Sting
As of this writing (Spring 2013) Sting is still very much an active competitor in TNA Wrestling, but as he is well into his 50’s, we feel comfortable with ranking him at this time. When it is all said and done, Sting may never wrestle a match under the WWE banner, and though that will disappoint many fans, this is the guy who helped carry World Championship Wrestling in their lean years, and was the good guy opposition against the initial run of the New World Order.

Overall, Sting may very well be one of the greatest babyfaces in wrestling history. More importantly he was able to have great matches with monsters (like Vader), brawlers (like Mick Foley) and technical wonders (like Ric Flair) and though he is respected as a worker, he is very much undervalued. The WWE has inducted performers who did very little in a WWE ring, but never anybody in the current era. Sting will likely be the first.

Although Sting is in TNA that doesn't mean he shouldn't go in the WWE Hall of Fame. Sting is already in the TNA Hall of Fame with Kurt Angle. Sting should also go in because of all the promotions he was in include: NWA, WCW, TNA, ROH, and also WWE. They put Ric Flair in the hall of fame twice the first time he was in wwe, the second time he was in TNA. So Sting should be allowed in.

Nah. Even when he was champ in WCW, he wasn't their top guy. Carried by much better talents the whole way, though one could make a case that anyone that had to carry Lex Luger for any period of time should get in.

Chris Kanyon Chris Kanyon started off his WWE run well, but he fizzled out to enhancement status by the end.  This was a shame as although he was not a main eventer in WCW, he was at least allowed to showcase his ample skills.  Kanyon developed an offensive move set that defined innovation and more often than not he would usher a…
