    Default WWE Hall of Fame credibility- Has it changed or what needs to happen for it to have i

    Simple question. Does the HOF mean anything and is it more credible now or does it still need to do a few things to be taken as a real HOF to some?
    Who is the boss? Who made wrestling? Who is sports entertainment?

    Put up a physical building and then it's as perfect as it can be.

    They have no control over the Savage and Owen stuff, so you can't count that against them.

    Agreed on the building. It's the last step aside from Warrior and Savage being inducted.
    It's showtime, folks!

    I seen some feel that there should be a committee should have a criteria and not just the boss on who gets into the HOF to prevent the future having only one person being the appointed chooser of who gets in or not.

    I don't agree with that. I think the way they do it now is fine.

    I disagree in general with the idea that WWE's Hall of Fame process should be similar to that of a legitimate sport.

    True and it is a coup that it has happened when he is alive. Makes a huge difference.

    Yeah I see the positives and negatives of the way the process works now. I also see there being problems with a committee too.

    Mil Mascaras, Verne Gagne, Nick Bockwinckel and Antonio Inoki say Hi.
    Plus there is a wrestling HOF that meets every year and they are better than the E's because they already inducted STAN HANSEN!!!!

    Didn't Vince say he was planning on putting up a physical building, they just had no idea WHERE to put it up?

    Also, as well as Savage & Warrior, Andy Kaufman, Brian Pillman and Rick Rude not being in yet is as big a travesty.

    I say just put up a physical building and they would be set.

    There are tons of people the should be inducted, but they either will be in time, or it is out of WWE's hands & you can't blame them.

    A physical building and the induction of Thesz are the two big ones left IMO. That's unless Warrior has stopped being a nutcase. Savage and Owen's family have all the control in their situation so WWE can't do anything about it.

    I say it's pretty damn legit now since Bruno is in...while he's ALIVE to accept. Warrior & Savage will cement it's legitimacy. A real building will be the final icing.

    I don't see a real HOF building ever being built. I just don't see it being profitable and would probably be really boring. Whats going to be there Andre's ring gear, Hogans boots, old ring ropes???

    I just don't see it.

    It would be like every other Hall of Fame building with historical artifacts & plaques highlighting the hall of famers.

    Other hall of fame buildings are profitable and I think a WWE HOF Building would be.

    It could also have exhibits highlights the whole history of the WWE or even wrestling.

    I'm as big of a MLB fan as anyone and I found Cooperstown very underwhelming. I think that would be the case here, especially for kids.

    If anything I think there would need to be wrestling present, possibly have a developmental territory attached. Along with a WWE Shoppe, which they used to have I think in NYC.

    I'm just curious how Owen and Savage's family have the right to prevent someone being honored. How does that work legally?

    Why do people keep mentioning Owen? Have they been trying to get him in? (I dont follow too much of the Hart stuff)

    I don't see the point of a physical build, or rather, don't see the huge necessity for it.

    Well what exactly is it you were expecting? Hall of fames are just museums. There's not too much more you can, or should do with it.

    I think it would be neat. Maybe have replicas(Or originals if they have any) of all the past championship belts. Bring back the ice cream bars and have a concession stand, and like was said earlier, a shop to buy merchandise. And everyone once and a while, perhapse once a week or twice a months or something, they could have a current or past superstar there to give tours and sign autographs. I'd definitely go there if that happened.
