It's a good year to do posthumous inductions, like 3-4 that would take up only 5 minutes of airtime. It could even be a late celebrity that fits like Regis Philbin.
Regis is actually a great choice. I know these celebrity spots usually go to someone who made a couple of Wrestlemania appearances (Trump, Mr. T, Pete Rose, Uecker). I guess Regis only made one, but he did MORE for wrestling with all of the guest interviews on his show than all of those other HOFs combined. Regis sold a lot of tickets for Vince.
Regis would be a good one for the celebrity spot. Since Mr. T's induction, I think the most glaring omission in this category is now Cyndi Lauper.
