Every year during WrestleMania weekend, the WWE inducts a handful of wrestling legends into the Hall of Fame, something that has increasingly become a huge honor in the business. In 2017, the names that highlight the list are Rick Rude, Kurt Angle, and Diamond Dallas Page (even with DDP spending the bulk of his wrestling career outside of the WWE). As the Hall of Fame grows, there are still some notable standouts that the WWE has failed to put into the Hall so far, for various reasons — some professional and some personal. Let’s take a take a 14 wrestlers who still aren’t members, even though they likely will be someday.
14. The Rock
Hey, did you know that The Rock is not actually a member of the WWE Hall of Fame? While he did induct his father and grandfather into the Hall several years ago, The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment and the biggest mainstream movie star wrestling has ever produced has never been inducted himself. We could run through his accolades if you want, but they’re pretty well-known, and let’s face it, if you haven’t heard of The Rock, we’re not sure where you’ve been for the last twenty years. Clearly, the day will come one year where they’ll need a headliner and The Rock will be free in between making six dozen movies a year, but for now, it’s a curious oversight that has kept Rock on the outside looking in.
