Shawn Michaels and Mick Foley are already icons of the professional wrestling business, and both men are WWE Hall of Famers. Next year Michaels and Foley will add another impressive achievement to their resumes, as they’re set to be inducted into the 2017 Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame class.
The inductees are voted in by a committee of their peers, and it was noted that this year returned the most ballots ever to be counted. The induction ceremony is set to take place on May 20, 2017 in Wichita Falls, TX. This will be the 16th annual induction ceremony, and names that were inducted as part of the 2016 class include Steve Austin, and Sgt. Slaughter.
