No. They have tons to go and they're constantly making new ones.

This is also why I don't panic like most people when somebody doesn't go in, they just get saved for a later year, like Bruno.

No, there's numerous superstars from the current roster who could get in, not to mention the many many alumni's who are yet to be inducted.

I wonder when McMahon himself will go in? I can't believe he hasn't put himself in yet to be honest. Then again, who'd have thought Edge would get in before The Rock & Mick Foley.

I realise where they're going and that WWE will push Roman Reigns straight to the top. However for me, Dean Ambrose is by far the most talented in that group and I think eventually if they just give him the spotlight then he's going to shine. As soon as he touches a mic everyone else can just sit down as he's magic on it. So It remains to be seen, I think they're all talented but to me Dean was the star of that group. I think Roman looks like the star of that group but I don't think he's nearly as talented as Dean.

I think Arn Anderson is already in it. Benoit will never get in for what he did to his family.

At 6-8 a yr, that will run out. And Chris Benoit does not belong in the Hall of Fame.

They'll start bringing in names from the attitude era and all that too.

Default Re: Will the WWE run out of hall of fame names?

I don't think they will ever run out, but they will get to a stage where it's wearing thin. People can list all of those not in the HOF, but how many of them are actual headline inductees in modern times?

Everyone on the list above warrants an induction for the most part, but how many will go in as Head of their class? I know you don't necessarily need it if they all deserve it, but a Class of, say, Rick Martel, The Jarretts, Mae Young, Magnum TA and Shaq would be hugely underwhelming.

If they throw 2 big inductions in a year, they will run out. Inducting 6 a year is way too many in my eyes, and this year so far has been the best & most acceptable Class in many years where so far each and every inductee could, theoretically, headline on their merits alone. (There's still a couple to go though I suppose.)

Inducting Celebrities who appeared for one night or so, Rourke for instance, would be a complete and utter joke and if he went in, you know it would be for his Name alone. Not even he would take it seriously.
