Mick Foley will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on April, 6 at Madison Square Garden according to a report published today by the New York Post.

The announcement which is expected to be made official during Monday's 20th anniversary of Raw comes amid much speculation that the hardcore legend will be inducted a stones throw from his home in Long Island where he debuted in 1986.

Foley recently had the following to say on the rumors:

"It would mean that the rumors that I started spreading about it were effective. It would be a huge honor, especially in Madison Square Garden. WWE does a great job of trying to induct people in geographic areas that mean something to them. For me, being inducted in an arena that I specifically used to hitchhike to and take trains alone to would be a great honor." Phone Post

Agreed. Especially since Michael Hayes has worked for them for years now!

At the very least I would say Michael, Terry, and Buddy but I guess you could make a case for the others. I'm not quite old enough to know all about the history of the Freebirds so I don't know much about how big a part the others played?

I honestly think Vince has not put in the Freebirds as a rib on Hayes. I can't think of any logical reason they haven't been put in.

They were instrumental in the "Cool Heel" characters that became the big thing.

Usually the first named is the headline guy.  I was hoping Leaping Lanny would headline though.

YES! The Brooklyn Brawler finally gets his due.
