It's reported that two new inductees for the WWE Hall of Fame have been announced. In addition to former WWE Women's Champion Molly Holly, the pioneer of the 'Monday Night War' and former WCW Executive Eric Bischoff & former WWE Intercontinental Champion 'The British Bulldog' Davey Boy Smith have finally received the nod from the WWE for its Hall of Fame.

Bischoff was instrumental in bringing WCW out of near financial ruin and reinvented the brand in the early to mid 1990s, creating WCW Monday Nitro, as a viable competitor to the WWE's flagship show Monday Night RAW. He was also a key player in groundbreaking storylines like the nWo and for the professional wrestling phenomenon that put WCW on the map of Bill Goldberg. Davey Boy Smith was one half of the famed 'British Bulldogs' and won tag team gold, with his former partner the late Dynamite Kid. Smith then branched out as a singles competitor and found huge success. He captured the WWE Intercontinental Championship from then champion Bret Hart at SummerSlam 1992 and is considered one of the greatest IC Title Matches of all time. These two were long overdue for an induction to the WWE Hall of Fame.

The WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony will take place on April 6th on NBC's Peacock Network and the WWE Network everywhere else.
