PWInsider has confirmed more entrants into this year’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The class as of now consists of: “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Rikishi, Former Mr. Universe Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ray Stevens and “Big Sexy” Kevin Nash.

First up is considered to be an absolute legend in Japan and has notable feuds throughout the years with Ric Flair and Big Van Vader for the esteemed NWA Heavyweight Champion. He has won some international WWF titles throughout his esteemed wrestling career. PWI ranked him number 31 of the top 500 wrestlers of the PWI years. He’s mostly known for his 6 IWGP Heavyweight Titles and 5 IWGP Tag Team Titles, 4 of which were with Kengo Kimura. His name is Tatsumi Fujinami but people mostly know him for his time under the moniker of “The Dragon” as he was the innovator of the Dragon Suplex and Dragon Sleeper.

Next up is former Women’s Champion and the highly controversial, Debrah Miceli. Also known as “Medusa” and Alundra Blayze, she was the center of a very disrespectful act towards the title that she won in the WWE formerly the WWF. She hopped shows in 1995 to join the now defunct WCW with the belt and absolutely trashed it on live television. She won the WWE belt 3 times in her career and surprisingly even held the WCW Crusierweight Title on one occasion. She is now a monster truck driver and is now the Executive Vice President of the Major League of Monster Trucks.

Finally a notable tag team will be inducted as well. No, it’s not the British Bulldogs yet, it’s a team that brought more humor and jokes to fans with their weird and brash personas. Luke Williams and Butch Miller collectively known as the Bushwackers round out the recent list of Inductees to the WWE Hall of Fame for now. They have competed in an amazing 11 different promotions including ECW, AWA and of course the WWF. They were ranked 71 of the top 100 tag teams by the PWI. In the promotions they competed in they won the tag gold on 15 occasions. However the surprising statistic was that they never captured tag team gold in the WWE, they were more like the classic fan friendly children loving goof balls that would challenge the top tag teams like the BodyDonnas but would never win.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
