On Monday’s RAW, JBL introduced a new video package highlighting Sting’s career to make his Hall of Fame induction announcement official. It was first announced by WWE.com on Monday afternoon that Sting was the first inductee in the class of 2016.
This year’s WWE Hall of Fame ceremony takes place the day before WrestleMania 32, April 2nd, at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX. Tickets will go on sale Friday, January 15th at 10 AM ET/9 AM CT.
Don’t expect to see the Stinger step back into the ring any time soon though. In December, Sting revealed on Ric Flair’s podcast that he injured his neck during his match against Seth Rollins at Night of Champions and requires surgery.
