2015 is the year that many WWE fans have been waiting for. At long last Vince McMahon and the WWE will induct Worldwide Wrestling legend Macho Man Randy Savage, into their Hall of Fame, reports say.
His omission from the WWE Hall of Fame has endured questions over its very existence and legitimacy. However it appears that all comes to an end now, as WWE.com broke the news with the following.
"It's not official yet, but it is expected that "Macho Man" Randy Savage will be announced tonight (12th January) Raw as the first inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame's Class of 2015, WWE.com has learned."
Macho Man was an iconic wrestling superstar in the 1980's and 1990's with the WWF/E and WCW respectively. He tragically died in a car accident in 2011 and is rightfully regarded as one of the best wrestlers of all time, and fans have been clamouring for his induction for a long time.
Including a short run in TNA in late 2004 and early 2005, he shocked and thrilled audiences around the world during his 32-year in ring career. His instantly recognisable colourful ring attire, music and incredible wrestling style is often imitated but never bettered still to this day.

Speculation accelerated that he would be inducted this year when WWE Chairman Vince McMahon told Stone Cold Steve Austin he would "definitely" take his rightful place one day. That same level of speculation will now fall on other likely inductees in the Hall of Fame class of 2015 with former WCW and TNA Sting strongly rumoured.
