344. Bert Assirati
The greatest wrestler from England in the first half of the 20th century, Bert Assirati was the largest box office draw in the United Kingdom and perhaps one of the best.  Assairati was a legitimate strongman and a major domino in the history of British wrestling but his failure to even crack the American mid-card works largely against him.  Still, the legendary strength, viciousness and tolerance for pain is the one of wrestling legend.

The Bullet Points

  • Billed From: England
  • Key Championships Held: British Wrestling Association
    World Heavyweight (European Version)
    European Heavyweight (2)
    British Wrestling Federation
  • Why they will get in: Is the WWE Hall of Fame serious about an international and historical scope? This fits them both.
  • Why they won't get in: Most English wrestling fans do not know who Assirati is.
  • Five Greatest Matches/Moments: 1.  Won the British Wrestling Association Title (1/27/45)
    2.  Won a tournament final over Yvar Martinsen to win the European Championship (2/18/47)
    3.  Regained the European Title, this time by beating Felix Miquet (1949)
    4.  Defeated Ernie Baldwin for the vacant British Wrestling Federation Title (1955)
    5.  Named to the Inaugural Class of the Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame (1996)

Should Bert Assirati be in the Hall of Fame?

Definitely put him in! - 30%
Maybe, but others deserve it first. - 30%
Probably not, but it wouldn't be the end of the world. - 10%
No opinion. - 10%
No way! - 20%
