The latest 2014 inductee set to be awarded a place in the WWE's Hall of Fame was revealed on Tuesday.

As reported by Wrestlinginc.com, it was revealed during tapings for this week's edition of Smackdown that Carlos Colon Snr. will join the likes of legendary diva Lita and the late Paul Bearer in this year's class.

Puerto Rican Colon - the father of former WWE Intercontinental and United States champion Carlito and Primo - last performed for the company during it's 'WWF' era in the early 1990s and made an appearance at the 1993 Royal Rumble where he was eliminated by Yokozuna after just under seven-and-a-half minutes.

Given the little time that Colon actually spent wrestling himself in the WWE, his inclusion in the Hall of Fame may come as somewhat of a surprise to more modern fans of the sport yet rumours of his inevitable invitation have been circling for many years now.

The WWE Hall of Fame was first conceived over two decades ago and over 100 of the biggest names in professional wrestling past and present have been inducted into it since 1993.

This year's chosen inductees will have their names added to such an illustrious list prior to Wrestlemania XXX.

WWE, fans what do you think of the latest induction? Does Colon deserve a place? Can you think of anyone who has not yet been inducted into the HoF who deserves it? Let us know below...
