Torrie Wilson announced as latest 2019 inductee to WWE Hall of Fame

Torrie Wilson

WWE have officially revealed the latest inductee into their Hall of Fame will be Torrie Wilson.

After the announcements of D-Generation X and The Honky Tonk Man in the last few weeks, speculation has been rife in recent days that Wilson and Brutus 'The Barber' Beefcake will be the next names to be confirmed.

And the rumours seem to be true as Wilson becomes the third member of the class of 2019 to be officially announced.

Wilson started out with WCW in 1999, managing the likes of David Flair and Billy Kidman before being released in December 2000, just months before the company was bought by Vince McMahon.

She debuted in the WWE during the 'Invasion' angle where WCW and ECW stars waged war on WWE, and regularly teamed-up with Stacy Keibler against the females of WWE.

Wilson was regularly involved with males in her storylines, having an on-screen relationship with Tajiri before re-uniting with Kidman, who was her real-life boyfriend at the time.

A controversial feud started in late 2002 on SmackDown where Wilson began a rivalry with Dawn Marie, a storyline in which her real-life father Al 'died' in storyline which proved to be rather controversial.

Wilson became a popular figure in 2003 after appearing on the cover of famous magazine Playboy, and in her later WWE years and post-wrestling career has appeared in several celebrity shows and even a Timbaland music video.

She quietly retired from the business in 2008 after being released without ever winning a championship, and has since become a successful fitness instructor and blogger.

Wilson did in-fact return though for the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble in 2018 and appeared yet again at the first-ever WWE all-women's pay-per-view, Evolution, but her full-time wrestling career is now behind her.

There's actually been a mixed response towards Wilson's inclusion, with some fans stating that there's other more deserving people than her such as Chyna and Molly Holly.

Congratulations, Torrie!
