The WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony is as much a part of WrestleMania as the show itself. As the “Road to WrestleMania” begins, we know it’s only a matter of time before this year’s class of inductees are announced week after week.
When it comes to “fun WWE tips for making predictions,” guessing who will be inducted that year is right up there with guessing the surprise Royal Rumble entrants.
For this list, we’ve broken down the inductions into five categories: Headliner (essentially the last inductee of the night), Mid-Map Legend, Female Wrestler, Team or Faction, and Celebrity.
Of course, this format is not strictly followed, but that’s what we’ll do.
There is no “first ballot” inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame, as there is no “voting” per se. Whether or not Vince McMahon chooses each inductee himself or a committee is involved, it’s unlikely there are any real “votes” involved.
Other things we considered are where WrestleMania is taking place this year (Dallas, Texas), which is still on good terms with WWE, which will attract the most viewers and, you know, who deserves to be watched. to be there.
We have also taken into account that the “forbidden door” has been “opened”, which means that it is not out of the question that someone signed with a rival company can be inducted.
Keep in mind that this shouldn’t be taken too seriously.
So here are the five names we think will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2022.
#5 WWE Hall of Fame “Celebrity Wing”: Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
When professional boxing icon Floyd Wayweather, Jr. was part of WrestleMania XXIV, he was already considered one of the greatest professional fighters of all time.
His match at this event with the Big Show helped him attract 1 million pay-per-view buys, as well as a ton of mainstream media coverage for the company.
Mayweather also appeared on Raw the following year, hosting the episode and helping MVP and Mark Henry defeat then-Team Champions Big Show and Chris Jericho.
While Mayweather’s problematic past personal life could be a problem, the fact remains that the boxing legend is still a draw.
Floyd played a big role in a very successful WrestleMania and, let’s face it, he’ll probably end up in the Hall of Fame.
