The WWE has made it official: Jacqueline will join the WWE Hall of Fame as part of its Class of 2016.
The news, which was broken last week with the release of the WrestleMania 32 commemorative magazine, has now been officially confirmed by the WWE via FOX Sports.
Jacqueline spoke to FOX Sports about her induction, giving her thoughts on today’s Divas and her wrestling future.
She complimented Naomi and Sasha Banks, comparing Naomi to herself and Jazz:
“I think Naomi and Sasha Banks are pretty tough women. But there’s a lot of talent in WWE right now. Naomi kind of reminds me of me, or Jazz. There’s a lot of talented women. I think that’s because of the trainers.”
She also made it clear that she’s not officially retired from the ring, but is currently keeping herself busy with art projects:
“On the record, I’m not retired. I’m just not active right now. I keep busy. If push comes to shove, I can step in the ring right now. I might be rusty, but you don’t forget. It’s just in you, you don’t forget that… I’m keeping myself busy. I’m painting now, I do art paintings and drawings. That keeps me pretty busy.”

The WWE Hall of Fame ceremony takes place Saturday, April 2nd in Dallas, Texas and will air live on the WWE Network.
