With the first three inductees into this years Hall of Fame class announced as Mark Henry, Goldberg, and the Dudley Boys will be going into the Hall this year. It seems like a great time to try and predict who will be joining them and filling out the class. Typically the WWE has around 5-6 people gain entrance into the Hall of Fame every year with multiple inductees falling under the legacy award. Due to the impossible nature of predicting who could be inducted under the legacy award I will not be touching that allowing the WWE to surprise us this year like always. However, I will fill out the class with three others choices that deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.
The first induction for me would be Lisa Moretti better known to wrestling fans as Ivory. Last year I said that a woman of the past should get in like Judy Martin or Leilani Kai, but this year I am switching to someone else. Ivory's career extends all the way back to the 1980's as a member of the company GLOW which recently was brought back on Netflix last year. Though Ivory didn't make it into the mainstream until the latter part of her career she absolutely left an impact in the world of wrestling for years to come and deserves her place in the Hall of Fame. I personally would like some other names to go in first, but I do think this person earned his way in and should go in solo & as a member of a tag team. This man is Davey Boy Smith the "British Bulldog" who enters the status of legend just by how many times he moved from WCW to WWE and vice versa during the 1990's. For me the Bulldog needs to go in before the Hart Foundation due to them not likely wanting to make him a two time inductee and I think his achievements as a singles wrestler would also warrant an induction.
For this last inductee I will pull something out of left field and that is someone who had a big part in southern wrestling. Even though at first I was leaning toward someone from the UWF due to the connection with New Orleans, but instead I am going with someone known very well in Georgia and Florida. I think that following suit from last year with Teddy Long wouldn't be a bad idea as Eric Bischoff is a very deserving choice to be inducted. I don't think that I have to go over Eric's achievements in wrestling, but I do have to mention the fact that his career kicked off as an office worker in the AWA before becoming the interviewer for the company. Eric's career in announcing left much to be desired but his career as an authority figure and a direct rival to Vince McMahon is enough to punch his ticket into the WWE Hall of Fame.
