WWE Hall of Fame 2013 possible inductees for WrestleMania 29 weekend

Class of 2013?

Back in July, we brought you the news former WWE Champion and professional wrestling legend Bruno Sammartino had turned down Triple H's offer to be the headlining inductee into WWE's Hall of Fame for the Class of 2013.

There were several reasons why Sammartino declined the invitation; from objections to WWE's product to blaming Vince McMahon for driving a wedge between him and his son.

Even if the record holding champion won't be a part of the festivities, that hasn't stopped WWE from laying down the groundwork for next year's ceremony.

According to PWInsider, there are already other names in the running for the promotion's highest honor.

Mick Foley seems to be the frontrunner as he hails from the New York area and has strong emotional ties to Madison Square Garden (MSG). Even though WrestleMania 29 won't be taking place in the Garden this year, the report indicates they would like at least some of their inductees to have some connection to the historic venue.

This is also why Kevin Nash's name is in the mix. As Diesel, Nash won his first WWE Championship at MSG defeating Bob Backlund - who himself is a candidate, as he has had many classic encounters in the building - in 1994, in only eight seconds.

The report also indicates Randy Savage may be a possibility. But then again, it was thought he was a shoe-in this year following his tragic death in 2011.

How about it, Cagesiders? Any other New York area former Superstars you can think of whom WWE can honor next April?
