WWE's HOF will never be legit until guys left out like Macho Man and Owen Hart are inducted. Of course, they are not currently in because of circumstances relating to their exits from the company. Owen dying of course and Savage leaving. If it weren't for these issues, I could see both already being HOF'ers by now.

Is it just me or does bold seem like someone is yelling their post at the computer? That's just the funny visual I imagine. Sorry, back on post here....

That's quite the ultimatum you put towards the WWE. They will *never* be legitimate until Owen and Savage are in?

OK let's just take a closer look at that. First off wrestling is a work, so the word "legitimate" in relation to wrestling is always a little funny. Owen isn't in because his ex-wife owns his estate etc and won't allow it. But if I read your post correctly... you blame this on WWE and hold it against them. That makes zero sense.

Savage not being in? Savage is awesome, and of course he should be in but I find it funny that his absence takes away legitimacy. Back to that word again. Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold, Bruno Sammartino, Ric Flair, The Four Horsemen .... on and on and on. It's still not legitimate huh?

To each their own.

Well put. Of course, it's tough to measure legitimacy by the number of people who aren't in there, especially since the reasons for their exclusion have to be figured in.

Now that Bruno Sammartino has gone in, a circle has been completed, because if there's anyone who has to be in a wrestling organization's hall of fame, it's him. Keeping him out is like having an NBA Hall of Fame and excluding Michael Jordan. Of course, in Bruno's case, he kept himself out......but in Randy Savage's case, it might be the same. Despite speculation over the years, no one appears to truly know what happened that caused Macho Man to desert WWE. If it was just money....then, okay.....but it seemed as if Savage and Vince McMahon were tied at the hip back then and that his leaving was even more surprising than the three guys who formed the original NWO.

Through the years, Savage and McMahon were so close-mouthed about their parting that it was impossible to say whether Savage was refusing any attempt to induct him, or whether McMahon wouldn't allow it.

Yes, the Wrestlezone Hall of Fame is different than the WWE version, but it seems the reason for Savage being omitted are the same.....that is, when a performer of his magnitude is excluded, the factors we don't know might be more pertinent than what we do know.
