The announcement was made in Japan last night that Japanese legend Antonio Inoki has been invited by the WWE to be part of the 2010 Class of the WWE Hall of Fame. 

Word as of now is that Stan Hansen will be inducting him at the ceremony. 

It is sure that in the weeks to come, we will see more names confirmed leading up to WrestleMania 26 itself. 

Inoki has had many memorable matches in his storied career and his matches with the legendary Ric Flair are what dreams are made of.

Congratulations to Antonio Inoki on his impending induction.
