- We noted before that WWE recently resolved their issues with Roddy Piper because they want him to be a part of WrestleMania XXX weekend. WWE wants Piper and other WrestleMania I stars, mainly the main event participants, to headline the Hall of Fame ceremony that weekend.

The idea being pitched within WWE would see Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Mr. T and Paul Orndorff to be inducted, making it the first time ever that a match itself is inducted into the Hall of Fame. It’s possible that Jimmy Snuka and Bob Orton, who also participated in the WrestleMania I main event, could be inducted as well. Inducting a match into the Hall of Fame opens the door for similar inductions in the future.

Mr. T has reportedly turned down WWE in the past but word now is that officials recently reached out to him and are negotiating. If this plan goes through, obviously it would make Hogan, Piper, Orndorff, Orton and Snuka two-time Hall of Famers like Ric Flair.

  • Loose Cannon

    Okay so how many of Cena’s title matches are gonna be inducted from the last ten years? On top of that the undertaker which is deserving, is this how Triple H is getting in to because he’s picking them? It’s about time you look into the history books & you should know who’s more deserving of that spot!

  • Jason Lentini

    Does that mean Liberace will get into the HOF also since he was a guest ring announcer or time keeper or something ?

  • JAckh45

    Inducting a match… this seems pretty stupid. I thought HHH was trying to get the HOF more legit
