Re: If randy orton retires today, do you consider him a hall of famer?
I don't get the Drew Carey mentions. The celebrity wing of WWE's HOF is obviously a joke. Not sure why they started that to begin with, but it's there and the list of high caliber celebs that worked for them in a physical capacity is slim. Expect Mickey Rourke in there too. It's just how the Cookie crumbles.
As for the OP question. Yes, Orton will make it into the Hall of Fame. Not only will he make it because he's deserving, but because he's been a high profile main eventer for them, and that's a major sell when you want to spotlight the show. The only reason he'd be left out is if he was on bad terms with them ala' Bruno, Warrior and Savage.
Bruno doesn't want in (they're begging him), and Savage's widow won't let them induct him (and somehow has a say in it).
