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 criteria of our own which did incorporate (in no particular order) impact, ability, innovation championships won, legacy and their use in the WWE. The only rule we set was that the wrestler in question was not currently an active competitor on a full time basis.

Until Then, Whatcha gonna do when Notinhalloffame.com runs wild on you!
 
Sincerely,
 
The Not in Hall of Committee.
On of the top stars of the 1960’s was Bill Miller, but despite his vast accomplishments has been largely forgotten.  The former Ohio Buckeye entered the world of pro wrestling in his early 30’s and while in the AWA he became on of the few chosen to wear the AWA World Heavyweight Championship.  Miller would later be a top contender…
El Canek may not have made a dent in the United States, but he was the primary star for Mexico’s UWA promotion for nearly two decades.  As the multiple Heavyweight Title holder for UWA, Canek holds victories over a diverse group of Lou Thesz, Vader, Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant.  In fact, he is one of the few who…
The figurehead President of the World Wrestling Federation, Jack Tunney would show up occasionally on television, make a mandate or discipline a wrestler and would disappear until he was needed again. He was never the actual President, but was the Toronto promoter for the WWF and that territory grew exponentially under him. As the on screen authority figure, Tunney was…
The winner of the first J Crown Championship made a lot of impact in World Championship Wrestling winning titles there as well.  Dragon was rare in that he was a Japanese wrestler who sought to develop his skills in Mexico.  After becoming a star there, he returned to Japan ready to conquer Asia.  After Japan, it was only a matter…
Although the focus of the female portion of the Rock and Wrestling era centered on Cyndi Lauper, The Fabulous Moolah and Wendi Richter, people forget that it was Leilani Kai who worked the secondary Wrestlemania main event against Richter.  Kai was the dependable worker called upon when needed which would later be shown when she was paired with Judy Martin…
Jim Johnston may not be a name that is known well among the fans of the WWE, but his work certainly is. Johnston has been the main composer for WWE music and entrance themes for well over two decades. Indirectly, it could be argued that Johnston as responsible for more pops, as when his music hits, fans immediately know who…
When you think of Jacques Rougeau usually two things will come to mind.  The first is his excellent tag teams with his older brother Raymond and later with Pierre Ouelette.  The second (and our personal favorite) was his work as the evil law enforcement officer, The Mountie.  Regardless of which incarnation you think of the end result was a competent…
Possibly the only Olympic winner (Bronze in Judo at the 76 Olympics) in Professional Wrestling history to have that accolade ignored, Allen Coage found far more fame as a wrestler than he ever did in Judo competition.
Saddled with one of the worst gimmicks in WWE history (which says a lot), Bob Holly was going nowhere as the happy race car driver, Thurman “Sparky” Plugg.  As the Attitude Era emerged, Holly was allowed to develop a more hardcore style thus becoming the aptly named Hardcore Holly.  Holly’s take no prisoners attitude seemed like a natural fit and…
His appearance on WWE television may have been a brief and forgettable appearance as Mr. Perfect’s manager, Coach, but in Los Angeles, John Tolos was a brutally savage wrestler who was a title taking machine in the West Coast.  The Golden Greek was feared and the rough style he showed was often imitated by others.  Tolos captured numerous titles as…
Long before there was Goldust, there was “Exotic” Adrian Street who pushed the sexual boundaries like no other had before.  His character wasn’t just flamboyant, as he played the part of a tough transvestite bedecked with glitter, pigtails and the most garish makeup this side of Gene Simmons.  He created a persona designed to make fans uncomfortable and likely executed…
Masa Saito was not your typical Japanese wrestler.  Many of them will never compete outside of Japan, and those that do may do so only for a run or two in the United States.  Saito competed often in the U.S. for various promotions often competing in tag teams with other foreign born heels.  Saito was a compact powerhouse with a…
The majority of wrestling fans who remember seeing King Curtis Iaukea would remember him as the mouthpiece for Kamala during his 1987 run and later as the figurehead leader of the unintentionally comical Dungeon of Doom in the mid 90’s.  Prior to his managing stint, Iaukea was one of the most feared wrestlers and wreaked havoc in various promotions in…
Like many who became premier managers in wrestling, Gary Hart first donned the tights as an in ring competitor.  His career as a wrestler may have been uneventful, but he made his impact as a manager and behind the scenes player especially in the World Class territory where he was the long time booker.  Hart would also lead a heel…
There have been a plethora of excellent wrestlers from the United Kingdom, but few of them have made a serious dent in the American Market.  Dave Findlay was one of those rare exceptions; a fact that becomes even more remarkable as he really didn’t make an American impact until his late 30’s.
“Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig is justifiably in the WWE Hall of Fame.  Curt’s father, Larry “The Ax” Hennig had quite the career himself predominantly in his home state of Minnesota.  In the 1960’s, Hennig was one half of the AWA World Tag Team Champions, three of which he held with the legendary Harley Race.  He would however suffer a severe…
Not that anyone really came close to giving Vince a run in the 80’s, but if anyone had to be picked it would have been Jim Crockett Jr. who made an attempt to expand his territory and made a dent into pay per view.  Although he was eventually unsuccessful, the matches and programs in his territory were among the most…
As one of the many strong muscle bound wrestlers in the WWF during the 80’s, Hercules Hernandez still managed to stand out.  Anyone with the moniker of “Hercules” better have the physique to back it up.  Thankfully, that was not an issue for the man who gained his greatest fame as a member of the Bobby Heenan family.
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 business.  She was compact, strong…
The father of Jeff Jarrett had a lot more impact in the world of wrestling than casual fans realize.  Jerry Jarrett was a top star in the Memphis territory holding multiple championships in the Volunteer State, but he slowly worked his way into to becoming a promoter, and by the decade’s end, ran one of the tightest organizations.  Jerry “The…
