First reported by Fightful and confirmed by Dave Meltzer on Wednesday's Wrestling Observer Radio, Rob Van Dam will soon be announced as an inductee into the 2021 WWE Hall of Fame class.

The 50-year-old rose to prominence in ECW before signing with WWE in 2001 as part of an ECW faction that was part of the WCW invasion angle. He spent the better part of the next six years in the company, winning the WWE Championship once, the Intercontinental title six times, the Hardcore title four times, the World Tag Team titles twice, the WWE Tag Team titles once, the European title once, and the revived ECW title once.

He is the fifteenth triple crown champion and seventh grand slam champion in WWE history.

He returned for a short run in 2013 before returning to the indies and an eventual second run in Impact Wrestling that ended last year. Van Dam held both the TV title and Tag Team titles in the original ECW and also is a former Impact World champion and X-Division champion.

He joins a class that includes Molly Holly, Eric Bischoff, Kane and The Great Khali. They will be inducted in a pre-taped ceremony that will air on Tuesday, April 6th, during WrestleMania week on WWE Network and Peacock. The 2020 class (the nWo, The Bellas, JBL, Davey Boy Smith, Jushin Thunder Liger) will also be inducted this year as last year's ceremony was canceled due to the pandemic.
