The 2013 WWE Hall of Fame class is arguably the best in WWE history, with two of the longest reigning WWE Champions of all time, one of the most popular divas to ever wrestle there, and a true hardcore legend. PWInsider reported on Feb. 27 that there should be two more names brought in and also mentioned who might be inducting the wrestlers.
So far, the inductees include Bruno Sammartino and Bob Backlund, two of the longest reigning WWE champions ever; Trish Stratus, one of the most popular divas from the Attitude Era; Mick Foley, the most beloved hardcore wrestler of all time; and Donald Trump, an inductee for the celebrity wing.
Two other rumored names include Kamala, a classic pro wrestling monster who recently had his legs amputated, and Ivan Koloff, the legendary Russian Bear. Koloff was also a former world champion, beating Sammartino to end Bruno's first title reign. His induction would almost wrap up every 1970s championship title holder (Stan Stasiak would be the only WWE champion not in the WWE Hall of Fame).
As for the inductees, the WWE wants Arnold Schwarzenegger to induct his friend Bruno Sammartino. For Mick Foley, they are considering having two men introduce him with Jim Ross joined by Terry Funk. Donald Trump will probably have his daughter Ivanka induct him.
The best bet for Trish Stratus is Lita, although Fit Finley is also a possibility. For Bob Backlund, the WWE is looking at names like Sgt. Slaughter, Roddy Piper or celebrity Maria Menounos.
