Former WWF superstar Randy Savage is set to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame tonight on Monday Night Raw, sources have told FoxSports.com

The so called "Macho Man" wrestled in the then called WWF from 1985 to 1994 and was one of the most popular superstars in the 1980's, but sadly passed away in 2011. 

It's understood that the announcement will be made on Raw tonight, with the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony set to take place in San Jose on Saturday, March 28, the night before WWE's biggest pay-per-view of the year, WrestleMania 31.

Savage to be honored 

Savage gained notoriety in the 80's for his ability in the ring. The Macho Man was great on the mic in the ring, and his unique interview style made for some bizarre moments on TV.

"Randy "Macho Man" Savage, who wrestled in the then-WWF from 1985-1994 is headed to the WWE Hall of Fame, sources tell FoxSports.com," reported FoxSports. "The official announcement will come Monday night on the company's flagship show, "Monday Night Raw.""

Change of stance 

This signifies a huge change of heart regarding WWE's stance on Randy Savage, after he left the company back in 1994 in somewhat acrimonious circumstances.

Savage is alleged to have had an affair with Vince McMahon's daughter, Stephanie, and subsequently just after the time of the alleged affair, Savage was fired by WWE.

The circumstances of his departure have since been clouded in mystery. It's one of the most famous WWE urban legends, and even expert wrestling writer David Meltzer has conceded that the affair probably happened.

Subsequently, the WWE's decision to induct him into the Hall of Fame is a considerable change of stance. And maybe just maybe, Vince has forgiven the former star.
