(Hopefully CRZ will indulge me this list thread!)

Yesterday The Dan LeBatard Show with Stugotz (790theticket.com) had Hacksaw Jim Duggan on. He talked about his Hall of Fame induction and they made some jokes about how his 2x4 should also get into the Hall of Fame.

That led to the guys spending a huge chunk of the show talking about which props from the world of wrestling would make it into a hypothetical Wrestling Prop Hall of Fame. Pretty fun show overall, although I felt that LeBatard was just plain wrong on some things. For example, Dan would put in Macho Man's feather boa but would leave out the Road Warriors' shoulder pads. They also talked about a hypothetical Wrestling Body Part Hall of Fame (which, if you've ever heard the show, is typical of their sense of humor).

So. What would YOU put in? My lists (which includes some stuff they mentioned):

Wrestling Prop Hall of Fame:
Hacksaw's 2x4
Jake's snake, Damien
Road Warriors' shoulder pads
Bret Hart's shades
Cornette's tennis racket
Undertaker's urn (LeBatard somehow said no to this)
Mr. Perfect's gum
DiBiase's Million Dollar belt
Razor Ramon's toothpick
Al Snow's Head
The Mountie's shock stick
Johnny B. Badd's Badd Blaster*

Wrestling Body Part Hall of Fame:
The Rock's eyebrow
George Steele's tongue
Hogan's pythons
Lex Luger's steel-plated forearm
Bam Bam Bigelow's head

* okay that one might just be in MY hall of fame

The Coal Miner's Glove deserves a spot. I'm not sure that any one-off, semi-unplanned prop has ever garnered more notoriety.

The Barber Shop window would probably deserve a spot as well, even if almost everyone has misremembered exactly how CRZ was launched through it.

Also, while there have been many briefcases throughout the annals of professional wrestling, there is only one Briefcase. Maybe it can be inducted by whoever rai.... never mind.

Jimmy Hart's megaphone, Mr. Fuji's cane, Paul E. Dangerously's cell phone....really, just about any well-known manager's trademark foreign object

I couldn't decide whether it should be in the Prop HoF or the Body Part HoF... so I put it in neither.

The LeBatard guys inducted Jimmy Hart's megaphone and "a foreign object" which I thought was clever. They also came up with Piper's coconut (although there was argument over if it should be Piper's or Snuka's), Hogan's torn shirt, and a neck brace - Bobby Heenan's, not Andy Kaufman's.

Is Hip Hop Rikishi too new school for his ass to be inducted into the Body Part HoF? What about Mr. Ass? Or hell, Vince McMahon's ass (of The Kiss My Ass Club fame) might garner some votes. I promise I'm not intentionally trying to turn this into the Wrestling Ass Hall of Fame.

Triple H's hammer is so ubiquitous, it's one of the four standard foreign objects in the THQ wrestling games.

In a somewhat related story, there is a rumor going around that Tampa Bay may end up getting the actual HOF. It would sorta make sense since a lot of wrestlers live there and it would be easy them to do signings there. FCW is also there as well. Personally, I would do it in New York or just buy the Pontiac Silverdome if its still for sale and turn it into a HOF as well as maybe a current place for one of the big four. I would add the following:

A few of Miss Elizabeth's dresses
King Macho Man's crown
Shawn's heartbreak kid outfit
Flair's mink coat
The Horsemen Limo
Hogan's cross that Andre ripped
A few empty beer cans from Austin
One of Rock's $5,000 shirts and sunglasses
Papa Shango's skull
Kane's mask
Mankind's mask
Taker's original outfit with the purple tie
Cena's dog tags
Edge's Rated R belt
Goldust's outfit
Owen's Slammeys
One of Eddie's cars preferably not the one they blew up.

I said before in an earlier thread that while I like both guys I don't think they have good matches together. HHH was said to have been complaining about Jericho's workrate days after he came to the WWF.
