People Being Overlooked On These WWE Hall of Fame Rumors
There have been many rumors on who will be inducted at this year's WWE Hall of Fame. Some, including me, suggested WCW superstars being inducted.
But since HBK has been inducted, and he is the headliner, we can remove the possibilities of people suggesting people like Goldberg, Sting, Randy Savage as they are too big of a headliner to be second pickings.
There are some that people have left out and should be in the possibility of being inducted at this year's event in Atlanta.
Paul Bearer has been around for years, from being in the indies working alongside the great Jim Ross, to being the person that introduced Undertaker to the world.
His weird look, voice and being a real funeral director added to his great character. He has been buried alive in cement, yet comes back with no explanation on how he rose from the cement, which should have instantly killed him.
But that is the great nature of our wrestling business; we do not need it, as fans were overly excited to see him back.
Just recently, we saw him in a Tom and Jerry style storyline with Edge and Kane where he gets kidnapped and Kane chases him around every week, only for him to be thrown over and unconscious on the floor below.
Oh well, his past has done him justice, and the guy does deserve to be inducted for being one of the true managers in the business.
Razor Ramon/Scott Hall
Although Scott Hall, aka Razor Ramon, was a big star, he would not overshadow HBK in this event. Would be fitting if he did get inducted and Kevin Nash did not this year, because Razor Ramon gave us exciting matches. His match with HBK in the first ever ladder match in history was amazing.
Then we have him go to WCW and start the Outsiders faction with Nash and then NWO and was considered one of the best at selling moves.
Although he had some issues with drugs and alcohol, he eventually went to rehab funded by WWE, and he became very clear minded and still has amazing passion for the business.
He should be inducted solely on his services for WWE/WCW and not what we saw in TNA. He is less likely to be inducted, and a lot of you may disagree but I believe there is a place for him, epecially when a parrot guy gets in (although this guy was one of the first black wrestlers to win a championship). Enough said.
As Sunny, Tammy Sytch was quite possibly the most captivating female professional wrestling fans had seen in years. Not only was Sunny beautiful, but she also had a dazzling charm with a bratty sassiness to match.
While in the WWF, Sunny became the manager of WWF Tag Team champions on two occasions. She also won two Slammy Awards, "Best Buns" and "Best Manager". She was the PWI Manager of the year in 1996 and became one of the America's most downloaded woman in that era.
Arn Anderson, part of the legendary faction Four Horsemen and an amazing pure wrestler who I am baffled was not inducted earlier. He is also one of the greats never to win a major World Championship, but he has given us so many great matches.
For example, the 1992 WCW WrestleWar PPV match with him, Rick Rude, Steve Austin, Bobby Eaton, and Larry Zbyszko vs. Nikita Koloff, Sting, Ricky Steamboat, Barry Windham, and Dustin Rhodes.
Normally we hate a 10-man tag match, as so much happens, but no real wrestling. This had everything, from in ring feuds to high spots to great in-ring wrestling. Arn and Zbyszko teaming up gave us some great matches also in the NWA, WCW and WWE.
He had the in-ring talent, was exciting to watch on interviews and he is already working for the WWE backstage, so why not induct the guy? It is long overdue.
Diamond Dallas Page (DDP)
The original People's Champion DDP, who is a big enough star not to overshadow HBK's induction but deserving to be put in there.
DDP started late in the wrestling business, but quickly became a fan favourite in the ring and outside and ended up winning the WCW TV Title, WCW Tag Team Titles on four occasions, the WCW US Title twice and the WCW World Heavyweight Championship three times, not forgetting the WWF Tag Team and European Championship.
The whole year of 1997 was amazing in WCW; other than the NWO, DDP and Randy Savage had a unforgettable feud. There was back and forth of so many different scenarios throughout the year and ultimately had a classic match.
And on top of that, the Diamond Cutter was one of the best moves in the business, as he can hit that move on any occasion, much like how Randy Orton's modified Diamond Cutter called RKO is.
He was awesome on the mic, and although the "stalking Undertaker's wife" storyline was a stupid way to introduce a big time wrestler like DDP into the WWE world, he still made it work somehow.
He and WWE are on very good terms, and with him rumored to be hosting the Best of Nitro DVD and signing up to a legends contract, we could see him being inducted this year at the home of WCW.
Ones Not To Be Forgotten: Random Thoughts
There may be a whole list of who should be in, who shouldn't and who has no chance.
Well, people like Haku, Rikishi, Ron Simmons, Billy Kidman, Dean Malenko and Sid deserve a mention and possibility into the Hall of Fame.
Then we have wrestlers who probably have no chance like Ultimate Warrior, Randy Savage and Bruno Sammartino, British Bulldog and Owen Hart (although dead), due to some differences or complications with Vince and/or Vince.
Randy Savage has gone into the headlines because he is in a WWE Video Game for over 18 years. And he had a WWE DVD out, a WWE action figure and being mentioned on WWE television when before he was a taboo.
But I do not see him being inducted if anything this year, because he is too big of a star to be inducted alongside HBK.
Although we have seen in 2006, for example, Bret Hart and Eddie Guerrero being inducted in the same year, I do see HBK with one other big star being inducted. In my opinion, Arn Anderson is that man.
