‘Ravishing’ Rick Rude Will Be Inducted Into The WWE Hall Of Fame This Year
— WWE (@WWE) March 6, 2017
This one can be filed in the ‘long overdue’ department, but slow motion is better than no motion. Rick Rude was a staple of WCW and the then WWF in the late 80s and early 90s, and solidified the mid card division for both companies. He’s a former Intercontinental and US Heavyweight champion, and perfected the arrogant, cocky heel persona. He made it easy for you to hate him, which always made the good guys he squared off against such as Jake Roberts and the Ultimate Warrior that much easier to root for. Rude will be inducted by fellow Hall of Famer Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat.
