News on Potential 2018 WWE Hall of Fame Candidates

— As we reported yesterday, Dave Bautista is interested in returning to WWE for a final run. As well, his name has been mentioned for the 2018 Hall of Fame, but if he’s coming back or likely to return, his induction will surely be pushed back to a future year. The current names for the Hall – which were noted a couple weeks ago – are The Dudleys, Bam Bam Bigelow, Kid Rock, Ivory and the headliner, Bill Goldberg.

— There are some in the company who are pushing for Jim Johnston – the music composer – to be inducted in the Hall of Fame, given his impact and important on the iconic nature of some of the entrance themes, but with him just being gone this year due to politics, that would make it unlikely he is inducted in 2018.
