42. Joe Stecher
Having the distinction of being the first man to regain the first recognized version of the World Heavyweight Championship, Joe Stecher also was one of the youngest, winning his first of three world titles at the age of 22.  Stecher, who was always in the shadow of Frank Gotch, never had the dream match with the retired former champion but did have classics with Ed “Strangler” Lewis and certainly fits the category for the new direction of the WWE Hall of Fame.

The Bullet Points

  • Billed From: U.S.A. (Dodge, Nebraska)
  • Key Championships Held: World Heavyweight (3)
  • Why they will get in: If the WWE Hall of Fame is serious about this new wing, Stecher is an excellent candidate.
  • Why they won't get in: How do we know that the WWE HOF will continue this path?
  • Five Greatest Matches/Moments: 1.   Defeated Charlie Cutler to win his first championship (7/14/15)
    2.   Wrestled Ed Lewis to a two hour draw (10/4/15)
    3.   Wrestled Ed Lewis to a five and half hour draw (7/4/16)
    4.   Defeated Earl Caddock for the World Heavyweight Championship (1/30/20)
    5.   Beat Stanislaus Zbyszko for his third World Title  (5/30/25)
