Ron Simmons to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame

Ron Simmons has been selected for the 2012 WWE Hall of Fame class, and we are very happy with this selection.  Simmons wrestled mostly as "Faarooq" in the WWE, first leading the "Nation of Domination" faction in the late 90's and then spending the rest of his WWE tenure in a tag team with Bradshaw (who would later be known as JBL).  Prior to that, Simmons was the first African American World Heavyweight Champion in WCW and was a college football standout at Florida State.  Of note, this makes the third major post career accolade for Simmons as he is already in the College Football Hall of Fame (2008) and had his jersey retired by the Seminoles.  We congratulate Ron Simmons on this latest achievement in what has been a stellar career.
