WWE: Current WWE Superstars Who Are Borderline Hall of Famers
We are currently on the road to WrestleMania, and one part that I always enjoy is the new WWE Hall of Fame class.
The WWE, like many sports, has a rich history that means so much to the present. So many superstars have paved the way for the company to be where it is today.
In return, the WWE honors those people by inducting them into their hall of fame. It is the highest honor anyone in the professional wrestling industry can receive.
This had me thinking. Which current WWE superstars are going to be inducted into the hall of fame one day?
Here we will look at which current superstars are locks to get in and which are borderline.
Locks for the Hall
William Regal has been a journeyman for the WWE. He has done a nice job getting young talent over and acting as a mentor.
Regal has been wrestling since 1983, when he was 15 years old. In his career, he has won more than 60 titles worldwide, including four in the WCW and 13 in the WWE.
That is a very impressive resume.
However, the one thing that goes against Regal is the fact that he has never been a world champion.
You would think that, with the amount of years Regal has put in and his good relationships within the locker room, he would have a good chance of one day being inducted.
Mark Henry has been with the WWE since 1996 and has had his share of ups and downs. He has been put in some angles that made him look like a joke but also some angles that made him look like the most dominating person in the company.
Despite being with the WWE for so long, Henry had only held two belts prior to 2011. He was the European champion in 1999 and the ECW champion in 2008.
It's weird to think that he has never held the Intercontinental Championship or Tag Team Championship or any other belt.
Then, just as his character was getting stale and it looked as if Henry's run with the WWE was going to come to an end, he turned heel.
Henry turned heel in 2011 and opened up the Hall of Pain.
He has gotten a strong push from this new angle, which led to him winning his first World Heavyweight Championship. Henry recently returned after a nine-month absence and the Hall of Pain is back open.
Despite almost 20 years with the company, Henry is a borderline Hall of Famer. He is currently in the best run of his entire career, and if he can win the World Heavyweight Championship one more time, it might be enough to solidify his induction.
Christian broke on to the WWE scene in 1998 as a member of the Brood, alongside WWE Hall of Famer and close friend, Edge.
Edge and Christian would eventually become one of the most successful tag teams in WWE history. In total, Christian has held the World Tag Team Championship nine times.
Christian has also been able to have a successful career as a singles competitor.
However, Edge's superior success as a singles competitor overshadows some of the success that Christian has had.
In my opinion, Christian is absolutely a Hall of Famer. Unfortunately, his departure to TNA was during his prime years and may have cost him some more gold in the WWE.
Christian is a four-time Intercontinental Champion, two-time ECW Champion and two-time World Heavyweight Champion.
Add those accomplishments to the impact he had with Edge, and Christian is a Hall of Famer.
