WWE has officially announced Kevin Nash as a WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2015 inductee.
Yes, it will be Nash that will get the nod and he won’t have to go in as Diesel.
There has been a story surrounding the induction of Nash that we first brought you on March 13, 2015 here on Wrestling News World Premium. Vince McMahon originally wanted Nash to go in as Diesel — like Scott Hall went in as Razor Ramon — so Nash himself could be inducted later with the nWo. Nash was so against going in as Diesel, we were told he was willing to sit out the Hall of Fame altogether.
When we broke the news that Nash’s induction would be announced today, we noted that Vince was still trying to get him to go in as Diesel. We’re told production had videos made up for both Diesel and Nash so they would be prepared regardless.
In dot com’s coverage, it’s Nash that gets the nod but Diesel featured in the picture.
Nash completes the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame induction class that now looks like this:
- “Macho Man” Randy Savage (inducted by Hulk Hogan)
- Arnold Schwarzenegger
- Rikishi (inducted by The Usos)
- The Bushwhackers (rumored to be inducted by John Laurinaitis)
- Alundra Blayze
- Tatsumi Fujinami
- Warrior Award recipient Connor Michalek
The 2015 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place the night before Wrestlemania 31 on Saturday, March 28, 2015 from the SAP Center in San Jose, California.
