WWE.com: Larry Zbyszko Next Member of the 2015 Hall of Fame Class


WWE.com has announced that Larry Zbyszko would be part of the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame class.

Previously it was thought that either Kevin Nash or Ray Stevens would be in, but they have not been confirmed.

The 2015 WWE Hall of Fame class is announced as:

  • “Macho Man” Randy Savage (inducted by Hulk Hogan)
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger
  • Rikishi
  • The Bushwhackers (Luke & Butch)
  • Alundra Blayze (Madusa)

The Hall of Fame ceremony is scheduled for Saturday March 28, 2015, the night before WWE Wrestlemania 31 in California. It will air live on the WWE Network, then an edited one hour version will air on USA Network following Raw on March 30, 2015.

Here is WWE.com on the induction:
A true Living Legend in the sports-entertainment industry, Larry Zbyszko is the latest inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2015.

Zbyszko got his break in the ring game in 1973, studying under fellow Pittsburgh native and WWE Hall of Famer Bruno Sammartino. He broke into WWE in the mid-1970s, making a name for himself as part of a tag team with Tony Garea and capturing the World Tag Team Titles from the Yukon Lumberjacks.

…By 1992, he stepped away from the ring and went behind the microphone as a member of WCW’s broadcast team. Zbyszko greeted the WCW faithful with a hearty salute every week, doing his best to educate them on the “game of human chess,” and fill audiences in on his latest exploits on the golf course.

Zbyszko was not afraid to lace his boots up when provoked, though. After being pushed too far by William Regal in 1994, The Living Legend got back in the ring and showed he could still hang, defeating the snooty Brit for the WCW Television Championship. And when The New World Order invaded, Zbyszko was one of the first to step up to defend WCW. With a helping hand from Bret “Hit Man” Hart, Zbyszko defeated Eric Bischoff at Starrcade 1997 and saved Monday Nitro from falling into the outlaw group’s clutches.

Now, Zbyszko cements his status as a Living Legend in the sports-entertainment world, as he takes his place in the WWE Hall of Fame’s Class of 2015.
