ESPN announced this morning that Lisa Moretti, known in WWE as Ivory will be included in the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2018. Continuing its trend of paying attention to pop culture trends, WWE inducts Moretti, the only WWE Diva who performed with GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling), a brand which is currently experiencing a reassurance due to the entertaining but ultimately fictional NETFLIX series.
Each year the WWE chooses one of their female stars from the past. Unfortunately for the WWE and for fans of the Hall of Fame, there are such slim pickings when it comes to real past female stars who are still alive (Luna, Chyna, Miss Elizabeth are still left off due to their deceased status). Therefore we get inductees like Ivory, a semi memorable meh kind of wrestler who really doesn’t belong in the Hall of Fame.
I will do a full breakdown lambasting this choice. In the meantime, shrug your shoulders below at some of Ivory “best” moments.
WWE.com has reported that the 2nd inductees for the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2018 will be none other than the Dudley Boyz!
The Dudleys were rumored back in December with Goldberg, Bam Bam Bigelow, Ivory and Kid Rock as likely for the WWE Hall of Fame this year. It appears as if that list is on point with Goldberg and Dudleys confirmed as of now.
The Dudley Boyz are long time, deserving tag team from the 90s and 2000s, best associated with both ECW (as part of the larger and weirder Dudley Family) and early 2000 WWE, including the oft mentioned and loved first Tag Team TLC matches with Hardys and Edge/Christian.
D’Von Dudley retired from in ring competition in 2016 and has since been working as a WWE Road Agent. Bubba just recently came off his “retirement run” with ROH as his much better character Bully Ray.
Well deserved, considering both men are still in their 40s, perhaps a little soon (especially with Demolition, The British Bulldogs and the Hart Foundation still pending)
Be on the look out for a full Hall of fame profile for the Dudleys including Hall of Fame Ranking coming soon!
What do you think? Are you on board with the Dudley’s inclusion?
