Current WWE Inductees

As Divas exploded onto the WWE landscape; Amy Dumas looked a little different the others.  She wasn’t a Barbie Doll, but a relatable woman who exuded her own brand of sexuality with large tattoos, a high up thong and a style that was more indicative of what you would see in high schools.  This made…
During NIHOF committee meetings, it was extremely rare for us to agree unanimously on anything. We were initially in agreement that Bruno Sammartino had to be considered the most deserving man not yet in the WWE Hall of Fame.  Here we are, two years later, and Randy Savage has taken over the top slot, yet the…
Pedro Morales may be the most known wrestler from Puerto Rico, but we openly question if the people from Puerto Rico view Morales in the same high regard as they do Carlos Colon. Our bet is that Colon would get the nod.     Wrestling in American regional promotions, Colon saw the void in his…
We held back on ranking Booker T in our inaugural list as felt that despite being in his mid 40’s we thought the “spinaroonie” master had another run left in him in the WWE.  When he came back this year and returned to the WWE as a broadcaster, we felt it was time to list…
When Bob Backlund first hit the Northeast he had the credentials to be a wrestling star; he was a legitimate amateur champion, he had the boyish good looks and the humble demeanor that made him the perfect face. This equated to him holding the WWF World Heavyweight Championship for over five years.   As Backlund’s…
Scott Hall may be another name in the discussion of “best wrestler never to win a World Championship”, though few would have thought based on his first eight years in the business that he would be World Championship material. Scott Hall always had the look and the size, but when he created the gimmick of…
Trish Stratus may have started out in the WWE as just another pretty face, but that was certainly not how she left it. Although she did come back to compete in the last Wrestlemania, Stratus is for all intensive purposes retired and has moved on with her post WWE career.  Many fans clamor for a…
When we spoke with Mick Foley he mentioned that there was a plan to induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame in Madison Square Garden as far back as 2003.  Many signs point to his relationship with the WWE being mended so it would stand to reason that he could enter the Hall soon. …
For all intensive purposes the last important manager in the WWE of note, Paul Bearer was not just a successful on air manager for the WWE, he was one of its more unique characters as well.  Prior to joining Vince and company, Bearer was an unsuccessful wrestler who would achieve greater fame as manager known…
There has been a lot of negativity surrounding the Ultimate Warrior, and honestly a lot of it is justified. His detractors point to his lack of wrestling ability and incoherent interviews. They are right, as the vast majority of his matches were not wrestling clinics and more often than not, you really didn’t have a…
The highlight of a Jake Roberts match wasn’t usually what happened inside the ring, but often what happened before it. His bone chilling, cerebral interviews would set him apart from the traditional bellowing that most wrestlers would do.   Jake was like the evil villain in the movie who you couldn’t help but cheer for…
As one of the original hardcore icons, Abdullah became a star on various continents and winning more titles internationally than many casual fans may have realized.  He was violent, shocking and scary and did it all without uttering a single word.  Abdullah was not just a brawler with foreign objects; as he could wrestle where…
Andre the Giant was the man for whom the WWE Hall of Fame was created for and its first inductee. Standing well over seven feet tall, Andre was actually quite agile in his youth and throughout his career was a featured attraction regardless of where he performed. Loyal to Vince, Andre headlined Wrestlemania 3 putting…
One of the most popular wrestlers of his day, Antonino Rocca was a spectacular athlete and one of the first to really utilize acrobatics in the ring. Rocca was a big reason for the wrestling boom in the Northeast and his following among the Italian and Hispanic audiences was especially high. He is one of…
We have to admit that we loved this induction! Although Antonio Inoki did have a solid relationship with the WWE, wrestling many times for them in the late 70’s and early 80’s, it was in Japan that he was a true star. In fact, Inoki could very well be the most popular wrestler in Japan…

    77.  Spiros Arion
    By the time Spiros Arion made his return to the then World Wide Wrestling Federation in the mid 70’s, he was already a star of international proportions.  The Greek born grappler had already been a star in Europe, but was already one of the biggest stars in Australia.  Arion came close to duplicating that status in the United States. The…
