Last year at the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony, seven members of WWE's past made it into the illustrious Hall of Fame. The Ultimate Warrior headlined the group of legends that included Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Trish Stratus, Paul Bearer, Carlos Colon, Mr. T and Razor Ramon. Unfortunately, two of the inductees are no longer with us, as Bearer was inducted posthumously.
At the conclusion of any WWE career, the Hall of Fame is the where they want to end up. The WWE Hall of Fame isn't shrouded in controversy like any other professional Hall of Fame in the world of sports. Each representative deserves the spot they received after years of hard work and dedication.
Throughout the last decade, the Macho Man never made it into the WWE Hall of Fame. After his tragic death in 2011, his brother, Lanny Poffo, was only going along with his brother's wishes, which was to not be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Everything changed with Lanny gave them the green light. On top of that, Vince McMahon said in Stone Cold Steve Austin's podcast that Savage would "absolutely" be in the Hall.
It's 2015 and the inductees will be announced soon for the 2015 class. As of last week, Savage was only being considered for the Hall of Fame. According to TMZ, Randy Savage will be announced tonight as the first 2015-inductee in the WWE Hall of Fame.

Lanny already said that he didn't want to go to the ceremony and induct his brother. That could always change with the right set of circumstances. To WWE fans, it doesn't matter who does the inducting. As long as the Macho Man Randy Savage is in the Hall of Fame, WWE fans will finally be content.
