Wrestlemania is getting closer and so is the Hall of Fame for 2019! As we progress closer to the Grandest Stage of Them All, more names for the 2019 Hall Of Fame induction have been released. Here is the current list, notwithstanding any updates in the weeks to come.
D-Generation X was the first announcement for the Hall Of Fame 2019. Unfortunately, not every member will be able to receive the accolade in person, as Chyna passed away a couple of years ago.
With the induction of D-Generation X, a lot of fans are celebrating the fact that Chyna is finally going to be inducted in the Hall Of Fame. That being said, there is still a massive outcry to give Chyna an individual induction.
The Honky Tonk Man
The Honky Tonk Man was well before my time watching wrestling, so I did have to do some research and watch some extensive matches on the WWE network. So, for those of you who are not familiar with The Honky Tonk Man, here is what you need to know.
Working for the World Wrestling Federation and a slew of independent wrestling promotions – and with his Elvis resembling looks – The Honky Tonk Man is hard to forget. Not only does he have multiple championships under his belt from promotions around the world, he also held the WWF Intercontinental Championship for a record-breaking 64 weeks!
Torrie Wilson is the female inductee this year. One of the most popular and most downloaded superstars in history, Torrie was one of the wrestlers on the forefront of women’s wrestling. While she started as a bit of a cover girl, as it happened in those days, she eventually became a serious contender.
Booker T is about to become a two-time Hall of Famer, as the tag team Harlem Heat is being inducted into the Hall Of Fame this year.
One of the interesting things about Harlem Heat is that they weren’t one-trick ponies. They covered everything from strength, agility, and even high-flying ability in the ring. This makes them one of the outstanding tag teams and more than deserving to be inducted this year.
Sue Aitchison (Warrior Award)
The Warrior Award this year will go to a WWE employee with a track record of 33 years – Sue Aitchison. As the senior manager of talent relations, Sue has supported many of the superstars over the years. She has also played a vital role in the relationship between the WWE and the Make A Wish Foundation. Congratulations Sue!
