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.
It could easily be argued that Lance Storm was one of the top technical wrestlers of whatever promotions he was in.  Considering that he competed in ECW, WCW and the WWE, the above statement becomes even more impressive.  Lance Storm had main even talent but he was mainly used in the mid card.  This isn’t to denigrate what he accomplished…
Red Bastien was one of the better natural athletes of his day and according to his peers was one of the most pure talents. Bastien would win multiple championships across the country and bring merriment to every locker room he was in. Bastien’s travels also brought him to the WWWF in the 60’s and was featured on Madison Square Garden…
A pillar of New Japan Pro wrestling in and out of the ring for decades, Seiji Sakaguchi is one of the unsung heroes of the successful Japanese promotion.
While Fritz Von Erich was considered the main promoter in the state of Texas, there were many that would argue that this title should have been granted to Paul Boesch who ran the Houston territory for twenty-one years.
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…
When the Barbarian received a WCW World Heavyweight Title shot at 1992’s Halloween Havoc Pay Per View, a lot of wrestling fans wondered aloud how a life long mid carder could be on the semi main event of a major PPV.  Looking back, Sionne Vailahi (The Barbarian) had every physical gift imaginable and the skills and if booked differently could…
(Noriyo Tateno & Itsuki Yamazaki)It is not argued that there were not athletic women in wrestling before the Jumping Bomb Angels; there most certainly was.  However, this was this female Japanese duo that became showcase moves that were not seen on American television before; by either men or women!  They were able to get over with the WWF audience despite…
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…
Torrie Wilson may not have been much of a wrestler, but when you look like her, you didn’t have to be. With her sexuality, personality and All-American good looks, she was one of the best valets ever in a major wrestling promotion regardless of whether she was a heel or face. Very few women could pull that off.
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…
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. 
The in-ring career of John Laurinaitis (Johnny Ace) was better than he got credit for, as while he was a lower card wrestler in the NWA/WCW and one half of a lame tag team with Shane Douglas as the Dynamic Dudes, he emerged as an upper card wrestler, and a very good one with All Japan Wrestling.  
Best known for his role as the foreign heel manager, General Skandor Akbar, the man born as Jimmy Webha was actually a native Texan.
There are really two careers of Shirley Crabtree, the first where he was a giant chested heel who taunted the crowd with his strength and good looks. He did well, but it paled to what he did after his near decade sabbatical from the business. He returned with the same gigantic chest, though his midsection was considerably large too. He…
Some of you may be aware of the story that Vince McMahon Jr. took over as the lead announcer for the then named World Wide Wrestling Federation when his father let the existing one go over a pay dispute. The man he took over for was Ray Morgan, the original voice for the Capitol Sports Promotion and the man who…
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.
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.
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…
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,…
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…
