It is believed that The Wild Samoans will be announced for the Hall of Fame tomorrow night on Raw, while Jim Ross will be announced next week’s Raw on March 26. The Sheik announcement will have to be fit in somewhere during the next two weeks unless plans change.
As noted earlier, Bobby “The Brain” Heenan will induct Nick Bockwinkel into WWE’s hall of fame on 3/31. Steve Austin will induct Jim Ross. Samu will induct his father Wild Samoan Afa. Sika’s son Ro-Z (Rosey, now of All Japan) will induct his father. Don Muraco will induct his former manager, Mr. Fuji, into the WWE hall of fame on 3/31 as well. Fuji (real name Harry Fujiwara), 72, now works as a ticket taker at a Morristown, TN movie theater.
At this point, it appears the ceremony will not air on USA and will be broadcasted on WWE’s web site. WWE and USA are still in talks about having it air live or on tape delay though so this could change at any time. Stay tuned.
