While there has not been a single name officially announced for the 2017 #WWE #Hall of Fame class, many big talents have been rumored. In the last two weeks, two names have been thrown around as possible inductees, and it wouldn't be surprising to see Diamond Dallas Page as the headliner. Tonight on "Monday Night Raw," though, this rumored name could trump them all.
PW Insider is reporting that #The Undertaker's appearance tonight on "Raw" could be for any number of reasons, but one that no one is really expecting.
The Undertaker heading into the Hall of Fame?
It is now being rumored that The Undertaker is going to appear on tonight's "Monday Night Raw" from New Orleans, and it is so that the WWE can announce his induction. PW Insider states that it "makes sense" for the wrestling legend to be in that role, but it isn't known if it will happen.
Many believe that the "SmackDown LIVE" superstar is going to announce his intention of entering the "Royal Rumble" match in three weeks. While that is still possible, it would be interesting to see him revealed as the first inductee for the 2017 Hall of Fame class. Making this even more intriguing is that he's still an active member of the roster and not yet retired like most other inductees.
Two other names already rumored for 2017 WWE Hall of Fame
Less than a week ago, Diamond Dallas Page's name leaked out as one superstar who will be inducted in this year's class. The former World Heavyweight Champion and WCW icon is extremely deserving, and it was expected that he would be the headliner for this class. If The Undertaker is not named for the 2017 class, it could easily be seen that DDP will lead the others into the hall.
The other name swirling around for the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame class include the late "Ravishing" Rick Rude. Many have wondered why one of the greatest heels in all of wrestling history wasn't already in the hall, but now is as good a time as any. Rude has already been gone for 18 years after passing away at the age of 40 due to heart failure.
