Stan Hansen To Be Inducted Into WWE Hall of Fame

WWE have confirmed Stan Hansen as the latest inductee into the 2016 WWE Hall of Fame.

Another Texas native, Hansen’s career started following a football career at the West Texas State University, quickly making a name for himself as a ferocious fighter who was determined to do nothing more than beat and bruise his way to the top.

Upon signing with the WWWF in 1976, Hansen set his sights on the then-World champion Bruno Sammartino, leading to a famous angle when he was purported to have broken Sammartino’s neck. When the champion returned, he defeated Hansen in a heated revenge brawl at Shea Stadium, leading to Hansen leaving the company and plying his trade in Japan. It was during the Sammartino feud that Hansen’s powerful clothesline, the Lariat, became his feared finisher. It would later be used as inspiration for JBL’s Clothesline from Hell.

While in Japan, Hansen achieved victories over names like Giant Baba and Antonio Inoki, before returning to the US and become AWA World champion. He would also later win the WCW United States champion, defeating Lex Luger.

He spent the last decade of his career wrestling exclusively in Japan, where he would retire a decorated champion and legend.

It has not yet been announced who will induct Hansen.
