Conscious of it or not, in the last few years WWE has done an admirable job of inducting individuals who are truly deserving of hall of fame status.
Of the last three classes, legends like Ted Dibiase, Gorgeous George, Shawn Michaels and Edge have gotten their just due.
Even when taking into account those who have been inducted into the celebrity wing, the only one who seems like he might not have deserved the distinction is Drew Carey.
As star power-laden as past ceremonies have been, though, the 2013 rendition may be the most star-studded yet.
That is, the WWE Hall of Fame may finally recognize two legacies that not only defined each other, but the 1987-1992 era of the World Wrestling Federation.
Besides Hulk Hogan, there were two other men who were responsible for taking the company to great heights—Randy "Macho Man" Savage and the Ultimate Warrior.
The two are former world champions and, during 1988 and 1990, respectively, were the top dogs of the company.
And like the headliners who came before and after them, they often brought the best out of each other as rivals.
While it's too soon to say if Warrior and the deceased Savage will both be honored, WWE is strongly considering them.
