• Dudley Boyz To Be Inducted Into The WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2018
CBS Sports has announced that The Dudley Boyz will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2018. The only other inductee announced as of now is Goldberg.
Below is what CBS Sports posted:
“With 18 championship reigns, it wouldn’t be a stretch to call The Dudley Boyz the most decorated tag team in the history of professional wrestling. Beginning in April, you can also call them WWE Hall of Famers.
Bubba Ray and D-Von Dudley will join Goldberg as inductees to the 2018 class of the WWE Hall of Fame at WrestleMania 34 weekend, CBS Sports has learned. The ceremony will take place Friday, April 6 at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.
The duo, which first joined forces with ECW in 1996 and retired as a team in 2016 following a reunion back in WWE, will enter the Hall of Fame with a multi-faceted legacy built just as much upon longevity and consistency as their reputation for being extreme.”
• Coach Returning To WWE, Joins Raw Announce Team Tonight
Below is what WWE announced:
“Ladies and gentlemen, “The Coach” has returned.
Jonathan Coachman, a longtime WWE interviewer and broadcaster and former ESPN personality, has signed with WWE to once again be part of the Raw announce team, WWE.com can confirm.
Coachman’s TV announcing duties will officially begin tonight, when he joins Michael Cole and Corey Graves at the Team Red announce desk.
Meanwhile, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T will resume his duties as a panelist on WWE’s pay-per-view Kickoff broadcasts and will continue to make appearances on Raw and beyond as a WWE ambassador.
The Coach began appearing on WWE television as an interviewer in 1999 during The Attitude Era as a frequent foil of The Rock, later expanding his role to include tenures as Raw commentator, Interim Raw General Manager and even as an in-ring competitor on multiple occasions.
Following nearly a decade as an on-air personality at ESPN — which included coverage of WWE with his “Off the Top Rope” segment — Coachman is back to call the action on Monday Night Raw.
Don’t miss The Coach’s return to Raw commentary tonight, beginning live at 8/7 C on USA Network.”
