The news is coming fast and furious as it relates to the newest potential inductees into the WWE Hall of Fame, which will take place on WrestleMania weekend. Although nothing has yet been announced by WWE in regards to any names, sources are reporting that a second name has already been confirmed for induction. This time, the wrestler in question is former WWE, WCW, and ECW Superstar Rick Rude, thought by many to be one of the most deserving wrestlers not currently in the Hall.
Rude, a Minnesota native, is a former WWF Intercontinental Champion, WCW US Champion, and three-time WCW International Heavyweight Champion (aka The Big Gold Belt), and considered one of the premier heels of the 1990’s. He was also a member of both D-Generation X and the New World Order, and a respected veteran within the business. Rude sadly passed away in 1999, at the age of 40.
