This time of year the WWE makes every effort they can to step up their performance. With Wrestlemania around the corner, they want to make sure as many eyes as possible are watching the Granddaddy of Them All. It’s also a time to reflect and honor the past as this is usually the time of year they start announcing the next WWE Hall of Fame class. Thanks to Bryan Alvarez from the Wrestling Observer, we may have some clue as to who will be a part of the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2017. Let’s discuss the picks now but remember, until they’re confirmed by the WWE, these choices are strictly rumor at this point.

Diamond Dallas Page

A deserving choice if there ever was one. Starting off as a manager, he worked his way up in his late 30’s to become a wrestler and eventual WCW World Champion. He had some great run ins with the NWO, spent some time teaming with Karl Malone against Hollywood Hulk Hogan and Dennis Rodman, and had a great match against Goldberg early in Goldberg’s career. While his time in the WWE was not as noteworthy, DDP’s in ring work alone would be worth the nod. Yet his work outside the ring with his DDP Yoga brand is something else all together. Through DDP Yoga, he helped two people that wrestling fans had lost hope for, Jake The Snake Roberts and Scott Hall, get their lives back on track. Those two well known names, on top of all the other folks benefiting from his yoga program, make his career post wrestling probably more rewarding than anything he ever did in the ring. And that’s not a bad thing. That’s a good thing!

The WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony will be held on Friday March 31st at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. You can watch it on the WWE Network.
