207. Killer Karl Kox
When looking at the career of “Killer” Karl Kox it seemed like he wrestled in every promotion in the States and won titles in every territory too.  That is a bit of an exaggeration, but not by much.

As a rulebreaker for the vast majority of his career, Kox did not just work at the top of the cards in America.  He was a decent wrestler who also competed successfully internationally in Japan and Australia; the latter of which he was a very big star.  Regardless of where he went, Karl Kox successfully helped each region on the card.  Behind the scenes, Kox was known for his fun demeanor and development of gimmick matches in the industry.  With that said, does a star of regional promotions who has largely been forgotten qualify as a Hall of Fame entry?

Should Killer Karl Kox be in the Hall of Fame?
