Sgt. Slaughter
Superstar Billy Graham
Tito Santana
Don Muraco
Harley Race
Junkyard Dog
Big John Studd.

They join such past luminaries as:

Andre The Giant
Chief Jay Strongbow
Gorilla Monsoon
Freddie Blassie
Arnold Skaaland
Bobo Brazil
Buddy Rogers
Antonio Rocca
Ernie Ladd
Ivan Putski
Pedro Morales
George Steele
The Fabulous Moolah
The Grand Wizard
Killer Kowalski
Jimmy Valiant
Jimmy Snuka
Pat Patterson
Johnny Valiant
Mikel Scicluna
Captain Lou Albano
Vince McMahon Sr.

***

I kinda like they're throwing Pete Rose in there. It might the only hall of fame he ever gets into. I have a twinge of nostalgia for Sanata, Valentine and Muraco.

Still, where the hell is Bruno Sanmartino?



So sayeth Randy Stilton.

Alright Brain, you don't like me, and I don't like you. But lets just do this, and I can get back to killing you with beer.

He and Vince have Badd Blood, and he wasn't as receptive to the olive branch as Superstar Graham was.

I don't know about SD Jones (quickest Squash in wrestlemania history), but Iron Mike is the Greatest Jobber of Alltime and deserves to be in there.

And if you're not going to induct Iron Mike, how about just putting the loaded forearm protector in? You know, like when the baseball hall showcases a guy's bat or spikes from a momentus game. How about some love for the forearm protector?

Canada's Greatest Athlete, Iron Mike Sharpe, is already listed on:

The Canadian Pro Wrestling Page of Fame:
http://www.garywill.com/ wrestling/canada/sharpem.htm

and

The SLAM! Wrestling Canadian Hall of Fame:
http://slam.canoe.ca/ SlamWrestlingBiosS/sharpe_ironmike- can.html


I remember Bruno Sanmartino and Vince really biting into eachother on Larry King back when the sexual harrassment allegation were in the news. Does their bad blood go back to that time, or even further back?



So sayeth Randy Stilton.

Now that would kick major arse, we can have the forearm protector, Valentine's shin guard, hell even Virgil's face mask. Yes I said face masks, how could we forget, the one fuckinG NASA designed for Brutus Beefcake.

I don't really find much interest in who is not in, well I do, but we all know the reasons are all political. But how about who is in, Harley Race? Unfortunately the only times I got to see Harley Race, was in WWF; I know he beat JYD at WM3, I remember a wicked table spot with Hogan on SNME, WWF showing VERY weird pictures of his face in clouds every week that made me think he was dead, him being eliminated early in a couple survivor series, losing to Haku at the Royal Rumble...then he was gone. Yeah, Did he have a good run with them in the 70's that I am unaware of.

If Vince wants to extend the olive branch, why not induct them whether Bret shows or not? Even a man that proud would come if Owen and Stu were inducted too.

The Brooklyn Brawler really needs to be inducted.




There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

I gotta believe Harley's going in based on his NWA contributions, since Vince really only signed him to make him look bad.

I think putting Pete Rose in so that you can get a 20 second mention on ESPN with a "by the way, it's fixed" joke attached demeans all the other inductees. I know as wrestling fans we tend to just bend over and take it like whores, but come on. Let the hall of fame have a bastion of class.

For that reason alone, SD Jones belongs.

No Piper? No Orndorff? No Orton, Sr.? These guys were mainstays of the 80's. And Barry Horowitz leads the class on the "jobber ballot"...

I know that old-timers can and maybe should give me crap for this, but does Don Muraco REALLY deserve to be in there? He was a decent wrestler, but never really great, and after Wrestlemania I he was very average. Is he getting in because of the Snuka cage match or something?

This is one "Rock" who might not deserve his induction.



In 11 days, you will see the return of the Undertaker, the Dead Man that most of us have been clamoring for for years.

Also in 11 days, you will see most of us complain about the return of the Dead Man, the Dead Man that most of us have been clamoring for for years.

Don Muraco deserves in the Hall of Fame on two merits:

1) For being one of the great IC champions ever

but more importantly...

2) For giving us the comedy platinum (not gold, but PLATINUM) that was FUJI VICE~~~ and hopefully at least one of those segments ends up on the WM XX dvd.

Ok, since Muraco is one of my all time favorites, I have to ask...

What is Fuji Vice?

Ah, for the second time in a week, I get to kick it old school

Fuji Vice was a series of clips on the old Tuesday Night Titans talk/variety/clip show that the WWF used to run on USA Network. One of the running premises they used to have was Don Muraco and Mr. Fuji while Muraco was feuding with Hogan, going out to Hollywood as well to prove that he too could be an actor. The result was a mini-movie that the WWF produced entitled Fuji Vice, which was like Miami Vice...only with Muraco as Crockett and Fuji as Tubbs. The quality of the segment was so bad that it's fucking brilliant, since Muraco spends half the episode trying not to break up on camera and the other half was a contest between Muraco and Fuji as to who had the worse genuine acting skills.

It's on the "Best of TNT" video from Colesuem if you can ever find it...but just for the Fuji/Muraco segments it's highly reccomended.

That sounds like the greatest thing ever. I must go raid the old video store in town and find this.

All of Drew MacIntyre's losses since returning to Smackdown have been what you could call bad luck. Against Santino, he fell off the second rope and smacked his head on the ringpost. Against DiBiase last night, he crotched himself on the ropes.
