99. Shane Douglas
Although he was somewhat successful as a vanilla babyface in WCW in the early 90’s, few could have imagined that he was capable of becoming the acid tongued “Franchise” who would become one of the most arrogant heels in wrestling history.

In ECW, Shane Douglas found his voice, and what a voice it was.  He was encouraged to speak his mind, and found himself with promo abilities that matched his in ring work.  Douglas would return to the WWF as “Dean” Douglas playing off the fact that he was a former teacher.  The gimmick was a flop and he vocally expressed his time in the WWF to anyone who would listen.  Douglas may have been one of the all time greats in ECW, but his last run in WCW was average at best, and the way he is on very bad terms with the WWE.  When ECW has a proper entrant (we are not counting Terry Funk), iut likely won’t be the Franchise.

I'm surprised he hasn't blamed Ric Flair for not already being in the hall of fame.
