I would almost say either the Hardys or Edge and Christian only because of the whole TLC thingy.  Probably E+C because by HOF the Hardys will be so broken they won't want them to break character.

Dreamer is a no brainer - which is why I believe it won't happen.

Pretty obvious that Sign Guy Dudley is going to induct them by just holding up a sign saying "Induction Speech".

DEFEATED JASON AXE & KEVIN STEEN 7-13-2014

That's an interesting result.  I wonder what became of Jason Axe.

Bravo!  Great line.

In New Orleans, don't they have to induct some Mid-South guys? JYD is already in. I don't know if they'd have any interest in putting over Bill Watts, although at one point him and Vince were close. Maybe a good year to induct One Man Gang.

WWE officially revealed that Lisa "Ivory" Moretti would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2018 this afternoon after an article by ESPN "officially" revealed the induction. The induction had been expected and had been mentioned here previously on PWInsider.com.

Moreti, 56, was one of the original class of women trained by Mando Guerrero to take part in the original incarnation of The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, where he portrayed babyface Tina Ferrari. She later appeared in David McLane's first attempt to reincarnate GLOW, POWW (Powerful Women of Wrestling) as Nina Ferrari.

Moretti was brought into WWF during the Attitude Era, originally as a second to D'Lo Brown and Mark Henry before shifting into a regular wrestling role. She held the WWF Women's championship several times and worked as an announcer and trainer for the company as well. It's a well deserved induction.

Maybe a good year to induct One Man Gang.Bill Watts was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2009.  George Gray(One Man Gang) was a plaintiff in a class action lawsuit against the WWE involving traumatic brain injuries, I believe it was dismissed.  He does reside in Louisiana, which is a plus.
 In addition to JYD & Bill Watts, there are several wrestlers who held the North American Heavyweight Title in the Mid-South and are already inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame:
Dusty Rhodes, Ted DiBiase, Stan Hansen, Ernie Ladd, Paul Orndorff, Jake Roberts, and Jim Duggan.
In addition, Big Bubba Rogers(Big Bossman) was the UWF Heavyweight Champion and was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2016.  Sting, another WWE HoF inductee, competed in Mid-South/UWF, and was a tag team champion with Rick Steiner.  Bob Orton Jr., another WWE Hall of Famer, also had success in Mid-South.
The Samoans, Afa & Sika, were Mid-South Tag Team Champs and are WWE HoFers.The Freebirds, Terry Gordy & Michael Hayes were tag team champs in Mid-South  and are in the WWE HoF as are the Rock 'n' Roll Express.  The  Midnighe Express & manager Jm Cornette, former Mid-South Tag Team champs are extreme long shots.
Danny Hodge, although deserving, will not be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, he'll probably be inducted into the "Legacy Hall of Fame", after he passes away.  Terry Taylor was successful in the Mid South & UWF and he has virtually no chance of being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, ditto Dick Slater.  Butch Reed was a top performer in Mid-South and had more success in the WWF then either Taylor or Slater but also has virtually no hope of being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.  Dick Murdoch is deserving but is another "legacy" candidate.  Steve "Dr. Death" Williams was very successful in the UWF, but was disappointing in the WWF, he could be inducted into the WWE HoF posthumously, but will probably be another "legacy" candidate.

How was WWE able to air GLOW footage on Raw last night as part of that video package?

Rumor: WWE is considering inducting Jeff Jarrett into the WWE Hall of Fame, perhaps as early as this year Pwinsider.com reports.

This would not surprise me.  When WWE puts an estranged worker through rehab on their dime, sometimes said worker will reach out and give a heartfelt thank you.  And sometimes that is all it takes for both sides to get on the same page.  For the most part if anybody is following along with how this has worked over the years, it's 95% of the time the workers' fault that they have no relationship with WWE.  WWE usually doesn't cut ties with a performer - even in Hulk Hogan's case, they still speak to him, they just won't use him on TV or have him in a contractual relationship.  I think this would be great closure for Jarrett and maybe he can build upon it and even work with WWE going forward.

Vince should put him in.  That would be unreal.

The original reason for the Jarrett-WWE feud was overblown. The initial reports were that Jarrett was holding them up for more money, but this turned out to not really be true. Jim Ross or someone fucked up and didn't deal with his contract before it expired, so to protect himself Jarrett demanded that he get all of his PPV bonus money and other royalties owed to him up front before he would agree to drop the I-C title to Chyna on the way out. It wasn't extra money he was looking for, he just didn't trust WWE to pay him what he was owed after he was gone.  This was not an Ultimate Warrior situation. This has been confirmed by several sources.

Jarrett had his buddy Vince Russo waiting for him with a big contract and a huge main event pushed lined up in WCW (for which he was always ill-suited for), so it seemed like a no-brainer to jump. There was really little reason for the level of heat that developed over the years, other than the fact that they went from the depths of the Monday Night Wars to Jarrett trying to run opposition with TNA, so a lot of years went by without any civil contact. At this point, with Jarrett being one of 100 to jump to WCW and all of the others having no heat left, and with TNA never being a real threat to WWE, it all should seem silly now to those involved.

So who puts Double J in? I would say Lawler would be the best choice but he will be hosting.

Maybe Road Dogg
