The WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony is tonight, and early on during the show, the 2020 class of Hall of Fame Legacy inductees were announced.
The group, which consists of Ray “The Crippler” Steves, Brickhouse Brown, “Dr. Death” Steve Williams, Baron Michele Leone, and Gary Hart, is a legendary crop of some of the most prestigious and groundbreaking superstars of their time. Stevens is a former WWWF United States Heavyweight Champion and was inducted into the NWA Hall of Fame in 2013. Brown was a staple of many southern promotions in the 80s and 90s. Williams, a former football player at Oklahoma, won the Triple Crown Heavyweight Championship in Japan and had a WWF run later in his career. Leone is one of the most famous Italian wrestlers and helped get pro wrestling’s first $100,000 gate alongside Lou Thesz.
Finally, Gary Hart, who was inducted into the NWA Hall of Fame in 2016, was one of the most highly regarded wrestling managers and a top heel in World Class Championship Wrestling.
