The news was broke on Twitter by The Usos a few hours before Raw aired, they tweeted:

Rikishi is also the uncle of Roman Reigns, former WWE Champion The Rock and former WWE superstar Yokozuna. 

Before the official announcement, WWE teased that the next inductee would be from a famous family, either Hart or Anoa'i, which had many fans guessing the identity of the former superstar.

Rikishi joined the WWF back in 1992 as part of the tag-team The Headshrinkers. During his tenure with the WWE, Rikishi hekd the Intercontinental Champion once, World Tag Team Champion twice, and WWE Tag Team Champion once.

He is mostly known for his dancing and his famous "stink face" move that quickly became a fan favorite during his time with the company. 

He returned to WWE last year as a part of Old School Raw back in January, before briefly being involved in a storyline on Total Divas where he refused to attend his son Jimmy Uso's wedding to WWE Diva Naomi. 

The fourth inductee to be announced next week on Raw has been rumored to be "The Living Legend" Larry Zbyszko. The former WCW superstar has been a regular at WWE events lately, including NXT tapings and WrestleMania access, and this has started speculation that he is about to take his place amongst wrestling's elite this year.
