I have a pit in my stomach when I think of the the Dudley Boys going in because I'm fairly certain they're not going to include Spike and I'm going to fly into a nerd rage.

I'd still put in my jobbers from a different but similar post.

Since then, I'd say all of those mentioned so far and then I'd say Sean Waltman.

Waltman had an unlikely career amongst Giants. He made it fun to watch and gave hope to the little guy that was duplicated over time based on his efforts. So much hope that it paved the way of believability for all those that followed.


In spite of X-Pac heat, he did something great for the business that should be recognized. Again Koko B. Ware is in there.

After thinking about DDP and how DDP Yoga will probably ultimately be a bigger contribution to the wrestling industry than his run at the top of WCW, I realized that Christopher Nowinski probably deserves an eventual induction for the work he's doing to make wrestling safer through the Sports Legacy Institute. His actual run as a wrestler is less than memorable, but his impact on the business could be immeasurable. (And yes, that pun was fully intentional.)

I have no idea why Brian Pullman hasn't been in the Hall for years now.

Everyone knows the Loose Canon gimmick. How he "Worked" Bischoff into a complete release, ECW debut interview, then the Fed run. First ever WWF guaranteed contract. Maybe in all of wrestling. Vince was afraid he'd bolt too.

Before all of that he was a Bengal tight wearing high flyer the era of the big man. His Liger matches were great. Liger would be a good nominee too.

Then his greatest run in my opinion was the Hollywood Blondes. They were perfect together. Like the precursor to DX. Was A Flair for the Old the first ever parody segment in wrestling history?

The sad end to his life is probably the main reason why he's out. Go back and watch his highlights and you'll see one of those "Before Their Time" Superstars.

Can we just put Raven in there and be done with it?

Vader

Odds 100%
This year 75%

There aren't a ton of names they can squeeze out at this point, Vader is a mainstay still in each video game that comes out.

Bruiser Brody

Odds 50%
This year 5%

The guy made a name for himself in a bygone era with almost no exposure in a WWF/WWE ring, and is most famous for stiffing the fuck out of Luger and getting stabbed. JBL still name drops the guy, though.

Owen Hart

Odds 100%
This year 0%

So long as the estate of Owen Hart views using Owen as a means of making money (and to be honest, that's what the HoF and video games are intended to do), they will not allow him to be inducted. Also, the year that he is allowed in, he's the first name listed just to jump start attention for the HoF.

Sid

Odds 100%
This year 75%

The guy was a former champion, faced Hogan and Taker at separate Manias, was one of the guys to come out and beat up Heath Slater a couple years back, and is featured in WWE 2K17. Also known for the most freak injury perhaps in WCW history. A heartfelt speech from the big guy would be endearing in it's own way, especially since Sid comes off as such a big teddy bear in shoot videos. Also inspired the look of Brock Samson. The big question is who inducts him, since he seems like he's never had a ton of friends in the business.

David Arquette (celeb win)

Odds 0%
This year 0%

Still, one of the biggest contributors to the entire WCW library being in the possession of the WWE today.

Al Snow

Odds 50%
This year 50%

Was a trainer for a long time in OVW, a staple of the Hardcore scene in the late 90s, and has been in the business since 1982.

This thread proves one simple thing. HHH is the Tom Leykis of professional wrestling. If you have a Nielsen box, and watch Raw to get more things to hate about HHH, you know what happens? That's right, your ratings point goes to WWE.
