This year, the WWE Hall of Fame will welcome four new inductees. Rey Mysterio, the most prominent figure among them, will become the first active wrestler to join the prestigious ranks. With a career spanning over 30 years, Mysterio is arguably the most iconic lucha libre wrestler in history. Adding to the intrigue, Mysterio is scheduled to face his son Dominik in a deeply personal match at Wrestlemania, which could potentially lead to a unique angle during the Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Stacy Keibler, who began her career as Ms. Hancock in WCW, later rose to fame as one of the most popular female stars in WWE in the early 2000s. Andy Kaufman, known for his feud with Jerry Lawler in the early 1980s, was a trailblazer in celebrity involvement in professional wrestling.
