6 time champion Randy Savage hasn't been inducted nor has Bruno Sammartino.

Yet other far less deserving inductees have.
Savage's wife won't let him, Bruno doesn't want to be entered, and judging by Punk's reign I'd say Vince likes him. I think ppl aren't aware of the HOF's low standards. There used to be few world champions, but still, A LOT OF NON-WORLD CHAMPIONS are in the HOF. So, Punk's definitely in.

The question really is will he be one of the one or two guys who are the showcase guys for that class, to sell that yr's ceremony/broadcast. I'd say yes to this as well, frankly, cuz he's one of the two most popular guys of his generation (2011-???), but we'll see if Ziggler or somebody else enters that discussion as well. Still, will probably headline his class for business reasons, especially if Chicago hosts a Mania/HOF ceremony. WWE would love to milk that market, and they love Punk.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa
NJPW: Okada, Nakamura, Styles ROH: Briscoes, Fish and O'Reilly, Young Bucks
All-Time: Rock, Punk, Lesnar, Angle
