    ah carlos colon, wwe legend.
    what did he achieve in a wwf ring? 10 minutes in a royal rumble? why not induct max moon and be done with it.

  2. Mackdeezy says:

    No problem with this at all

  3. RJ Ace says:

    WWE has inducted several people who didn’t contribute to WWE or who were famous from other companies. Nick Bockwinkel, Verne Gagne, Antonio Inoki, Dusty Rhodes, and Harley Race are all examples. Vince McMahon said he felt it was WWE’s responsibility to recognize others since they were only major company left and he owned the trademarks and footage from those places.

  4. Kerry says:

    WWE inducts people who aren’t even wrestlers into their hall of fame & last year even scripted their acceptance speeches. In my opinion, it means nothing.

  5. kid vicious says:

    i’m with kerry on this one.
    they opened a whole can of worms by inducting bockwinkel, rhodes etc over their own stars like macho man and jake roberts.

    if they want to make it a universal hof where’s misawa and kobashi? if they want to keep it towards tv rights they own, where’s sting, arn anderson, larry zybysko? it’s way too political to be taken seriously.

    carlos colon in a wrestling hof, absolutley. in a wwe one.. there’s plenty of guys that should be ahead of him.

    With the way the laws work he provided promotion & insurance for all the WWE events in Puerto Rico. He wrestled for WWE in 1967/1968 as well as in the 90s, and his own promotion WWC has always had a close working relationship with the WWE & their wrestlers.

  7. mike m says:

    they should put him in with bruiser brody that would be funny

  8. Patrick says:

    The WWEHOF is like the RNRHOF….thoughtful, but pretty meaningless, and with some obvious names not inducted.

    The RNRHOF has yet to induct Rush, Kiss, Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Motorhead, Iron Maiden & about 1,000 other bands that deserve to be in, light years before Madonna, LL Cool J & The Beastie Boys.

    The WWEHOF isn’t nearly as bad in the same aspect, but the fact that Owen Hart isn’t in makes me sick.

  9. dave says:

    If the WWE consulted well known and respected wrestling writers and used career achievements and contributions and also had a round table of HOFers and company officials to collectively induct 5 guys a year we’d have the HOF we all want in no time but like some have alluded to this is too political and too biased but back to the original news post: Carlos Colon does deserve an induction and I fully expect Macho Man to be the main inductee this year along side Edge possibly. Just a feeling

  10. Holy Cow says:

    2 words.

    Bruiser Brody.

    Let’s induct Invader #1 while were at it and we can get those two plus Tony Atlas together to all claim they knew nothing or that it was self defense. Bastards.

  11. david r. says:

    That’s true, about the whole close working relationship between WWC and WWE, and he is only going in because of his son’s and nephew’s success.

  12. bill says:

    i agree carlos colon deserve to be inducted and macho man should and better be inducted this year same for edge he should be inducted
    as for owen hart who does more then deserve to be in the hall of fame
    the problem is his widow who has total control of his name and and everything containing to owen will not let wwe inducted him into the
    wwe and will not allow him to use likeness for games or dvds she sued wwe
    and hart family for using and mentioning his name on hart family dvd and bret hart dvds and have won every case so it is not the wwe fault they have been trying to induct him for years even before bret was inducted and before his father was inducted it is his widows fault because she wont allow it so as long as she continue to hate and bad mouth wwe and vince mcmahon she will not allow wwe to induct owen hart
    and i also agrees that jake the snake roberts should be inducted

  13. mike m says:

    Tony Atlas has to put them in lol

  14. Fisha695 says:

    Now that I think about it, the HOF is taking place in Miami this time, and well according to what I hear on TV & see online Miami has a huge Hispanic Population… With that in mind having Carlos Colon Sr & Mil Máscaras makes sense trying to sell ticket wise. (though due to their contributions to Wrestling they do deserve to be in).

    As for Edge, I still don’t think he’s done wrestling, remember HBK & Austin (among others) were done with severe back/neck injuries at one time too, or so they thought. Honestly I’d rather see Edge wait until the next time WM swings back up around closer to (or into) Canada.

    I would like to see Randy Savage, his brother Lanny & their father Angelo all inducted at the same time and done by Jimmy Hart. However too like with Edge I don’t think that Miami would be a good place for this, when I think of Randy in WWE the first image that pops into my head is WM3 at the Pontiac Silverdome. Being that Randy & Angelo were born in the Midwest and that Lanny was billed from that region for most of his career it’d be fitting to see them get inducted the next time WM is held out in that part of the country.

  15. Big Dave says:

    Carlos colon has been a promoter in puerto Rico for wwe going way back 30 plus years to not recognize his contribution to the wwe product would be a slap in the face

  16. Jonathon says:

    Wasn’t Carlos Colon a former Intercontinental Champion??? I mean, he wasn’t the best ever but come on, it’s not like he did nothing in the business.

  17. david r. says:

    Don’t know about the IC title, but I do know he held the Universal title (I believe that’s a unification of the WWC and NWA titles) more times than Flair held world titles. That’s an ongoing rumor in Puerto Rican wrestling, this kinda rivalry between Flair and Colon. According to it, Colon had to have more title reigns and would only retire when Flair retired. Cost him I don’t know how many surgeries in the past 10 – 15 years, but he did it.

  18. Drew says:

    Even though Carlos Colon isn’t actually a murderer, it still seems like he was involved in the death of Bruiser Brody. For those of you who disagree, read the words of Dutch Mantell:

    Drew Carry > Max Moon > Carlos Colon

    He is the greatest Royal Rumble Entry OF ALL TIME.
