What makes a hall of fame career? Well the only thing that comes to mind is one thing, and one thing only and that's called "kissing Vince McMahon's ass". I can't remember who said it, but they said that the WWE HoF is the real "kiss my ass club".

Hmm... Being a draw or kissing ass, you can't go wrong with either one. Loyalty is a plus, but that might fall under kissing ass... Contribution to the company too, I think. Relevance to pro wrestling as well, but that's a two-sided coin with valid points on both sides of the argument.

The WWE Hall Of Fame is not meant to be exclusive. Anyone who made a memorable impact in WWE (or pro wrestling as a whole) will eventually wind up in the Hall. Each year's class generally contains a couple of top-tier names, a couple of 'mid-card' names, a couple of 'historical' names, and one celebrity.

And I say there's room for all of them. What's wrong with a large Hall? Does it diminish Hulk Hogan's career if Koko B. Ware is standing next to him in the Hall? Why?

And that's not even getting into the 'I can't believe DREW CAREY is in the Hall of Fame WTF!!!' crowd. It's the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall Of Fame, a sideshow of famous people who've been involved in memorable WWE moments. WWE makes it pretty clear these people aren't 'proper' Hall Of Famers.

Anyone who made a huge impact or was important to the wrestling universe.
Guys who are active right now like The Undertaker, Triple H, Kane, Christian, John Cena, Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle, Sting or Jeff Hardy will be there in time for sure. They all have earned their spots in the HOF.
I don't know why other legends like Randy Savage haven't been inducted yet

If you're speaking about actual wrestling, I'd say you have to meet most of the following criteria:

- Been a polarizing figure in the industry.
- Made Vince/WWE a ton of money
- Held numerous championships
- Been one of the top guys in the territories or the big companies back in the day
- Been an innovator in the industry in terms of style, marketability and popularity.
- Have wrestled for WWE or one of the folded companies that it owns the rights to (WCW, World Class, AWA, etc.)
- Die while working for WWE and not have committed heinous crimes while employed with WWE.
- Didn't piss off Vince McMahon at some point in your career. (coughcoughMachoMancoughcoughWarrior)


Be a mediocre B- or C-list celeb who needs money and is willing to get choke slammed, tombstone'd or some other form of public humiliation by Vince in order to sell/promote something.

But, as we all know, the WWE HOF is very politically driven. Vince picks who Vince wants, hence the "celebrity" wing. There are some great names in there, but it's not a true "Hall of Fame" based solely on wrestling merit because a wrestling company owns it.

What SHOULD qualify as a Hall of Famer:
Someone was seen in most of his career on T.V., Is remembered even when he leaves, actually fights in more than 1 MATCH.

What DOES qualify Hall of Famers in WWE
Anything, and I dont really like it. Lets face it, Hornswoggle will likely make it into the WWE Hall of Fame. (Soak that in for a minute.) Guys like Cena, HHH, Taker of course should get in. Guys like Kofi Kingston, Santino, and Jack Swagger should be the lower guys in. HORSNWOGGLE should not.

The WWE Hall of Fame is becoming a mess and I care less and less about who gets in or who doesn't. Abdullah the Butcher should never have been inducted and I know they have a separate section for the celebrities but none of them should be in it either. It makes me throw up to think of how much Vince cares about the entertainment part of the WWE these days. Even going so far as to tell his employee's to not use the word "wrestling" anymore. Vince you did great things for the WWE but now it's time to retire before you fuck it up even more.

For me I think to get in the Hall of Fame it just takes being loyal to the company for years and being a great worker. Titles don't matter as much anymore. Shawn Michaels only won the WWE Championship 3 times but a lot of people call him the greatest in WWE history including me.

positive impact on the business. to me, that is the main thing. being a jobber for 30 years does not mean you are worthy to be in the hall of fame. a lot of the people who go in do so because it is good for business - vince is trying to make a deal with someone so he says he will put so-and-so into the hall of fame. just look at the people who are not int he hall of fame and that tells you how it is run. you have Hogan but no Savage, Austin but no Rock, Flair is in there twice but what about Bischoff? all three of those guys changed the industry for the better, their peers are in the hall of fame but they are not.

Honestly I was worried that they would just throw anyone and everyone in the HoF but it seems they have slowed down a lot so I think they have upped their standards. Of course guys like Tyson and Drew Carey are going to be put it in. They walked in for a short amount of time and improved ratings and I mean it always helps when a celebrity shows that he enjoys the WWE.

I would like to see the HoF toned down a bit, maybe 2 superstars per year since before you know it they may feel obliged to just throw anyone in to make the ceremony last longer. Hell, even take a year off or something. Theres a lot of candidates obviously but if they don't spread it out more then the HoF will be a joke.

Also, lol @ Hornswoggle. If he gets in I doubt people will be able to take it seriously anymore.
Top 5;
1). CM Punk
2). Chris Jericho
3). Daniel Bryan
4). Antonio Cesaro
5). Dean Ambrose
