The 2018 WWE Hall Of Fame ceremony takes place on Friday, April 6th, and the names of potential nominees are already starting to filter through.
As originally reported by freelancer Brad Shepard, Bill Goldberg is set to be this year's headliner, having cemented his WWE legacy through his acclaimed 2016-17 feud with Brock Lesnar. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has now corroborated this, which should all but confirm his induction.
The Dudley Boyz's names were also on the original list. Given that they're set to appear as part of Raw's 25th Anniversary show on January 22nd, there's a chance WWE could announce their induction that night.
Bam Bam Bigelow, Ivory, and Kid Rock (as part of the celebrity wing) have also been rumoured for induction. None were mentioned in this week's Observer, but each has been the subject of much speculation over the past few weeks, just like Goldberg and the Dudleyz.
Tickets for the HOF ceremony go on sale on Friday, January 19th, so it's likely that WWE will start revealing the inductees very soon, in order to drive interest levels. Goldberg, as the headliner, should be the first name announced, followed by the others.
