This is the official thread about the 2009 Hall of Fame inductions.

We can talk about the wrestlers that are being inducted and sorts, when someone new is announced we post it here.

Stone Cold as already been announced, I think the WWE didn't want to announce it that early, but someone put a picture of it on the front page of their website.

I also heard that Ricky Steamboat is getting inducted this year? Is that true?

Bill Watts is in and Steamboat should be announced here shortly. This is an awesome list so far with Austin and Steamboat. Be interested to see who else gets in.

The Rock and Ted DiBiase Sr seem like sure bets but probably not until 2010.

Yeah i heard Ricky Steamboat is getting inducted by Ric Flair. So if that's true then Austin's request has obviously been denied.

Rumour going round that Bret Hart might actually do the honour of inducting Austin. Probably not much basis behind it though.

Hart inducting Austin would be awesome...either him or Vince McMahon. They both played huge roles in his career.

Another big name being inducted this year, and a very very deserving name: Terry Funk!

I think there's only one person who should induct him, and that should be Mick Foley.

Well Unfortunately for Foley he'll be unable to induct the Funkster since he's employed by TNA. That my friends, sucks.

Ah shitballs, that completely slipped my mind. For some reason it just won't seem right anyone else doing it! :-/

Terry Funk really deserves it, and he probably wants Foley to induct him, and Foley probably wants to be the one to do it because he's his idol. Should be interesting to see who inducts him.

Foley should quit TNA so that they can do this haha...otherwise I guess Tommy Dreamer could do it. Or RVD or someone like that.

Yeah, i'm sure it'll be somebody who had a history with ECW either way. I wouldn't mind seeing Dreamer or RVD do it.

Though i'd much rather see Foley quit TNA to do it :p

As for the other additions into the Hall of Fame so far

The Von Erich family, as a group, will be inducted into the 2009 WWE Hall of Fame class during Wrestlemania weekend in Houston, Texas.

Kevin Von Erich and his children will be on hand to accept the honor. I have heard, but cannot confirm, that Michael Hayes, the leader of the Von Erich's greatest adversaries, The Fabulous Freebirds, will be handling the induction.

The Von Erichs join a class featuring Steve Austin, Bill Watts, Ricky Steamboat, Terry Funk and Dory Funk Jr. There is expected to be one additional induction into the Hall as well.
I don't personally remember the Von Erich family, but i have heard the name thrown around a lot as a legendary wrestling family. And again i've only heard the name Bill Watts thrown around as being a hugely influential booker/promoter.

It does seem like a pretty elite list this year though.
