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.
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…
Balls Mahoney may be best known for being a “chair swinging freak in ECW” but he did spend time in the WWE twice and was a top guy for Jim Cornette’s Smoky Mountain Wrestling.  Mahoney was a hardcore icon and was actually a decent amateur wrestler but it was that style that got him over, and likely led to his…
Somehow in the history of professional wrestling the history of Pak Song has been forgotten.  Maybe it is because we still don’t know that much about him.
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.
In some ways Ron Harris & Don Harris were a journeyman tag team, but the identical Harris Twins did have a certain level of success in the two largest wrestling promotions in North America. They were at their biggest in the WWE, as Skull & 8-Ball, members of, and then appropriated the name as the Disciples of Apocalypse. In WCW,…
Like many “evil” Japanese wrestlers of the 1970’s, Tor Kamata was not actually from Japan, but was from Hawaii.
The gimmick of the Disco Inferno was a goofy one, there is no denying that, but you have to credit Glenn Gilberti for always injecting new life into it so that it could last six years in a solid mid-card role in WCW.
The father of all five of the Villanos (I through V), Ray Mendoza was a former boxer who would transition to a twenty-five year career in Lucha Libre.  Mendoza would be associated with the NWA Light Heavyweight Title for years and is one of the few wrestlers to have achieved near equal success as a face as he was as…
A champion across North America, Sweet Daddy Siki found his home in Toronto where he would become a local icon.  Siki was not the most decorated wrestler, but he was a flamboyant performer who was influential for many performers, black and white. 
Crash Holly may have been undersized regardless of the era, but he became the “Houdini of Hardcore” and became the face of the Hardcore division.  He pluckily fought any competitor regardless of his weight disadvantage and when he won the WWE Hardcore Championship and boldly stated that he would fight any contender 24/7, he unleashed a new era in the…
Al Madril was a fixture for years in Texas but while he was well known there, he appeared in multiple promotions up and down the Pacific.  Madril never was in the WWE, but his territorial work still holds a high place in many people’s memories.
While the run of Tony Anthony in the WWE as T.L. Hopper and Uncle Cletus was not exactly stellar, “The Dirty White Boy” had a long and prosperous career as a single and in tag teams throughout the America South.  Perhaps his best run was in Smoky Mountain Wrestling where he was the promotion’s Heavyweight Champion three times.
In terms of actual fame, “Count” Billy Varga eclipsed many of his contemporaries as he appeared on many television shows and movies in the 50’s and 60’s often playing…what else? A wrestler!  In the ring however Varga was a draw in the California and Hawaii area and held his fair share of championship belts.  This would include the NWA World…
Neff Maiava was not the most accomplished wrestler in the world or really even in the state of Hawaii, but he was arguably the first Polynesian star of note who could main event regularly.
There were a lot of heavy hitters in All-Japan in the late 90’s but Akira Taue, a former sumo turned pro wrestler may have been the “heaviest”.
