    Not looking for sure things that will get in whenever the timing is right (Taker, Rock, Jericho etc)

    Not looking for people being held out for major controversial reasons or extenuating circumstances (Benoit, Owen)

    Not looking for people already on the radar (Vader, Chyna)

    Looking for people that don't get a lot of buzz regarding the HOF that you think should go in. My picks:

    William Regal- great character in his day, still extremely relevant to today's product
    Mike Chioda- Should be the first ref in. (Yes even over Hebner)
    King Kong Bundy- Super recognizable. Mega heel from the first WWF Boom.

    Who ya got?

    Most I assume will go in eventually even though still amazed Bam Bam and Earthquake aren't. Maybe someone like Chris Nowinski?

    Males: this is where it gets tricky because there are a lot of people already mentioned and a lot of big men that aren’t in yet that should be. Considering the range of people in the HOF and using the Koko B. Ware scale, you have a lot more guys that could go in. IRS, Kevin Sullivan, Regal, Goldust, Bob Holly, Dean Malenko are some to consider

    At some point they can also put in people from the creative end like Prichard, Gewirtz.

    Eventually Refs like Chioda, Nick Patrick, Hebner, Charles Robinson

    Wendall Cooley is the only name that matters.

    You stole my gimmick u sumbitch

    Since theyve basically said screw it to only doing WWE guys, theres quite a few out there that would be good options, some worked for WWE, some not, and fuc!< only listing three:

    Ivan Koloff (how in the HELL is he not in?)
    Brody
    Muta
    Haystacks Calhoun
    Corny
    Lou Thesz
    Danny Hodge
    Andy Kaufman
    Ray Stevens
    Wahoo McDaniel
    Tommy Rich (sentimental pick for me, I saw him live in 83ish, and there was NO ONE hotter in wrasslin, the place went. . . Banana for him)

    Isn't Haystacks in that new subsection they added? The legacy wing or something to that effect?

    Hansen is in already.

    She’s not. She inducted ivory last year so that might be what you are thinking of.

    Totally agree with Koloff.

    Robinson is a great choice.

    Couldn't agree more about Rich. Was a huge Wildfire mark as a kid.

    Aw, who am I kidding? I'm still a mark.

    Kevin Dunn.

    Say what you will about him, but think about how long he has been there and, how many iconic shots he has had a hand in.

    Agreed with Chioda, I also think Tim White is a shoe-in for referees.

    Skandor Akbar and Gary Hart on the managers side of things.

    Is Marty Jannetty in yet? Fuck it, put him in if not!
