We got a stacked WWE Hall of Fame Class this year, ladies and gentlemen!
Since the ceremony was cancelled last year due to the whole coronavirus outbreak, all of the 2020 inductees will go in this year (save for Batista, who couldn't make it - he'll go in next year), which means the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2020/21 is as follows:
John "Bradshaw" Layfield (2020)
The British Bulldog
Jushin "Thunder" Liger (2020)
New World Order (nWo); Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman (2020)
The Bella Twins (2020)
Molly Holly (2021)
Eric Bischoff (2021)
The Great Khali (2021)
….and now, somebody who is TRULY one of a kind - Rob Van Dam.
I was sooooo excited about this news, personally. Stoked, even.
Rob Van Dam has forever been one of my favorites, since I was a little kid; from his amazing martial arts inspired moveset (that was always SO MUCH FUN to play with in the video games), to his eccentric/hypnotic airbrushed singlets, to the 'R-V-D' pose and 'Five Star Frog Splash' itself, I don't know what's not to love!
I'll never forget watching him win the WWE Championship off John Cena at ECW One Night Stand (with the help of Edge/Paul Heyman, of course) in 2006 - truly an incredible moment in professional wrestling at that time….
Plus, the fact that he convinced Vince McMahon that the '420 Legdrop' (which he'd been using with Rey Mysterio) was called as such because it involved four legs and '20' was their combined shoe size is worthy of a HoF induction alone….
Let's smoke a joint and do an interview down in Tampa!
