Another WWE Hall Of Fame 2017 Inductee Revealed

It appears that the WWE Hall of Fame is about to get a little more ravishing. 

Reports are circling today that "Ravishing" Rick Rude is to be announced as the next inductee into this year's Hall of Fame class, which so far includes the likes of "Diamond" Dallas Page

Rude is a former Intercontinental Champion, United States Champion, and WCW International World Heavyweight Champion, but what he's most remembered for is his macho ladies man gimmick that paved the way for the likes of Val Venis and other characters of the same vein.

He is also remembered as the only person to be on WCW Monday Night Nitro and Monday Night Raw the same night. Raw was prerecorded and showed up live on Nitro. It was pretty mindblowing for its time. Having to retire in 1994 after a match against Sting, Rude found new life as a founding member of the original D-Generation X stable along with Shawn Michaels, Triple H, and Chyna. 

Though he passed away in 1999, he left an impression on the industry as one of the most stellar physical specimens and mic workers of his generation.
