thought for sure this Hall of Fame class would be all Texans.

You're right in a more objective HOF, but this is one that apparently has a quota of one person of color a year. As with the women, WWE's not so great history is going to make that challenging some years.

Too bad Piper is dead. He could've gone in blackface on those thin years to fulfill the quota.

I think things would seem much better if they had inducted him as "Charles Wright" on the graphics instead of The Godfather. I mean sure that's who most people are going to remember him as but if they're going to have a video package anyway talking about it you can keep the HoF graphic a bit classier looking for the ol' Stinger ;)

Sorry if my escape clause ruined your day, but I felt without it, it wouldn't be clear enough that I was speculating for the present and somebody who assumed that I didn't think trades would happen would dutifully state the obvious to me.
