390. Tracy Smothers
Tracy Smothers was a southern wrestler through and through but while that was what he was best at, he was a capable talker and brawler and better than he got credit for as an overall in-ring performer.  Smothers first gained national attention as one half of the Southern Boys with Steve Armstrong, but his best work took place in Smoky Mountain Wrestling where he was their champion and a main event talent.  He would later entertain fans in ECW where he embraced his inner "Italian roots."   It is, however, hard to induct someone who competed in the WWE as Freddie Joe Floyd.
