WWE announced on Monday that Sting will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on the eve of Wrestlemania 32.
“We are truly honored to have Sting take his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame,” said WWE’s Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative, Paul Levesque. “His contributions to our industry are unprecedented, and we look forward to celebrating his incredible career with fans all over the world.”
At this point, Sting can be considered the headliner for the 2016 WWE Hall of Fame class as the company typically announces a marquee name before tickets go on sale before filling out the class with week to week announcements on the road to Wrestlemania. Sting last competed for WWE at Night of Champions last September when he suffered a serious neck injury.
The 2015 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place Saturday, April 2, 2016 from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Tickets go on sale on Friday at 10 AM ET.
