WWE has today officially announced Bill Goldberg’s inductor into this year’s WWE Hall Of Fame, Class of 2018, which he is set to headline.
The honor will be given to none other than Paul Heyman, who has worked against Goldberg alongside Brock Lesnar, most notably at last year’s WWE WrestleMania event in Orlando.
Heyman has always made his respect for Goldberg very clear, even during the promos that took place during that feud, making him a smart selection to induct Goldberg.
Given Paul Heyman’s huge popularity amongst wrestling fans and his superb ability on the microphone, it is likely going to be one of the best speeches of the night.
WWE has been revealing several inductors this week, with Edge and Christian being announced for the Dudley Boyz, and Molly Holly for Ivory.
WWE.com stated the following:
Heyman had a bird’s eye view of the type of carnage Goldberg could create inside the ring when he returned in 2016 to challenge Lesnar to a Mega Match at Survivor Series in Toronto. He was stunned when Goldberg bulldozed through The Beast in under two minutes to win his first match in 12 years. Heyman also witnessed the demolition derby for the Universal Championship between Goldberg and his client on The Grandest Stage of Them All at WrestleMania 33 last year. Though Goldberg was not victorious on that night, he certainly made a major impression on Lesnar and his advocate.
Heyman is never one to pull any punches or mince words. What will he have to say when he presents Goldberg to the WWE Universe to receive sports-entertainment’s highest honor? Find out during the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, streaming live on WWE Network Friday, April 6, at 8 ET/5 PT!
