5 Wrestlers Who Should Be in the WWE Hall of Fame
This is a list that I've compiled that outlines five wrestlers who are currently not in the WWE Hall of Fame who have continued to be overlooked or have purposely been left out for various reasons.
These guys achieved most of their success within the WWF and have helped make the WWF popular.
I haven't included people who are still wrestling within the WWE or those wrestling in rival promotions like TNA. So no questions on why Shawn Michaels isn't on this list. Enjoy.
5.- Bam Bam Bigelow
While he didn't win any championships in the WWF, he is a wrestler who I believe should be inducted for several reasons.
He was one of the most versatile wrestlers in the WWF's history. For his size, he was one of the most agile wrestlers with a diverse skill set. He was also one of the most feared big men in the WWF.
In addition, he has been in the exclusive club of people who have helped headline a Wrestlemania.
4. Ted DiBiase
Ted DiBiase was one of the greatest heels in the history of the WWF. He also had one of the most popular gimmicks of all time. He was also a very skilled in-ring competitor.
He has headlined a Wrestlemania as well as the inaugural Summerslam, was the biggest bad guy at the height of the WWF's popularity in the 1980's and had some of the greatest feuds with the likes of Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage.
Accolades include holding the WWF tag titles on three occasions as well as King of the Ring.
3. The Ultimate Warrior
While the Ultimate Warrior wasn't one of the greatest in-ring competitors of all time, he did achieve a great deal of success in the WWF.
He has held the IC title and was the WWF champ in a time when the only person to really hold the title was Hulk Hogan.
He has also headlined a Wrestlemania title match and was one of the very, very few people who actually got a clean title win over Hogan.
2. The Rock
The reason I didn't have him on the top of my list is that there is a great chance that he will be inducted in the near future while the person on the top of my list doesn't seem likely to be inducted any time soon.
The Rock has done it all in the WWF. He became the youngest heavyweight champion in the WWF at the time and has held the WWF title seven times, holding the WWF title on more occasions than anyone else at the time. His title reigns were all when there was only one title in the company.
Among this, other accolades include winning the Royal Rumble, the IC title twice and the tag team title five times.
He was also one of the few wrestlers to have mainstream popularity, was the face of the WWF at the height of its popularity and has forged a successful acting career.
1. "Macho Man" Randy Savage
While The Rock has achieved more accolades, Randy Savage tops my list because as I mentioned he is unlikely to be inducted anytime soon and will continue to be the greatest wrestler to never be inducted.
Randy Savage was one of the most popular wrestlers in the history of wrestling. He had also achieved most of his success in the WWF. He was the WWF champ twice in a period where only Hogan really held the title. He has also headlined Wrestlemania on several occasions as well as the inaugural Summerslam PPV.
His popularity also was shown in other major promotions, having held the WCW title as well on four occasions. Other accolades include the IC title and King of the Ring.
Hope McMahon settles his vendetta with him and inducts him soon.
