98.  Dino Bravo

His later years in the WWE saw Dino Bravo rely on his overwhelming strength.  As such he was a plodding grappler, but to those who saw Bravo prior to his final years in the ring, saw an underrated performer who could deliver a very well rounded match.

Dino Bravo was a consistent star in his native Quebec, and successfully ventured outside of the beautiful province.  Bravo had his most successful runs for Vince, and as such could be considered a possibility for the Hall.  Unfortunately, his death at the hands of a gangland style shooting due to his alleged ties to the mafia may just result in Dino Bravo being a story worth avoiding.

Should Dino Bravo be in the Hall of Fame?
