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.
Born in Los Angeles, Duke Keomuka was one of many American born wrestlers of Asian descent who played an evil Japanese foreigner. 
A former World Heavyweight Champion, Hungarian, Sandor Szabo would become a legend in California where he was not just a multi-time champion but a booker and celebrity.
As of this writing, there has yet to be a referee inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, and we are not counting Teddy Long, who largely got in on his role as a manager and the Smackdown general manager.  If that ever happens, our vote is for Earl Hebner.
A legitimate tough guy, Hard Boiled Haggerty book ended a successful wrestling career with a couple of years in the National Football League and character roles in Hollywood.  Haggerty never did anything of note in the World Wrestling Federation, but he was very successful in the AWA, where he captured the one half of their tag straps in the early…
Scott Irwin spent a good time of his career teaming up with his brother Bill Irwin in various promotions either in a mask as the Super Destroyer in the South or as one half of the biker team, the Long Riders.  He was a tough customer who may not have been the most talented in the ring but looked like…
In some ways Ron Harris & Don Harris were a journeyman tag team, but the identical Harris Twins did have a certain level of success in the two largest wrestling promotions in North America. They were at their biggest in the WWE, as Skull & 8-Ball, members of, and then appropriated the name as the Disciples of Apocalypse. In WCW,…
Like Leilani Kai, for years Judy Martin could be counted on as a heel to always provide challenges in both singles and tags.  Martin would have many shots at the WWE Ladies Championship, but she will always be best known as one half of the Glamour Girls with Leilani Kai.
Like many “evil” Japanese wrestlers of the 1970’s, Tor Kamata was not actually from Japan, but was from Hawaii.
The father of all five of the Villanos (I through V), Ray Mendoza was a former boxer who would transition to a twenty-five year career in Lucha Libre.  Mendoza would be associated with the NWA Light Heavyweight Title for years and is one of the few wrestlers to have achieved near equal success as a face as he was as…
Balls Mahoney may be best known for being a “chair swinging freak in ECW” but he did spend time in the WWE twice and was a top guy for Jim Cornette’s Smoky Mountain Wrestling.  Mahoney was a hardcore icon and was actually a decent amateur wrestler but it was that style that got him over, and likely led to his…
Jose Estrada Sr. may be best known as an enhancement worker usually working the opening match putting over an up and coming baby face in arena cards for the WWE in the early 1980’s, but Estrada was actually a former title holder in the biggest wrestling promotion in the world.  Estrada was the Junior Heavyweight Champion, and though he failed…
While Hayabusa was not often seen in large wrestling promotions, the legend of the man born Eiji Ezaki cast a large shadow.
The son of the legendary Perro Aguayo, Perro Aguayo Jr. was born to be star in Mexico.
Al Madril was a fixture for years in Texas but while he was well known there, he appeared in multiple promotions up and down the Pacific.  Madril never was in the WWE, but his territorial work still holds a high place in many people’s memories.
A well travelled referee (including the WWE), Bill Alfonso will always be best known for his run in Extreme Championship Wrestling, where after a stint as a ref, he became a whistle blowing manager.
While the run of Tony Anthony in the WWE as T.L. Hopper and Uncle Cletus was not exactly stellar, “The Dirty White Boy” had a long and prosperous career as a single and in tag teams throughout the America South.  Perhaps his best run was in Smoky Mountain Wrestling where he was the promotion’s Heavyweight Champion three times.
While younger readers may remember Jamie Noble as one half of J&J Security, we here at Notinhalloffame.com recall him as a technical machine that could always deliver good matches in the ring and was a technical marvel.  Noble is a former WWE Cruiserweight Champion and would later become a champion in Ring of Honor, and defeated no less than CM…
The gimmick of the Disco Inferno was a goofy one, there is no denying that, but you have to credit Glenn Gilberti for always injecting new life into it so that it could last six years in a solid mid-card role in WCW.
Best known for her long run in the World Wrestling Federation in the 1980’s, Velvet McIntyre was a good face female wrestler who was one of the better high flyers of her day.  Wrestling barefoot, McIntyre received numerous title shots, and actually was a champion for a week, albeit in an unacknowledged one week run on a tour in Australia.
A champion across North America, Sweet Daddy Siki found his home in Toronto where he would become a local icon.  Siki was not the most decorated wrestler, but he was a flamboyant performer who was influential for many performers, black and white.
