There are now four names confirmed to enter the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014—and it appears the fifth member could well be another familiar face with fans of both WWE and WCW.

The company has already announced that Lita, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, The Ultimate Warrior and the late Paul Bearer will be inducted prior to WrestleMania XXX this year.

It has been suggested by Sean Waltman—aka X-Pac—that he is about to induct someone into the Hall of Fame this year, as reported on by Marc Middleton over at

For what it's worth, Sean Waltman wrestled the main event for Charro Mania Lucha Libre 2014 in Brownsville, TX this past Saturday and mentioned to fans that he will be at WrestleMania XXX this year to induct his friend Scott Hall into the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame.

As noted earlier, Hall has been rumored for several weeks to be one of this year's inductees.

It is interesting to note that if Hall is indeed going to be inducted, Waltman would be the man to do it. Many would have imagined that one of Hall's former nWo members such as Kevin Nash would have been doing the induction for Hall.

Of course, Hall is most memorable with WWE fans for his Razor Ramon character, which saw him generate enormous popularity in the 1990s. He was a four-time intercontinental champion during his time with the company and is arguably one of the most recognizable figures of his time.

It seems remarkable that Hall has not been inducted by now—with reasons other than wrestling perhaps the only suggestion as to why Scott Hall does not have a Hall of Fame ring on his finger.

Nevertheless, Hall's impact on the Attitude Era and the Monday Night Wars with the New World Order is incredibly significant, and certainly merits a place in the WWE's most illustrious of clubs. With such an iconic WrestleMania on the horizon, perhaps now will be the time that Hall and the remainder of the New World Order will be enshrined in the Hall of Fame.

His role in the nWo during the Invasion storyline was also another important part of his pro wrestling career, and he was a huge part of the massive change professional wrestling saw during the early 2000s. There can be little doubt amongst wrestling circles that if he does get a Hall of Fame ring in 2014, it is very much deserved.

Does Scott Hall deserve his place in the WWE Hall of Fame, if he is to be inducted? Join the debate by leaving your comments below.
