    Some wrestlers should know when to hang up the boots and call it a day.

    This is the Hall Of Shame just for them.

    If you induct someone, please include videos/pics to show how far over the hill they are.

    Edit: Any inductees into the HOS must still be actively wrestling in 2017. They must also be unable to perform at a standard that would be considered acceptable by a sane and reasonable person with a basic understanding of what a half decent pro wrestling match looks like.

    The first inductee is the guy who was actually the inspiration for the Hall Of Shame being created........I saw this video a few days ago and it made me feel legit pity for the guy.

    I don't know about you, but I don't watch wrestling to feel sorry for the performers that way. I also highly doubt it is the way these once proud athletes would want to be remembered.

    Inductee #1 is Nikolai Volkoff.

    This guy was a beast in the 80s, but look at him now.

    <{dayum}>



    Why is he embarrassing himself like this for a few dollars? Where is his pride?

    Inductee # 2 Justin Credible

    Inductee # 3 The Sandman

    Sandman looks sober now but he's aged a hell of a lot over the last few years.

    Credible looks dreadful too. He appears to be turning into Tod Gordon.

    'Handsome' Jimmy Valiant




    If this trainee corpse insists on still wrestling, then he should be forced to compete in hardcore deathmatches or something.

    I want to see him powerbombed through a 10ft stack of flaming barbed wire boards.

    So you wanna be a wrestler do you old man? Then you need to be taking these kind of bumps......

    Sorry mate but that's not Val Venis.

    It's a guy called Vic Venis.

    I remember that pic from a few years ago when it started circulating and I remember the mix up.

    Here's a clearer photo of his face.....

    We can still induct this uncreative lard ass if you want though.

    Edit: Actually we can't because Vic Venis is not a has-been. He is a never-was <Eek2.0>

    I respect the hell out of the Funks, but Dory shouldn't be wrestling at his age.

    Inductee #10

    Dory Funk Jr.



    Saito is the only guy in there that looks half decent. So Kabuki and Fuchi just made the list too.

    Tito Santana was one of my favorites growing up, a real mid-card great.
    But he was hurting as El Matador and sad squeezing back into his pants to do a one-off when Jeff Jarrett did his legend-killer shtick in WCW.

    Well it's funny you should mention 'Double J'.

    Because he's the next inductee.

    Can Virgil technically be a has been? Wouldn't he be a never was?

    I was thinking about this last night.....

    I was thinking I should put Ian Rotten in the HOS because he certainly needs to hang up his boots, in fact he never should have even put them on, but he is a never-was, not a has-been.

    As pathetic as Virgil was and is.....he WAS on worldwide TV for years, featured on major historic pay per views, had an action figure released etc.

    There ARE never-was guys but I think Virgil qualifies as a definite has-been.

    OK but Virgil still wrestles.

    I can't really criticize and induct guys who HAVE had the self respect to stay retired.

    Was there a Ralphus action figure?

    Didn't he have a package one with Jericho at some point? Or was that just a skit I'm remembering?
