With the Hall of Fame Class of 2014 set in stone, the speculation for the 2015 ceremony has begun before the 2014 event has even taken place. Some of the speculated names for next year include Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and New World Order originals Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Hulk Hogan as a trio.

Hall will go into the Hall by himself on April 5 at the New Orleans Arena on the eve ofWrestleMania XXX under the “Razor Ramon” moniker he used in the WWE in the early-mid 1990s. The fact that he’s going in as Ramon when he is more well-known from his nWo days as Scott Hall in WCW, has led many to speculate that he may be inducted twice.
Since Hogan is already in the Hall of Fame and Hall is going in as Ramon, it’s possible that the WWE is planning on having the pair, along with Nash, go into the Hall of Fame as the nWo. According to Wrestlingheadlines.com, it has also been widely speculated that The Rock will be enshrined into the Hall of Fame next year on the night before WrestleMania 31 in California, however nothing is set in stone.
It has been speculated that The Rock may be the headlining candidate next year and that the nWo may not want to play second fiddle to “The Great One.” If that is the case, and this is only speculation, the WWE could very well induct Kevin Nash under his WWE “Diesel” moniker by himself next year and have the trio go in as headliners the following year.
While The Rock is likely going in next year, the report indicates that just because Hall is going in under his Razor Ramon name, it doesn’t mean that the WWE is considering the nWo for next year as there have been no reports as to who the WWE will be inducting next year besides the rumors about The Rock.
Another name that has come up is the late Owen Hart, who died tragically when he fell to his death from the rafters at the Kemper Arena in Kansas City at the Over the Edgepay-per-view in May of 1999. Owen’s real-life brother Bret Hart said he believes that if Owen’s widow Martha could end her grudge with the WWE, perhaps Owen will go in next year.
