The weekend of WrestleMania 32 is going to be one of the biggest for WWE in years for a number of reasons. Not only will the gigantic pay-per-view happen on Sunday. NXT Takeover: Dallas happen will on Friday, and on Saturday night, the 2016 class will head into the WWE Hall of Fame. Another inductee has been named, and Stan Hansen may be one of the most deserving yet.
He was known for his sheer strength, brutality, and letting tobacco chaw spill down his chin and chest as he wrestled. Stan Hansen was nicknamed “The Lariat,” and it was because of the gigantic clothesline he would deliver to his opponents to finish him off.
On Monday afternoon, WWE.com officially announced that Hansen would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame with the rest of the 2016 class.
