The company's longstanding plan is to have the Rock headline the event which will be held before Wrestlemania 31.
Dave Meltzer said after Wrestlemania 30: "I don't think they'll do anything with Hogan next year because the goal next year is..., of course it's up to him, but it's always been for Dwayne Johnson for next year"
The Rock is viewed as one of the best wrestlers of all time as a 17-time champion and perhaps the most popular wrestler of recent pro-wrestling.
Rikishi could join the People's Champion in the hall next year. The 425lb Samoan American wrestler was a one time Intercontinental Champion in WWE as well as a number of tag-team honors.
Any announcements on the Hall of Fame will not be made until closer to the event. However, if these rumors are to believed, it looks as if this class could be among the best ever.
