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.
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…
Another Japanese wrestler who is not well known to North American audiences (although he did have many matches here in the 70’s), Riki Choshu also was one of the top stars in Japan and was a constant fixture in the Heavyweight ranks there for decades.
Terry Taylor had a nice little career going for him.  He won many regional titles and was considered one of the better workers in professional wrestling; and then he went to the WWE.   Terry Taylor was dubbed the Red Rooster, and after a sub par heel run under the management of Bobby Heenan he went to gimmick hell with the…
Although we kind of found the “Skinner” character a guilty pleasure, it was hardly a reflection of the great career of Steve Keirn.
Dutch Mantel was a major star in the southern promotions throughout the 70’s and 80’s.  He wasn’t a tall or well built wrestler, but he had the art of wrestling psychology down and could always deliver a good match.  Mantel’s greatest gift to wrestling was what he did outside of the ring utilizing his mind as a booker (he has…
A lot of people only remember General Adnan as the Iraqi mouthpiece of Sgt. Slaughter during the former G.I. Joe pitchman’s run as an Iraqi sympathizer.  Adnan didn’t wrestle much during that final National run, but that wasn’t his role at the time.  With that said, Adnan wrestled a lot more in the past than most people realized.
A former professional Football player, Wilbur Snyder entered the pro wrestling ranks and made a mark for himself almost immediately.  Snyder competed primarily in the American Mid West and would eventually buy into the Indianapolis based WWA promotion.  While there, he was one of the top draws and constantly was holding championships there.  Although he was a former gridiron great,…
Quite often in the 1980’s, the WWE was able to take regional stars and break them into a National audience.  Dick Slater was not one of those fortunate ones, as the “E” totally whiffed on him turning him into a happy redneck nicknamed “The Rebel”.  Outside of Stamford, Slater was at his best as a rough heel, and he headlined…
The time that Eddie Gilbert spent in the WWF was largely uneventful.  He was basically a glorified jobber whose high water mark was getting destroyed by the Masked Superstar on television.  It wouldn’t be much longer after that he got to shine in smaller promotions and “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert really made people take notice.
Robert Fuller’s biggest national exposure was as the heel manager, Col. Robert Parker in WCW, but fans in Tennessee had watched Robert Fuller for well over fifteen years prior in the ring.  As the “Tennessee Stud”, Fuller ran rough shot throughout the South and even had a hand running the Continental Promotion for a spell.  Should Fuller ever get a…
Arguably the man who put Quebec on the map in terms of Professional Wrestling, Yvon Robert was a star in the business for three decades and is a former NWA World Heavyweight Champion.  Robert travelled across North America in his day and while he was based in Montreal, he would be known throughout the continent as a bona fide star.
Sam Muchnick was a major force in the creation of the National Wrestling Alliance in 1948 and in 1950 would serve as the President of the most important governing body in professional wrestling from 1950 to 1977 (with the exception of two years). Muchnick would preside over the St. Louis territory making it one of the healthiest in the United…
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…
One of the first to don the “Cowboy” monikers, Bob Ellis was actually a legitimate cowboy. Ellis was a rough customer who was part of sell outs all across the country, not to mention successful stints in Australia. He deliberately seemed to maintain a low profile after he left the industry, which may be why he is not held in…
There are many big men in wrestling and have been throughout its history.  The Spoiler may be the first really tall wrestler to show incredible agility and would foreshadow that larger men could move like men half their size.
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.
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.
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…
Although “Superstar” Bill Dundee was undersized and was rarely used in a National promotion, he was a huge star in the Memphis area and a great ally and foil of Jerry Lawler there.  The Superstar could be flashy, arrogant or modest depending on what character was needed in the area at the time.  His biggest taste on the big stage…
Do you remember the “Blow Away” diet starring “Playboy” Buddy Rose?  We do, and as funny as it was, this is not how we remember him.  In a profession with chiseled bodies, Buddy Rose stuck out like the proverbial sore thumb.  He was overweight, and later in his career was morbidly obese.  It has to be noted that regardless of…
