It was announced on the WWE's Twitter page as well as several media outlets that the next Hall of Fame inductee announced is indeed Teddy Long.
Teddy served as a referee in WCW and then became a manager representing people like Ron Simmons and Butch Reed among others. After becoming a referee in the WWE, he shifted to a heel managerial role as well before becoming the General Manager for Smackdown! for four years and then ECW for a stint there as well.
Teddy joins the ranks of the other inductees so far in Kurt Angle and the Rock & Roll Express with Diamond Dallas Page being a rumoured inductee as well.
