Re: If you could remove wrestlers from WWE HOF
Well, it's all or nothing IMO. Murder is murder. So if they erase Benoit because it's "wrong to promote him" (although in reality it's because Vince holds grudges and they don't want to remind anyone of the tragedy), it only makes sense to do the same for Snuka, who may have never done time for it but still remains the only suspect in the open case.
why not go the xxx-2 route and induct him as the wrestler who shall not be named or faced
JYD was one of the top 2-3 faces through much of his WWE run and was a bonafied Main Eventer in the Midsouth.
Koko B Ware also made Vince a shit ton of money with the piledriver song despite being a jobber to the stars. The guy got huge pops wherever he went he just didn't know "how to play the game".
Big John Studd was like a main event side attraction nowhere ever near a midcard guy.
And without George The Animal Steele the Macho Man maybe never get's over.
money and side shows do not account for wrestlers that truely made it, sorry
Say what you want about sunny's life decisons etc, but she deserves to be in there...
As far as the other guys like George the animal steele, BJS, etc. Wrestling was different then, These guys were all big stars, even Koko, although he is debatable... Fans loved them, they sold tons of merch, and helped draw. Not everyone got 20 different titles in their career like they do today. And most of the people listed here were 'special attraction' singles guys who were over already and didn't need titles.
Johnny Rodz- I think he got the nod more for his training of other wrestlers rather than his career...
wrestling should be a sport, who did it in the ring, in the hall of fame
