228. Val Venis
Yes we are suggesting the potential induction of a greasy porn star.  Sean Morley was already a very good wrestler and proved to be a natural in the ring, but when he debuted as the star of exotic pictures, Val Venis, he became an instant star in the WWE and was involved in many programs in the mid card.

Venis had size, ability, and the gift of gab, but he was forever derailed when he joined the Right to Censor and denounced his evil ways.  He would return to the porn star gimmick, but the momentum was lost and he would be dropped to near enhancement status, where he was still able to use his strong in ring ability to help get others over.  Had his character not been taken off track, we suspect that he would have a much greater chance than he currently has.

Should Val Venis be in the Hall of Fame?
