    Not really. He didn’t really do all that much. Yeah we remember the gimmick, but that’s it. The gimmick. The gimmick really made him in the WWF, as opposed to him making the gimmick. Yes, he left a little bit of a mark, but not really much of a big one

    don’t you mean the hall of fame Steve?

  4. cc says:

    Absolutely! He might not have had any big achievment(s) but he was one of a kind and could never be duplicated! Did outstanding with his role as well.

  5. Kid Vicious says:

    The Doink character was horrible, and kudos to Matt Borne for making something of it. Shame the WWF didn’t run with it more like his Borne Again gimmick in ECW. Good in the ring, and could more than hold his own with a promo, but would he be in consideration for the HOF if he was alive? What did he have, 3 consecutive years in the big two? That’s not enough of a legacy to ever be HOF worthy.

  6. Josh Dionio says:

    I say yes. Second generation wrestler, well known in the Pacific Northwest due to his work as well as his dad, Matt was saddled with the Big Josh gimmick in WCW and then Doink the Clown. Now, on paper Doink shouldn’t have worked, but Matt took the character and made it his own. Hell, RD Reynolds of and co-author of The Death of WCW has stated many times he would never induct Matt’s version of the character as wrestle crap. Also, he was on the first WrestleMania card, a thing not many people can state.

    People need to take into consideration that he was wrestling long before Doink was even thought of.

  8. Scott II says:

    As much as the Doink character is famous, no. I wouldn’t put him in the Hall of Fame
