Report: A faction could headline class of 2014 for the WWE hall of fame



WWE has reportedly discussed the possibility of having Degeneration X being the headliner for the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame in New Orleans. There have also been reports that Chyna could even be included in the induction because WWE wants to have entire group present, reports PWInsider.com. Ever since the deal with Bruno Sammartino for the hall of fame was secured earlier this year, backstage officials are saying that anybody could enter if he did.

    that would be awesome if she did

  2. Helio says:

    It’s not enough to be induced in the HOF anymore. Now you have to headline the ceremony.

  3. MC Live says:

    @Helio- no idea what you’re talking about. A Hall of Famer is a Hall of Famer. Who headlines is just a matter of the biggest name in the class. Who was at the top of the billing for the 2010 Pro Football Hall of Fame? Jerry Rice and Emitt Smith. But does that diminish the careers of Russ Grimm, Rickey Jackson, Dick LeBeau, Floyd Little, or John Randle? No. A Hall of Famer is a Hall of Fame. The headliner is just the big name to draw tickets, which might even be a useless point on top of that. I think the hall of fame will sell tickets on its own.

    Anyway, one day DX will go in. That’s a given. But I’d like to see Triple H go in by himself first.

    I wonder if the NWO will get the same treatment eventually…

  5. Steve B says:

    rick rude better be included if this happens

  6. James says:

    I kind of understand what Helio is saying. They do put a lot more emphasis on the headliner of the Hall of Fame then they do the others. It’s true that a HoFer is still a HoFer but it’s got to be a kick in the balls if one person or group gets preferential treatment.

  7. Scott II says:

    Saxon, I would figure the nWo will at some point.

    And James, I can see your point, but sometimes, there has to be one name/group that sells that year’s HOF. DX would no doubt be the headlining group, not unless something even bigger happened like The Rock getting the HOF nod.

    Randy Savage

    Until that happens, the HOF is a joke.

  9. WhatIDo says:

    Helio has a fair point. One Hall of Famer shouldn’t be given more attention than another, a Hall of Famer is a Hall of Famer it should be a special night for all of them, not just the “top name”. Although I do think it is less about politics and more about trying to get people to tune in.

    Anyone else find it extremely normal that HHH is running the show, giving himself a bunch of air time, putting Road Dog in a comfy new creative position, and now putting D-X into the hall of fame? I know the guy has been on a power trip since day one, but can he not be so obvious about it?

  10. I Love Steph's says:

    Yup the nWo…Scott Norton, Vincent, Stevie Ray, Horace Hogan, How about that huh…sounds good

  11. leg lover j says:

    WWE Hof is Fake!!! Just like Sports Entertainment! Pro Wrestling is Real!

  12. ~J* says:

    they can do that its not pg brah, chyna can’t be there yelling suck it!!!!!!!

  13. Really? says:

    SD Jones, Drew carey, Donald Trump and Pete Rose are in there while Randy Savage, Owen Hart, and Lou Thesz are not. It’s not exactly a legit hall of fame, so who really cares what they do with it? Let Triple H induct himself multiple times as Terra Ryzing, Jean Paul Levesque, Original DX, Post Shawn Michaels DX, McMahon Helmsely Regime, 2 Man Power Trip, The Game, and Hunter Hearst Helmsely if he wants to. No reason to take it seriously. They certainly don’t.

  14. Highfly says:

    Honestly I think this would suck. These wrestlers deserve to be inducted on their own merits. Not as a unit. Other than x-pac they all played a huge role in the WWF days and should be inducted for other reasons than DX.

    Do a DX induction AFTER they have been in individually. Tag Teams can go into together but Factions should be treated like a separate “Wing” of the HOF. Like they have a celebrity “wing” they can also have a faction wing.

  15. Zach says:

    Owen and Randy are not in because the Hart family doesn’t want him in the HOF and Randy Savage I’m sure opted himself to not be inducted

  16. jimmypink says:

    nWo should be inducted.
    And of course Macho Man!!!

  17. T says:

    I agree with “Really”. The WWE HOF is a joke. It’s Vinces take on history and leaving out lots of stars from the territorial era plus others is typical McMahon behavior. If you are not on good terms with Vince he will mock you (Huckster and Nacho Man) or pretend you never existed (Benoit) or get rid of your name in the record books.

    Putting DX in is just another way for Vince to try to legitimize his Son in Laws career.

  18. Total Divas Fan says:

    you are kiddin yourself if you think DX should not get in as the headliner. they kept the company a float when WCW had its chance to take over. They are a game changer. HHH can still get in on his own, none of the others are HOF worthy. you can argue the NAO as a team., but singles no way. It sets up HBK to go in twice and washes away the ric flair 2x HOF. as for the NWO…. I say no, not as a whole. the outsiders yes for sure. why not put BWO in the HOF too
