World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) recently released the name of its latest inductee into the Hall of Fame class of 2016. Jacqueline Moore of Dallas Texas will become the eighth female wrestler to be inducted by WWE into is HOF. The ceremony will occur in April this year on the eve of WrestleMania 32.
Jacqueline is considered to be one of the toughest female wrestlers to ever step into the WWE ring. She has won the WWE women’s championship twice and has surprisingly defeated a male wrestler Chavo Guerrero to become a one-time WWE cruiserweight champion.
Despite naming her as an inductee into its HOF class of 2016, WWE did not showcase its video package of Jacqueline on live television. This seems strange considering that the company always dedicates an audio-visual package to its HOF inductees.
However, the video was released by the company on its official YouTube channel.

“I was so overjoyed. It’s a great honor, it’s the highest honor to receive in WWE, and to be in my home town…it means so much to me.“ Jacqueline said to FOX Sports.
The 52-year-old started her career in Dallas, Texas where she trained with Skandor Akbar. She went on to gain experience of the industry in the Tennessee territory before heading on to the bigger stages.
Jacqueline also stated that she cherished her time while working out matches against Molly Holly. Among the recent WWE Divas, it’s Naomi who reminds her of herself. She also considers Sasha Banks as a tough competitor and credits the talent of the current roster to the company’s trainers.
