As previously reported, WWE will be inducting Andy Kaufman into the Hall of fame this year. To date, a WWE referee has never been inducted into the Hall Of Fame, despite the fact that fans, wrestlers, and referees themselves pushing for the same to finally happen.
According to PWInsider Elite, there has been talk that a referee will finally be receiving the honor during this year’s WWE Hall Of Fame. While the name of the potential inductee was not disclosed, it was added that they are widely beloved in the business.
The inclusion of a referee is certainly a no-brainer, considering just how crucial referees have been in matches as well as many iconic storylines in WWE. They are also often highly respected individuals who are important in ensuring the safety of talent.
We will have to wait and see which referee will get this offer.
