    WWE Hall Of Fame 2012 News Thread

    Looks like the first Mexican will be in the HOF

    Super Luchas Magazine in Mexico is reporting that Mil Mascaras will be inducted into the 2012 Class of the WWE Hall of Fame and that they've confirmed that with Mascaras himself.
    Mascaras is the uncle of current WWE champion Alberto Del Rio and a huge international star for many, many, many decades.

    He is scheduled for the Smackdown taping that is currently ongoing in Mexico.

    Nothing wrong with that. Mil Mascaras also wrestled some for the WWE in the 1980's.

    Didnt he also wrestle in one of the Rumbles in the 90;s?(97 maybe?).

    Very deserving of the honor, and it makes sense with the WWE trying to get bigger in Mexico which they see as a big market at the moment.

    Nice to see a Mexican wrestling legend in the HOF, since he's the uncle of ADR who's soon to be the main Mexican star in WWE, makes a lot of sense.

    The Man of a Thousand Masks, Mil Mascaras was a legend even when I was a little kid and totally deserves this honour. I am quite happy to see it.

    Yeah, 1997, but that fairly meaningless.

    Even if some guys, including Jericho (?) makes him sound like a complete asshat, I can definitely see why he should be in the HOF. Good deal.

    Excellent choice. Here is hoping Arn Anderson also get in this year. I fully expect this to be the year Savage gets his due as well.

    With it being in Florida and Savage being fresh on people's minds, now would be the best time. While it's unlikely, it'd be nice to have a second Savage DVD released soon afterward to include his big and best matches not included on the previous set along with his HOF induction.

    I dunno about Savage. I think they will and I'd love to see it, but I also think they'll be inducting the Rock, who will be the clear headliner. I'd rather Savage get to headline a HOF ceremony of his own, instead of being the second guy after Rocky.

    I don't think any wrestler going in posthumously will ever be the headline act.

    So so far we have Edge, Mil Mascaras, The Four Horsemen and possibly

    And now there is a lot of talk of Yokozuna being inducted as well.

    Yoko would be cool. Disappointed no Macho/Liz this year, but I guess it could be looked at as Vince just capitalizing on his passing.

    Sorry but when was Mil Mascaras announced as an inductee? Don't recall anything about him being mentioned on RAW or in these past few days.

    I'm delighted Mil Mascaras is going in, is about time. He's a complete legend, despite the fact that he has a reputation for being a total assclown.
    Not surprised Edge is going in already. I thought they would wait more than a year post-retirement before HBK went in, but I was way-wrong there and in hindsight I shouldn't have been. No mistake this time around though, this was almost a lock!
    I don't think Savage will go in this year, as people would see it as profiteering, even though it almost certainly wouldn't be at this stage. I reckon he's going in next year instead, and will finally be where he belongs.
    All 4 Horsemen going in is a good move too. Flair inducted twice will be weird, but pretty cool, and certainly Blanchard and Anderson should be going in on their own merit.
