WWE made the announcement on Twitter Monday alongside a photo of Aitchison with John Cena who was the first celebrity to grant 500 wishes for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

"Sue has dedicated her entire career to helping Wish kids fulfill their dreams and putting smiles on countless families' faces. Her heart and character epitomize the essence of the Warrior Award," WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon said in a statement.

"She is an unsung hero who deserves to be recognized and immortalized in the WWE Hall of Fame," she continued.

Dana Warrior, the widow of The Ultimate Warrior and a WWE Ambassador, will be presenting the award to Aitchison. "My husband saw Sue's efforts firsthand throughout his WWE career. She displays the Warrior spirit every single day and is an inspiration to us all," she said.
