WWE

Compared to the other Halls of Fame that we discuss on our website, this one is hands down the most fun and the hardest to calculate. Keep in mind, that there is no actual WWE Hall of Fame where fans can go and see their heroes. There are no set criteria to get in the WWE Hall of Fame. Wins and losses don’t exactly matter when the matches are predetermined. It does not even seem to matter if you even wrestled for the WWE as some of their inductees never drew a paycheck from Stamford. This is as subjective as they come so with that we made a criterion of our own which did incorporate (in no particular order) impact, ability, innovation championships won, legacy and their use in the WWE. The only two rules we set was that the wrestler in question was not currently an active competitor on a full-time basis unless that wrestler was 46 or over.  Once a wrestler becomes 46 that individual moves from the Futures to the Main List at the time of revision.

Until Then, Whatcha gonna do when Notinhalloffame.com runs wild on you!
 
Sincerely,
 
The Not in Hall of Committee.
The kayfabe brother of Fritz Von Erich, Waldo Von Erich did not enter the WWE Hall of Fame with his “Family” when Fritz and company were inducted. That is not to say that he should have, as that induction was more of a testament to World Class Championship Wrestling, which Waldo was not a part of.
The figurehead President of the World Wrestling Federation, Jack Tunney would show up occasionally on television, make a mandate or discipline a wrestler and would disappear until he was needed again. He was never the actual President, but was the Toronto promoter for the WWF and that territory grew exponentially under him. As the on screen authority figure, Tunney was…
Although the focus of the female portion of the Rock and Wrestling era centered on Cyndi Lauper, The Fabulous Moolah and Wendi Richter, people forget that it was Leilani Kai who worked the secondary Wrestlemania main event against Richter.  Kai was the dependable worker called upon when needed which would later be shown when she was paired with Judy Martin…
What was a charitable move by the McMahon family in offering her a job and an on screen role following the death of her husband, Eddie Guerrero resulted in what would become one of the biggest non-wrestling heels of all time.
On of the top stars of the 1960’s was Bill Miller, but despite his vast accomplishments has been largely forgotten.  The former Ohio Buckeye entered the world of pro wrestling in his early 30’s and while in the AWA he became on of the few chosen to wear the AWA World Heavyweight Championship.  Miller would later be a top contender…
The father of Jeff Jarrett had a lot more impact in the world of wrestling than casual fans realize.  Jerry Jarrett was a top star in the Memphis territory holding multiple championships in the Volunteer State, but he slowly worked his way into to becoming a promoter, and by the decade’s end, ran one of the tightest organizations.  Jerry “The…
A mentor of the legendary Lou Thesz, Ray Steele, who immigrated from German occupied Norka (in Russia) as a child, would become he NWA World Heavyweight Champion in 1940.  Steele would that belt for a year, a major accomplishment, but his mentorship of younger stars might be the best part of his legacy.
It was certainly no misnomer when Brian Knobs and Jerry Sags dubbed their team The Nasty Boys.  They looked and wrestled the part and while you wouldn’t see a wrestling clinic when they competed, you would certainly see a match that was well…..nasty.
Possibly the only Olympic winner (Bronze in Judo at the 76 Olympics) in Professional Wrestling history to have that accolade ignored, Allen Coage found far more fame as a wrestler than he ever did in Judo competition.
Saddled with one of the worst gimmicks in WWE history (which says a lot), Bob Holly was going nowhere as the happy race car driver, Thurman “Sparky” Plugg.  As the Attitude Era emerged, Holly was allowed to develop a more hardcore style thus becoming the aptly named Hardcore Holly.  Holly’s take no prisoners attitude seemed like a natural fit and…
El Canek may not have made a dent in the United States, but he was the primary star for Mexico’s UWA promotion for nearly two decades.  As the multiple Heavyweight Title holder for UWA, Canek holds victories over a diverse group of Lou Thesz, Vader, Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant.  In fact, he is one of the few who…
His appearance on WWE television may have been a brief and forgettable appearance as Mr. Perfect’s manager, Coach, but in Los Angeles, John Tolos was a brutally savage wrestler who was a title taking machine in the West Coast.  The Golden Greek was feared and the rough style he showed was often imitated by others.  Tolos captured numerous titles as…
Sam Muchnick was a major force in the creation of the National Wrestling Alliance in 1948 and in 1950 would serve as the President of the most important governing body in professional wrestling from 1950 to 1977 (with the exception of two years). Muchnick would preside over the St. Louis territory making it one of the healthiest in the United…
There have been a plethora of excellent wrestlers from the United Kingdom, but few of them have made a serious dent in the American Market.  Dave Findlay was one of those rare exceptions; a fact that becomes even more remarkable as he really didn’t make an American impact until his late 30’s.
Masa Saito was not your typical Japanese wrestler.  Many of them will never compete outside of Japan, and those that do may do so only for a run or two in the United States.  Saito competed often in the U.S. for various promotions often competing in tag teams with other foreign born heels.  Saito was a compact powerhouse with a…
Long before there was Goldust, there was “Exotic” Adrian Street who pushed the sexual boundaries like no other had before.  His character wasn’t just flamboyant, as he played the part of a tough transvestite bedecked with glitter, pigtails and the most garish makeup this side of Gene Simmons.  He created a persona designed to make fans uncomfortable and likely executed…
A former professional Football player, Wilbur Snyder entered the pro wrestling ranks and made a mark for himself almost immediately.  Snyder competed primarily in the American Mid West and would eventually buy into the Indianapolis based WWA promotion.  While there, he was one of the top draws and constantly was holding championships there.  Although he was a former gridiron great,…
Should Konnan ever get into the WWE Hall of Fame, it certainly won’t be for his handful of matches as the original Max Moon.  The Cuban born wrestler achieved his first level of super stardom in the AAA promotion of Mexico where he excelled as both a heel and a face.  He would later join WCW and after a few…
Like many who became premier managers in wrestling, Gary Hart first donned the tights as an in ring competitor.  His career as a wrestler may have been uneventful, but he made his impact as a manager and behind the scenes player especially in the World Class territory where he was the long time booker.  Hart would also lead a heel…
“Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig is justifiably in the WWE Hall of Fame.  Curt’s father, Larry “The Ax” Hennig had quite the career himself predominantly in his home state of Minnesota.  In the 1960’s, Hennig was one half of the AWA World Tag Team Champions, three of which he held with the legendary Harley Race.  He would however suffer a severe…
