Eyes On WWE: 5 Wrestlers Who Should Be In The Hall Of Fame


By @Phranchize19


Wrestlemania weekend includes the pinnacle of wrestling in many ways, the WWE Hall Of Fame. WWE usually offers legends and others that were important to wrestling spots in the biggest hall of fame in wrestling. Thus far, WWE has inducted some of the best, but also some of the most undeserving people into their Hall Of Fame. I’m here to discuss today who I feel is overdue into the HOF. I will not include active competitors because we all know AJ Styles, The Undertaker, Goldust, among others will be there soon.

*Owen Hart



-Probably the most overdue induction. Owen Hart literally gave his life for WWF and that alone deserves induction. Owen was a charismatic grappler from the famed Hart family who made his mark on WWF after being given bad booking as the Blue Blazer and the partner of Koko B. Ware. Owen is a former European and Intercontinental Champion as well as one of the longest reigning tag team champions in history with his brother in law British Bulldog (more on him later), as well as Tag Team Champions with two other Hall Of Fame guys in Yokozuna and Jeff Jarrett. Owen also is one of the best King of the Ring winners in history. His lack of induction is really on his widow more than WWF so let’s hope she relents and allows her husband to be inducted properly.

*Demolition



-Before The New Day set the record for longest reigning Tag Champs ever, that record was held for some decades by Demolition. Ax and Smash are one of the greatest tag teams of all time and they are pioneers as well as three time WWF Tag team champions, so this induction hopefully will come soon.

*Dean Malenko



-This is probably the most underrated wrestler on this list. One of the greatest Cruiserweights (or junior heavyweights if you prefer this saying) of all time. Malenko is a 4 time Cruiserweight Champion in WCW as well as one of the few men to hold the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship, as well as a former US Champion and a Tag Champion with Chris Benoit. He is not only known for his contributions in the wrestling ring, but he is an accomplished trainer. Malenko has trained many wrestlers and helped them through their careers. Dean Malenko’s accomplishments are endless so he will hopefully be inducted in the HOF very soon.

*British Bulldog



-One of the greatest wrestlers of any generation. The British Bulldog’s career spans for decades. Bulldog began his career in the territory of Stu Hart (Bret and Owen Hart’s father) and married Stu’s daughter. Bulldog would then venture to WWF and form a tag team with The Dynamite Kid. They would become Tag Champs for 9 months and would be fired from WWF shortly after. Davey Boy would continue to compete in Canada and Japan until being called back to WWF as a singles wrestler. Bulldog would become an instant sensation by main eventing Summerslam with his brother in law Bret for the Intercontinental title (widely regarded as the best match in Summerslam history) and would main event many more PPVs, even as the European Champion. British Bulldog would be the first ever WWF European champion as well as hold the record for longest title reigns and most days as champion with 206 days and 253 days respectively. Bulldog would leave WWF to work for WCW on more than one occasion and would return back to WWF and win the Hardcore and European championship again. Bulldog would tragically pass away in 2002 but his wrestling legacy lives on as possibly the most famous British wrestler ever and he should be in the HOF one day.

*Chyna 



-A controversial selection to many but well deserved. Chyna would become the first woman to compete in the Royal Rumble and entered at number 30. A member of the famed D-Generation X, Chyna has a case to be inducted twice as a member of DX as well as her own career in which she is the first and only woman to win the Intercontinental Championship (on two occasions) as well as a former Woman’s champion. Chyna is a trailblazer and in a land of men, she stepped where no woman had gone before and excelled.
