  • New Ruling for WWE Hall of Fame Inductions

    A new report from PWInsider.com has provided some new details on why Scott Hall is being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as “Razor Ramon” instead of his actual name. The report claims there are two main reasons the company is promoting Hall as “Razor Ramon” for the 2014 Hall of Fame.

    One, Vince McMahon is very proud of the character, as it was one of the first heel characters to get over so well the fans started cheering for the “bad guy.” The company even referenced this in the promotional video shown for “Razor Ramon” during the March 24 edition of “Monday Night Raw.” The opening narration in the video claims that, “Before the Rattlesnake. Before D-X. Before the Rock. One man proved that it could be good, to be bad,” in reference to Hall’s “Bad Guy” character of Razor Ramon.

    The second reason given to PWInsider.com by their source is that the company is trying to save future names to induct into the WWE Hall of Fame. They feel like big, notable names will continue to be what sells tickets to the induction ceremony, which is a highlight of the “WrestleMania Weekend” experience for ticket-buying “extreme” fans. In order for WWE to continue to have marquee names for future classes of the Hall of Fame, they’re likely going to be inducting more gimmicks first, if a superstar had multiple gimmicks that made an impact on the business.

    Razor Ramon will be inducted first, and it is expected that Hall will be inducted soon under his real name as part of either the Kliq, the Outsiders, or the nWo. WWE broke new ground inducting Ric Flair into the Hall of Fame twice, once as himself, then again with the Four Horsemen.

    With Paul Bearer being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year, we could easily see Percival Pringle III inducted in the future, as they’ve made no reference to Bill Moody every using the Percy Pringle gimmick on WWE TV. It seems that they’ve realized they may have to take short cuts such as inducting gimmicks to have enough names that will draw going forward into the future.

    Hall will be inducted into the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame on April 5 in New Orleans, along side of Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Paul Bearer, Lita, Ultimate Warrior, Carlos Colón, and Mr. T. Inducting Hall is likely to be the “Wolfpac,” Kevin Nash and “X-Pac” Sean Waltman. Waltman has said in previous interviews that he will be in New Orleans on April 5 to induct his good friend Hall into the WWE Hall of Fame.

    As I thought it was kind of obvious.

    So I guess Mick Foley will be the first ever thrice HOF inductee
    Who is the boss? Who made wrestling? Who is sports entertainment?

    I'm not sure I like this, it cheapens the hall of fame if you ask me. If their running out of names cut down on the amount of people you induct each year. Look how many huge name their inducting this year. I think their should be a maximum of 5 name per year.

        I think certain celebrities in there have already cheapened the Hall of Fame so it really makes no difference I guess...

            Surprised, then, they didn't do this with Foley...

            I mean, I could legitimately see a case that all three of his characters -- Cactus Jack, Mankind and Dude Love deserve Hall spots. Hell, his two different incarnations of Mankind deserve Hall spots...

                I don't believe the end of that report mainly because Foley went in as himself. I could believe that Vince does love the Razor gimmick and wanted to indict it.

                    god the whole thing would be cheapened sooo terribly if they take it that far with 3 foley inductions.

                    though one as their wwe persona like razor then as Hall under the group of the nWo id be ok with. but no more than that. you get one individual induction then another if its under a banner of a legendary group/team. and that group/team better be f'n special to warrant a 2nd HoF ring.

                        Agreed, I'm Ok with wrestlers going in twice if it's as an individual induction and then as a tag team/stable take for instance the group you mentioned (nWo), it makes sense for Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall (Razor Ramon) and Kevin Nash (Diesel) by themselves and as the nWo or Bret Hart going in individually and then as a member as The Hart Foundation (if they ever go in).

                            Guys who could possibly be inducted twice:

                            Bret Hart(Hart Foundation)
                            Hogan(NwO)
                            Hall(NwO)
                            Nash(NWO)
                            Michaels(DX)
                            HHH(DX)

                            I dont think they would go any further with Foley.
