The WWE Hall of Fame, established in March of 1993, is the home to the greatest, most memorable professional wrestlers to have ever stepped inside the squared circle. In 2004, after an eight-year hiatus, the induction ceremony returned to coincide with Wrestlemania XX, and have continued annually ever since. Each year, the WWE selects a group of former sports entertainers worthy of the achievement, and the Class of 2018 will be main-evented by none other than Goldberg.

Here are the highlights from the previous Hall of Fame headliners, starting with 1993 and working its way up to present day.
