Rey Mysterio announced for the WWE Hall of Fame
Rey Mysterio is going into the WWE Hall of Fame.
WWE announced during tonight’s SmackDown on FOX that Mysterio will be the headliner for the 2023 WWE Hall of Fame Class. This makes him the only active Superstar to be in the Hall.
Rey is expected to wrestle his son Dominik Mysterio at WrestleMania 39 that same weekend.
Mysterio is the only name announced for the 2023 Class as of this writing, but multiple sources have reported that The Great Muta will also be inducted.
The 2023 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony is scheduled for Friday, March 31 from the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, right after the WrestleMania 39 go-home edition of SmackDown goes off the air in the same venue.

Well deseving but in my opinion returning wrestlers in the HOF cheapens the HOF but current roster makes it even worse. Considering there still isn’t a physical building or site. Even a site at Titan Towers give it more crediability
It was a little weird hearing everyone talk about him in the past tense in the video package. I get that he’s in the twilight of his career, but he isn’t dead and he isn’t retired yet. Unless that’s where they’re going with him & Dominik, in which case, ugh.

So an another Japanese male goes in and deservedly so but unfortunately means that the WWE Hall of Fame is still without Japanese Women and there plenty of Japanese Women from 80s and 90s (The 6 Japanese women on the 1995 Women Survivor Series teams, then there also Bull Nakono, Akria Hokuto and Dump Matsumoto [competed in WWE in 1986 with Nakono as The Devils of Wrestling ) who competed in a WWE, WCW or an ECW ring even if it is for one match that deserve be in the WWE Hall of Fame even the Jumping Bomb Angels.
