TMZ did report the confirmation of Savage going into the WWE Hall of Fame, and note that the official announcement will be made on Monday Night Raw tonight. During programming on Monday, WWE Network broke in and made the announcement that Savage would be in.
WWE Network used it as a “breaking news” cut-in to all programming. It did state that Savage will be announced tonight and inducted before WrestleMania 31 this year. Now, the wonder is who will induct Randy Savage into the Hall of Fame?
WrestleZone reports that WWE Network interviewed Ricky Steamboat, Gene Okerlund, and Savage’s brother Lanny Poffo about the induction. None of them said much, but the update said that Hulk Hogan is expected to induct Savage into the Hall.

So far, there have been no other names talked about for the 2015 Hall of Fame class. Well, there have been rumors, but no names confirmed. Savage will be the first name announced, and he’s going to the biggest name, by far.
Some rumors have said that Sting could go into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2015, but now that the “Vigilante” has signed a performer’s deal with the company, that seems unlikely.
The 2015 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony will take place this year at the SAP Center in San Jose, California. It is going to happen live on March 28, the night before WrestleMania 31. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Saturday, January 17 at 11 a.m. EST.
Randy Savage’s induction into the WWE Hall of Fame is long overdue since his tragic death in 2011. Many have been on the case of Vince McMahon to put him in it, and now it has finally happen and the Macho Man is going in at the voice of his friend, Hulk Hogan.
