Former WCW World Heavyweight Champion Ron Simmons is slated to be inducted into this year’s WWE Hall of Fame class in Miami, Florida. It has not been disclosed when the official announcement will be made.

Among his many accomplishments, Simmons held the WWE World Tag Team Championship three times with Bradshaw, the WCW World Tag Team Championship with Butch Reed as Doom and the WCW United States Tag Team Championship with Big Josh. However, his greatest achievement occurred on August 2, 1992, when Simmons became the first officially recognized African-American singles World Champion, defeating Big Van Vader for the WCW World Championship.

Other elite Superstars scheduled for induction on March 31, 2012 are Edge, The Four Horsemen (Arn Anderson, Ric Flair, Barry Windham, Tully Blanchard and JJ Dillon), Mil Mascaras and Mike Tyson.

    He deserves it.

    I seriously do hope the rumor of them inducting Yokozuna is true. He deserves it. Ron Simmons was the first black World Champion. But on the same token, Yokozuna was the first Samoan World Champion. Both deserve the honor.
