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.
Best known for his role as the foreign heel manager, General Skandor Akbar, the man born as Jimmy Webha was actually a native Texan.
An anti-establishment star before anyone really knew what that was; Sputnik Monroe was considered to be the most interesting character of the Memphis territory, which may say it all! Monroe was surly, a heavy drinker, and a unique looking figure with his gruff exterior and shock of white hair down the middle of his head.
Possibly the toughest female wrestler of any generation, Akira Hokuto was also damn good.  She made sporadic appearances in the United States, but her matches are still sought after on YouTube and her legend continues to grow.  Japanese female wrestling may not have the luster it once had, but to those who followed it, Hokuto is considered its queen.
When Bret Hart mentioned on a recent Legends of Wrestling Roundtable that the best wrestler to come out of Canada was the Stomper, Archie Gouldie, the rest of the panel thought it was a real stretch.  It may still be, but the more you think about it the accomplishments of Gouldie, it isn’t as far out of leftfield as originally…
(Noriyo Tateno & Itsuki Yamazaki)It is not argued that there were not athletic women in wrestling before the Jumping Bomb Angels; there most certainly was.  However, this was this female Japanese duo that became showcase moves that were not seen on American television before; by either men or women!  They were able to get over with the WWF audience despite…
At the top of the card for years in Mexico and the border states, Alfonso Dantes was a tank of a wrestler (hence his nickname of El Tanque) and was also a second generation performer.  Dantes was predominantly a heel and the unmasked wrestler (not exactly common in Mexico) feuded with every top star in Mexico in his day.  He…
A huge NBC executive best known for his work in the Sports and Late Night divisions, Dick Ebersol was the producer for the Saturday Night’s Main Event series that became an unexpected smash hit for both the WWE and NBC.  Ebersol was not a “paper” producer and by bringing professional wrestling back to network television proved to be a huge…
Hiro Matsuda was a very good wrestler and fairly successful both Japan and in the Florida territory.  Like other Japanese wrestlers, he played the stereotypical foreign heel and fans delighted in booing him.  However, it was not his in ring performances that he is most known for.  His contributions as a Professional Wrestling trainer is really what made Matsuda valuable…
Some of you may be aware of the story that Vince McMahon Jr. took over as the lead announcer for the then named World Wide Wrestling Federation when his father let the existing one go over a pay dispute. The man he took over for was Ray Morgan, the original voice for the Capitol Sports Promotion and the man who…
Although Mark Lewin never really had much to do with the WWE, he had a twenty five year plus career that saw him acquire many belts over many territories.  Lewin’s start in wrestling actually dates back to the late 50’s and with his good looks he was a natural for the baby face role.  Like so many wrestlers, Lewin wanted…
Many foreign heels in wrestling are not foreign at all.  Lawrence Simon was one such athlete, but as opposed to playing the role with a shaved head and little words, he developed a character named Boris Malenko with multiple levels that was more sinister than stereotypically foreign.
The father of current WWE Superstar, Alberto Del Rio, was an outstanding wrestler in his own right.  The masked Caras (and brother of Mexican legend Mil Mascaras) was one of the larger wrestlers in Mexico and considered by many to one of the best true Heavyweights to come out of Mexico.
Torrie Wilson may not have been much of a wrestler, but when you look like her, you didn’t have to be. With her sexuality, personality and All-American good looks, she was one of the best valets ever in a major wrestling promotion regardless of whether she was a heel or face. Very few women could pull that off.
Originally ranked by Notinhalloffame.com separately, the Moondogs (Spot, Rex and King) have been grouped together and maybe it is this combination that could see these men have a shot at the WWE Hall of Fame.
The brother of Dr. Tom Prichard, Bruce Prichard started working behind the scenes with the WWE in 1986, though he was often used as an announcer.  Prichard would come up with the persona of “Brother Love”, a play off real life televangelists.  Brother Love would be a regular character for three years on WWE Television, but backstage, he would emerge…
There are really two careers of Shirley Crabtree, the first where he was a giant chested heel who taunted the crowd with his strength and good looks. He did well, but it paled to what he did after his near decade sabbatical from the business. He returned with the same gigantic chest, though his midsection was considerably large too. He…
This one could be a little bit complicated.Following World War II, the idea of evil German or Japanese wrestlers worked, and there were many that succeeded.  The Von Brauners however, go down in history as the most successful tag team of that ilk.
Umaga should not be on this list.  Not because he didn’t have a good career, but because he should still be alive competing and enjoying his life.  From a family of wrestling royalty (the Anoa’i clan), Eddie Fatu first hit the WWE as one half of the Three Minute Warning with his cousin.  The pair started off with a bang,…
The first WWWF Heavyweight Champion, Buddy Rogers was an early entry to the WWE Hall of Fame, which he should have been. Rogers had a manager, Bobby Davis, who was his “Bobby Heenan”, though he is not remembered nearly on the same level.
The first time that Tom Prichard arrived in the WWE it was as one half of the Heavenly Bodies with Jimmy Del Ray.  It took the “Doctor” a long time to get there as he toiled in the Indies, the USWA and Smoky Mountain in numerous roles for over fifteen years.  By the time he reached the National stage it…
