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.
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…
The first time that most wrestling fans saw Rene Goulet it was at the tail end of his career where “the #1 Frenchman” would usually go down to defeat against the new babyface in the WWF.  Goulet was a great choice for that role, as even in his 50’s Rene Goulet was among the best conditioned and dependable workers on…
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…
Although the midget wrestler (or to be politically correct, little people) no longer has much of a place in the world of Professional Wrestling, there was a time when countless cards in the United States featured the comedic ability of the small in stature. It is universally regarded that the best of the lot was Sky Low Low.
Tiger Jeet Singh came to Canada penniless from his native India, but he certainly had plans to change that.  With wrestling becoming his meal ticket, Singh would become a star in the Toronto territory and cement himself as the top heel in the region.  Singh would find his real fortune in Japan, where he carved out a name for himself…
Many wrestling fans got their first look at Paul Jones as the heel manager of an army of wrestlers in the NWA, but for years he was one of the top wrestlers in the Mid Atlantic and Florida regions winning multiple individual and tag team belts.  In the NWA promotions he wrestled in, he was a great utility man who…
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…
As one of the kayfabe members of the Graham family, “Crazy” Luke Graham parlayed his bleached blonde locks and wild eyes to a multitude of championships across the United States.  One of those titles was the WWWF World Tag Team strap, of which he is one half of the first recognized co-holders of.  Graham did the wild man gimmick very…
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.
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…
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…
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 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…
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. 
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…
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.
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.
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…
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.
