Wrestlemania week is a more than just the main WWE PPV. It's a whole week of WWE programming, including NXT: Takeover, Axxess, and of course, the Hall of Fame. Each year, the sports entertainment company honors its premiere athletes from the past by immortalizing their contribution to the world of wrestling in its hall of fame.
This year, the WWE Hall of Fame–which you can watch on the WWE Network–will take place at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday, April 6. The show will start at 3:45 PM PT / 6:45 PM ET. As of this writing, WWE is honoring two groups and three people, for a total off 11 inductees. Here is the Class of 2019.
WWE Hall of Fame 2018 Inductees:
- D-Generation X: Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Chyna, X-Pac, Road Dogg, and Billy Gunn
- Harlem Heat: Booker T and Stevie Ray
- Honky Tonk Man
- Torrie Wilson
- Warrior Award: Sue Aitchison
D-Generation X is WWE's biggest and most popular stable from the Attitude Era. It launched the careers of everyone involved, through comedic antics and memorable segments. All of the members of the group–aside from early member/manager Rick Rude–are included for the Hall of Fame. In addition, 10 time WCW Tag Team Champions Harlem Heat are entering as well. Both Booker T and Steve Ray were a dominant force in WCW and the most prolific tag team in the company during this time.
The longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion of all time, Honky Tonk Man, gets this year's honor as well. The wrestler was an iconic heel during the '80s and early '90s. Torrie Wilson, who competed in both WCW and WWE during the early '00s, gets the honor of joining the hall as well. Lastly, this year's Warrior Award goes to none other than WWE employee Sue Aitchison. Throughout her 30 year career with the company, she's a part of community outreach programs and built the relationship with the Make-A-Wish foundation.
