    Sorry.. but no “we” don’t.

  3. deathedge says:

    Since WWE has gotten into the habit of focusing the HOF ceremony around 1 specific talent, I kind of hope Savage is put in in 2016…

  4. sayitagain says:

    Yes… “we” do.

  5. Josh Dionio says:

    Put Randy in at the 2015 ceremony with Miss Elizabeth and the Rock in at the 2016 ceremony.

  6. xpac says:

    Victoria!? WTF???

  7. scooter says:

    Says two internet porn junkies. Great.

  8. Sinnful says:

    Rikishi? You would put Rikishi in the hall before a bunch of legends who deserve a spot like Lex Luger, Rick Rude, British Bulldog, or Miss Elizabeth. C’mon on man!!!

    Look Lanny sucked as a performer and a personality. If there’s any truth that Randy can’t go in unless he does, Randy will never get in. I wouldn’t mind seeing Chyna get in but I can see kids googling her and not getting pleasant results and that doesn’t fit the PG mold at all. Miss Elizabeth is a no go because her folks won’t sign the contract. I think Mickie earned it but this new generation doesn’t get when you’ve held all the major belts, that means different Feds thought you could carry the brand.

    I wouldn’t let Nash in on general principle.

    Rock has been a company man, he gets in.

    Rikishi did a lot for the business when I was coming up. I would let him in because he’s a solid worker who could have been a champion anywhere else but chose to stay.

    They needed to get the Dudleys in before TNA. They are getting scooped on this one.

    @HoFPredictions

    To be fair to “The New Generation” do you really think WWE Management themselves gives two craps about who held the Knockouts title or who held SCW Divas title? I DO agree I think she’s earned it, but it would be based mostly (I WANT to say “solely” but I’ll be nice) on her WWE work.

    Why not with Nash HoF Predictions?!? Yes, the guy was a backstage politician, but he was a name, and then became a part of one of the biggest angles in wrestling history (nWo). I wouldn’t center a Hall of Fame ceremony on him, but he certainly deserves it at some point

  12. Scott II says:

    It as in getting in the Hall of Fame

    Excerpts from TBO: The Tampa Tribune April 1, 2014:

    McMahon, Poffo said, eventually bent, calling his brother with an offer to induct him in 2010. Savage said he would only accept if his father and brother were inducted alongside him. The WWE declined.

    “He wanted the Poffo family to go in,” Poffo said. “He knew it would mean a lot to my dad.”

    Shortly after the rejection, Savage’s father passed away. Poffo said the WWE never called to offer condolences.

    “It was about respect to our family. Randy was furious,” said Poffo. “He told me if anything ever happened to him, he should not be put into the Hall of Fame unless it was as the Poffo family.”

    A year later, Savage died at 58 of a severe form of irregular heartbeat while he was driving his car. His vehicle struck a tree. Investigators said he was dead before impact.

    WWE produced a touching video tribute, but Poffo said called it public relations to benefit the organization.

    “They again never personally offered condolences to my family,” he said. “My mother was hurt. They know our number and address.”

    Poffo said that in 2012 the WWE called him to ask about posthumously inducting Savage into the Hall of Fame.

    “They again did not say they were sorry for my father or brother’s passing, even though they had the chance” he said. “I told them that I would honor my brother’s wishes and only say yes if the entire Poffo family was inducted.”

    Poffo said he has softened his stance. He said he is offering an olive branch.

    This is no longer about his brother, his father or himself.

    “This is for the fans,” he said. “They want to honor Randy and see him get his respect. So if the WWE wants Randy in the Hall of Fame but not my father or me, they should do it.”

    Just don’t expect Poffo to attend.

    “Unless they call my mother and offer their condolences, I will not be there.”
