I'm not sure who's in it tbh, but I would like to see Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit honoured if they're not already.

Yep, WWE have disowned Benoit in every way possible (even going so far as removing references to him in commentary on old matches when they appear on DVD) because of the murder & steroids scandal.

Added the full HoF list to the first post as well.

You know I get that but that shouldn't take away the ability Benoit had as a wrestler and how entertaining he was when we watched him.

The Rock, Mick Foley and HHH should be definate future HoF's.

It's a shame for Benoit. I have big respect for his work.

It doesn't but any mention of Benoit now is linked to the events of 2007. You can just imagine the mainstream coverage that WWE would get - "WWE honours murderer" are the kind of headlines Vince wants to avoid.

I hope that was a joke... :? It's like saying Grandmaster Sexay should be a Hall of Famer.

BOO!!!!

(I get it, you were joking... :deadpool: )

Benoit will not, Everybody else has already explained why. Too much negativity.

With Bret now in, how about Owen Hart already?
Magnum T.A., LOD (Road Warriors), Bulldogs, Muta, Inoki, Giant Baba, Carlos Colon, & Rick Rude are a few that come to mind. Keep in mind that the WWE Hall of Fame now encompasses wrestling in general.

Pretty damn sad that Bruno Sammartino will not likely be inducted till after he passes away just cause he wants nothing to do with Vince.
