The lineup for this class continues to grow.
The sports entertainment company has already revealed who the headliner of this class will be, which is former Universal Champion Goldberg, and he is well deserving for this honor.
Goldberg has had quite the career in professional wrestling. Make no mistake about it, he was the top star of World Championship Wrestling (WCW) at the peak of the Monday Night Wars.
While under contract with WCW between 1997 and 2001, Goldberg rose to fame in WCW with a lengthy undefeated streak in singles competition from 1997 to 1998, which was considered the longest winning streak in professional wrestling.
While under the WCW banner, he became WCW United States Champion and WCW World Heavyweight Champion. He was also a one-time WCW World Tag Team Champion (with Bret Hart), making him along with Hart the fifth WCW Triple Crown winner.
He finally went to work for WWE Chairman Vince McMahon between 2003 and 2004 where he became a one-time World Heavyweight Champion in the latter.
After twelve years away from the company, he returned to WWE in 2016 and headlined Survivor Series against Brock Lesnar, and Fastlane against Kevin Owens where he won the WWE Universal Championship.
He lost the title to Lesnar at WrestleMania 34 earlier this year in Orlando, Florida. He was last seen on WWE television the night after Mania on Raw.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Bam Bam Bigelow and Kid Rock are still expected to be named to the WWE Hall of Fame class.
