By RACHEL MARTIN | FOX NEWS WASHINGTON — The WWE is still reeling from the death of Vince McMahon in October, but in the midst of a busy summer of live events, the company has made some big announcements regarding its future superstars.WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at the 2017 Hall of Presidents ceremony on June 12.
He died two days later at age 84.
The WWE announced McMahon’s passing on Tuesday, but did not name him as the next inductee.
McMahon was known for his deep and wide-ranging involvement in the business and his impact on pro wrestling.
In 2016, WWE began promoting the “Million-Dollar Man” storyline, which involved McMahon getting paid to get over a feud with his son, Bray Wyatt.
Wyatt, now known as Bray Wyatt, wrestled for WWE in his prime and won two WWE World Heavyweight Championships in the process.
The storyline was a hit, but the WWE was never able to pull off a major deal.
After Wyatt left WWE, he was inductated into the Hall of Famers in 2018.
He won two titles with the company, the most of any wrestler in WWE history.
The Hall of Famer is known for having an uncanny knack for finding the right moments to deliver a great promo.
McMahon also worked for the WWE during its run in the late 1990s and early 2000s, helping to make the company a worldwide juggernaut and establishing it as a juggernaut of a company.
He was also a pioneer of the brand of pro wrestling, which is a sport in which wrestlers wrestle in front of an audience of thousands of people, usually at a large arena.
McLahon’s son, Dean, is also a WWE Hall-of-Famer, as are three current Hall-Of-Fam inductees: AJ Styles, Samoa Joe and Rusev.
