From the WWE Rumor Mill: WWE legend to induct Goldberg into Hall of Fame?
What's the story?
Goldberg will be headlining the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2018. As of now, WWE hasn't officially announced who will induct Goldberg into the Hall of Fame but as of now, it looks like it will be none other than Paul Heyman.
There has been no official word from WWE on the matter yet but we can expect an announcement soon.
In case you didn't know...
Earlier this week, we learned that Edge and Christian will be inducting The Dudley Boyz into the WWE Hall of Fame. The news came straight from the horse's mouth with Edge announcing it on Sirius XM’s Busted Open Radio.
Edge revealed that Bubba Ray has extended the honour to him and Christian.
The heart of the matter
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter first reported that Paul Heyman would be the one to induct Goldberg into the WWE Hall of Fame. As of now, WWE hasn't confirmed this because they want to keep the news under wraps till they are ready to reveal it.
This would make sense because Goldberg and Paul Heyman are good friends in real-life. Goldberg is also good friends with Brock Lesnar and went to support Brock in his first UFC fight against Shane Carwin at UFC 116 in 2010.
We will have to wait on official word from WWE until this is confirmed; With WrestleMania getting closer, we should get confirmation soon.
Paul Heyman inducting Goldberg into the WWE Hall of Fame makes a lot of sense. Not only is Heyman good friends with Goldberg but we can all be rest assured that his induction speech will be worthy of a wrestler of Goldberg's stature.
