Joining Goldberg in this year's class, The Dudley Boyz will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame over WrestleMania weekend in New Orleans.

WWE made the announcement via CBS Sports today. It comes after Bubba Ray & D-Von appeared on Raw's 25th anniversary episode last Monday, where they put Heath Slater through a table.

In their interview with CBS Sports, Bubba Ray spoke about being the first ECW-created act to go into the Hall of Fame: "It probably means more to me than anything else. Yes, going into the WWE Hall of Fame is cool, but being the first original act ever created in ECW is really a big deal. ECW meant so much to us and it meant so much to wrestling fans. To me, it's a great honor to represent a company that revolutionized and changed the wrestling business."

After The Dudleyz' last WWE stint came to an end in the summer of 2016, D-Von began working in a backstage role with WWE and Bubba Ray started his current run with Ring of Honor.

The Dudleyz had been expected to enter the Hall of Fame this year and were included on a list of inductees that freelance journalist Brad Shepard tweeted last month.

The 2018 Hall of Fame ceremony will take place at the Smoothie King Center on Friday, April 6th.
