Is this the WWE HOF?  If it is, Macho is already in there.


I'd like these:

- Lex Luger

- Hillbilly Jim

- Rick Rude

- Slick

- Demolition

- Zeus (Celebrity)

- Elizabeth

Randy Savage is already in.  Demolition would've already been in but there's this little lawsuit that they have against WWE right now, so no.

The next WM is in Florida, so this should be the year they put in The Rock, right?  In addition to that you need the old timey rassler local appeal, someone "new" for the younger demo mass appeal, and guys from the '80s-'90s for the middle age demo.  With that in mind, here are my picks, along with who I think WWE would have induct them because they're WWE:


The Rock (inducted by Roman Reigns)

Eddie Graham (inducted by Goldust)

Gordon Solie (inducted by Jim Ross)

Rick Rude (inducted by Shawn Michaels)

Daniel Bryan (inducted by John Cena)

British Bulldogs (inducted by Bret Hart)

Cyndi Lauper (inducted by Hulk Hogan)


They might want to wait to put in Bryan until they need his star power, so it might not make sense to put him in the same year as The Rock.  At the same time, you never know when that relationship will deteriorate beyond repair so maybe they should put him in while he's still with the company, because there's lots of tension there.

Anyway, this lineup would be a draw, IMO.

I really like this list.  Didn't they put Gordon Solie in already though?

Is Elizabeth already in, due to Savage? If not, I'd add her as her own entry.

Lord Alfred Hayes.

The Rock

Owen Hart, but I understand the Hart family isn't on the best terms with WWE.

Bruiser Brody

The Man Called... Virgil (sounds silly, but this is my "Koko B. Ware" pick)

Andy Kaufman as the celebrity inductee (but this class would then have three posthumous guys. Probably not cool. So maybe 1 of the 3).

Goldberg. Probably not coming back, full-time, so 2017 may be the year to throw him in, while he's still somewhat fresh in everyone's mind. Similar to Sting, last year.

X-Pac. Okay, just checking to see if you read this.

Ivan Koloff (inducted by Bruno Sammartino) is the biggest omission with the old-timey crew. Cyndi Lauper should have been in years ago. She was actually an integral part of the expansion.

The following names will, in all probability, be ineligible to be inducted because all of them are still currently involved with the class action lawsuit vs. WWE involving CTE:

CHAVO GUERRERO, SR., a.k.a. Chavo Classic


BRYAN EMMETT CLARK, JR., a.k.a. Adam Bomb


ANTHONY NORRIS, a.k.a. Ahmed Johnson


JAMES HARRIS, a.k.a. Kamala


DAVE HEBNER


EARL HEBNER


CHRIS PALLIES, a.k.a. King Kong Bundy


KEN PATERA


TERRY MICHAEL BRUNK, a.k.a. Sabu

I realize 95℅ of those guys don't deserve to be inducted to begin with. I'm just saying, that is the list of wrestlers who are not already in the WWE HOF. So if anyone has the above guys on their list, you can cross them off until the class-action lawsuit is settled.

Ivan Koloff's lawsuit against WWE was dropped (as was Billy Jack Haynes), but WWE sued him back. Not sure if WWE's suit against Ivan has been settled, but I highly doubt if Ivan is gonna go in anytime soon. Obviously, from at least a kayfabe perspective, Ivan deserves to be in.

Since this year's Mania is in Florida, I'm thinking on that flavor.

The Rock

Randy "Macho Man" Savage

The Rock 'N' Roll Express

Kevin Sullivan

Steve Keirn

The Poffo family (would be a condition of putting Randy in I'm sure)

Sable

Cyndi Lauper

How you gentlemen would rate The Mongols based only on drawing power?

My picks for this year would be The Rock, Ivan Koloff, Spiros Arion, and Ray Morgan.

Hey, The Rock can fill a HOF alone, so they can use him to get as many old guys as possible.

In 1970 they were white hot. The team headlined MSG once and Bepo got two shots against Bruno. Plus they held the International Tag Team Title for over a year which was rare for a tag team back then.
