WWE News: Who Is the Next Superstar to Be Added to the 2012 Hall of Fame Class?

Chris HumphreyCorrespondent IMarch 20, 2012

As we get closer to the 2012 Hall of Fame ceremony in Miami, this year’s class features superstars ranging from former champions like Edge and Ron Simmons—in addition to boxing legend Mike Tyson—to the greatest stable in wrestling history, the Four Horsemen.

Who will be the next former WWE superstar to join this year’s class to go into the WWE Hall of Fame?

From Wrestling News Source:

Two-time WWE Champion Rodney Anoa'i (Yokozuna) was announced to be inducted into the 2012 WWE Hall of Fame at tonight's SmackDown taping in Newark, NJ. 

Anoa'i died aged 34 from Pulmonary edema on October 23, 2000.

During his time in the World Wrestling Federation from 1992 through 1998 when he couldn’t cut his weight back, Yokozuna was a very accomplished superstar in his time in the WWF, as he won the WWE title twice, along with two runs with the late Owen Hart as WWE Tag Team champions.

In addition to his championship accomplishments, Yokozuna was the first person of Samoan descent to win the Royal Rumble in 1993 as well as the first superstar to earn a title shot later that year at WrestleMania.

In my favorite moment from the former champion’s career, the Samoan defeated Bret “Hitman” Hart at WrestleMania IX in Las Vegas to win his first WWE Championship before Hulk Hogan came down to the ring and won the WWE title just minutes after winning the match.

So Bleachers, who would be your pick to headline the 2013 class for the WWE Hall of Fame when WrestleMania makes its way to East Rutherford, NJ next year?
