5 WWE Stars Who Will Never Be Inducted Into The WWE Hall of Fame!
Some people are unsure what to think of the WWE Hall of Fame. To those that are inducted, it can be the stamp of approval for all of their time spent in the squared circle, but not everyone feels this way, which is great because some of those might never get inducted.
Chris Benoit is probably the most controversial star when it comes to deciding whether or not he should be inducted into the hall of fame, as people seem to be split when it comes to his astonishing 22-year career and the tragic end to his life as well as his wife and son. Many wrestlers alike such as Steve Austin claim that what he did that night will “overshadow every accomplishment Chris had in the ring.” Due to this controversy, it’s likely that WWE will never induct Chris Benoit.
While he has been inducted into the pro wrestling hall of fame, Big Poppa Pump, Scott Steiner, will probably not be inducted into the WWE hall of fame. He has been known to be a jerk backstage and was even banned from WWE events in 2015, as security guards were given orders to make sure he stays out. When Steiner was asked about returning to WWE, he said that they would have to give him a lot of money for that to happen. He has made terrible remarks about many people and will likely not be rewarded a hall of fame induction for being the genetic freak.
Honky Tonk Man
The Honky Tonk Man has stated in interviews that he is not only unsure that he will ever be inducted, and he even claimed to have denied WWE’s offer to induct him. Honky Tonk Man has made it clear that he doesn’t agree with the process used to induct people, but he also seemed to be flattered by the phone call from John Laurinaitis, saying that he appreciated the offer. But he couldn’t due to contractual obligations in Toronto for the Wizard World Conventions. He went on to say that declining that offer makes him feel as though he might never get that invitation again.
Zeus is the movie character professional wrestler turned real-life professional wrestler. Starring in the movie No Holds Barred, Zeus was the antagonist to Hulk Hogan, who from the popularity of the movie, would go on to have an actual match in the main event of Wrestlemania. Now, what makes this not as ridiculous is the fact that it was a tag team match also involving Randy Savage and Brutus Beefcake. He was involved in two more matches and losing to Hulk Hogan at the pay per view event.
When Bobby Lashley was running through guys in WWE, fans quickly made the assumption that this guy is the next Brock Lesnar. And those fans had a fair argument, seeing as though Lashley had been paired with the likes of Vince McMahon and was being given a dominant run as the ECW World champion. It looked as though a golden path filled with rainbows and sunshine had been laid out for Bobby until he decided to leave shortly after pursuing the WWE championship. He said that “Circumstances which are out of my control left me no decision but to leave the WWE. One reason as to why Lashley wanted his release was due to reported issues with Michael Hayes, who is believed to have played a hand in scrapping plans for Lashley to face off against Randy Orton for the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania.
