WWEhas announced that The Godfather will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2016. As previously noted, Sting will be the headliner.
It ain’t easy being The Godfather. But after a long career, the highly entertaining Superstar will receive sports-entertainment’s biggest honor. As first reported by Bleacher Report, he is the latest inductee in the WWE Hall of Fame’s Class of 2016.
Remembered most to WWE audiences as a fun-loving staple of the Attitude Era, The Godfather’s journey to the Hall of Fame was certainly one wild train ride.
In the late ‘90s he was most recognizable for being the muscle of The Nation of Domination, but as that group began to slowly disband, The Godfather seemingly began to have more and more women accompany him to ringside every week.
This trend continued after The Nation officially split and The Godfather quickly transitioned into one of the WWE Universe’s most beloved Superstars, both for his attractive supporting cast and for his enigmatic charisma and charm.
The 2016 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place Saturday, April 2, 2016 from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, exas. Tickets go on sale on Friday at 10 AM ET.
