Earlier today WWE.com broke the news that Ray Traylor, the Big Boss Man, will be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame by his longtime manager Slick.
Here is the announcement posted by WWE:
On the eve of WrestleMania 32, Big Boss Man will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by the manager who brought him into WWE, Slick.
It was The Doctor of Style who first introduced Big Boss Man to the WWE Universe in 1988, helping the former corrections officer from Cobb County, Ga. bring his painful brand of justice to the squared circle. Slick often distracted officials while Big Boss Man cuffed his opponents to the rope and bashed them with his ever-present nightstick.
Slick also paired Boss Man with one of his other charges, Akeem, forming one of the most monstrous teams in WWE history, The Twin Towers. Their partnership fractured in 1990, when Slick tried to sell the Big Boss Man’s services to another Hall of Famer, The Million Dollar Man. Now, Slick will honor his former charge as he takes his place in history.

Ski’s Take – To me, Slick would be the logical choice to induct the Big Boss Man. As the statement above says, it was Slick that brought him to the WWE and it’s fitting that he now inducts him.
And on a lighter note, I’m sure I’m not the only one that hopes that Slick talks in jive for at least a portion of the induction. If he does, I’m sure it will go down with Mr T’s as one of the more famous speeches.
