290. Miguel Perez
Many of the people reading this might think of Miguel Perez as a member of Los Boricuas, Savio Vega’s militant Puerto Rican group from the Attitude Era. While Miguel Perez Jr. was a very good wrestler who probably deserved a better opportunity in the United States than he did get, but he was the son of a major star form decades previous.

The Puerto Rican was a stalwart in New York for many years, winning tag team championships there and performing often for the WWWF at Madison Square Garden multiple times. Perez was a large part of drawing Hispanic fans to wrestling’s Mecca and with the WWE looking to expand that demographic, it is possible to see them induct someone like Perez.

The Bullet Points

  • Billed From: San Juan, Puerto Rico
  • Key Championships Held: NWA World Tag Team (Capitol) w/Antonino Rocca
    WWC North American Tag Team (3) 2w/Antonino Rocca & 1w/Carlos Colon
    WWC Puerto Rico Heavyweight (4)
  • Why they will get in: The WWE does want to tap more into the Hispanic market. Hispanic wrestling history would not hurt.
  • Why they won't get in: When you have to mention which “Miguel Perez” it is it does not help his chances.
  • Five Greatest Matches/Moments: 1. With Antonino Rocca, won the NWA Capitol Tag Team Championship (3/30/57)
    2. With Pedro Morales, defeated the Fabulous Kangaroos in a 2 out of 3 Falls Match at MSG. (11/18/63)
    3. With Haystacks Calhoun, defeated Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Davis at MSG (11/16/64)
    4. Was awarded the first WWC Puerto Rican Heavyweight Championship (1/6/74)
    5. With Rocca, won the first of two WWC Tag Team Championships (9/11/76)
