Thread: WS' Hall of Fame Nominations

  1. #1

    WS' Hall of Fame Nominations

    Starting now, nominations will now be open for Wrestling Society's Hall of Fame. First, let's go over the categories:


    Categories

    Wrestler - Two wrestlers will be inducted. They can be male or female, but they have to be wrestlers.

    Non-Wrestler
    - One man/woman will be inducted to honor their contributions in their non-wrestling role. Whether they're a promoter, announcer, commentator, manager, valet or referee.

    Tag Team - One tag team (2 members) will be inducted as a showcase of their contributions to the art of tag team wrestling.


    Qualifications


    1983
    - That is the deadline for when the wrestler could make their debut. In other words, everyone nominated must be at least a 25 year old name. This isn't a Hall of Fame for the best currently, so for this first round of inductions, the nomination must have either been a rookie or been wrestling in or before 1983. However, that's just the starting point. You can nominate someone who debuted in 1980 and is still wrestling today.

    10 Years - Everyone nominated must have been active for 10 years.

    3 Years - *For Tag Team only* Each tag team nominated must have been a tag team for at least 3 full years. They did not need to start teaming before 1983 though. Both have to follow qualification number 1 though.

    Reasons - This is to be taken serious, so please give reasons for each nomination.


    Nominations


    3 Picks - You may nominate up to three picks for Non-Wrestler and Tag Team.

    5 Picks - You may nominate up to three picks for Wrestler.

    Repeats
    - Please do not repeat any previous nominated wrestler


    Deadline


    Sunday April 6th 11:59 PM EST
    - Is when nominations will be closed.
    ------


    Monday April 7th, I will start up the voting threads. Be sure to read the directions of how to vote. It will not be a simple vote for one option thread.

    Until then, nominations are now open. Please use the following template:

    Wrestler
    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.
    5.

    Non-Wrestler

    2.
    3.

    Tag Team

    *Remember, you do not need to nominate the maximum number of slots.*

    Wrestler -

    Jumbo Tsuruta - One of the greatest wrestlers to ever step into the ring. Pretty much layed the foundations and set the standard for every Japanese wrestler since. His influence is felt not only in Japan, but in the US too.

    Stan Hansen - Again, one of the best wrestlers ever. Probably the first american worker to gain major sucess outside of the US, and led the way for pretty much every gajin since. Also created the lariat, so you know he's awesome.

    Terry Funk - A man who has been wrestling for over 4 decades and has been able to constantly re-invent himself and stay popular. Gained sucess everywhere he went, has been the major player in several companies, and has been apart of some of wrestling's most memorable moments. Led the way for pretty mcuh every "hardcore" wrestler and so much more.

    El Hijo Del Santo - Arguably the greatest mexican wrestler of all time. Was born into a legendary name and has done everything in his power to not only live up to it, but surpass it. He is an icon and has remianed popular and a top star wherever he went since pretty much the begining of his career. Took part in one of the greatest matches ever (imo) and is pretty much the definition of the word legend.

    Mil Mascaras - Hands down one of, if not the most influential wrestler ever. He may have been an ass, but without Mil there would be no Jushin Liger, no Ultimo Dragon, no Tiger Mask, etc. Pretty much made the whole idea of wrestling under a mask what it is today. His influence will always be felt.



    Tag Team -

    The Road Warriors - as mentioned previously, one of the most influential tag teams ever who remianed popular and iconic to this day.

    Ricky Steamboat - Possibly one of the greatest ring workers of our time. He was the original show stealer. He was the first person to stay face throughout his long and lustrious career.

    The Hart Foundation - Please take this. You have Hart and Neidhart, who dominated the tag team division for the longest time. Then you have later fill-ins like Davey Boy, Owen, and Pillman

I can honestly say that I have never had anything I would call a bad blowjob, that wasn't a great experience but up until I started gushing blood I was having a great time!

    Wrestler - Ric Flair. We all know what he's accomplished in the business, he's sacrificed alot aswell.

    Non-wrestler - Stu Hart. (For his contributions as a Promoter/Trainer). Can you imagine wrestling without the the Harts? Without talents like the Dynamite Kid, Curt Henning, Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho? I sure can't.

    This HOF has nothing to do with past forum's HOF's.


    He debuted in 1986, 3 years past the cut off year.

    Terry Funk, people talk about Flair wrestling for over 30 years, well Terry's done the same, he was a great wrestler in the NWA and had to reinvent his style to suit the hardcore direction of ECW, and even at 50+ became ECW World champion, and in simular fashion as Flair, made a career of getting the young guys over.

    Cactus Jack/Mick Foley, very underrated when it comes to in ring talent, the guy had an ingenious mind, and could use that to cut great promos and tell a good story, sure, he may have een inolved in what may seem to be the most overrated match in history, but to say he's not one of the best wrestlers in the past or so decade is a bit blind.


    Non wrestlers -

    Vince McMahon, love him or hate him he took wrestling and made it bemoe the major phenom that it is today

    edit: just realised Heyman isn't eligible so taken him out
