With Mick Foley, Bob Backlund, Trish Stratus and the legendary Bruno Sammartino already confirmed for the WWE's 2013 Hall of Fame class, it stands as arguably the greatest of all time. At least one or two more inductees are forthcoming though, and one of them could may be an addition to the Hall of Fame's celebrity wing.
Each of the past three classes has included a celebrity with Mike Tyson, Drew Carey and Bob Uecker getting enshrined. Also, William "Refrigerator" Perry and Pete Rose were immortalized in 2006 and 2004 respectively. The WWE has made a habit of putting non-traditional wrestlers in the Hall of Fame, and while there are mixed feelings from the fans about it, there are definitely celebrities out there who deserve to be recognized.
Without celebrity involvement, it's possible that the WWE would have never experienced a boom in the mid-1980s. There probably wouldn't have been an Attitude Era further down the line either. In fact, professional wrestling could still be broken up into territories rather than being an international phenomenon.
Vince McMahon and his talent deserve a ton of credit for making the WWE a success, but celebrities played a big role as well.
Since the induction ceremony is taking place at Madison Square Garden this year, the current class has been very MSG-centric. Both Sammartino and Backlund sold out The Garden numerous times, and Foley is from Long Island. Because of that, a potential celebrity inductee will likely have MSG or New York roots.
Here are the top five celebrities who could potentially join Foley, Backlund, Stratus and Sammartino as a WWE Hall of Famer in 2013.
