The WWE Hall of Fame is one of the most controversial topics in professional wrestling.
It it supposed to honor the greatest performers the business has ever seen, but whether or not it actually does that is certainly up for debate.
You've got guys like "Macho Man" Randy Savage and Owen Hart still waiting to get in the Hall, while it is already filled with people who've had a minimal impact on pro wrestling.
It's truly a shame that there is no legitimate voting process for the Hall (like most major sports) because it has resulted in some very questionable names getting in.
Here are the 10 most ridiculously out of place inductees in the WWE Hall of Fame.
Baron Mikel Scicluna was a solid performer during his career that lasted from the late 1950s to the early 1980s.
But WWE Hall of Fame-worthy? Not quite.
Scicluna had a memorable gimmick as a Maltese royal and was known for using foreign objects and selling his ear like crazy, but his accomplishments in the ring are often embellished.
While he had high-profile feuds and matches with the likes of Bruno Sammartino, Gorilla Monsoon and Pedro Morales, Scicluna was known for being nothing more than a glorified jobber in these bouts, generally playing second fiddle to the bigger stars.
A good portion of Scicluna's WWWF career was actually spent in the tag team division, where he held the tag team titles just twice.
Though there are certainly wrestlers out there who had worse careers than Scicluna, he did nothing in particular that establishes him as a wrestling legend along the likes of Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair.
Arnold Skaaland broke into the business as a wrestler, but after a forgettable career in the ring, he moved on to other aspects of the business.
Skaaland became a shareholder of the Capitol Wrestling Corporation, and he eventually found his way into a behind-the-scenes role as a producer for WWWF shows.
He also served as a pretty successful manager, managing the likes of Bob Backlund and Bruno Sammartino while they were World champions.
However, Skaaland seems to have been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame because he made minor contributions in multiple areas.
Rather than excelling as a wrestler, producer/agent and/or manager, he was just kind of OK at each role, but apparently that is enough to get a spot in the Hall.
Skaaland is the start of a slippery slope, though, because he's helped open the door for other mediocre talent to join the WWE's elite class of legends.
The Valiant Brothers (Jimmy and Johnny) had the great advantage of being around at the right time.
In the 1970s, there wasn't much to the WWWF's tag team division, which allowed them to hold the company's tag team titles for more than a year. They were one of the few legitimate tag teams around and had very few challengers during their reign.
Still, the Valiant Brothers didn't manage to do much else after that year-long run with the WWWF tag team titles.
After debuting in the company in 1974, they had split up by 1980 and did virtually nothing as singles competitors after going their separate ways.
Had the Valiant Brothers debuted in the 1980s instead of the 1970s, I'm not sure they would have mattered very much, if it all.
There are several notable tag teams who still haven't gotten into the WWE Hall of Fame who had much better careers than the Valiant Brothers, such as the Rock 'n' Roll Express.
James Dudley probably isn't a name that rings a bell with most of you folks, which is exactly the problem.
Dudley worked for Jess McMahon (Vince's grandfather) way back in the 1950s, performing various different tasks for the WWWF, and he continued to do so for Vince McMahon by driving his limousine and working as his bodyguard.
One can assume, however, that Dudley's induction into the WWE Hall of Fame stems from his early days working as a TV producer for Jess.
That's all fine and dandy, but I'm just not sure what made Dudley so special.
There have been countless guys who've worked for the WWWF (or WWE) in roles similar to Dudley's, yet none of them are in the Hall of Fame.
While we can only speculate, it appears that the McMahons' fondness of Dudley played a large role in his induction, even if he was a critical part of the company's production team.
Koko B. Ware was famous for two reasons: his ridiculous ring name and the huge macaw he brought with him to the ring.
But his career was not one that was marked by main events and World titles. It was one remembered primarily for his jobbing.
Though Ware had some initial success in the WWF upon his debut in 1986—the younger crowd really loved him, kind of like John Cena—he almost instantly became nothing more than an enhancement talent.
Besides his brief run as a a tag team with Owen Hart in 1992, Ware was used almost exclusively to make other stars look good until his WWF career ended in 1994.
There's nothing wrong with that. Heck, I'd job if I could be on TV every week and make some money, too.
But a career spent as an enhancement talent does not translate to a spot in the WWE Hall of Fame.
The highlight of Johnny Rodz' career was a match with Bob Backlund in Madison Square Garden back in the 1960s.
Other than that? Rodz was the mayor of Jobberville.
He spent roughly the next 20 years in the WWWF, but he was used as a jobber about 99 percent of the time, never winning so much as one singles title in the company.
Although jobbers certainly serve their purpose, it's hard to justify putting Rodz in the WWE Hall of Fame.
Rodz has had a successful post-in-ring career as a wrestling trainer—training the likes of Taz, Brother Ray, Brother Devon and Tommy Dreamer, among others—but that doesn't mean he's worthy of a spot in the Hall.
Rodz was a lower-card worker at best, and if he can get in the Hall of Fame, then it seems like just about anyone can.
Pete Rose, I hate you.
It is because of you, the first celebrity inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame, that we could see other D-list celebrities enter the Hall in the near future.
Rose is, of course, known in the WWE world for his "feud" with Kane between 1998 and 2000.
During that span, Rose served as the guest ring announcer for Kane vs. The Undertaker at Wrestlemania XIV and had several other notable appearances for the company, all of which ended with either a chokeslam or Tombstone piledriver at the hands of "The Big Red Monster."
Rose's appearances were actually somewhat entertaining (especially if you hate Rose), but not exactly Hall of Fame-worthy.
He did take those Tombstones like a champ, though.
Bob Uecker is a great baseball announcer, as evidenced by his induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2001.
I take nothing away from him for his contributions to the MLB, but just because he's well known in the baseball world doesn't mean he deserves a spot in the WWE Hall of Fame, too.
Yet, he inexplicably got one.
Uecker served as the ring announcer for the main event match between Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant at Wrestlemania III and as a backstage interviewer at Wrestlemania IV (which is where that great picture stems from),
But, like in the case of William Perry, there's no way in hell that a WWE appearance or two should result in a spot in the Hall, even if it is just the "Celebrity Wing."
Next thing you know, Al Sharpton will be there, too.
In my opinion, celebrities have no business in the WWE Hall of Fame, unless they have some sort of lasting impact on the company.
As you might imagine, none of them really have.
William "Refrigerator" Perry is a Hall of Famer, but the extent of his WWE career was one appearance in a battle royal featuring WWE superstars and NFL players back at Wrestlemania 2.
Yeah, that's it.
So, what I gather from Perry's induction is that you only need to wrestle one match to make it into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Yes! I'm only one match away from achieving my dream.
Drew Carey has absolutely no business being in the WWE Hall of Fame.
Whereas someone like Pete Rose or Bob Uecker at least had multiple memorable moments with the company, Carey's lone appearance on WWE TV came when he was an entrant in the 2001 Royal Rumble.
I've never found Carey to be remotely funny or entertaining, so you can only imagine how much it irks me to see him in the WWE's elite class of legends.
No one who isn't trained to wrestle and has made only one WWE appearance should be elected to the WWE Hall of Fame under any circumstances.
It's a slap in the face of the guys who worked their tails off to get there, not to mention the ones who aren't there but definitely should be.
