Former AWA star Ray Stevens, the long-time tag team partner of Pat Patterson, is scheduled to be inducted into the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame.

He will be inducted by Patterson, who for years has lobbied for Stevens inclusion in the WWE Hall of Fame. The timing and location seemed ideal this year given Stevens’ long-time connection to the greater San Francisco area. For several years Stevens was a major star for Roy Shires as well as the AWA. WWE is expected to make the official announcement in February.
