The WWE Hall of Fame ceremony remains a highly anticipated event each year, drawing excitement from fans eager to see which wrestling legends will be honored with induction into the prestigious class. With several notable names already confirmed for this year’s event, WWE has recently unveiled another addition to the lineup.

As previously reported, Paul Heyman is set to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. This was immediately followed by Bull Nakano getting her long-awaited induction as well.

That was not all as The U.S. Express was announced and perhaps the biggest celebrity name of them all – Muhammad Ali. Thunderbolt Patterson’s induction into the WWE Hall of Fame has been confirmed by WWE, adding to the list of prestigious names set to be honored at the ceremony.

Patterson’s wrestling career began in 1964, primarily competing in territories such as Georgia and Florida. Despite facing challenges, including being blacklisted by the NWA for his advocacy against racism and efforts to organize wrestlers into a labor union, Patterson persevered.


Throughout his career, he achieved success, winning championships like the NWA Atlantic Coast Tag Team Championship and the NWA American Tag Team Championship, partnering with notable wrestlers such as Wahoo McDaniel, Ole Anderson, and Tony Atlas.

As WWE continues to unveil additional names for the Hall of Fame, fans can anticipate more announcements leading up to the ceremony, which is scheduled to take place following SmackDown on April 5th at the Wells Fargo Center during WrestleMania weekend.
