About ten different stories in my Facebook feed saying tonight will be the night that it's finally announced that Randy Savage will finally get the recognition he deserves. I'm still interested in all the backroom deals that happened between WWE and the Poffo family to make this finally happen.

Pretty much the only right choice. They've never done a posthumous headliner before, so I wonder if he'll close the show. Lanny's speech, I assume that's who will be speaking in his place, is something I'm looking forward to.

I heard Hogan would induct him, so I think he will give the beginning speech. It would be fucked up to have Hogan be the one to give the speech considering how their friendship ended.

They should have some production intern sit down and watch the hundreds of hours of Macho Man interviews from over the years and splice together an acceptance speech, similar to what they do on Fallon with Brian Williams.

Not sure how I feel about Hogan doing it. I would prefer Steamboat, but beggars can't choose. Punk would've been sublime.

Long, long overdue.

Steamboat? He's like the anti public speaker.

For deceased wrestlers, they always have a family member give the actual speech. Hogan, assuming he's the guy, would merely induct him.

According to Lanny (and, of course, Hogan), Hogan and Savage made peace, and since Lanny believes Hogan's side of things, there's no issue with Hogan inducting Savage since he appears to have the family's blessing.

You're right. Kane inducted Paul Bearer last year but his sons spoke for him.

FWIW, the WWE network is not so subtlety playing a lot of Savage bits this afternoon.

Will be interesting to see if they induct him with or without Miss Elizabeth.

THIS. Absolutely agreed.

I could listen to Randy Savage promos for hours on end, they can be very funny, inane, and intense at the same time.

I think I still have Savage's rap CD floating around somewhere. Yeah, I bought it.
