90.  Domenic DeNucci

Most people are familiar with Domenic DeNucci as the trainer of the Hardcore legend Mick Foley and “The Franchise” Shane Douglas, but it is often forgotten that DeNucci was an accomplished grappler and a Tag Team star in the 70’s.

With the ability to speak four languages, DeNucci was able to work internationally with ease, and his hard work ethic translated his skills before he ever cut a promo.  As a staple for the WWF in the 70’s, DeNucci was a star as well as a mentor to the younger grapplers.  Domenic was never destined to be on the top of the card but the card was always better with him on it.

Should Domenic DeNucci be in the Hall of Fame?

Definitely put him in! - 50%
Maybe, but others deserve it first. - 21.4%
Probably not, but it wouldn't be the end of the world. - 17.9%
No opinion. - 3.6%
No way! - 7.1%
