A couple of legends from Japan were in consideration for a hall of fame induction at Wrestlemania this year. WWE opted to go with Tatsumi Fujinami because of his connection with Ric Flair. Rumors have it that some in the front office wanted to wait on inducting Masahiro Chono. They feel that it would be best to include him in the same class as when they induct Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash again. Chono was an nWo member.

Another name has surfaced for an induction into the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony at Wrestlemania this year. Masahiro Chono is considered a candidate for the role. Management has been wanting a legend from Japan to be included in this class, and several names, including Tatsumi Fujinami and Genichiro Tenryu, have surfaced. Chono might have an advantage since he already has a merchandise agreement with the company.
