Rod BrindAmour
An intense workout machine whose gym work likely granted him twenty NHL seasons, Rod Brind’Amour was not just a physical anomaly, but one hell of a hockey player.


Although Brind’Amour showcased offensive prowess (1,184 career points) it was his defensive skills that opponents feared. As one of the top shut down centers in hockey, Brind’Amour twice won the Selke Trophy for the league’s best Defensive Forward.

    40.  Tatsumi Fujinami
    Does the induction of Antonio Inoki pave the way for other past stars of New Japan?  If it does, the next logical choice would have to be Tatsumi Fujinami who held their version of the World Heavyweight Championship on six different occasions. Incidentally, Fujinami’s first taste of success happened in the WWF.  He won the Junior Heavyweight Title and defended…
