WWE WrestleMania 28: WWE Hall of Fame 2012 Class Primer for Younger/Casual Fans

This Saturday night, WWE will present the ninth annual WrestleMania weekend Hall of Fame ceremony.  While the Hall was started in 1993 to induct Andre the Giant shortly after his death and a small induction ceremony took place annually from 1994 to 1996, it went on hiatus until the weekend of WrestleMania 20 in 2004.

Since then, the night before WrestleMania has been reserved to honor various pro wrestling legends for their contributions both in and outside of WWE. Attending the inductions has become a major part of the in-person WrestleMania weekend.

Anyway, knowing that we have a very wide audience here at B/R that includes a number of younger and relatively casual fans, I figured it would be fun to go over the this year's inductees and explain their historical significance to those who might not be familiar with some of them. Having said that, even if you're familiar with all of the inductees, I have a ridiculous assortment of trivia in my head, so you may still learn something.

Let's get on with it!
