“Ravishing” Rick Rude is another expected that is expected to be inducted into the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame, reports PWInsider.
Roode, who passed away in April 1999, made appearances for WWE, WCW and ECW, among others. He held the WWE Intercontinental Title and the WCW United States Heavyweight Title, among others. He was forced to retire after suffering a back injury during a match against Sting in 1994.
There are rumors of a current WWE employee being inducted this year but we haven’t confirmed that name yet.
As previously reported, we reported that Diamond Dallas Page would be inducted into this year’s class.
