Current WWE Inductees

A very successful manager in the Memphis area, Jimmy Hart entered the WWF in early 1985 and quickly became one of the top managers there guiding a unique stable of wrestlers for years.  With his loud suits, obnoxious megaphone and willingness to do anything to entertain the fans, Jimmy Hart was a great addition to…
The “Superfly” never won a championship of any kind in the WWE, but he never had to.  In fact, Jimmy Snuka is still best known for his “Superfly” leap off the top of a Steel Cage onto the Magnificent Muraco in Madison Square Gardens; a match in which he lost!   Snuka did many have many…
Do not go by won/loss records when judging this induction.  “The Unpredictable” Johnny Rodz was with the WWE as an in ring competitor for almost twenty years, and though he was almost always in opening matches, he was an excellent measuring stick to see if up and coming talent had what it took to make…
While it can not really be disputed that Mildred Burke was the biggest women’s star of the 30’s and 40’s, that mantle was shifted to June Byers in the 50’s.  Byers would become the World Champion in the 50’s defeating Mildred Burke and would become the top female in the industry until a car accident…
Kevin Nash may not have been the darling of the internet community, nor was he ever confused with being one of the great workers of the business.  Quite often his critics forget that he never had to be and possesses one of the more solid resumes on this list for Hall of Fame induction.
Revamping the ZZ Top classic “Legs” for former WWE Diva (and former girlfriend of George Clooney) Stacy Keibler, Kid Rock performed a set at Wrestlemania 25 prior to the entrance of the Diva’s Battle Royal.  To date, it is the longest musical performance at a Wrestlemania, though we aren’t sure exactly what that is worth,…
There are few wrestlers who have more legendary heel lore than Killer Kowalski.  From the time (though accidentally) he ripped the ear off Yukon Eric to terrorizing fan favorites across North America with his vicious demeanor and imposing size, few were feared more than Walter “Killer” Kowalski.   He was a constant contender for the WWF…
Many (including us) were surprised by this induction.  “The Birdman” Koko B. Ware did have a long tenure in Stamford, but it was mainly as a “jobber to the stars” and though he was a good hand, he did not have a career that seemed to scream Hall of Fame.  With all due respect to…
Kurt Angle won the 1996 Freestyle Olympic Gold Medal in Atlanta, and thought there has been past Olympians in the WWE, Angle would become the first Gold Medalist to enter the organization. Angle would have the best rookie year in WWE history, winning the European, Intercontinental and World Heavyweight Title, while dazzling fans with his…
It is hard to determine just whether Larry Zbyszko was best known for his feud with Bruno Sammartino, his loud arrogance or his hatred for Vince McMahon.
As Divas exploded onto the WWE landscape; Amy Dumas looked a little different the others.  She wasn’t a Barbie Doll, but a relatable woman who exuded her own brand of sexuality with large tattoos, a high up thong and a style that was more indicative of what you would see in high schools.  This made…
Best known as the comedic foil on WWF broadcasts in the 80’s and early 90’s, Lord Alfred Hayes was actually an accomplished wrestler who carved out a solid career for himself in his native England.  Hayes would travel to the United States and won himself a handful of regional championships and would later become a…
Despite the major respect we have for Lou Thesz, we were not initially planning to put him in our list. The bulk of Thesz’ career took place before the dawn of the WWE and even then he barely had any dealings with the North Eastern promotion. Still, the induction of Gorgeous George has opened up…
Recently, Matt Striker referred to Serena as the anti-diva.  That may be somewhat accurate, but had the diva term been associated with wrestling in the past, that designation would have been earmarked for Luna Vachon.  As the daughter of Paul Vachon and the niece of Mad Dog and Vivian Vachon, Luna was bred for the…
If Debbie Miceli ever thought about the WWE Hall of Fame, would she have followed Eric Bischoff’s instructions and have thrown the WWE Women’s Championship on her shocking debut on WCW Nitro?  Regardless of that still talked event from the Monday Night War, Madusa (we refuse to call her Alundra Blayze) was one hell of…
Although she had a very long and successful career for many decades, Mae Young is best known for her second career which was essentially comedic appearances for the WWE.  The chances are fairly solid that it was this aspect of her wrestling timeline that got her inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
While only 43 years old (as of this writing), Mark Henry’s in ring career is clearly winding down and injuries are catching up to him, hence why he was moved from the futures to this list, but we have to say fifteen years ago we never would have pegged him as a WWE Hall of…
The small in stature French Canadian was a legitimate amateur athlete, and even more legitimate tough guy.  Although Maurice “Mad Dog” Vachon was often the shorter combatant, he always looked the toughest.  Vachon was a classic heel, with his shaved head, missing teeth and vicious growl.  Like so many, Vachon did his job so well…
When we spoke with Mick Foley he mentioned that there was a plan to induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame in Madison Square Garden as far back as 2003.  Many signs point to his relationship with the WWE being mended so it would stand to reason that he could enter the Hall soon. …
In what has to be the first logical celebrity inductee, “Iron” Mike Tyson was the focal point of Wrestlemania 14 as the Special Enforcer, and unlike many celebrities brought in for that role, Tyson WANTED to be there. A lifelong wrestling fan, Tyson did not just appear at Wrestlemania, he participated in two months of…
