We've noted for months how there's been talk of The Fabulous Freebirds going into the WWE Hall of Fame this year in Dallas. It looks like the group will be going in but there's been a lot of talk about whether or not Jimmy Garvin will be going in with Michael "PS" Hayes, Buddy Roberts and Terry Gordy. Word is that Garvin will also be inducted, thanks to Hayes.

Another name rumored for this year's Hall of Fame class former WWE, WCW, NJPW, All Japan, AWA and NWA star Stan Hansen.

Former World Heavyweight Champion Vader indicated on Twitter a few weeks back that he may be inducted but we've heard nothing like that coming out of WWE.

One possible name who hasn't been reported is current announcer JBL. He's not a lock for this year's class but there are people within WWE who would not be surprised to see JBL inducted this year.

As noted, Sting will be this year's headliner.
