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.
He was named the “Man Mountain” from Stone Mountain (Georgia) and at 5 ft 9 and well over 400 pounds, Jerry Blackwell fit that bill.   Blackwell may have had physical dimensions that may have reflected someone who was not athletic, but in Blackwell’s prime he was quite mobile and competed in Strongest Man competitions.  There was a time when he…
The brother of Dr. Tom Prichard, Bruce Prichard started working behind the scenes with the WWE in 1986, though he was often used as an announcer.  Prichard would come up with the persona of “Brother Love”, a play off real life televangelists.  Brother Love would be a regular character for three years on WWE Television, but backstage, he would emerge…
The first WWE run of Juan Rivera was not an impressive one as he was cast as masked ninja named Kwang.  When that persona thankfully ended, he was given the name of Savio Vega and embraced his Puerto Rican roots.  The fit was perfect and for years, Savio Vega was a solid mid card performer for the WWE.  After Vega…
Best known for his role as the foreign heel manager, General Skandor Akbar, the man born as Jimmy Webha was actually a native Texan.
Although Mark Lewin never really had much to do with the WWE, he had a twenty five year plus career that saw him acquire many belts over many territories.  Lewin’s start in wrestling actually dates back to the late 50’s and with his good looks he was a natural for the baby face role.  Like so many wrestlers, Lewin wanted…
Considered one of the best female workers the WWE ever had, Molly Holly was easily the most selfless. She sacrificed her hair in a Wrestlemania Match, put over far more talent than she should have, but was still a two-time WWE Women’s Champion and could be counted on to make even the most inexperienced female wrestler look credible. Her ranking…
Former three time NCAA Champion, Dick Hutton became the NWA World Heavyweight Champion defeating the great Lou Thesz in 1957.  Dick Hutton was a technical master but in the televised age of wrestling was ill equipped to deal with the personalities that came with it.  He may have been World Champion, but remains one of the most forgotten ones ever. 
Finally wrestling a reduced schedule, unlike many of the stars of the 1990’s from New Japan had more than just an appearance or two in the United States.  The Japanese star wrestled frequently for WCW and was even the NWA World Heavyweight Champion while the legendary promotion was endorsed by WCW.
There are a great amount of wrestlers on this list likely could have had a more successful career.  It has been stated by many on the inside that Thunderbolt Patterson, who was known as a great talker, may have literally talked himself out of greatness.  Patterson did however manage to carve out successful runs in various territories across the United…
Possibly the toughest female wrestler of any generation, Akira Hokuto was also damn good.  She made sporadic appearances in the United States, but her matches are still sought after on YouTube and her legend continues to grow.  Japanese female wrestling may not have the luster it once had, but to those who followed it, Hokuto is considered its queen.
The son of the legendary El Santo, had quite the career himself as what else; “El Hijo del Santo”, translated to The Son of the Saint.
The evil German was a staple for decades in Professional Wrestling, but the first to really make money with it and terrorize opponents and fans was Hans Schmidt. The gimmick was money, and Schmidt played it perfectly (he was really a Quebecer) and was arguably the first great villain in the televised wrestling era. He hit opponents with his helmet,…
Originally ranked by Notinhalloffame.com separately, the Moondogs (Spot, Rex and King) have been grouped together and maybe it is this combination that could see these men have a shot at the WWE Hall of Fame.
If you only saw his lone WWF match at the 1997 Royal Rumble you wouldn’t think he was anything special.  The fact is that Perro Aguayo held multiple championships south of the border and was a major draw there whether he was a “rudo” or technico”.  He may have been undersized even by Mexican standards, and he wasn’t a high…
There is a long list of wrestling “cowboys” who used their Texas brand of brutality to scare opponents in the ring.  Bobby Duncum Sr. was one of those men, but he seemed to be overshadowed by others who had similar gimmicks.  Duncum competed all over the NWA and had a run in the WWE going after Bruno Sammartino and later…
As “The Man You Loved to Hate”, Mick McManus was one of the first major stars of European Wrestling and did so while performing the majority of his career as a dastardly heel. Amazingly, he would become a huge celebrity in his native England, and though he had a conniving sneer and broke the rules often, he elicited such a…
Johnny DeFazio did not have a won/loss record that would make you take notice, but he was a four time WWF Junior Heavyweight title and a man who worked solidly for the WWWF in the Pittsburgh territory for years. It may not make him an automatic entry for the WWE Hall of Fame, but he does hold a series of…
Umaga should not be on this list.  Not because he didn’t have a good career, but because he should still be alive competing and enjoying his life.  From a family of wrestling royalty (the Anoa’i clan), Eddie Fatu first hit the WWE as one half of the Three Minute Warning with his cousin.  The pair started off with a bang,…
Ron Killings is one of those ageless wonders whereby despite his youthful appearance he is (and probably always be) a decade older than he looks.
There will always be a place for very large men in wrestling, especially a six hundred pound one who was as mobile as Viscera.  Starting off in the WWF as Mabel in one half of the friendly rapping duo, Men on A Mission, he slowly morphed into a bad ass heel that someone his size was designed to be.  After…
