Default 2017 HOF Headliner?

I have a feeling for the second year in the row a active WWE Superstar will headline the WWE Hall Of Fame Class.

Only 2 men I'm history holds that prestige honor. One being 2008 Headliner,"Nature Boy" Ric Flair. The other being 2016 Headliner, "The Icon" Sting. WWE is pretty much at the point where they're out of headliners who aren't under performer contracts currently. Right now you got guys like The Rock,The Undertaker, John Cena,Triple H,Kane,The Big Show,Goldberg,or Chris Jericho, who could realistically go in as active competitors.

As of now, I can't think of anybody being the Headliner besides Goldberg,Rock or Undertaker. Problem with Rock, is he can't make up his mind on whether he is retired or not and has pretty much stated he doesn't want to go in until he's completely done because he doesn't want to be forced out. As for Undertaker, he probably would be the best option. However,rumor has it his match with Cena will be "Career vs. Career."

Wouldn't that give away the outcome? So I guess Goldberg would be perfect...IF he's not planning on making this a full last run. Which from what I hear he is strongly considering.

Only retired name I could see going in as a headliner is "The Animal" Batista, who's contract recently expired last month. Or maybe Rey Mysterio. Problem is I don't think "The Master Of The 619" will be a headliner. Despite the fact that he should be.

My guess is Goldberg,Undertaker,or The Rock.

Mickie james could also be the headliner.

I doubt it but...

The fact is the headliner should be Owen hart every year until he's actually inducted.

I Can see the following for 2017 WWE Hall of Fame as follows

Daniel Bryan
Goldberg
The Dudley Boys (assuming they are retired as a tag team)
Honky Tonk Man (finally)
Beth Phoenix (3 time woman's champ, one time Diva's camp, 2008 Diva of the year)

They'll wait on the Rock and Undertaker til there done for good. The next three or four years your gonna have Kane, Big Show, Mark Henry, HHH, Gold dust and Jericho, and farther down the road The Miz, Ziggler, and ultimately, Cena.

Surely you don't put Beth in before Mickie James or Victoria. They should go in before Beth Phoenix, who obviously will go in at some point.

Ravishing Rick Rude
The Steiner Brothers
The Russian Nightmare Nikita Kolov
Big Van Vader
Sting
Sid Vicious
Lex Luger
Barry Windham
Dan Spivey


All these guys could get a nod towards the hall of fame, but Sting will probably be the big one in 2017.

2 People come to mind.

1. Daniel Bryan. I'm probably one of the few that would support this because frankly, there's isn't a headliner, that's currently retired to, headline next year's class. It never really bothered me to put someone in so soon. I would rather put someone in who has already retired.

2. Goldberg. I have a reason to believe that his match with Brock in a few weeks, could be his last. He's almost 50 and he kinda hinted it off when he said "Brock, not only are you next, but you're last"

Other names that I think should the class are

Brutus The Barber BeefCake. Orlando Local, entertained us 80s kids, former tag champ
Demolition Just put that team in already.
Rick Rude Posthumous Inductee
Vader
Lay Cool Have a female team go in.
Celebrity Maybe Lemi? or give him the warrior award.

Again? He was the headliner for 2016 HOF.

I could see it being Vader. Sure, he's not the strongest option for a headliner, but we're running out of names at this point and I'd argue Vader's career, all things considered, is more than illustrious enough to at least put him in the discussion. Not every headlining name has to be an Austin or a Foley or a Sting, there are a lot of guys a tier lower that deserve the nod as well.

Some of Vader's accomplishments include:

2x Triple Crown Heavyweight Champion (AJPW)
3x IWGP Heavyweight Champion (NJPW)
UWA Heavyweight Champion
3x WCW World Champion
First gaijin to ever hold the IWGP Heavyweight title
First man to hold three world championships from three different continents at the same time
Wrestler of the Year 1993
AND a 20 year career spent almost entirely in the main event.

And that's not even mentioning all the lower tier titles he's won throughout his career. Vader may not have done much in the WWE, but his influence on the business can not be denied.

But it'll likely be Goldberg. I don't think they'd put Bryan in this early and Goldberg has been a long time coming. Now that he's made his peace with the company, there's no reason not to put him in.

I think Goldberg is kind of a package deal... he does the match and then does Mania/HOF... perhaps even wrestling there...

There is one match and tack they could take to squeeze one more match (and a win should Brock cream him) at Mania... have co-headliners who fight each other at Mania... the one match we never quite saw properly but that would have been awesome... Chris Jericho v Goldberg

Goldberg and Jericho BOTH headline the HOF and it gets a little tetchy between them, Jericho feels he should get the honor alone as he has done more in WWE, Goldberg says he could never beat him in the ring or without a sucker punch (not true of course)... it goes back and forth for a couple of months, with Jericho mocking Bill for his loss to Brock and saying how he is still A-List, can go and got there in spite of Goldberg's attempts to hold him down in WCW... He ends his rant with all Bill proved was he doesn't belong in the HOF but he can prove it by facing him at Mania, the one opponent he ducked in WCW and who kicked his ass backstage for real, without the "sucker punch" he claims... If Jericho loses he'll retire, but if Goldberg loses, he's out of the Hall Of Fame!

It'd be a great "spectacle" match for Mania, one that could see both guys really have a fun last hurrah... Goldberg should really lose to Brock, so him going out on a loss is a shame... where as Jericho could take that loss, it fits his idiom to always leave crying and screaming it's unfair... but this time, as part of the HOF where he belongs.

Bryan is likely, but it seems a little forced and soon... I was never a fan of them inducting someone like Edge as soon as they retire through injury as it seems like a consolation prize, rather than a thought out honor. You also CANNOT say Bryan has done as much in WWE as Edge did... so perhaps wait till next year for him.

The other logical headliner for me with Florida the host is The Rock... They probably can get him there for the night itself and Mania, but not to run a programme... a HOF nod is something he can negotiate with his movie people over to do...and if he does another last minute shock match no one will complain too much (Can see him paying off the Rusev stuff) but personally, I think Hollywood is a more fitting location for him to go in.

If I could choose my HOF this year it would be

Goldberg & Jericho (Co-Headliners & facing each other)
The British Bulldog
Rick "The Model" Martel (Deserves it big time... I can see DDP replacing him though)
Brutus Beefcake (The way to get Hogan back in by inducting him, that they just did the whole video thing with him "coming back to WWE" proves he is going in...)
The Rockers (Yep, make Shawn a 2 Time Inductee and give Marty the honor)
Jim Johnstone
Warrior Award: Kris Travis (UK wrestler who passed from Cancer)

The female inductee is kind of a problem, no one left really "deserves it" in the way the following 3 do... Woman/Nancy Benoit, Elizabeth or Chyna... all are dead so would mean losing Davey, Rude or Pillman (all 3 should be in there now) and have their own controversies... They could get away with Woman by inducting her as that name and instructing no reference to her death, but maybe they should... She wasn't responsible and shouldn't lose her place in the HOF because of Benoit. They just have to avoid Sullivan inducting her... Same for Liz, Luger inducting her or going in the same time would be poor taste and lead to "you killed Liz chants" but Lanny could easily do it as her ex-brother in law or someone like Lita or Trish...

Lemmy himself could headline the hall of fame, get Metallica to do there motorhead impression, it would lend credibility to the celebrity wing, and if james and Lars aste there, might give Vince some needed mainstream exposure.


Re ms. Elisabeth the only person to induct her should be hogan, you could have valiant or any of Beefcakes tsg team partners induct him.
