289. Dan Severn
I think that we can all agree that the WWE totally dropped the ball with Dan “The Beast” Severn.

They had a bona fide MMA superstar in their mix and though he wasn’t used well, he was successful in UWFI and in the NWA, a place where he was a two time champion.  Severn may not have been a major force in the WWE but he helped change the landscape of the WWE with his realistic fighting style.  He had more impact than you realize.

The Bullet Points

  • Billed From: U.S.A. (Coldwater, MI)
  • Key Championships Held: NWA World Heavyweight (2)
  • Why they will get in: In terms of MMA fighters with pro wrestling experience, there are few that can touch Severn.
  • Why they won't get in: The WWE really dropped the ball with the Beast.
  • Five Greatest Matches/Moments:
    1. Loses to Nobuhiku Takada in UWFI (4/10/93)
    2. Defeated Chris Candido for the NWA World Heavyweight Title (2/24/95)
    3. Teamed with Antonio Inoki to beat Oleg Taktarov and Yoshiaki Fujiwara in the main event of the World Wrestling Peace Festival (6/1/96)
    4. Defeated Ken Shamrock and Owen Hart in a three-way match (8/17/98)
    5. Beat Shinya Hashimoto to regain the NWA World Heavyweight Title (3/9/02)
