I don't see anything wrong with that list. It is nice to see Luna getting the recognition she deserves.

I really like this list! A who's who of my childhood. I won't disagree with any pick here.

The only complaint (actually more of a suggestion) I would have is that we are at the point where maybe the modern era needs to be split into the 80s boom period through say 1994 and then a Monday Night Wars era to present era needs to be added.

There are alot of Harold Baines on this list. I guess like in most HOF you'll run out of top quality elite stars after awhile.

Cora Combs was somewhat of a name in the 60s and 70s, but all the women were pretty much at the same level if they weren't Moolah back then. Her daughter was a indie wrestler, though. I can't see any explanation for including Debbie Combs in any wrestling HOF, not even the Combs family wrestling HOF.
