WWE Hall of Fame 2014 [VIDEO]: Ultimate Warrior picks Linda McMahon to induct him into HOF in New Orleans on eve of WrestleMania 30
WWE legend The Ultimate Warrior will be inducted into the WWE's Hall of Fame at the New Orleans Arena on April 5 on the eve of WrestleMania XXX, and the former WWE Champion took to his official Twitter account to officially reveal that WWE CEO Vince McMahon's wife Linda McMahon will be the person to induct The Warrior into the Hall of Fame.
"Fortunetelling pundits lack the integrity it takes to figure me out. I'm honored @Linda_McMahon accepts my request to introduce #wwehof2014," Warrior tweeted on Monday.
The Ultimate Warrior then sent out another tweet to clarify that along with introducing him, McMahon will be inducting him for his followers that got confused.
"For all the Medicinal Marijuana users & ADD crowd w/ half-ass functioning brains: Introduce=Induct. One more time. Induct=Introduce. Got it?" he tweeted.
As is customary, the WWE will hold its annual Hall of Fame ceremony on the eve of WrestleMania XXX to honor their past legends before going live with the biggest show of the year the following night from what promises to be a jam-packed Mercedes-Benz Superdome on April 6.
Inductees into the Hall of Fame usually are given the right to select who they want to introduce them to the crowd, and it would appear as though The Warrior has chosen McMahon. McMahon will give a speech reflecting on his career and then introduce The Warrior.
The Ultimate Warrior, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Lita and Paul Bearer have been announced as members of the Class of 2014 for the WWE Hall of Fame while Scott "Razor Ramon" Hall and Stacy Keibler have been rumored for the event, but nothing is official yet.

In conjunction with the Hall of Fame induction, the Class of 2014 will also be introduced to the crowd during the WrestleMania show the following night, as is tradition.
The Ultimate Warrior is a one-time WWE Champion after defeating Hulk Hogan in the famous title-for-title main event at WrestleMania VI in 1990, and is a former two-time Intercontinental Champion as well.
After years of bad blood between The Warrior and the WWE, the hatchet will finally officially be buried when The Warrior becomes a member of the Class of 2014 Hall of Fame.
