Super Early HoF Predictions~!

Because it’s never too early to speculate! The 2012 WWE Hall of Fame will emanate from the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida. This year there were seven inductees, so I’ll be using that formula. I have also read that the WWE wants to induct a celebrity and a Diva each year (I just hope they realize that each category will run out very, very soon). So here we go!

1) The Rock – I firmly believe the only reason Mania is going back to Florida so soon is because they needed a reason to get the Rock. From all accounts (the Legacy of Wrestlemania DVD) going outdoors for WM24 was a huge risk and cost a lot of money. Rock has never been that open in returning, even in a cameo role like he ended up doing, so I’d assume the WWE said, “You know, Rock, we could go to Miami for Mania and put you in the Hall next year.” He’s unlikely to ever make a full time return, and now that the new generation of fans know him, it’s totally appropriate.
Inducted By: “Stone Cold” Steve Austin

2) “Macho Man” Randy Savage – This is occurs as more of a “well, now we have to.” It is such a shame that we will never have the opportunity to see the Macho Man one last time, as I’m sure his acceptance speech would be one of the all time best. For whatever reason, Vince doesn’t like Savage for a multitude of reasons and rumors. But he would put all of that aside in order to make a dollar, and he would make several off of Savage going in the Hall. Had he not passed, Savage would no doubt be the number one guy in any given year, but since he would not be there to accept, he is relegated into the number two spot. I would assume both his wife and brother, The Genius Lanny Poffo would accept on his behalf.

3) Miss Elizabeth – This year the WWE promoted Sunny as the original Diva. Well, they were wrong. While we can all say that every Diva is hot, Elizabeth was beautiful. She was the first woman to be heavily involved in the storylines, at times it seemed like she was just as important as Savage and whomever he was fighting at the time. Another unfortunate posthumous inductee, it only makes sense to have her enter the Hall with Randy Savage. And hey, everyone can admit it, we all got a little teary eyes when Macho and Liz got back together.
Inducted By: Trish Stratus

Oh hey, there’s more…after THE JUMP

4) Ron Simmons – What’s a Hall of Fame without a local guy? Not to say that Simmons is just a local guy, but it helps. He played college football at Florida State University, eventually leading them into back-to-back Orange Bowls, being inducted into the Orange Bowl Hall of Fame, the College Football Hall of Fame, and being only the third person in school history to have his jersey number retired. He was a powerhouse in wrestling, being the first ever black World Heavyweight Champion of any major company. When he got to the WWE, he made even bigger waves as the leader of the Nation of Domination, and then dominated the tag division with Bradshaw for years. Most know him for “DAMN!” but he was oh so much more.

5) Demolition – Now that the Road Warriors are in, this is arguably the next big team from that era. As soon as they arrived on the scene, Demolition just demolished everyone. Every team the WWE had to offer up, Demolition did work and destroyed. They where the first team to win three Tag Titles, and their first reign alone lasted 478 days! There’s not many other teams out there that really revolutionized tag wrestling like they did.
Inducted By: Arn Anderson, with whom they had excellent matches with.

6) Dick Ebersol – The Celebrity Inductee. Truthfully, even if they didn’t feel the need to induct a celebrity, Ebersol actually deserves it. He was in charge of NBC Sports, which brought Saturday Night’s Main Event to NBC in the 1980’s, helping propel the WWE to never before seen heights. And while it was a huge failure, he also helped create the XFL. And I’m sure he was instrumental in helping the WWE come back to the NBC Universal Networks in 2005. If it weren’t for Ebersol, wrestling may not have been what it was.
Inducted By: Vince McMahon

7) The Brooklyn Brawler – And finally, the Brooklyn Brawler. Did he have a spectacular career filled with championships and main events at MSG? No. He lost the majority of the matches in his career, and never won a major title. But he was damn good at getting his ass beat. Except for that one time he beat the then-WWE Champion Triple H on Smackdown. He’s “enjoyed” a long career and has been working backstage for years. If Verne Gagne, who never stepped foot in a WWE ring and waged war on the promotion, can get inducted, there’s no reason a true company man like Brawler cannot.
Inducted By: John Cena, because of Brawler’s collaboration on Cena’s old WWE.com show

    And to steve: koko b ware is in the Hall. as is johnny rodz, Mad Dog Vachon, Dory Funk Jr and several others who didnt have HoF careers. not to mention all the celebrities. instead of criticizing, why don’t you actually do your job (which is writing, right?) and tell us why shouldn’t the Brawler go in?

  6. HEY GUYS I FOUND YOUR PAGE! ADD ME!

  7. Steve McGregor

    I honestly can’t believe people, like you, who point to the WWE Hall of Fame as if it’s legitimate. Do you honestly believe in your heart of hearts that this thing is legit enough to discern who the best of the best of alltime in the business is. How do you explain Bob bloody Uecker getting in over the bloody Macho Man or Wendi Richter over the likes of the Ultimate Warrior, seriously? Just because Vince has had a bug up his arse and can’t deal with his own ego means that these greats can’t be recognized among the best. It’s a bloody marketing device used to sell tickets to a show, no more, no less. If it were legit we would have more inductions of people that deserve it, Ultimate Warrior, and less waste, Drew Carey, etc. Don’t tell me how to do my bloody job, because I can write circles around you nancy boys! This site….DOG’S DINNER!

  8. You still didn’t explain why Brooklyn Brawler shouldn’t be in…While KoKo B. Ware, Rodz and others are…

    In my opinion, The Brawler is in because there has never been a better/more “successful” jobber in the History of the company…He had longevity, and played an important roll putting guys over…

  9. Hey any Viper fans can Like us here and I’ll make sure you will get likes too! If you can help us out please!
