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 criteria of our own which did incorporate (in no particular order) impact, ability, innovation championships won, legacy and their use in the WWE. The only rule we set was that the wrestler in question was not currently an active competitor on a full time basis.

Until Then, Whatcha gonna do when Notinhalloffame.com runs wild on you!
 
Sincerely,
 
The Not in Hall of Committee.
Although we kind of found the “Skinner” character a guilty pleasure, it was hardly a reflection of the great career of Steve Keirn.
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.
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…
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…
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.  
Quite often in the 1980’s, the WWE was able to take regional stars and break them into a National audience.  Dick Slater was not one of those fortunate ones, as the “E” totally whiffed on him turning him into a happy redneck nicknamed “The Rebel”.  Outside of Stamford, Slater was at his best as a rough heel, and he headlined…
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!
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.
Arguably the man who put Quebec on the map in terms of Professional Wrestling, Yvon Robert was a star in the business for three decades and is a former NWA World Heavyweight Champion.  Robert travelled across North America in his day and while he was based in Montreal, he would be known throughout the continent as a bona fide star.
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.
Although the midget wrestler (or to be politically correct, little people) no longer has much of a place in the world of Professional Wrestling, there was a time when countless cards in the United States featured the comedic ability of the small in stature. It is universally regarded that the best of the lot was Sky Low Low.
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.
Do you remember the “Blow Away” diet starring “Playboy” Buddy Rose?  We do, and as funny as it was, this is not how we remember him.  In a profession with chiseled bodies, Buddy Rose stuck out like the proverbial sore thumb.  He was overweight, and later in his career was morbidly obese.  It has to be noted that regardless of…
There are many big men in wrestling and have been throughout its history.  The Spoiler may be the first really tall wrestler to show incredible agility and would foreshadow that larger men could move like men half their size.
Before “Stone Cold” Steve Austin was chugging beer on Monday Night Raw, there was the Sandman.  He didn’t just drink beer; he took the empty can and smashed his forehead with it, often drawing blood.  He also entered the ring smoking a cigarette with a kendo stick in hand, the latter of which would often find its way into his…
Tiger Jeet Singh came to Canada penniless from his native India, but he certainly had plans to change that.  With wrestling becoming his meal ticket, Singh would become a star in the Toronto territory and cement himself as the top heel in the region.  Singh would find his real fortune in Japan, where he carved out a name for himself…
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…
Many wrestling fans got their first look at Paul Jones as the heel manager of an army of wrestlers in the NWA, but for years he was one of the top wrestlers in the Mid Atlantic and Florida regions winning multiple individual and tag team belts.  In the NWA promotions he wrestled in, he was a great utility man who…
The first time that most wrestling fans saw Rene Goulet it was at the tail end of his career where “the #1 Frenchman” would usually go down to defeat against the new babyface in the WWF.  Goulet was a great choice for that role, as even in his 50’s Rene Goulet was among the best conditioned and dependable workers on…
As one of the kayfabe members of the Graham family, “Crazy” Luke Graham parlayed his bleached blonde locks and wild eyes to a multitude of championships across the United States.  One of those titles was the WWWF World Tag Team strap, of which he is one half of the first recognized co-holders of.  Graham did the wild man gimmick very…
