280. Buck Robley
Buck Robley did not get a lot of the credit he deserved until he passed away, but one of the great minds of the wrestling business was owned by Buck Robley. The “Colonel” perfected the art of the Cowardly heel, and his “Don’t call me yellow” shtick never got old. Had the tail end of his career got seen in a major promotion, his name would have been much bigger.

Where he worked doesn't change what he did for
industry or the careers of many of the people in
industry. There's a lot more to the business than
winning matches. I say 1000% Yes he should be
Inducted.
