ESPN badly botches the latest WWE Hall Of Fame inductee announcement

It's currently the time of year where week after week WWE begins announcing their Hall Of Fame class. The inductions typically take place the day before WrestleMania in a local arena separate from where Mania is being held.

So far this year WWE has announced names such as Goldberg, The Dudley Boyz, and Ivory for the honors. The latter was the most recent name announced and ESPN had the duties of breaking the news to the WWE Universe.

In their initial Tweet ESPN captioned their announcement: "BREAKING from @espnW - @REALLiSAMARiE to be inducted into WWE Hall of Fame:" before linking their article.

Just one issue - @REALLiSAMARiE isn't Ivory's Twitter handle. That handle belongs to another former WWE Women's Champion, Victoria.

ESPN quickly realized their mistake and took the Tweet down, but not before WrestleVotes could nap a screenshot of the mishap:

For those of you who don't know, Victoria is not currently a WWE Hall Of Famer, nor are their any reported plans to induct her anytime soon. The argument could be made, however, that she does deserve a spot in the coveted hall.

Victoria is a former two-time WWE Women's Champion and was quite the dominant force inside the squared circle during her day. She was a part of a great Women's Division that included Lita, Trish Stratus, and Mickie James.

Of course Ivory is also deserving of her spot amongst the greats. She has won the Women's Title three times, defended it successfully several times against top opponents, and was one of the very few to pin Chyna cleanly inside the ring.

With that being said Ivory will join The Dudley Boyz and Goldberg in this year's class. There will definitely be more names to be announced soon, with Mark Henry being one of the top names rumored.

What are your thoughts on ESPN botching the announcement of Ivory going into the Hall Of Fame by tagging Victoria in the Twitter post? How do you feel about Ivory getting the nod over the likes of Chyna or Victoria this year? Do you think we'll ever see either of those men inside the illustrious Hall Of Fame one day? Have YOUR say in the comments section below, and the fourth episode of GiveMeSport’s WWE podcast is here!
