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 son of wrestler Jack Britton, Gino Brito was a French Canadian who managed a solid run in his native Quebec and under the name of Louis Cerdan was a co-holder of the World Wrestling Federation Tag Team Title with Tony “Cannonball” Parisi. Brito would remain a draw in Montreal and run Lutte Internationale, which was the main promotion in…
Arguably one of the most underrated wrestlers that put on the trunks under the WWE umbrella, Tyson Kidd was the last graduate of the famous Hart Dungeon, and with his marriage to Nattie Neidhart, he is on the fringe of wrestling royalty.  He would join the WWE in developmental in 2006, and along with his longtime friend, Harry Smith would…
An Olympian in 1984, Hiroshi Hase would go on the New Japan where he first gained traction as their Junior Heavyweight Champion.  Hase would win that championship twice, but he would move up the ranks to heavyweight where he would be one of the promotion's top tag team wrestler winning the belts on three occasions, two with Kensuke Sasaki and…
The greatest wrestler from England in the first half of the 20th century, Bert Assirati was the largest box office draw in the United Kingdom and perhaps one of the best.  Assairati was a legitimate strongman and a major domino in the history of British wrestling but his failure to even crack the American mid-card works largely against him.  Still,…
Often confused with Ed “Strangler” Lewis, Evan Lewis was a pioneering wrestler in his own right who would win multiple championships in the late 1800s including the American Catch-as-Catch-can, American Heavyweight and American Greco-Roman title. Lewis would become a draw in the Midwest, and he is credited for creating the rear naked choke, which gave him the nickname of "Strangler"…
Bugsy McGraw seemingly wrestled everywhere in the United States in his long career.   Early in his career, he wrestled under a hood, or with various other personas, but it was late in his career as the eccentric Bugsy McGraw that he is best known for.  McGraw was the most technically sound wrestler, but he didn’t have to be to make…
Earl Caddock was one of the greatest amateur wrestlers of all time as he was a three-time winner of the National AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) title before becoming a professional.  Caddock would defeat Joe Stetcher for the World Heavyweight Championship in 1917 and would later beat Wladek Zbyzsko who won a tournament for the vacant title when Caddock refused to…
A former World Heavyweight Champion, Hungarian, Sandor Szabo would become a legend in California where he was not just a multi-time champion but a booker and celebrity.
There were not many African American wrestlers who ascended to a high position on the card forty years ago, thus making the accomplishments of Sonny King that much more impressive.  King cut his teeth in the vibrant Detroit territory, and would later head east to New York where he teamed with Chief Jay Strong bow to capture the tag team…
Phil Zacko is a name that doesn't come up much, but along with Gorilla Monsoon and Arnold Skaaland, Phil Zacko owned part of Capitol Sports which was the precursor to the WWE.  That triumvirate had half of the WWWF where Vince McMahon Jr. would buy out his father’s share and worked out a deal to buy the other half in…
Negro Casas came into Lucha Libre with an excellent pedigree as the son of Pepe Casas (and the brother of two other Luchadores), and he proved to be the most talented of the clan.  A natural from the start, Casas would win a plethora of championships in Mexico both as a single and tag team, and his rivalry/friendship with El…
Born in Los Angeles, Duke Keomuka was one of many American born wrestlers of Asian descent who played an evil Japanese foreigner. 
A well travelled referee (including the WWE), Bill Alfonso will always be best known for his run in Extreme Championship Wrestling, where after a stint as a ref, he became a whistle blowing manager.
While younger readers may remember Jamie Noble as one half of J&J Security, we here at Notinhalloffame.com recall him as a technical machine that could always deliver good matches in the ring and was a technical marvel.  Noble is a former WWE Cruiserweight Champion and would later become a champion in Ring of Honor, and defeated no less than CM…
When you think of great Light Heavyweight wrestlers from England, the Dynamite Kid is usually the first one thought of.  Prior to the former member of the British Bulldogs, the best Light Heavyweight wrestler from the United Kingdom was Mark “Rollerball” Rocco, who was not only talented but was a decent draw in his native country.  His best work (as…
Like the Von Erichs who have six members in the WWE Hall of Fame, we present the Duseks, who have six notable family members…well, four and two kayfabe ones.
A former recognized National Wrestling Association Heavyweight Champion, Danno O’Mahony would become a major draw in the American Northeast due to his skill and Irish heritage.  Mahony would unify for a time The NWA and AWA World Title and was the biggest wrestling draw in Boston for years.
Billy Jack Haynes wore the colors and name of Oregon all over his ring gear, but that part was no gimmick as he was Portland born and raised.  Haynes became one of the biggest stars in the Pacific Northwest Wrestling promotion and would later take that to the WWE.  Haynes was strong and agile and his persona translated well to…
As of this writing, Ultimo Guerrero is still on top of the world in CMLL, but we do have a mandatory age of 46 where a wrestler moves to the main list, hence why he is here.
Two Nature Boys in Professional Wrestling seems like a lot, but three seems like overkill.  The third “Nature Boy” was Buddy Landel, who was a talented wrestler who struggled to escape mid card status.  Occasionally, promoters would let his talent prevail and trust him to headline cards and grant him championships, but Landel was deemed unreliable overall and despite his…
