So is this the full class now?

 

I would say no until the go-home Raw.

Had heard that rumored but hadn't seen confirmation anywhere yet. I'm interested to hear that speech, for sure.

 

Overall, I'm really pleased with this year's class.

There is still a "celebrity wing" inductee missing.

Aside from Beth's inclusion, this is a pretty solid and well deserving class.

Eric Bischoff is now announced to induct DDP.  This makes perfect sense for wrestling and non wrestling reasons  :D

 

So we now have Eric Bischoff and Jim Cornette as presenters on the same show with Paul Heyman probably in the crowd.  If someone can figure out how to use Vince Russo then hell will literally be one big ice cube

You don't say. This is pretty surreal. I'd rather have Nash or Austin introduce DDP though.

Since bringing back the HOF as a concept, they didn't have one in 2005, and from 2007-2009.

I'd like to know if they are going to continue with the Legacy Inductees like they did last year.

I think I read that they will have another batch of Legacy Inductees this year.

I seriously thought Haystacks Calhoun was already in. Pretty good group there.

I thought they should've inducted Jerry alongside Eddie.

Can't believe there were two workers named Haystacks. What are the odds ?

The same as there being two Steve(n) Regals? Obviously one was the first (in this case Haystacks Calhoun) and the other (or rather promoters) copied the name. According to Wikipeda Giant Haystacks was at one point even called Haystacks Calhoun.
