Inducted by Hogan? Ultimate Maniacs co-headline?

To me, it makes perfect sense in Vince and Hulk's minds for WWE to have Hogan return to the company induct Savage, burying all that pesky "Randy wants Lanny and Angelo to go in with him" stuff by having Randy's real wishes respected by his true brother, brother.

Jake and Damian, Honky Tonk Man, hell, I really don't care. When I realised it was The Warrior last night, I cranked up my stereo, just to hear his theme again on Monday Night Raw. I can't WAIT for his first appearance. Hope he doesn't get blown up running to the ring. Hellwig better be out jogging right now to be in shape to make the big save for the Hulkster at WM. That's a loooooooong entryway. ;-)

Been meaning to toss this out there and kept forgetting ... I wonder if they'll perhaps have Robocop be the celebrity inductee due to (1) his involvement in WCW years ago and (2) the remake of the movie, which might want to spend some marketing money if given a reason.

This is kind of the greatest news ever. I have no idea what Ultimate Warrior in WWE 2014 looks like, but we'll actually get to see it this year.

Does this mean he's the headliner, or is that something they announce later and Warrior just gets the Foley spot? I can't imagine they can get anyone bigger than this.

Hopefully, this leads to a more flattering WWE DVD/BluRay about Warrior, definitely an acknowledgement of his positive contributions.


As far as who inducts him, the only name I can think of is Vince McMahon. His greatest opponents (Savage, Perfect, Rude) are all dead and he has some real legit heat with Hogan. I can't imagine Hogan wanting to legitimize him. Vince, however, always knew how to put Warrior over well and would legitimize him pretty well.

Either that or Sting making a one-shot to induct the guy he broke into the business with would be very cool.

Otherwise, there's still his Ultimate Warriors teammate Shawn Michaels.

This is 100% part of the deal - he wouldn't be coming back if they didn't do a DVD that was the opposite of the other one. Warrior was demanding a public apology from Vince as well at one point, so maybe inducting him is a possibility.

"ALL OF MY GREATEST OPPONENTS ARE DEAD...HULK...HOGAN" seems like the kind of thing he'd actually say in his Hall of Fame speech.

I think people forget what a brief career Warrior had in WWE. He was only there from 1988 to 1992, and then the WrestleMania appearance in 1996.
Destrucity burns bright in a brief time.





(Suppose you could say the same about Foley. Only four years as an regular active WWE wrestler.)

I mean, how he'd fit on a live show with the current WWE presentation, but yeah, he still looks pretty cool.

This is the greatest thing you have ever written.

There are so many great ways to go with this. I see Warrior in a tux, snarl, and wave. Simplicity is destrucity.

He technically headlined only one Wrestlemania main event, but man, did he make that one moment count. It's more than you can say about guys like The Miz.

There are rumors that the Wrestlemania I main event will go into the HOF. It would make sense if they signed Hogan and Piper was already on TV. Nice way to sneak everyone else into the Hall of Fame.

I heard that too, and it seems strange. Didn't Hogan, Piper, Orton, and Orndorff all go in individually the same year? I seem to recall them all on stage together.
