It has been confirmed that Ricky Steamboat will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. It is rumored that he will be inducted by Ric Flair.

Steamboat and Ted DiBiase got a lot of votes for last year’s internal election regarding the WWE Hall of Fame. Vince McMahon takes the candidates with the most votes under consideration but makes all the picks in the end. The two wrestling legends weren’t snubbed last year, but Vince knows he can’t put all the best candidates in at once, so they are spread out over years.
