According to WWE sources close to Wrestlezone, the first inductee for the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2014 is expected to be announced tonight on 'RAW'. Tickets for the WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony tickets go on sale this Saturday January 18th. The ceremony takes place at the New Orleans Arena on Saturday April 5th, the night before Wrestlemania 30.
Every year WWE creates buzz for this Wrestlemania week event by announcing the biggest star of that individual class the week tickets go on sale. If WWE follows this route, than fans should expect an announcement tonight on 'RAW' on the USA Network.
All signs point to the Ultimate Warrior as the first name announced for the 2014 class of honorees. Warrior who had a long public feud with WWE that even saw both sides battle in court, reportedly made peace with Vince McMahon last year. Rumors of Ultimate Warrior getting inducted have been circulating for years. After the iconic '80s wrestler appeared in a TV commercials promoting the 'WWE 2K14' video game last year, it seemed more likely than ever that the Warrior would get the call for the HOF honors.
Adding to this story, is the confirmation that WWE is setting to release a 'best-of' Ultimate Warrior DVD collection. This anthology is expected to be a collection of matches, and not a documentary like the company's controversial "Self-Desctruction of the Ultimate Warrior" which was released in 2005.
