El Santo
The WWE Hall of Fame indicted Mil Mascaras, who is a certifiable Mexican legend and had numerous matches under a WWE banner. Mascaras is a worthy inductee, but is it possible that they should look into the past of Mexican wrestling, even if it does predate its beginning?   Perhaps, they should, and if so, El Santo would be a perfect candidate for the WWE Hall of Fame.

El Santo (The Saint) was not just a major figure in the history of Luchadores, he was a transcendent figure who starred in movies, sold out arenas and had millions of children wear silver masks. Should the WWE Hall of Fame ever ask itself if it should induct someone who represents the first wave of Lucha Libre, then they will select him. The real question is whether they will ever ask this in the first place.

El Santo has now been confirmed as one of the nine Legacy Wing inductees for the WWE Hall of Fame: Class of 2018.

He was certainly the most famous and most popular mexican professional wrestling star from the 20th Century and he was an absolute must for the WWE Hall of Fame.

I'm absolutely thrilled that he's now a WWE Hall of Famer.
