Rumor Roundup Special Spoiler Edition: Surprise appearance on WWE Raw tonight (Mar. 16, 2015), update on Hall of Fame

Mike Johnson over at PWInsider is reporting a couple of news items concerning tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw -  and they seem big enough to risk escalating my feud with Randall Ortman by co-opting his column title.

These constitute spoilers, with one especially possibly ruining a "mark out" moment, so last warning...






First, THE VIGILANTE Sting is in Des Moines and is set to appear on tonight's 8PM Eastern time broadcast on USA Network.  This would be his first live appearance since challenging Triple H at the Fastlane pay-per-view (PPV) and would follow-up his pre-taped promo from last week.

His match with The Game at WrestleMania is currently without any stipulation, so perhaps something could be added tonight?

Next up, there will undoubtedly be a Hall of Fame announcement tonight - as is hyping a "former champion" joining Randy Savage, Alundra Blayze, The Bushwhackers and Rikishi tonight.  However, while Kevin Nash is definitely expected to go in, Johnson is reporting that that announcement will be saved for next week's episode, which would be the "go home" show for WrestleMania 31.

According to the PWInsider report, tonight's inductee will be either Larry Zbyszko or Tatsumi Fujinami.

I can't recall WWE waiting until the last minute to announce a big name like Nash for any previous class, but this year has been a little different considering that (regardless of how they try to sell it) the biggest name belongs to a posthumous induction.  Officials and the former Diesel may also want to put as much space between the announcement and Nash's public family legal issues of late last year.

Excited for these things to happen tonight on Raw?  Confident that they're both locks?  Anything you'd like to see the Stinger do if he is on the show?
