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.
As one of the many strong muscle bound wrestlers in the WWF during the 80’s, Hercules Hernandez still managed to stand out.  Anyone with the moniker of “Hercules” better have the physique to back it up.  Thankfully, that was not an issue for the man who gained his greatest fame as a member of the Bobby Heenan family.
Although “Superstar” Bill Dundee was undersized and was rarely used in a National promotion, he was a huge star in the Memphis area and a great ally and foil of Jerry Lawler there.  The Superstar could be flashy, arrogant or modest depending on what character was needed in the area at the time.  His biggest taste on the big stage…
The patriarch of the Orton clan, Bob Orton Sr. competed all across the United States winning a plethora of regional singles and tag team championships.  Credited with inventing the pedigree finishing manoeuvre, Orton had a run himself in the WWWF, (though billed as “Cowboy” Rocky Fitzpatrick) which saw him receive a World Title shot against Bruno Sammartino.
When you think of Jacques Rougeau usually two things will come to mind.  The first is his excellent tag teams with his older brother Raymond and later with Pierre Ouelette.  The second (and our personal favorite) was his work as the evil law enforcement officer, The Mountie.  Regardless of which incarnation you think of the end result was a competent…
One of the first to don the “Cowboy” monikers, Bob Ellis was actually a legitimate cowboy. Ellis was a rough customer who was part of sell outs all across the country, not to mention successful stints in Australia. He deliberately seemed to maintain a low profile after he left the industry, which may be why he is not held in…
For years, pro wrestling magazines touted Al Snow as “the greatest wrestler you never saw”.  It took a long time for Snow to gain attention; who knew it would take a mannequin head to get it.
Terry Taylor had a nice little career going for him.  He won many regional titles and was considered one of the better workers in professional wrestling; and then he went to the WWE.   Terry Taylor was dubbed the Red Rooster, and after a sub par heel run under the management of Bobby Heenan he went to gimmick hell with the…
When Bret Hart mentioned on a recent Legends of Wrestling Roundtable that the best wrestler to come out of Canada was the Stomper, Archie Gouldie, the rest of the panel thought it was a real stretch.  It may still be, but the more you think about it the accomplishments of Gouldie, it isn’t as far out of leftfield as originally…
Dutch Mantel was a major star in the southern promotions throughout the 70’s and 80’s.  He wasn’t a tall or well built wrestler, but he had the art of wrestling psychology down and could always deliver a good match.  Mantel’s greatest gift to wrestling was what he did outside of the ring utilizing his mind as a booker (he has…
This should be interesting.The Great Gama might be a name that Western Canadian fans might remember from Stampede Wrestling, but this Great Gama was the very influential wrestler from India who was one of the greatest physical specimens of not just his era but any era.  
A lot of people only remember General Adnan as the Iraqi mouthpiece of Sgt. Slaughter during the former G.I. Joe pitchman’s run as an Iraqi sympathizer.  Adnan didn’t wrestle much during that final National run, but that wasn’t his role at the time.  With that said, Adnan wrestled a lot more in the past than most people realized.
The majority of wrestling fans who remember seeing King Curtis Iaukea would remember him as the mouthpiece for Kamala during his 1987 run and later as the figurehead leader of the unintentionally comical Dungeon of Doom in the mid 90’s.  Prior to his managing stint, Iaukea was one of the most feared wrestlers and wreaked havoc in various promotions in…
The time that Eddie Gilbert spent in the WWF was largely uneventful.  He was basically a glorified jobber whose high water mark was getting destroyed by the Masked Superstar on television.  It wouldn’t be much longer after that he got to shine in smaller promotions and “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert really made people take notice.
Form many years, Willie Gilzenberg was the President of the World Wide Wrestling Federation, but this was not a “figurehead” President like Jack Tunney was in the 80’s and 90’s. This guy really was the President!
With her blend of beauty, strength and personality, Lisa Marie Varon portrayed “Vicotria” in the WWE, and though she was successful in the Women’s division, she probably could have done a lot more if she was given the right opportunity. Still, her athletic skills allowed her to shine in the ring; when permitted of course.
A constant performer in NWA Hollywood, Victor Rivera was a wrestler who appealed to the Hispanic demographic based not only on his race, but a decent workrate and likable personality.  Rivera was a multi-time champion in Los Angeles in both singles and tag teams.
A huge NBC executive best known for his work in the Sports and Late Night divisions, Dick Ebersol was the producer for the Saturday Night’s Main Event series that became an unexpected smash hit for both the WWE and NBC.  Ebersol was not a “paper” producer and by bringing professional wrestling back to network television proved to be a huge…
Another Japanese wrestler who is not well known to North American audiences (although he did have many matches here in the 70’s), Riki Choshu also was one of the top stars in Japan and was a constant fixture in the Heavyweight ranks there for decades.
The WWE Hall of Fame has recognized Mil Mascaras and they have had working agreements with Mexican promotions before.  The Hall has also inducted former promotors.  Could this be the combination that could induct Salvador Lutteroth?
Robert Fuller’s biggest national exposure was as the heel manager, Col. Robert Parker in WCW, but fans in Tennessee had watched Robert Fuller for well over fifteen years prior in the ring.  As the “Tennessee Stud”, Fuller ran rough shot throughout the South and even had a hand running the Continental Promotion for a spell.  Should Fuller ever get a…
