On tonight’s WWE Backstage it was revealed JBL will be inducted into this year’s WWE Hall of Fame in Tampa during WrestleMania weekend. JBL was in-studio after the news broke. Debuting back in 1992, JBL retired in 2009, and was a one-time WWE Champion.
Last month, Wrestling Inc. first exclusively reported that JBL would be headed into the Hall of Fame.
On Backstage, JBL attributed a lot of his success to Eddie Guerrero and Ron Simmons. John Cena also sent in a video message congratulating JBL about his induction, which you can see in the clips below.
Others officially announced for this year’s Hall of Fame: Batista, nWo (Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Sean Waltman), and The Bella Twins. The ceremony takes place on April 2 at Amaile Arena and will air live on the WWE Network.
