It was confirmed yesterday through multiple wrestling news outlets including Wrestlezone, that Puerto Rican wrestling legend Carlos Colon Sr. will be be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame as part of Wrestlemania 30 week on Saturday April 5 in New Orleans, IL. Colon confirmed the good news himself in an interview with elnuevodia.com, saying it was the "realization of a dream". This particular induction has been rumored for for the past few years.

Colon is the father of former WWE star Carlito and current WWE talent Primo who now performs in the Los Matadores tag team. Colon has had sporadic tours of duty in the United States including brief stints in WWE, but made his name in the wrestling crazed island of Puerto Rico. He headlined and managed World Wrestling Council for many years, where he was a champion many times. Colon had long successful run in the ring, debuting in 1966 and finally retiring in 2008.

Pro Wrestling Examiner's Perspective: Congratulations to Colon and his family as he has been a name that has been talked about since around 2011. His legacy is more than worthy of being recognized the WWE Hall of Fame, despite never making a big impact in the WWE itself.
